Recommended Posts

:) I have just installed dvd burner and with it received roxio dvd basic home. I also have creator six that i've used for burning music cd. My problem has to do with Quality. I've catured the same video several times from a digital video camera, burned my project, played it on the dvd player hooked to the t.v. (brand new) and the quality is terrible. The video doesn't flow smoothly. I used the basic home edition and the creator 6. I'm using sony dvd+r media. Can someone help me out..........ty

Quality is base on 3 things, Source Quality, capture settings and output quality.

 

Assuming you used a Firewire and captured with Builder you would have a DV AVI file of the best quality. That leaves output quality.

 

With V6, Best Quality is achieved only when you set it to Low Compression. This will limit you to about 65 minutes on one 4.7gb DVD.

 

I suspect you set it High Compression or Automatic, neither will work as well as Low Compression.

I'm focusing on this part of the original post, played it on the dvd player hooked to the t.v. (brand new) and the quality is terrible. The video doesn't flow smoothly. The part about the video flowing smoothly, does that mean that it's pixelated, lots of compression artifacts, or that playback is jerky. If the former, then the capture and compression are probably the issues. If the latter, then it could simply be a player/media mismatch and his DVD player simply might not like the type/brand of disc being used.

 

Does the DVD look any better if you play it back on your PC? If so, then I would strongly suggest trying a different brand or type (DVD-R instead of DVD+R) of disc and see if your DVD player likes it any better. Also, make sure the firmware in your DVD writer is the latest available.

 

Hope that helps!
