Question

HI,

 

I have an Apple Mac OSx Version 10.5.8 & have just purchased easy VHS to DVD for mac with Toast 9 basis. When capturing the video the picture showing on the small box next to the record button is perfect quality. However when transferring it to Toast or i movies it loses quality. I have tried burning it to DVD & the quality is not any different still very poor. Can anybody give me any ideas. I am not using s-video would this make a difference I am not sure as I said before the initial recording screen shows a very clear picture. Any help would be appreciated. I am not very good with computers so layman's language please !!!

If you are viewing the DVD on your Mac make sure you are viewing it in actual size or normal size. If you are watching it in a full screen view then it will look poor because it is being zoomed to a much larger size. Check how the DVD looks when played on a TV with a DVD player. There is nothing that can be done to adjust the picture quality other than choose the higher-quality setting, but it should look similar to the quality of the source video when that source is played directly on a TV. An S-video connection should yield slightly better quality.
