project settings in mydvd8

Question

Hi

I recently made a dvd and was very unhappy with the results. So just decided to change the settings...I unchecked the fit to disk and chose best quality video is 720x480 ( its NTSC here in Canada) the bitrate 9.00 ... I dont know if i could or should change it? where I am kind of puzzled is to chose Interlaced or Progressive.... does anyone know what would be my best option to get the best quality for a DVD to play on the TV.... thank you for any help

I've had the best luck choosing best quality and if the file is too large, let it be. Burn to an ISO and use Disc Copier to fit to disc. Seems to work better for me as does interlaced.

hmmm... The video is about 50 minutes long and I would like to make the setting for burning an iso file... I always make an iso file first than copy it.... it was fit to disk and interlaced on default but I ended up with bad video quality and lots of vertical lines in the video.... the video is ok i tried it from my camcorder on the tv.... so I think its the Interlaced but I am not shure... but thank you for the reply

IF you are referring to 'jaggy' vertical lines, that is caused by watching an interlaced video on a progessive device like your monitor. Those lines will not be visible on a regular TV which is also interlaced.

 

If you are talking about something else like vertical lines that shouldn't be there at all, then you may be having a video card problem.

those where horizotal lines which kept on coming..... I watched it on TV not the computer and tried it on 3 tvs but all the same.... so I will just try progessive and then see what happens .... it just takes so long to encode and my husband started played a video game so it kind of got stuck... now I have to do it over :)

Not a good idea to even touch the computer while a production is encoding. :):huh:

I am so lost ..... I made this one movie so many times now.... after choosing progessive in the settings, now instead of lines I have little boxes.... if I make the video in roxio 7 it seems to be fine.... but roxio 8 (mydvd) the quality is so bad.....

I really want to make the video with good results in roxio 8 due to wide screen recording.... thats why i basically purchased roxio 8 for the widescreen features.... maybe there is something in the setting I am doing wrong, to test different setting it takes about 4 hours to make a new dvd... I tried some and really tired of it! is there anything I can do to make good quality video with mydvd8 ? please help

You should do testing with smaller files. You also have an older Geforce 3 video card which was designed for a previous version of DirectX. The new drivers will make it 'compatible' with DirectX 9, but it can not support some of the latest DirectX commands that Videowave and MyDVD may use.

 

Make sure you have the latest nVidia drivers and the latest DirectX.
