Encoding Of Avi By Toast 11 Resulted In Bad Quality Dvd. Why?

Question

Hi all,

 

I'm new to Mac and after some research and a few recommendations, I've opted for Toast Titanium 11 to burn my DVDs.

My first "toast" resulted in a very low quality DVD although the original files (AVI) were of very good quality.

 

At first, when dragging and dropping the AVI files onto Toast, I got the message that the Xvid codec was missing. Someone recommended that I download Perian to extend the codecs of QuickTime. After installing Perian, Toast did finally recognize the AVI files.

 

However, the result was disappointing. The quality of the video on my final DVD is jittery and of low quality. What am I doing wrong? Or is it the encoding process that is the culprit? Do I need to change some specific settings in Toast so as to get a better quality DVD?

 

Thanks for your help.

What is the resolution and frame rate of the AVI video (e.g. 640x480, 30 fps)? Is the video from the DVD jittery and low quality when played with a DVD player connected to a TV?
