Video Copy and Convert is an easy one to use. Expand the Options and set what you want ;)

(sorry, the Compression can be set to WMV and not just MPEG2 as I have here)

 

Otherwise, VW uses a Variable Bit Rate (VBR) for WMM files and all you can do is select the one that is the closest match to the Resolution you want to output.

Thanks Jim, I'm using VideoWave because it's easier to chain WMV files and edit the commercials compared to VCC. Do you know what choices in VW will give me WMV file format? Thanks for all your help on the Roxio forums. You've been a great helpful resource for everyone.

Try both 4.3 and 16.9 to see if there are differences.

Dont bother making my own template? I did a test using your advice:

 

I used "Windows Media 8 Video High Qualitybased VBR for Broadband"

 

The result of the file:

 

Width: 320

Height: 240

Data rate: 447 kbps

Total bitrate: 511 kbps

Frame rate: 30 frames/second

Audio:

Bit rate: 611 kbps

Channels: 2 (stereo)

Audio sample rate: 44 kHz

 

I then used VCC:

 

Width: 320

Height: 240

Data rate: 8000 kbps

Total bitrate: 8128 kbps

Frame rate: 29 frames/second

Audio:

Bit rate: 128 kbps

Channels: 2 (stereo)

Audio sample rate: 44 kHz

You will NEVER be able to have 8000 kbps with any video that is only 320 X 240 :huh:

 

Maybe we should ask WHY 8000? and WHY WMV?

 

What is the Resolution (ie 720 X 480) and bit rate of your source?

(can't make it better than the source ;) )

 

As a last resort, you may have to do your edits and combining in VW then Export in any format that supports your Resolution & Bitrate, then use VCC for the final conversion...

My original file is a .MPEG:

 

Width: 352

Height: 480

Data rate: 9200 kbps

Total bitrate: 9456 kbps

Frame rate: 29 frames/second

Audio:

Bit rate: 256 kbps

Channels: 2 (stereo)

Audio sample rate: 48 kHz

 

As you know I can't remove the commercials using Roxio NXT with VCC or VW.

 

So, what I did is use VCC to make a WMV at 8000 bit rate and since I wanted the file size smaller I chose 320x240. When the file is WMV I can now edit commercials easily using VW.

I think VW is better for edits like you describe, however you use "Trim" in VCC and you can make multiple "cuts" there as well ^_^

 

Your source is a bit of an odd ball size with a much higher bit rate than the resolution can support :lol: ~ well obviously it can but the resolution hardly requires a bit rate that high :P

 

I convert things for a Cruz Tablet and merely use 640 X 480 @ 4000 kbps. For that screen size & resolution it works great. Also works out fine for my iPad 2.

 

If you haven't tried any at lower bit rates, make up the same short sample (go with details and motion to see) and try several different settings to see what works for you...

Using "Windows Media 8 Video High Qualitybased VBR for Broadband" template in VW gave a inferior quality compared to my original.

 

TIVO uses that strange size of 352 x 480. It actually looks fine on the 42 inch. The problem is I need to remove commercials. With the TIVO format it's not possible. Also getting the file size smaller is an issue. I have three 2TB hard drives and they are getting full of videos from TIVO.

 

I don't think I should go above 352x480. Any other VW template I should try?

You will have to do your own testing and see what you get.

 

I don't have any tivo files to test with.

 

Why do you keep messing with the font? It's so small I have trouble reading it a 125% DPI!
