Question

I put a picture to be my menu background that looks in great quality, then I record it and when I play it the menu looks in a bad quality. I tried JPG, TIFF, PNG, BMP and its still the same. Does anyone know how to make this in a good quality? The videos looks fine, but the menu is in a poor quality!! Please Help!!!

It should look as as good as a 720 x 480 pixel image (if NTSC) can look. The only thing that can make it look worse is if your source photo has an even lower resolution. I don't' have any suggestions for making it look better other than to view the DVD at its actual size rather than zoomed larger on a computer or TV screen.

Thanks. My image is a 720x480 in great quality but when I burn my dvd it turns horrible!! And I check everything I can imagine but still don't know what is happening

I don't know. Can you post a screen shot with the video displayed on your Mac at Actual Size. Something does sound very wrong with how Toast encoded your photo.

I see the difference and it may just be the result of MPEG 2 encoding. You said your original was 720 x 480 and that is not its dimensions. I wonder if placing a higher-resolution image in the menu and letting Toast do the rescaling will make a difference. At least, since this is 16:9 I wonder if placing an 838 x 480 image in the menu will help. The screen shots are .png files. Is the original a jpeg?

 

My presumption is that Toast creates a menu that should have the same quality as the images in a DVD slide show. You can do this comparison by creating a new Toast project and dragging the photo into the Toast window with DVD video selected as the format. Then choose Save as Disc Image. Select the resulting .toast file using the Image File setting in the Copy window (if you don't aren't familiar with the other ways of mounting Toast disc images) and view that result in DVD Player. How does the menu quality suffer compared with the slide show image?
