Thanks to your help, I've now Captured my 8mm Camcorder footage and edited it using Moviemaker2. I've burnt it to DVD using Ulead Movie Factory.
My question is why is the quality so poor? I don't expect a dvd to enhance the quality but I'd expect it to be at least as good as playing it directly to the TV via the camcorder. It looks particulalry bad on a plasma screen.
If its going to be that poor should I bother using the highest quality setting (mpeg2)? This took absolutely ages to create even on a high spec pc.
Should I just use the VCD setting for my 8mm footage?
Or is there a way I can improve on the quality?
