Hello everyone, Im new to the forums here and did'nt get an oppertunity to search like I should have yet. I'm an avid Frapper for a raid guild and I was just realizing a huge loss of quality since I upgraded my old monitor to a 19" widescreen.
I now get the Widescreen black lines above and below my fraps when editing with Power Director. A freind of mine said that changing my FPS to NTSC would do the trick but it has'nt (changed both FPS in fraps and in PD).
My files are saved as avi before and after I use Virtual Dub for re-compression. I don't see a huge loss of quality from the compression itself and the raw files played on any player look as they did before.
So I guess my questions are;
1) Is there any way or setting to remove the black lines and recapture the quality I had once with my old monitor?
2) Is there another video editing program (maybe Pinnacle) that has a better conversion from fraps that will not cause that problem to occur in the first place?
3) Is there something I can do in my monitor settings to improve the quality of my frapped videos?
4) Can I use another program like Nero encoding to help my situation?
Thanks all for reviewing my long post..any help would be greatly appreciated.
