I'll start this off with a statement that you guys surely see a lot here.... "I'm new to video editing". lol
I just bought a Canon DC-50 camcorder that records directly to mini-DVDs. When playing back directly on my big screen TV the pic quality is excellent. But, when I capture the video on my PC using an analog tuner/capture card and Nero and then burning it back to a DVD and playing that DVD on my big screen the picture is grainy, and jitters. When playing back on a smaller screen (i.e. my PC's monitor) the quality seems fine.
Is the problem that I'm taking a digital source (mini DVD) then capturing it via analog then putting it back in digital format? Any suggestions or questions welcome, thanks.
