Well, most of the time when I try to render a video after editing (they are all avi files) only to watch on my computer, it comes out pixelly and slow and stuff, its just weird. Basically, I'm trying to find out the best rendering settings and file format so that I dont lose any quality, or barely any, so that when I'm done editing this video, I can put it on a dvd. So like, I would love to know the best rendering setting and file format for play back on my computer, but more importantly, the best rendering settings and file format (which im sure is mpeg2 right?) for playback on a dvd, after editing and everything. Please help, and thanks to everyone.
