Hi CK, good to see you back
Young Marc is quite right, for best quality output you have to set your bit rate to the highest possible level. If your video is under an hour long then this should be around 8,000Kbps. The only slight difference of opinion I have with young Marc is that I have found slightly better quality results from Variable (rather than constant) bit rates. To check your settings in MediaStudio check the following steps,
1. Open your project file
2. Press ALT-Enter to check the project settings
3. Select 'MPEG' for file format
4. Click the 'Edit' button
5. Click the 'Compression' tab
6. For Media Type select 'NTSC DVD'
7. Set Video Data Rate to Variable 8,000Kbps
8. Click OK
9. Click OK
10. Render your movie and open the output with your authoring tool.
Then all you have to do is make sure that the project settings in your Auhtoring Tool are also set to Variable 8,000kbps.
Hope this helps. Please let us know how you get on.
