I currently use Video Studio V9 and have been creating very amateur DVD's of my kids photo's and Mini DV Video for a few years now.

Parent's / Grandparents etc also get copies of these.

I have always been disappointed with the quality of the stills and I have spent a bit of time reading through the posts on this forum (very useful) and currently doing some tests with scaling the images first.

I would just like a general opinion on if it is worth upgrading to Video Studio X2 and what kind of output format to use.

I have an upscaling DVD player and a 1098P 46" LCD.

I want the best possible quality from the DVD player.

The final question will be very subjective I know but it today's day and age would you create in 16:9 or 4:3 ?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
