It's taken me a while to find you, wondered it you can help. I've just built my system to start doing some home video editing. As I'm new to this I was wondering if I have the process right at all, because my end product looked very grainy on the TV. My camera is a Sony DVR (similar to http://products.sony.co.uk/productde...?id=11_61_5911 ). I output the video to my computer using the USB cable. My computer is an AMD XP3000, 1GB RAM, 250 SATA HDD, Radeon 9800XT Video card. I use Pinnacle 8se to get the video footage and do all the editing. When I finish (including transitions etc), I use Pinnacle to write to a DVD.
The problem is when I look at it on the TV, it looks blocky and not completely the 25 fps for PAL. I'm not sure where to even start to improve this or if this is as good as it gets.
Can you help me improve my DVD or point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance....
