Thread: DVD quality

  1. #1

    Default DVD quality

    Hello,

    I'm using Corel VideoStudio X2 (yes, it's an old version, but it has enough options for me).
    Everything works fine, but since I have a flatscreen, my DVD's have a poor quality (and my DVD-player only connects to my TV with scart, not with HDMI)

    I know that's a very basic configuration.

    BUT, why is the quality of commercial DVD's (that I bought) much better (on my TV) than the DVD's I make myself

    As it uses the same hardware (flatscreen and DVD-player), I think I use the wrong settings in Corel Videostudio.
    (when editing, I use a combination of AVI-files (digital filmcamera) and MPG-files (digital photocamera).

    What settings do I need to have the same quality as commercial DVD's?

    Commercially produced DVDs start with very high-quality source footage and are encoded scene-by-scene using expensive encoding hardware.

    I don't know Corel and the settings there, but as you can gather from the above, you need your source footage to be as good as possible and a good encoder in your software. Still, you will not get the same quality with your own set-up.
    Generally, the higher bitrate you use, the better the quality, but the original bitrate determines the maximum quality you'll get on the video.
    Don't go over 8.5 Mbps. That will give you about 70 mins on the DVD.
    Use the good DVD media like Verbatim (not the Life series) or JVC Taiyo Yuden.
