Thread: DVDs being created but quality not good enough

    Default DVDs being created but quality not good enough

    Hi,
    I have a Sony HC19, firewire card and a choice of Sony Picture Package or Nero Reloaded for capture/edit/author/burn software. I have a DVD writer and have 'successfully' created some DVDs. The quality of the video isn't fantastic - not nearly as good as if I play the SonyHC19 directly throught the TV. What should I next be doing to ensure good quality DVD video? I've had a look around on the net and the advice seems conflicting.

    I'm planning to look into VHS capture next but I want to be sure that I can capture DV and create DVDs of good quality first or I will then get really confused!

    Thanks in advance for helping a newbie.

    1. Whatever you do, capture through Firewire not USB.
    2. Make sure your VBR is smth around 6,000 or even 8,000 for best quality. Also, if you're converting to MPEG-2 repeteadly, or from other formats (such as DivX), quality will degrade significantly.
