I'm relatively new to video editing and recently I successfully created an engagment DVD from a DV camcorder.

However I've just purchased Leadtek's Winfast USB II capture box so that I can convert my old tapes on an analogue camcorder to DVD.

I successfully created a DVD from one of these tapes however when I played the DVD the picture looks very pixelated and poor quality. I used Pinnacle Studio 8 (with recent patch) to capture and edit the video. I ensured all settings were set on highest possible quality but it seems I can only capture on a small size rather than quality at full screen.

Is this a software or hardware problem or both?

I have a PIV-1500, 768BM RAM, LG DVD, Geforce FX 5600XT 128MB Card.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank You
