I have an AVI movie file saved on my hardrive which I captured from my Canon MiniDV camcorder using NeroVision4. If I playback the recording on my PC using NeroShowtime or Windows Movie Maker, the quality is excellent. However, if I attempt to add the file to Nero's 'Storyboard' or Windows Movie Maker's 'TimeLine' for editing, the quality of the picture deteriorates. Grainy, jumpy, pixelated. I continued to burn the file to CD to see if the quality improved to it's original excellent state, but the result remains poor quality.
I have downloaded the latest XP Codec pack, defragged my hardrive but to no avail.
All help greatfully appreciated.
