I'm a newie to this so please be patient.
I have a load of old tapes with trains on (sad I know) but I'm trying to get them on the PC to edit them.
I bought a cheap Dazzle 150b to get them onto the PC. I have to use Studio 9 as my Prem El 2 does not see the dazzle.
It will only import as mpeg2, which I then edit into each clip and save it - again as an mpeg. I then create the DVD in Prem El 2.
I know that this isn't good (lots of Mpegging etc), but thought I could live with it.
But before converting 16 hours of video (!) I did a quick test DVD. To my horror, when played back on the DVD drive on the telly, the moving train is very juddery, as if it is flickering between two frames. Its horrible to watch. It does do this on the PC, but you can't see it when editing in either program, only when viewing back on Power DVD player - but I thought this was my lousy monitr, which doesn't have the refresh rate to cope with video !
What have I done wrong - is this a feature of all the mpegging ? I can use my Panny DVD recorder to digitse the video, but again, that creates an mpeg.
Is there a decent external hardware encoder out there ??
