Bearing in mind I am looking for the best output with some nice editing does the below sound like a plan: 1. DV Capture with Pinnacle Studio 8 2. Edit Movie With Pinnacle Stuido 8 (as DV) 3. Encode finished DV/AVI with TMPEG Enc Plus to MPEG 2.0 (To get a better encoding than Studio 8) 4. Burn to DVD/SVCD. Step 4 is the part I have not mastered yet? I dont have a DVD writer yet but hope to get on in the future so looking for the best picture quality which is SVCD currently. I would ideally like an authoring system which can create nice front ends. I am assuming that I cant author a SVCD/DVD with Pinnacle 8 because I have done the encoding with TMPEG? TMPEG DVD author does not do SVCD I beleive and although I could probably use Nero I would like a nice easy interface to create front ends to the disk. I believe there is a ULEAD product which does both DVDs/SVCDs, please could you confirm what this is and will it do the job. I would be interested in hearing people opinions, I must admit I like the idea of the complete package to do it all but I only have a trial version on Pinnacle at the moment so I cant testify to the quality of the MPEG 2 conversion. Anybody have any better suggestions.
