    Ok here we go i have just got an EVERIO mg 330 30gb hdd camcorder.
    before this i have been using a mini dv camcorder firewired to my pc using MGI video wave 5 to capture and author.
    Now i cannot use my MGI for the EVARIO as this captures in mpeg2 and is not compatable with my MGI..
    so they have supplied cyberlink powerdirector 5NE express
    used this no worries but a limited version you have to upgrade...
    so upgraded to cyberlink powerdirector 7 ultra..
    the latest and best one they do..
    now here is the question when i author a movie the quality of the finished movie is better with the limited 5 than with the new version 7...
    WHY.....
    Aldinho....

    Ive tidied up your thread title for clarity

    I can only surmise that the bundled software was optimised for Everio files.. or that the default encoding settings of ver 7 are not as good and you need to tweak them

    The other possibility is that ver 5 is " smart rendering" mpeg2 by default but you need to make ver 7 smart render by actively selecting that option

    yes you are right the bundled software was for the EVARIO , for sure,
    but to get the "rest of the options " you have to upgrade so you push the upgrade button which takes you to the number 7 version...
    have played with settings the only thing i cannot change is on the 5 version when you author it says codec DVD but on the 7 vesion it says codec mpeg2 ! which as i am aware is standard pal dvd quality.
    have run both programes side by side cutting to each to check the specs.
    they are as follows
    version 5
    codec dvd
    1440x1080
    vcdr25000
    acr384
    aspect4.3


    version 7
    codec mpeg 2
    1920x1080
    varabile bitrate 2000-25000
    vcdr20000
    acdr256
    aspect 4.3

    hope this helps.. the thing is am i looking for utopia when my wife says it all looks OK to her...
    then again is that to stop me saying look at this disk which one is best !!.

    You can change to variable bitrate and make minimum 4mbs and max 8 for SD .. 25mbs is for Hi def HDV mpeg2 1080i
    And you can use " 2 pass"
    but check to see if Power producer has "smart rendering" and enable it if so
    PS It is "EVERIO"
