Sorry if this is quite basic stuff Ive only just started trying to do video on my PC. I want to put a couple of short videos of wedding receptions onto DVD to keep (and share copies), and re-use the original camcorder tapes. Ive got U-Lead Video Studio, which seems to be quite popular on the forum (an old-ish version 6). I captured the DV through Firewire really easily, and have done a little bit of editing. I then rendered it and saved it as DVD MPEG2 (defaults to Variable Bit Rate, maximum 6.0 Mbps), but it wouldnt burn it onto disk how I wanted it. Ive got Sonic My DVD 4.5 and NeroVision for DVD authoring (both bundled free with disk drives). They both seem to have pros and cons. But when I tried using My DVD, it claimed the file had an illegal bit rate for DVDs and wouldnt do it. I did manage to get NeroVision to burn a DVD, but when I played it on my DVD recorder, the quality was very disappointing lots of pixelation / blocking, and shadowing etc., and not as good as the recording I got from plugging the camcorder straight into the DVD recorder. (Bizarrely, the DVD done with NeroVision wasnt too bad on a friends DVD player!?) Am I best to record the edited video as AVI and then render it in the DVD authoring software? And would I save it as AVI uncompressed or AVI DV Video Encoder type 1 or 2? With my DVD recorder, Im used to choosing an exact bit rate based on quality and file size, but Sonic My DVD and NeroVision only seem to have vague things like Good, Best, etc. Would I use VBR or CBR? How do I get a good quality DVD that will work on all players??? Any help very gratefully received!
