MPEG 2, 720x480 9mbs, is that the best?



My Roxio 7 says the best video quality is mpeg 2, 720x480 9mbs. Is it? That is the best offered in Roxio 7, do I need another burn program?

If you are shooting in NTSC format then yep, if you are shooting in PAL then the best will be 729x576.

9MB datarate is actually the best the present DVD format supports, that said I've found that dopping to 7 is a better policy, picture quality isn;t duly affected and the discs seem to be more widely compatible.

this will all change when BLURAY fianlly arrives (which recent rumblings suggest is very soon)
Telling us where you are in the world and what your camcorder is will allow us to help you.

put your location in your profile so that it appears at left side like the rest of us - it is important when NTSC and PAL issues are involved
:hiya: Taking your advise and updating my profile, I was looking at my camera. Directly after my model number was NTSC.

Thanks, you really helped me out! :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:
yes the highest bit rate is 9mb but it does use up alot of space, if you do a bit rate check on most commerical dvd's many are around 4-5mb to fit the film and extras on, only superbit dvd's are the best using a higher bitrate but still sometimes not the full 9mb
