I have finally created a VCD of my home movies taken on mini DV. I've used Nero burner and had to use CDRW as my DVD players don't play CDR. I also attached digital stills images taken with my digital camera as well as scanned images. What bothers me is the poor picture quality of the movies. The high res still images are outstanding however. I included the same video clip done on medium quality and high quality, but even the high quality image is poor (worse than VHS). My software is Windows Movie Maker (on Windows Me). Is the poor picture quality a function of the software I've used and if so what software is recommended. Alternatively could it be my firewire card (Texas Instruments)? My camcorder is the Canon MV300.
