Hey guys, I love the site - it's hard, though, to find the right thread, so I hope I'm not posting in the wrong place ... Let me ask my question: I'm trying to get my Mini-DV tapes of my family authored into DVDs. I would like to cut out some of the extraneous footage, and I want the quality to be the same as I see when I plug in the camera to my HD TV (why blow the money if the picture is crappy). After a lot of pain, I got NeroVision Express 2 to work - capture to mpeg, then author and burn. Here is what I have been doing. 1. Capturing with NeroVision Express (the last patch) using the DVD paramters (MPEG) 2. Editing clips with Nero-Vision - never had a problem there. Each clip was then exported to an mpeg movie - one movie for each chapter in the DVD. 3. Authoring with NeroVision 4. Burning with NeroVision Here are my issues 1. Image quality seems poor - every time I try to change the quality to high (from automatic) the sync between the video and audio fails - the audio tracks ahead of the video, and finishes first. So here is what I have tried. 1. Installing NeroVision 3 - now I can't capture. 2. Capturing uncompressed AVI files - the quality is better there (of course) but with ULead I get 4 Gb chunks, instead of a single 11Gb stream. 3. Trying to figure out how to use the huffyuv decoder while capturing. My questions: 1. How should I capture from the camcorder - with uncompressed (AVI) or high-quality MPEG (let's say with the huffyUV decoder). I would love it if the program would create new video capture files everytime there is a transition on the videotape. 2. I then need to edit the video - add transitions, effects, text, etc. What's the best way to do this without losing quality - and then export to another high-quality video format. 3. Authoring comes next. 4. Burning.
