I use the ATI Digital VCR capture utiltity to record video from composite video. My capture settings are Video: MPEG2 640x240 (max res.) NTSC 8.00 MB/second Audio: 48 KHz 16 Bit Stereo. Playback of the captured video is high quality. However, after using DVD lab, or any other DVD authoring software to create/burn a DVD, the resulting video is grainy compareed to the original captureed video. I'm thinking that the DVD authoring program is converting the orgignal captured video resolution from 640x240 to D1 which is 780x480 (?) and this is anagolous to blowing up a 35 mm photograph which tends to look grainy. I'm guessing the original capture needs to be D1 or 780x480 in order to retain the origianl quality. Am I right? Any suggestions?
