I am new to capturing video and burning it to DVD, but had some success with it yesterday. However, the only real issue I am having is the quality of the finished product is substantially less than that of the original tape in the camcorder. Any suggestions on improvement? I am capturing, editing and converting to MPEG with Studio 8 software, then going to VOB files with Sonic MYDVD and writing with Nero. I am using windows Xp, and have a Pioneer A-104 writer. Like I said, for the first crack at it, it turned out alright, just the video quality was pretty poor. Thanks in advance for help.
