    I have used this programme on several occasions to turn my digital recordings onto DVD.

    I got married this month and converted the tape to DVD and it came out brilliantly. I kept all the auxillary files and other stuff on the hard drive as I intended to add to it when I had more time and more photo's to add in.

    Well last night I attempted this, but for some reason when I playback what I had already captured to the Hard Drive, its all terrible. Jerky, sound is all distorted and the picture is crap.

    What I want to know is why Studio 8 has done this?? I've played the media files seperatly outside of Studio 8 and they are the same.

    No problem I thought, I will just capture the footage again from my camcorder, but although when I am capturing the playback on my camcorder is perfect, it is terrible going onto the computer.

    What is the problem does anyone know, as I have used this programme countless times on this PC with no problems before......

    Could it be because to Put your Camera Footage on to DVD Studio 8/9 has to encode the Captured Files to Mpeg2/DVD first and the Mpeg2 encoder that Studio 8/9 uses is really Quite Bad and a Bad Encoder will produce Bad Quality even if it is working on good Quality Files...
    I would advise you to Capture your DV footage off your Camcorder to your Hard drive and then use a Real Mpeg encoder to convert the Files to Mpeg2/DVD format and then author those Files to DVD useing Studio 8 and if it tries to Again re-encode them (Some Programs will do this) then use a different DVD authoring Program....
    A Couple Good Quality Mpeg encoders are Tmpgenc and the Mainconcept Encoder....

    It could be that but previous efforts with the software have been great. Thanks for the advice though :)
