    I thought Nero Vision used the MPEG4 codec, but all I can get is MPEG-2. I have a Plasma HDTV and would like to use the best codec possible for making DVDs of my photo images. If it is there, how do you select it?
    Thanks

    Use Recode and Nero Digital - that´s the Nero implementation of MPEG-4, I think.

    Does that mean I can't "CREATE" a movie in MPEG-4 from scratch?

    I don't see how that applies. I want to burn photo images to a DVD to play on my Plasma TV. I have the Ultra/Enhanced v7+ of Nero. I'm not looking for a "size" advantage as would be needed for an iPod, but a "quality" advantage for a HDTV showing.

    I burned a movie of the same images with Pinnacle Studio Plus and the quality seemed to be much better. I think it uses the MPEG-4 codec.

    From the Nero website:
    "Nero Digital™ is a complete audio/video codec solution, based on the MPEG-4 standard... It delivers DVD-quality at a compression rate far greater than MPEG-2...".
    It seems that you don´t get better quality with Nero Digital, only smaller file size. Anyway, you can create a DVD-Video (MPEG-2) slide show using Vision, then recode it to Nero Digital with Recode, and compare the quality.
    Also check the "high-definition" features in last Nero 7 version.
