    My dear bnyce, a law in movies' encoding says: [bold]garbage in = garbage out[/bold]. You cannot make a 352x240/288 movie become a 720x480/576 movie gaining the missing quality. You can do vice versa, because you're reducing the final quality, but you can never increase it.
    What you can do is to put many 352x240/288 (VCD) movies into a DVD (e.g. with DVD Lab) purely for room purposes. You can fit many VCD movies on a DVD [since a VCD movie's size is 10 MB*length (in minutes, therefore 2h = 1200 MB) and a DVD size is 4500 MB]. You can fit about 450' (having a little loss due to the authoring) of VCD movie into a DVD.

    You could also encode a VCD movie to a DVD movie (like the lame Nero always does), but you wouldn't gain any quality. Why spending time (and money) without any gain?
