Hi Rehaan
Thanks alot for the information.

My video quality is good after captured from camcorder.

The quality drops in the final rendered output (MPG in Ulead and AVI in Adobe). I use the default settings for PAL video and play these VCDs on the VCD players.

In Ulead Video studio I see some frames are being dropped when the movie is rendered to mpeg. Whereas in Adobe Premiere I don't see frames skipping but I *see horizontal stripes (alternating fields of the frame) in the final output(AVI file) when there is fast action in the movie. Stationary objects look ok.

Do you know a solution for this? Also can you send me some links you have for Digital video editing.

My equiptment is Panasonic DV-203 camcorder. I capture footage in to my PC through firewire card. The files are captured in to my external 80 GB HDD again through firewire as my internal HDD is only 40 GB. I intend to use more Adobe Premiere than Ulead for editing and burn VCDs using Nero.

Hi Satish,

As i have said, the fact that its VCD is a bit of a bummer in terms of resolution (percieved as quality when enlarged)...however it seems like u may have some quality issues as well....let see what we can do abt that.

Firstly, why dont you play around with the S-VCD format as opposed to the VCD 2.0 that you must be using.
SVCD has higher resolution than VCD (480x576 for PAL and 480x480 for NTSC)..almost twice as high as VCD. It can hold about 35-45mins of vid on high quality.
Google about making an SVCD and im sure you wil find a lot of info...

Secondly, before u convert/create the file to burn to cd, goto the options and see the bitrates and quality settings that u are using...and set them higher to your liking. Its also possible that in Ulead there is an option for *new project* that has the VCD standard...and in different levels of preset quality. Check it out.

Let me know how it goes.... ive never used // burned a SVCD...and not even consciously seen one... so am interested to know.

oh..also..when you grab video from your DVcam, what res dyu save it as?

cheers

One thing,
if you plan to play on a VCD player & TV then you can't do much about it. As most VCD players don't support SVCD.
if you play on computer only, then never use it in standard PAL mode. Avoid resizing the video from its original size (that hits the quality). and compress in DivX or wmv.

I don't burn VCDs.. but once I did convert a DVD quality print into VCD using Nero Vision Express 2. That was crystal clear on the TV.

I tried Ulead 8... works fine... i did record a movie from my TV Tuner and edited.. and saved it as DivX (video) and wmv (audio).... strange combination but worked Perfect.

Thanks Rehaan for the Ulead... this thing works for me.

I can't really say why the quality won't be good!
yesterday a friend of mine did the same using nero (I used Nero vision express 2) to spiderman 2 DVD. it was again very clear on the TV.

but xvid won't work on VCD player.
If you wish to keep it on the computer only then Xvid is good.. even DivX is good. (you can use Dr. DivX)

or.. you can try buying a video card with TV out... so that you play on the computer and see it on the TV!.. I like it this way!.. lol

BTW.. what are the specifications of the original mpeg file.
resolution
video/audio bit rate
and mpeg 1 or 2?
