Thanks for the info, I d/loaded Santa demo and got a result, only now I have another question. The quality of the footage is poor, it looks good on slow moving parts, but any sudden movement results in a kind of zig-zag bleeding effect between objects. I know where this occured. Firstly I edited the footage in mgi videowave, which is what i want on dvd. Then I had to 'produce' the footage. This is where this poor quality occured. (at least I think so anyway) The choices at this stage for the format were: all, avi, mpeg, wmv, real. I chose mpeg. Then the choices for the produce template were: mpeg-1, mpeg-1 PAL, mpeg-2, mpeg-2 PAL, videocd, videocd PAL. I am in europe so pal is correct, but i believe that my choice of mpeg, then mpeg-2 pal, gave me a result, but seemingly not a high enough quality result. Producing a template takes my PC anything from 1 hour to 3 hours, so hopefully i can get some advice?
Once I resolve this and actually get a decent enough copy I will be purchasing DVD santa, it is the first time i got footage to DVD player, and thats worth £15.00 of my money.
