I have just upgraded my computer to amd64 3000 in order to edit camcorder film and transfer to dvd, however the quality of the download is far from satisfactory. My upgrade did not change the video card which is a g force 2 GTS. Any help or sujestions much apreciated. My video recorder makes a perfect copy from the tape.
I'm afraid I know very little about it, a friend of mine does it and thinks the DVDs he creates are really brilliant but personally I don't think the quality is there as having seen the original and his creation its definatly inferior in terms of quality. He uses a firewire card to get the video into his PC. Perhaps a dedicated capture card would be be better and hopefully someone else will know the answer havong tried it themselves.
Answers to some of your questions- picture fits full screen but appears out of focus, compared to original. Does not skip frames no other programes running 512 memory 80% free on HD do not understand "virtual memory" dont know resolution I use firewire to transfer I have watched via dvd and also straight from computer. Now looking for something to try.
to add to my other coments, when viewing via the normal small picture when viewing off the computer the image seems quite reasonable but going to full screen the picture seems out of focus and "shimmering"
