VCD from Windows Moviemaker

  Barbiea 16:14 20 Dec 2004

I recently compiled some short movies from minidv tapes, and saved to a CD using Moviemaker. MY DVD player will read VCD format, but Moviemaker uses HImat (new format I believe) so I made copies of the movie files and burned a CD using Nero. Quality was mega disappointing. I used to get better copying 8mm analogue to VHS! Does anyone know how I get better quality movies on CD?

I've tried to the VCD bit my self before being put right by the good people of this forum. After great advice invested in a firewire card and an external DVD burner quality using these is stunning, Using a firewire you can download in AVI Pal format and save in the same once you have finished, this from my limited experience seems to produce the best results.
