Im using toast, but when put in a dvd player, its all blocky.
what's the source of the dvd video?
divx? avi? camera....
a little more detail please...
It's an avi file, the movie 300, very clear on tv when hooked up via dvi output, but when burned, the quality is just crap.
edges looks pixalated etc
in short, you're going from a really lossy encode, then re-encoding it again...probably using the wrong settings.
you're probably compressing it to fit it on the DVD. is it a single or dual layer DVD?
im not sure, its Memorex, DVD+R 4.7GB 120min
that's a single layer DVD. if you have a newer computer, you may have a dual layer burner, just so you know, so you could use dual-layer DVDs for burning.
for reference, if you rip a DVD, it's usually like ~7 GB. So if you then turned around and go to burn that on a single-layer disc which has 4.7 GB of space, you have to compress the movie down a good bit. without knowing the size of your files, i can't say if that's what is going on, but it seems very likely.
why would he want to make a dual layer dvdr of a divx movie?
that's just a waste of a disc...
i missed that part
