Any help out there before i start the archiving for real?
I bought a Prime Film 1800u to scan my photo slide collection.
It scans the photos at a resolution of 1800 x 1800 dpi.
These photos now reside on my hard drive. All 1350 of them.
Using Nero Vison 7 i burned a trial CD using the VCD format on HP cd-r 48x media.
I then took it downstairs and inserted it into my Toshiba DVD-Player to view on my 35"
Sony CRT TV.
It read the CD and the results were ‘ok’. Not ‘magnificent?’ like the projected 35mm slides
looked in a darkened room on a top of the line projector.
I could find nothing in the manual that stated that burning to VCD format automatically
used the highest possible viewing resolution. [which i read was 720x480??]
Is this also the highest resolution for SVCD and DVD, or for any media for that matter?
Also, will adding transition to a VCD force it to burn/display the photo at a lower resolution?
I guess the bottom line and what i am looking for is an answer similar to this.
“In order to get the highest quality slide show with the equipment/software in your possesion,
make your ‘slide show’ with Nero Vision 7 and burn them to a DVD.
This is as good as it gets.”
Thanks in advance
