I have only been fooling around with capturing my old 8mm analogue video for a week or so. I am having quality trouble once they are burnt to dvd
I have lots of hard drive space
2GHz Processor (Celeron)
Roxio6 , Nero7, Pinnacle8 (came with the ati card)
When I try to capture to mpeg I get jittery, or horizontal lines and many dropped frames.(whimpy processor?) So I have ended up capturing to avi and burning to dvd with one of the above software packages.
The quality is just not as good as hooking the old handycam right to the tv. Is this to be expected? What resolution should I be capturing the 8mm analogue at? Any other capture tweaks I might be missing?
