I recently brought in some video from a handy cam (First two years of the twins growing up) into my computer…
I captured at 30 FPS.
At 640 x 480.
about 2 mins of video at those settings took up almost 2GB of data. No biggie, I was just seeing what a high resolution capture would do. I am basically looking for the best resolution to capture at while still achieving good quality…
…but when I used the SONIC DVD software, it compressed the video to around 185 megs when coding to the DVD!
So it looks like I am capturing at too high a resolution (obviously). But short of capturing over and over, at different resolutions, until I find the resolution that gives the best quality w/o OVERCAPTURING- I am basically at a loss. I cannot figure out which would be the best way to capture the video at the best qulity without capturing more than what I need. Does this make any sense?
Any advise would be nice.
