Pinnacle Studio 9 poor quality

I’m using Pinnacle Studio 9 to make my DVD. It plays nice a clear in the preview but when I have burn’t my DVD the quality looks poor. It looks very bright and subsequently looses the detail abit like if you put the background White mode on your Camcorder. I’ve looked at my settings during the steps of when Studio 9 builds your DVD and everything is set to best quality etc.
Any ideas?

Try to adjust the bitrate and resolution.
What is the bitrate and resolution of the source?

Also, if you search this site, you will find many complaints about Pinnacle Studio 9. It can be very buggy. There are many free or inexpensive solutions that do a much better job, and have better encoders…
