I have a Panasonic PV-GS500 which can record in 16:9 format. Anyone know what software will burn directly from my camera to a widescreen DVD?
I’ve got Roxio DVD Builder 7.0 that was bundled with my DVD burner. It has a feature called “Plug & Burn” which is what I’d like, except for two problems: 1. the MPEG quality isn’t that good (I think this might because it’s a “basic” version… maybe the higher tier product had better quality); 2. It doesn’t burn a wide-screen DVD: the image just seems squashed and tall.
The software that came with the camera will create a movie file that looks great, but I really just want something quick and dirty that’ll get an image at the quality taken by the camera onto a DVD as fast as possible without having to mess with getting an intermediate *.avi file.
Does anyone know what software out there will do this for me? Roxio has a $70 upgrade path for DVD builder, but I’d really like to know it can do what I’d like before shelling out the money, or if there’s another software package that’s better.
