Can't make high quality DVDs with Windows Live Movie maker.
Just got my Canon Vixia HF S200 camcorder and I'm trying out the Windows LM Maker with photos, instead of video.
The video I put together plays beautifully in the preview but, when playing on my 42" HDTV, looks terrible.
I've never used Windows Live Movie Maker, but it sounds to me like the resolution of the pictures is a lower one. In a smaller preview window they will look ok, but when you blow them up to be displayed on the 42" TV, they are going to be poor.
Make sure that you are taking pictures using the highest possible resolution and make sure you have your DVD software set to give you the highest resolution possible when it makes the DVD.
Which video editing software do you recommend for an ambitious beginner?
If I record at highest definition with my camcorder will it improve the quality of my standard def DVD?
thanks for the reply.
It depends on the max resolution of the camcorder.
If you were previously below the resolution of standard DVD (which it sounds like), it would help. If you were above that before, it won't make a difference.

I use Avidimux. It's powerful, relatively easy to use, cross-platform (works on Windows, Mac and Linux), free (as in speech) and free (as in beer).
Because my name is on the business, I work hard to make sure you get the best possible shopping experience. I look forward to hearing your comments .
