Thanks so much for your help John. I have managed to generate my movie in an
..avi and a .wmv mode but still need to burn my DVD.
However before I do so I have another issue which has now arisen and with
which I hope somebody will be able to assist.
When viewing the movie especially in grassland scenes parts of the picture
occasionally appear to swim and blur a little. I have not had this problem
before and clearly I would prefer to address this problem if possible before
finalising my DVD.
I first published it in what appears to be the best possible resolution in
the AVI mode where a 20 minute video takes up around 4.2Gig. When I noticed
the bluring problem and I thought it may relate to the format and so I made
one in the .wmv format. However although the reolution on this format is
nowhere near that of the .avi format at only 1.2GB the picture quality did
not appear visible inferior although the picture is a little smaller. However
this format also still shows the blur/vibration in parts of certain of the
pictures. It is not throughout the movie but in certain particular scenes.
I also tried to publish it in HD format as the next highest resolution but
for some reason it would not complete the process.
I formally used Pinnacle which was excellent quality. In your opinion does
Windows Movie Maker match up to the same quality standard?
Your help will be appreciated.
