The video looks fine to me, its looking good, I assume you happy with the results.
If you wish to burn a dvd then you have to convert the DV-Avi to Mpeg2.
You will use either Custom or Make Movie Templates Manager to create a template.
The other option is to edit the project properties to use Mpeg2.
Then Share-Create Video File - Same as project properties.
Anyhow, well done.......
Thank you Trevor
Well I couldn't see how it would look good stretched out but it does. Before this I had tried to stretch them out but that was while I was working on them and I produced them using the mpg optimizer. They were long and lean and no man's dream. My first video I uploaded was in .avi format and it took forever and a day to get it up. I talked to another more experienced uploader and he suggesteted to go the .mpg route which, I have done. Some ended up being .mp4, why, I can't remember, and the rest, .mpg.
Eventually I want to put them on a DVD just to save room on my hard drive. I have 3 of them and C and E have about 3 Gb left between them.
I still haven't really figured out the movie template thing yet nor have I been able to figure out how to cut my clips up so just the piece I want is a stand alone piece in the time line and what I trimmed gets saved separately.
One off thread question. Does VS have a cache? The one time that I was able to suscessfully create a stand alone clip I've lost the parts that I had cut it out of and now I need them but, I can't find it in any of my files. I tried using VS Help but nothing came up (the tape was taped over).
