    Default Help needed for conversion of photos in video

    I am currently using Pinnacle Studio 10 as my video editing software.

    However, I have noticed that the photos seem to be rather blur after converting them into MPEG 1. My photos resolution is 640 x 480.

    Did I miss out anything or is there any way that my photos can be as sharp as those shown on TV programs?

    Cheers

    A better alternative is to use shareware programs like... Memories To Go or Proshow Gold.

    Regardless what software you use, Mpeg 1 (VCD) is 352 X 288 PAL and Mpeg 2 (DVD) is 720 X 576 PAL therefore DVD will be better in term of quality.

    Thanks for all the help.

    I tried saving in MPEG2 (DVD) format and it works wonder (as compared to MPEG1).

    Cheers
