    What is the best quality way to get a project out of MSP7 to a burn program.

    I have the option of creating a video avi file or a mpg file in MSP7 or
    I can frameserve using PluginPac however so far that has not worked.

    I use DVD MovieFactory as the burner and I am trying out TMPG DVD Author

    I want the best quality for a 75 min live band tape we did.

    I have XPpro
    512 RAM
    600 GB
    Pioneer A06

    The best option might hinge on how you recorded your video.

    Did you shoot with a Mini DV camcorder?

    Then you'll need to convert the DV .avi to a DVD-ready MPEG-2 file.

    If your DV .avi files look like this...

    NTSC drop frame (29.97 fps)
    Microsoft AVI files
    24 Bits, 720 x 480, 29.97 fps
    Field Order A
    DV Video Encoder -- type 1
    DV Audio -- NTSC, 48.000 kHz, 16 Bit, Stereo

    ....then you could use MPEG-2 conversion settings like this:

    NTSC drop frame (29.97 fps)
    MPEG files
    24 Bits, 720 x 480, 29.97 fps
    Field Order A
    (DVD-NTSC), 4:3
    Video data rate: Variable (Max. 8264 kbps)
    LPCM Audio, 48 KHz, Stereo

    If you shot with a DVD disc camcorder (records direct to DVD), then
    you could follow my tutorial on the Web page at the following link:

    Hope this helps,

    Can you not write the .avi files directly to a dvd?

    What is the authoring tool that comes with MSP7? Is at MovieFactory LE?

    To create a DVD that will play in a DVD player, you need to convert DV
    ..avi source video to MPEG-2 so that it will comply with disc

    ULEAD MediaStudio Pro 7.01 ships with a special "LE" version of ULEAD

    This "LE" version of Ulead DVD MovieFactory 2 supports all audio
