HUH??? Nero 6 VCD slideshows FUZZY, nero 5.5 SHARP

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Thomas G. Marshall, Oct 5, 2004.

  1. Ok.................................help.

    I recently purchased Nero 6, and now my VCD slideshows are producing fuzzy
    images on my Dell's teac DVD+RW (when burning a -R cd).

    The same files, when I had burned them with Nero 5.5 (on a cheap CD-R
    cyberdrive, that couldn't possibly matter, could it?) produced very sharp
    slideshows.

    I know that the technical horizontal resolution for VCD is clamped down to
    something like 352 or 704 (I am getting differing answers on the web). So
    Nero presumably has to do some image conversion.

    Did Nero 6 use a different set of [@#$% up my pictures] defaults?

    PS. I'm a software engineer, so you can save energy and not dumb down the
    answer tooooo awfully far. :)
