    Hi,
    I have captured a video with resolution 352x576 (it's an analogue SVHS
    source).
    I would like to create a SVCD and a CVD.
    I want to add some maps, so they are a .GIF or .JPG image.

    Which resolution shoud I use for this image? I read that the best
    should be using 768x576 and then reduce it to 704x576. Is it true? Is
    it the same for CVD?

    Thank you for your help.

    I think you will find that SVCD is 480*576
    and VCD is 352*288, you do not get any choice.

    Your editing or disk making program should make either from your available
    source file.

    If the stills are to be part of your video then they will be converted to
    the same standard by your editing program. You cannot get better definition
    if they are to be shown on a normal TV.

    The normal visible TV picture from a dv source is 702*576 for PAL. I think
    the 768 figure relates to parts of the picture you cannot see.

    I am sure the experts will advise us.

  3. Both VCD and SVCD support still images of 704x576 (PAL). I can only assume
    from the reference to GIF and JPG formats and the fact that they were maps
    that the OP was referring to stills.
