    I've got a pretty decent Canon digital camcorder that for some reason,
    seems to lose a lot of the quality as home movies are imported into
    Windows Movie Maker on my XP machine. RAM and HDD space aren't an
    issue and I thought I'd come here to get some opinions. I import into
    Windows Movie Maker and burn with Sonic My DVD/Create DVD for lack of
    a better means of doing it. I haven't seen where I can actually burn
    the DVD through WMM and Sonic came on my Dell machine.

    So any thoughts? What do y'all use that you've had good results with?
    As a possible point of interest, I've connected my digital camcorder
    to my VCR and gotten better results on a VHS tape that I've been able
    to get burning DVDs of digital video - just don't seem right... ;-)

    only a suggestion but after you import into Movie Maker you should
    check that image size is 720 x 480 (ntsc) and frame rate is 30 frames
    per second.

    If it goes in as DV via firewire, it'll stay that way until you change
    it. Try exporting back to the camera from WMM down the firewire and
    comparing in and out on a tv. They will look exactly the same unless
    you've done something weird. So that part should be ok.

    Next download the demo of Nero and try making the DVD with that. It's
    the industry standard and very good.

    Somewhere in there will be a clue to your problem.

    Thinking of "Nero 7 Ultra Edition?"
