Default DV Quality

Hello all, noob here with some quality (video quality that is) questions.

I've come to realize that I must compress my video somewhere along the way. I choose not to convert it coming out of the Digital8 Sony camcorder, so I get at 13GIG DV-AVI file. Then I convert it to a mpeg-2 using TMPGEnc. Then I plan to author it with Nero VisionExpress 2 and finally burn it to DVD-R.

Is this the best route for the best quality video? I have a HD television so I want to keep the video interlaced and as quality as possible.

Since I'm new to this, I'd appreciate feedback on my process so far and some CC on where I could improve this.


Visca Barca!

I wouldn't use Nerovision if you can help it. From past experience I got lip sync problems as well as being extremely slow.

What is the ouput of the Mpeg2 from TMPGEnc.? Are you getting a video only m2v file or a combined audio/video mpeg?

I author using TMPGEnc DVD Author (different to TMPGEnc encoder) It is possible to import both a mpeg or combine a m2v/audio file together and author a DVD. It will then add menus and chapters if you wish and then burn away.

If the DVD is too big to fit on a DVD, I can then put the authored files through DVD Shrink.
