There are 2 good guides regarding AVI conversion in the stickies in Authoring & Editing. They are focussed on output to DVD but SVCD should be the same principle.

You should only use genuine Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden media. Many thanks to for their supply and great service.

Well actually it depends a lot on the original AVI file. 4 things matter most,

1. Width & height of video
2. bitrate of video
3. frame rate
4. size of AVI.

The width & height of SVCD/VCD will take up about 480x576 / 352x288, thus if your AVI is smaller than the above sizes, then stretching of the video happens, this will result in the blurry, boxy image.

Bitrate is the average number of bits that one second of video/audio data will take. Having more will make it more precise and accurate. If the bitrate is too small for the AVI to SVCD conversion, the above problem happens.

Frame rate will not affect much on picture quality but may cause audio / video sync problems after conversion.

Size of video is more or less tied to bitrate. IF your AVI is small in size, more or less you can tell that the bitrate is set to a small number.

Choppu/Jumpy Conversions is sometimes due to the fact that your AVI is damaged/missing chunks of data. This there is nothing much you can do about it.

Gspot can be downloaded to check your AVI file parameters while DIVXfix can be used to check if your AVI is damaged.

You can use imtoo mpeg encoder to convert your files to VCD formats. Then you can use your nero to burn them for your VCD.

cathypearlgreen, it sounds like you may have encoded your avi using the wrong template in tmpgenc plus. does the file play ok on the pc? what is the framerate of your file? what template did you use?
