i have a pc running xp. it has an amd 1.6 ghz with i gig ddr ram.
i have a dedicated 100 gig 7200 rpm hard drive. i am use adobe premiere pro to edit. now i am using a firewire card to transfer video to computer. when i edit and burn to a dvd the picture looks like crap! all the video looks real blocky.
i was thinking about getting a better video card, 9800 all in wonder, to get rid of the fire wire card and use s-video. i was also going to get a 10000rpm hard drive for the video.
do you think this will help?
do you have any recommendations?
Dropping firewire (digital) and using s-video (analog) is not recommended, unless of course your source is analog. If that's the case then you may need to look at what you are using to digitise the source material.
The 10,000 rpm drive may help, but I don't think that's the real problem either.
What is the source? Is it analog or digital? If you can provide a few more details, we might be able to offer more help.
