Getting a clean render from 800x600 original
on Feb 25, 2011 at 3:16:20 pm

I am using an RGB2USB box to record the output of a computer's 800x600 screen to video clips using MPEG 4.2. I am bringing the resulting clips (which look really nice) into Final Cut Express, where I'm editing them and adding some titles.

Now, I need to render the edited clips to a format that can be burned to DVDs for training purposes. However the output looks nasty. Text is blurred and "doubled" looking. I'm sure this it's just a matter of choosing the right output format, but so far I haven't stumbled across one that looks OK.

Given what I am presently using, what's the best thing I can do to capture/edit/render/save good clean video for DVD?

Hi dane,
The issue here is the size.
DVDs only supports 720x480 (NTSC) or 720x576 (PAL).
You need to stick with one of them.

Thanks Rafael. Since the computer I'm capturing is 800x600, I assume my only recourse is to crop the screen size in the clips. Does that sound correct?

I imagine you are working with Squared pixels.
I guess that you will need to resize and crop.
