I guess using current vernacular I would be considered a newbie. I'd like to give a brief description of my gear and then pose my question. Here goes; Canon XH A1s and shooting HD (PAL). Avid media composer 5 and that's about it.
I am fumbling my way through the AVID but so far have had what I consider reasonable results. Results from the camera viewed on TV (component out) the results are awesome. Viewing on my 24'' computer monitor in the AVID is also top quality. BUT... when I export/send to - it all falls apart. The results I get when I try to burn a DVD are poor I don't really know what format or whatever else to do/use to get good results. I would appreciate your comments and suggestions, mean time I'll continue happily fumbling.
