    Default Technical Help Please

    Forgive me if I chose the incorrect Topic Line for this question. I did not see a Tech Forum Line and thought General may be the best option.

    I have been asked by my daughters school to make a 2016-2017 School Year video for her class. It was a request and a chance for me to showcase my skills. I am not being paid or compensated for this at all. I am merely trying to get my Film, Photo's, and Product "out there." The film includes still photo's and video that I took. I finally finished the editing process and I am very pleased with the outcome. My MP4 file looks amazing. But when I convert it to an ISO file and burn it to a disc, it looks terrible. I am not sure why or where I am losing the quality of my video in this process.

    I used DVD Flick for the MP4 to ISO conversion. Then Roxio Creator for the Burning to DVD process.

    These are both Free Software Options. Since I am just beginning I am trying to use the most cost effective options I can at this point. But I am open to any and all suggestions at this point. I do not want to deliver a sub-par film. This is a great opportunity for many people to see the work I can do.

    Thank you in advance for any and all responses.

    I've not used either program, but I can give you some help.

    When I render a video project for burning to DVD there is a setting in my program to render accordingly. That likely means an ISO file and an audio file.

    You are rendering it first to an mp4, which is pretty compressed, and then converting it which compresses it again. This is why you are losing video quality. I don't know if free programs directly render to an ISO file.

    Another thing, does the mp4 version look really good in a small size on a laptop or on a widescreen TV? What resolution is your project in? That usually has to be set in the project properties when you start the project. Resolution is usually a selection in rendering as well. DVD resolution is 720x480.

    I have no clue how much experience you have so I am just covering the bases.
