(NT) Best software for video enhancement

by ming_shi / May 26, 2005 1:55 PM PDT

I've got some movies that are really low in quality. When i watch them on the computer screen, I can only expand the video to half of the screen. Past that, it gets too blurry and pixelated. Just wondering if any of you out there can throw out some software titles that would enhance that quality.

right now you are assuming the problem lies with the software. We really don't know what you are doing and with what.

I use Sonic Mydvd, Ulead movie dvdfactory just to mention a couple.

Question.
by ahtoi / May 27, 2005 9:39 AM PDT

Did you make the movies or did someone gave it to you? This sounds to me that the movie was made at low resolution (definitely no dvd stuff).

for the professionals for that purpose but I don't know such for the home users. So why are you capturing the video in low resolution? What are you using? video work are very hardware intensive as you might have known.

I don't think that's what Kiddpeat mean.

Is the video from dvd, vcd, tape, digital camera, or internet download? But with just what info you've supplied I don't think anyone has an answer..sorry.

I can try to guess what you mean by "converter" but that's guessing.
