Keep in mind the original video is all of 480 lines which you'll see 400 on most TVs and when people put such on a computer, ALL the raggedness will show up. Why? We usually run it full screen and that's a 4 times (or more) zoom in. Computer monitors are also adept at showing all the defects.

In short, you may be looking at the real picture and not a loss of quality from DV to PC.

have you looked at the video on a TV monitor yet? you may be surprised at how good it looks.

also, a trick i learned, I set my comp screen to higher screen area (more than 800 x 600) I find the video looks and plays a whole lot better. but I leave it in the "100%" size window.

Are you sure this is a problem on the computer end?

Have you seen the same output on a full size TV straight from the camera? Are you looking for something that looks like a commercial product? I haven't used movie maker, but I have captured from VHS via firewire. The computer did an excellent job of capturing the same quality that I saw on a TV using a high end digital editor.

better go for Unlead photo studio 6 or above.. its gives a good capture.. but make sure that ur orignal capture should be of DV quality.. it will take good amt of space for an hour of tape (approx 10 GB)

What is DV Studio?

Is there some Macintosh involved here?

The lack of detail in your post (OS, PC/Mac) makes this a non-starter.

Let me share a common working setup; PC with Firewire, Windows 2000/XP/2003 and the WinDV program for capture from http://windv.mourek.cz/
