Make high quality VCD

by Sumi / March 19, 2004 2:58 PM PST

I am trying to make a cartoon movie and convert it to VCD. How can I achieve a high quality VCD. I have made the animation in Macromedia Flash and has exported it into AVI format without any compression as compressed ones are giving distorted images and I have imported it to Adobe Premiere. Please suggest me compression settings to use and also softwares to use to achieve my needs.

Hight quality as in dvd? It will never happen. The resolution of vcd is half that of best dvd quality is the most you can get. To make vcd it is necessary to convert avi to mpeg1 first and I don't think there is any way around it. Svcd would give you better quality than vcd and for that you need to convert avi to mpeg2 first.

700mb disk give about 1 hour vcd video whereas same disk only give about 40 minutes of svcd.

Here's a clue. You'll have to manually control the KEY FRAME interval. AKA "I" frames, you'll want to have all I frames. This is likely to be the best you can do.

Another hint? Try http://www.tmpgenc.com/

Some won't part with money, so they can't be helped. Also, I can't do your work for you, but will give hints how to get what you can from SVCD (forget VCD!)

You asked "please suggest me what codec can be used best and in what settings."

In my prior post I noted an tool and I frames. Please take no offense, but either you didn't read my post or you need to research MPEG encoding a bit more. Try what I suggested?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
