    I have to do a short demo to show a working prototype for my senior design capstone class. I am showing a way to automate application installations. I did a screen recording with CamStudio and I need to speed up some of the load screens.

    I dropped the .AVI files (CamStudio records files either into .FLV or .AVI format) and I did the editing I want, but when I export it, the text on the screens is barely legible. Before I put the files into final cut, they are very clear, but afterwards it is blurry. I have been doing either Quicktime Movies or Quicktime Conversion.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks

    is your sequence set to DV/NTSC? that's most likely a problem.

    set the sequence to uncompressed SD and then export again (if using QT conversion, use h.264 and make sure everything is on high)

    Use compressor

    and use the settings for 'DVD: Best Quality 90mins' and burn a DVD w/DVD studio pro, unless you need it to be in a web friendly format.
