Quality problems

Postby CBE » Sun Nov 12, 2006 6:32 am

Hello everyone!
I'm new in the AMV community, so far I had made only one AMV and I'm very proud of it. But well, back to the topic. I had problems with the quality of my AMV, it was bad. I ripped my scenes from my DVD and they were ok until I transformed them to .VOB into .MOV files. After that the quality went down.
Can anyone tell me why is that? It is because of the DVD, some security system? Maybe because of my ripping programm? (I used 0SEx 0.0110a1, btw). If is not anything I mentioned so what it could be?
Please answer my question, because I want to make another AMV and the scenes came with bad quality too.

I suspect it's because of the conversion from VOB to MOV where you lost the quality. I'll point you to this thread: http://www.animemusicvideos.org/phpBB/v ... hp?t=72938 which may help. Unfortunately, the links on the posted replies are down. :(

Do you think that instead of ripping the DVD we can, like, capturing the images while playing tha video ond the DVD player of the computer?
If there's not a way for it then I guess we better find a way to obtain a good quality from the transformation. Personally, I followed the tutorial of How to make an AMV with Mac, the examples show there were good quality. Maybe he guy who did that tutorial know a way.

chances are that you will run into the same quality issue (might be even worse) if you try to capture the footage instead of ripping it

Well you might be right. But I´m not sure that there isn't some way. Maybe what I meant was a capturing, what I meant to say it's a recording. Recording scenes with an special software (don't know if theres is any like that) something like recording programs form the TV or a thing like that.

Well, I did sent him and e-mail asking about that, my problem with the quality. The problem is that I sent him that e-mail like 1 month ago but he never responded. Since I used Mac to make my AMV I limited to iMovie so far and I only want to know if there is a way to make my AMV not look bad using DVD rips. There're a lot of AMV that are good quality but I don't if they're fansubs or anything else. I'm kind of desperate, I admit it. I'd be greatful of any help.
