CorelDRAW X5 :: Improve Quality Of Monochrome Bitmap Images?

Jan 27, 2012

Our customers have given us some black and white Monochrome Bitmap images at 400 ppi (see attached sample) and 600 ppi of some scanned black and white engineering drawings. Some of the small text on the drawings is not very legible because open areas are filled in with black. Some of the vertical and horizontal lines are ragged (digitized) on the edges. Is there any way that I can improve the visual quality of these Monochrome Bitmap images in Corel Draw (which I use) or Corel Paint (of which I'm not very knowledgeable, or adept)?

Softimage :: How To Improve Viewport Quality At Huge Scales

Oct 17, 2012

I find myself at odds with the lack of quality in the Softimage viewport when viewing a scene that has objects placed out in the 11,000 unit range. I am building a large city for a game and it must be to scale, but working from a distance is hard because of the constant flickering and depth issues. Select triangles from objects hundreds of units behind another start appearing in front. This creates a garbled mess of triangles and black backfaces. Judging the overall shape and composition from a distance is critical for a game city, but this cannot be done. I have tried different modes, but there is no real difference aside from a huge FPS drop. After using 3DS Max and Maya, I greatly admire Softimage, and this is the first real issue I have with it.

Photoshop :: How To Increase Size Of Line Drawing Image And Keep / Improve Quality

Apr 8, 2012

I have a few images that are essentially line drawings (B&W) that I want to make larger for presentation (i.e., click for larger size) on our new Website. The current size is not large enough.
If I increase pixel sizes, the quality is terrible. For example, see:

[URL]....on our 'test Website'.  [Please note Website is work-in-progress.]
Settings *jpg: Width - 270; Height - 138; Scale styles - Y; Constrain proportions - Y; Resample image - Bicubic
If I increase *jpg to Width - 450; Height - 230, I get UGLY.
When I Save for Web as *gif, I change Width - 450; Height - 230, it still appears fuzzy, although not as much.

Photoshop :: Create Reflection Of Shaky Light And Further Improve Quality Of Superimposing

Mar 16, 2012

I have 2 problems that I'm trying to solve.

1) on the attached, how do I produce the effect of the shaky light on the brick floor that can be seen on the 2 lights in background behind the swimming pool (tried shadow effects option)
2) the fire on the left hand side (in front) still looks too superimposed, even though I've tried some of the things I was advised to do on a similar post (adjust vibrant mid tones, use burn tool etc).

VideoStudio :: Transfer Tapes To Computer

Aug 31, 2012

How to extract camcorder dvd tape to an actual dvd without the actual camcorder? Possible to do myself? I have the actual DVD tapes from a camcorder. However, the camcorder was stolen a few months ago.

Is it still possible to convert the tapes to a DVD using my computer, but without a camcorder? Neither do I have the money to afford a new camcorder nor a professional service to do it for me.

VideoStudio :: Capture VHS Tapes To PC - Analog Pass Through

Oct 27, 2013

I'm trying to capture some VHS tapes to PC. I'm using my Sony camcorder DCR-TRV60E as analog-digital converter. This doesn't seem to work, although it's stated in the manual & all over internet that it should work. I'm not sure, but I think my A/V in is broken. I'm able to hear the audio from the connected analog device, but no video. Also the LCD screen on my camcorder is completly blue (as if it's getting no input). This is what I already tried:

1) VHS player > Camcorder A/V in + reviewed all camcorder settings (A/V -> DV out = on; ...)
2) portable DVD-player > camcorder (DVD has a 1-plug A/V out > 1 plug A/V in camcorder)

I'm thinking that my A/V input on the camcorder is broke. Any way to get confirmation? Or am I (still) missing a setting in the camcorder?

VideoStudio :: Transfer 8mm Tapes To Computer To Make DVDs?

Jun 21, 2012

I am trying to transfer 8mm tapes to my computer to make DVD's. I bought a "Startech S-Video / Composite to USB Video Capture Cable w/ TWAIN and Mac® Support" so that I could use any software w/it. I thought I could use Microsoft Movie Maker, but it doesn't work. So, I got VideoStudio Essentials X4 with the capture device. All my tapes are fine, and they play fine with I'm capturing...but when I go to view the video, it's jumpy. I only did a few minutes to see how it would do and that's where I hit a wall. I've emailed with Corel support for almost 2 months to find out that they don't support the software I got. As a last resort, he asked that I download the free version of VideoStudio Pro X4. I did, and still the same thing happens.

Photoshop :: Learning CDs, Or Tapes

Aug 31, 2004

I have Photoshop 6.0 on my computer, and just bought a 700+ pg. 6.0 book from ebay, which I hope to absorb.

A library of 12 VHS 6.0 tapes sold for more than I could see paying. Since I have 6.0, would having CDs of 7.0 be too confusing, or would it be smart? I hope to upgrade to whatever the latest version is if I can absorb this stuff!

Might anyone have some complete learning CDs that has been burned into their brains, for sale cheap?

VideoStudio :: Output Quality On The DVD

Apr 15, 2011

I use the VideoStudio Pro X4 to edit my videos.

This time I have some problems with the quality of my finished projects. I have tried to burn my project as both DVD and AVCHD. On DVD the quality was really poor with grainy picture.

The AVCHD disc was much better but there was lots of "strobe" in the movie. Especially where I have added transitions and text fields.

My raw video-files is HD video (MTS-files). I also use the proxy tools to make the editing go smoother. I think my computer should handle this without the Roxy, but it doesn't.

I use this settings for my project: Settings --> Project Properties:

Edit File Format: MPEG
PAL (25 fps)
MPEG files
24 bits, 720 x 576, 25 fps
Lower Field First
(DVD-PAL), 16:9

Create Disc --> AVCHD:
MPEG files
24 bits, 1920 x 1080, 25 fps
Lower Field First
(HDMV-PAL), 16:9
H.264 Video
Video data rate: Variable (Max. 16000 kbps)
LPCM Audio, 48000 Hz, Stereo

Create Disc --> DVD:

VideoStudio :: HD Quality Loss In X4?

Jul 11, 2011

I'm using X4. I purchased quite a basic Kodak Zi8 camera around a year ago, which makes decent quality HD movies. Every time when I copy files onto my PC (.mov files in Quicktime), the quality is amazing. It looks real and live. However, whenever I drag the files into Corel X4, the quality diminishes automatically. (Before even editing).

VideoStudio :: Ensuring Best Quality HD To SD?

Dec 16, 2013

I shoot either in 720p or 1080p for different projects, but for any one shoot I produce a blu ray and a standard DVD disc (pal). I'm simply looking for clarification on best practice for transfers to MPEG2 to minimize loss of picture quality. I understand some loss is inevitable going from HD to SD, but a best practice for everyone is worth knowing.

My questions are,

1/ After applying my colour grades and FX to my project, am I best rendering the clips firstly in the SAME format they were taken? Then afterwards, take the enhanced HD clip and convert to MPEG2. Or, does it not really matter - just apply the effects and render all in one go to MPEG2?

2/ Is it better to downgrade from 1080p rather than 720P?

3/ I use 2 pass encode, 100% quality in my settings and ensure no re-rendering takes place on burning. Any other rendering or burning settings you recommend?

4/ Finally, on a 50" TV, the results are fair-good for the burned SD DVD. However, even commercially made films from the 80's still look better. Do they use a higher bit rate or different compression method?

Premiere Pro :: Best Way To Transfer HDV Tapes To Computer

Aug 19, 2009

Just wanted to know the best way to transfer my HDV tapes to my computer. Should I use my canon hx-a1s or should I go out and buy a deck. I mean is there any differenence in quality?
Also what settings will give me the best results when transfering through adobe premiere cs4?
And, is it better to capture the video from adobe premiere or another application such as sony vegas, final cut, avid, etc. I still dont know if I will use adobe premiere or sony vegas to edit my footage, it depends whichever one plays my files in realtime, so I want to import in a way where I can have ease of use in any pro video editing program.

VideoStudio :: Quality Upscaling From 240 To 1080p?

Dec 30, 2012

I want to "remaster" my old travel movies (made with Ulead then) to VSX5 Bluray movies. I still have the old VSP file ; the photos taken with an old camera then had high enough resolution but my videos were at 240 lines then. I know that VSX5 upscales automatically to Bluray at rendering phase but what is the best way to enhance my videos to 1080 ; if done prior to rendering, will it yield a better quality movie (and if so, how do I do that ?) or do I have to leave it to VSX5 rendering phase as the only/best process . My 240 videos look ok at 240 but are currently "pixelly" when I view them on my current hdmi PC monitor at native 1080 ?

VideoStudio :: Low Quality Video Shares?

Dec 21, 2010

When creating video files, I'm noticing that the quality of video in the final file is much less than the original file.

The original files are wmv files. They are sharp, smooth, etc. 640X480, 1900kbps data rate, 2060 kpbs total bit rate, 30 frames/second frame rate.

When I try to create a video file with identical or greater specifications, I get low quality (fuzzy, choppy, etc.).

I've tried them all: custom, dvd mpg, Wmv, Blue Ray, etc.

The one option I can't try (because it's grayed out for some reason) is the "Same as First Video Clip" option. Not sure why I can't.

I've tried it on my Video Studio 11 plus and a trial version of video Studio X3 - same results.

VideoStudio :: Picture Quality For Portrait

Jul 30, 2011

I have the new VS x4. My experience with both x3 and x4 have been good. They produce an excellent DVD. In most cases , I use both video and pictures . My problem is with my pictures that are portrait format. When I play them on the TV, they are not sharp as with landscape pictures. Some are some what distorted. My thought is, they have to be compressed for the Tv screen, but not sure.

VideoStudio :: Poor Quality VOB Files

Aug 1, 2012

I created a video in Video Studio Pro 5. I published to a MPEG4 file to play back and check my results. The file opened with Quicktime and the video looked fine. So I went ahead and burned the video to a DVD using the Share feature, where it created a VOB file. When the VOB file opens in Windows Media Player, it loses resolution. The worst parts of the fuzzy video are the MPEG4 files that I imported into video studio. They are 1080 HD files so I thought they should look ok and, in fact, they look fine in Quicktime. But I also imported JPG's and they look fuzzy as well. How can I burn to a DVD without losing resolution?

VideoStudio :: HD Video - Output Quality

Apr 17, 2011

I have been trying Video Studio a few times in the past. The first version I ever tried must have been Ulead Video Studio 7 or 8. I always liked the process oriented GUI and the goodies that are made so easy compared to other video editing software. I remember version 8 and next to be very unstable though, which is why I kept working with other software like Pinnacle. Each time there was a new version though I tried it and I have seen stability improving with every version. I would like to work with Video Studio a lot, however I have serious problems with output quality.

Since a few years I am filming HD video, AVCHD standard (1080i50) with a Panasonic HDC-SD5 and recently HDC-SD900. The last one, a new camera, offers incredible detail and quality. Of course I want to see the same quality in my end product, the output of the video editing software. Here is where I have a big problem.

1. When I save output as AVCHD an use smart rendering there are problems with the transition between two clips. There are blocks all over the place. I have tested this with X2, X3 and X4. I remember in X2 there seemed to be some frames in the wrong order at the end of each clip. In X3 there were blocks. In X4, which I am testing now, sometimes output is good, sometimes there are blocks worse than I ever saw in X3.

2. When I save as AVCHD, Bluray, H.264, ... no matter what format in 1080i without smart rendering there is a big quality loss. It is really visible, especially on the pc screen. I have tried many settings: bluray 2-pass encoding at 30.000bps, AVCHD and H.264 at 18.000bps. It seems to be impossible to get good quality out.

No matter what I did, I cannot even approach the input quality with Video Studio. And let's face it, it all comes down to the output!

I have tried encoding with some other free tools such as Handbrake and Staxrip. Of course these are not video editors, but at least I could compare the output quality.

VideoStudio :: FLV Videos Are Suddenly Low Quality?

Aug 31, 2011

I recently upgraded both my computer (to an Intel i7 processor) and editing program from VideoStudio X3 to X4. Suddenly, the FLV videos I convert are appalling quality. Just two weeks ago, I was converting videos to FLV on X3 and the quality was fine. If I use any of the standard options for FLV conversion, the video is such bad quality that it's almost smeared. Even when I increase the bitrate to 1000 (the maximum), it's incredibly pixellated, but less smeary.

VideoStudio :: Video Quality Settings

Oct 20, 2012

I transferred some VHS tapes to DVD in VS 10+. They looked very good on my older 26" TV. We recently purchased a 42" flat screen HD and a Bluray DVD player that up converts DVD to near HD. When I played my DVDs that I converted from VHS the video quality is decreased. I burned the VHS tapes to DVD format, 29.97 rate, 7000 bitrate constant 720x480. What is the better format to transfer VHS to DVD?

VideoStudio :: X4 - Changed Bitrate And DVD Quality

Dec 6, 2011

I've just upgraded from VS 10 on an XP SP3 to VS X4 and Win7 Pro.

I take .TS videos from my cable box, convert it with VideoReDo to MPEG2, and edit/burn the resulting MPEG2 files to standard DVDs with VS. (Basically in VS, I use the cropping filter to black out the noise at the top of the screen, then add chapters, and burn without a menu.) Windows (File Properties, Details) always tells me that the TS and converted MPEG2 files have a variable bitrate max 15000kbps, and VS X4 says the same about the TS files, but it sees a MUCH lower max bitrate on the MPEG2s, often variable max 2000-4000kbps. (The shows recorded are standard def.)

On my old system, even though I always had the "Do not convert compliant MPEGs" box checked on the Create DVD Properties window, I guess it was always converting them anyway, because the green disk size indicator at the bottom would show that anything over 1 hour 20 minutes would need to be shrunk to fit on a single layer disc. But on my new system, even MPEGs that are 1 hour 50 minutes long are shown to only take up a third of a 4.7GB single layer disc (and only take about 15 minutes to render and burn vs. at least 45 minutes on my old system). Granted, my new system is a big step up from the old in terms of processing power and RAM, and if it was just the burn time that was different, I'd say, "Great." and leave it at that. But the DVDs I'm burning on the new system seem lower quality to me (lots of pixellation on pans/motion, etc.) than with VS10 on my old system, and I'm wondering if VS10 was somehow upconverting those low bitrate MPEGS to 8000kbps and X4 isn't.

If I uncheck the "Do not convert compliant MPEGs" box, the green disk size indicator looks a lot more like it did on my old system -- filling a disc with 1 hour 20 minutes of content. Do you think if I burned discs with the "compliant" box unchecked and let it "fill the DVD" so to speak, I would get better quality DVDs like I did in the old days?

The MPEGs are the same, so I can't figure out why VS10 never saw them as "compliant" but X4 now seems to -- to the detriment of my discs.

VideoStudio :: Loosing Quality Burning In V7?

Apr 14, 2011

I know I have an out dated version of VS, but all my videos are shot on a DV camera with 4.3 resolution.When I'm done editing I burn to a DVD using the VS program.

The quality of the DVD in not that good for some reason.I have checked all the properties and they seem to be right.But being a novice maybe the're not.If I save the file as an AVI then import it into another program (in this case Power Producer) to burn,I get a much better quality DVD.

PS. The reason Im sticking with VS 7 is that I can navigate around it fairly easily.Not saying Im confident, but enough to get by.May look into upgrading to a new version in the future with a new HD camera too.But for now VS 7 works fine for me.
