Using Multiquence for certain video process

Post by obadilla »

I have two scenarios to use the Multiquence:

1) For short .mov videos (less than 5min), I need to do fade in from black screen at the beginning of the video and fade out to black screen at the end of the video. The final file must be easy to be burn in a DVD-R, and I want to keep the quality of the original file, with no quality degradation.

2) To process a .mpg file of 1 hour recorded from TV, I want to do the same fade in/out process described above but also I want to put away TV commercials. Again, the final file must be easy to be burn in a DVD-R, and I want to keep the quality of the original file, with no quality degradation.

Is Multiquence capable of working on that scenarios? Which will be the recommned hardware to let me work smoothly with that scenarios?

Multiquence does not support DVD burning, so you'd need to use other software to burn the edited videos to a DVD later.

The fading can be done easily enough in Multiquence, but maintaining quality may be difficult. Multiquence re-encodes the video when you save the project as a video file. That re-encoding reduces the quality slightly. I believe there are higher-end video editors that can preserve the quality of the original, so you may want to consider other software if high quality is important.

I have some more questions.

1) Are there adjustable quality settings when I save the project as a video file? Or the quality is just fixed?

2) Is it supposed that Multiquence will bring me better quality than a program like Windows Movie Maker appart of the other tools it offers?

There are many adjustable quality settings in Multiquence when you go to save the video. You can choose different file types, different encoders, different bitrates or quality values, etc. If file size is not an issue, then you can create very high quality videos with Multiquence (but they tend to be very large).

I haven't done any quality comparisons with Windows Movie Maker. I would guess that if you were working with WMA files, then Move Maker may give better quality. I'm not sure if Movie Maker supports many other file types.
