I have used Pinnacle 7 to render some videos (separately to my earlier posting !) and while most of the time the quality is good sometimes, particularly if the video is shooting a scene with a dark area, the dark area doesn't have the natural shadow which I shot in the film but looks more blocky/pixelated - it looks like it hasn't rendered in sufficient detail/quality.
Does anyone know if this is because of the software configuration/hardware I have or a Pinnacle Studio 7 issue ?
I am using an Anthlon 2400+, with 512 MB ram, GeForce Ti4600 graphics card with 120 gb harddrive.
I know that the source video captured by the computer is fine.
Any help (or recommendations as to better video editting software) much appreciated
