Use a consumer NLE, like Magix or WMM.
You are using a professional tool like a dentist drill to make a hole in your wall. A regular drill will work better.
Thank you for the reply.
Sorry, But I have no idea what a "NLE" is?
Export using the uncompressed AVI format, or download a codec called Lagarith (use Google to find it). Lagarith will result in somewhat smaller, but still high quality files. Then use a program like VirtualDub along with the Xvid codec to compress to your destination format. There are lots of resources on the web about using VirtualDub and similar programs; the nice thing is that all of these tools I mentioned are free, so you can accomplish what you want with no additional expense.
Thank you for the advice.
I downloaded the codec. It is nice and small.
I will try it.
You can only achieve what you like (high resolution) if you forget about DVD. The specs do not allow your resolution. Xvid and similar codecs do not work well with PR. As Colin suggested you can use Lagarith, but again you have the resolution loss. It may be easier - and possibly allow the higher resolution you want - to use a DivX/Xvid/other consumer application to achieve what you want. DVD is 720x480 NTSC or 720x576 PAL. Thats it.
Your only solution is to either play from a PC or accept the lower resolution. In the latter case Lagarith does not bring you anything. I'm not even sure Lagarith accepts the high resolution in- and output.

Jeff.....can I? Please, can I post a number 2 type of response?!
You mean like, LMGTFY?
I suppose. But wouldn't it be more fun and less stress-inducing just to head back over to the 24p thread and argue with me about the relative quality of HCEncoder's output compared to the AME's output?
Thank you, the Lagarith codec work.
The coding took double the normal time (compared to DVD), and the output file size was about 6 Gig (compared to 120 meg for DVD), but after I used Auto Gordian Knot to convert it to XVID, it worked perfectly.
Thank you very much for the help.

Yeah, I guess so.
