Since it only exports movies as .wmv (correct me of I'm wrong), if I
export at the hightest quality, when I go to author a DVD and it
converts to mpeg2/.vob, how much quality should I expect to lose?



Thanks,

I'm only using Windows Movie Maker 1.1, and even this version allows you to save
the movie to "other" format, with DV-NTSC AVI being on the list. So if you are
editing mini-DV video, I suggest you save to DV format and then compress this to
DVD video. I've found Ulead Movie Factor 3 to do a real decent conversion job,
especially if it is working with pre-made AVI files and you have the MPEG2
compression maxed out and set to variable. Just remember to keep your Ulead temp
directory on a NTFS formatted drive or you might run into the 4GB file size
limit of FAT32. Movie Factory can be demoed for free (full version.)
