Best render qaulity for DVD's?


I have been saving all my projects in vegas as mpeg 2 and then saving the audio as AC3 as i have seen so many people advise on this site. The video qaulity is great but sometimes the audio gets a certain " echo " to it after being saved through DVDA 5 that i was advised to use.
I cant see where i am going wrong with audio to make it echo.

Also, after i save all my projects in DVDA 5 , burn them to DVD to share with my family.
They do lack that ultra pro picture that alot of people here have on their videos.

I am new to this and have only got a $300 digital camcorder from samsung, ( wife made me get a cheaper camcorder to make sure i like making movies, before spending the big bucks, she was not thrilled when she found out how much i spent on vegas pro lol.).

Well after lots of research, im really confused on how to go about all this.
Which pro cameras do i need, i dont fully understand yet all the multimedia talk.
So is there any good books i can buy on this subject?.

And advice can you experienced guys give me in reagds to all this?.

Sorry for such a newbie question, but i really want to learn.

Hi Matthew,

Video is much like anything else these days. It can get VERY expensive in a hurry. Right now, it seems like you are eager to learn, you have a GREAT editing program, and you are asking the right questions.

There are some good books out there to help, but honestly, there are a lot of resources out there in the internet for free also. It's going to be pretty tough to get solid results from a $300 camcorder, but it's probably a good place to start.

The next time you make a DVD, instead of making an AC3 file, try making a PCM file for your audio. That is a lossless version of the audio that should preserve whatever got recorded in the camera. It does take up more room on the DVD so if you're trying to stuff a long movie onto the DVD it may not all fit.

What settings are you using to make your AC3 and Mpeg2 files from Vegas?
