Windows Movie Maker's video capture function

  1. After getting my new DV camera I shot some video with it and I used Windows Movie Maker 2's video capture option to get the video onto my PC. I set the capture options to "other settings" and put it on what I thought was the highest quality "Video for local playback 2.1 Mbps", and then I uploaded the video. The problem is the 10 minute video file ended up being 128MB, and the quality of the video is very poor(small isn't bad but full screen looks terrible). What should I have put the quality of video on for it to look like what it does on the camera (uncompressed)? Or can Windows Movie Maker 2 not record uncompressed video like iMovie does?

    it may be that you used the wrong settings.. try encoding to .avi (original format) or 720 or 420 (cant remember)pixel resolution.. also check what format you're doing it as ie ntsc or pal etc..
