Are there any settings in VC that boost the quality?  I have a slideshow on Slideroll and it looks great, but when I encode it with VC it looks terrible.  It cuts off the left and right edges of the slides (minorly annoying) and turns the slides into extremely grainy slides with the colors hammered and some of the frames grossly overexposed.

Video will never look as good as the slideshow because the slideshow uses your photos directly and doesn't encode them into a lossy video format.  The slideshows are smaller in file size, use less computer resources for playback, and look better.

That said, I've never seen video artifacts like the ones you describe.  The encoder uses an MPEG format that should not alter the coloring.  It could be the media player you are using.  If you are using Windows Media Player, Quicktime or VLC, try an alternate.

I am having a similar issue.  The quality is horrible once I turn my slideshow into a video.  We were making slides to announce the arrival of our second child and you can't even see the words on the sign once you open it.  I paid to upgrade to pro because one of the features listed is "create larger videos" is there a way to do this that I am just not seeing?  So far everything I have tried makes the video look exactly the same as it did before paying for Pro!

Hello!

If you want to create a higher quality video, you'll first want to create a larger slideshow. The Video Creator can capture videos at the small 320x240, but as a Pro member you can capture large slideshows at 480p (604x480)

To create a larger slideshow, load your old slideshow in the Slideshow Creator, then click "Settings" and change the size to 640 x 480, then click "Publish" again to republish your slideshow at the larger size.

After you've published your slideshow at the larger size, you may now capture your new video at the much higher resolution.

Let me know if you have further questions!
