Poor Quality Screen Capture in With DVD

Hi,

I am producing a training DVD which has motion screenshots of some Windows accounting software.   I am using Camtasia Studio.  

The problem is that the quality degrades terribly when I burn it to DVD and play it on a computer.   Other DVD's seem to display fine on the computer.

Here as a screenshot of the AVI
http://www.contactshare.com/ee/QualityPlayedDirectFromAVI-800x600.JPG   This to me seems quite good but when I burn it to DVD and play it on the computer it's terrible.    Very fuzzy.    It doesn't seem too bad on a when played on a TV.   The TV does overscan whereas the computer doesn't.  

The original captures were recorded at 800 x 600 (I wanted big text).   I made them 720 x 576 when making them into AVI.    I tried Making it 800 x 600 and recorded it as 4:3 so the ratio would be the same but it made no difference.

Any ideas?   I using Nero Vision express.

Lee.

Hi, what burn speed, as  this is  a dvd the slower the burn the better results,
avi format is not a quality format for dvd maybe consider vcd video cd.
 Nero must convert the avi to mpeg for dvd compliable compression of dvd which is mpeg,
 degrading the quality.
Create the file in mpeg first  and then it will burn as mpeg and retain the quality.
That's all I can think of atm.
