Convert avi to dvd or to divx? for good quality

I was looking through the guides because I wanted to convert some avi files to be burnt to dvd. But then i read:

Quote:
Unless you're capturing you'll have AVIs that exhibit a considerable quality loss. While DivX and XviD look pretty good on the PC screen, even using a TV-out to watch them on your TV isn't so great either (hence standalone player capable of playing DivX, or DivX player for consoles or even connecting a notebook to the PC input of a projector is a much smarter way to handle this). Most people watch DivX with a post-processing filter activated. This filter does a lot to make the movie look better by applying smart deblocking techniques.
Now im wondering if I should do it a different way. Im not exactly sure what is meant by the whole divx thing. The video files are 720x1280 in resolution. Will there be a large decrease in quality if i do avi to dvd?

If you think I should do the divx method, could you tell me some more about it? Maybe link a guide?

thank

Hi!

1) Did you capture the videos?

2) Would you please be good enough to load one of the .AVIs into GSpot and post a screen capture back here?

Where did you get the AVI?

If you encoded it yourself, then you should re-encode from the original source material.

If you had captured the video, you would know what it means. That, I guess, would explain the carefully obliterated filenames in the GSpot screengrab...

BTW - It's probably a good idea to answer a question that's posed to you by a moderator (neuron2")...

The problem is that as per Rule 6, there is to be no discussion of illegally obtained material. And when you obliterate the filenames in screenshots and don't know what certain terms mean, you seem indeed like you've illegally obtained the file.

So far you're the only one discussing illegaly obtained files. I don't know where you got that idea from.

Im sorry i blurred out the filenames in my screenshot, i didn't mean to offend anyone

Not really... neuron2 said you could just re-encode. I've seen him ask that before... usually right before the thread gets locked. Because then the person says they just downloaded it.

And Setarip plain out said you obviously hadn't captured it... meaning you downloaded it.
