You need 3rd party software for that.

The favorite choice of Toaster users is Tsunami (a.k.a. TMPEGenc). The paid version is found here:

Don't overlook Eugene Kosarovich's excellent discussion of this matter in the current issue of NewTekPro Magazine.

Now I have the program, what settings should i use? I want it to be high quality enough to be played back full screen. Its going out to a scala system to be broadcast out over an internal TV network, I've tried to set it up but it always seems to be artifacty and liney and all together crappy looking. Does anyone have any suggested settings?

You're doing MPEG1, right? You should realize that MPEG1 mostly does look fairly crappy. It's fine for what it does, but at video res looks at very best like less than mediocre VHS. You can bump the quality (and resolution, esp!) up, but then you may run into playback problems with 'less than spectacular' performing computers.

I know some people that use Edit with DPS Velocity, and that uses Ligos, and they have excellent looking mpegs. Does anyone know if ligos is compatable with Toaster?

The Toaster 3 avi wrapper should allow a project to imported into any encoder that accepts avi files.

There is a LARGE difference between MPEG1, and MPEG2 which I think you are referring to in the latter cases. Tsunami, which we spoke about earlier, will also do an excellent job on MPEG2. I'm not sure if Scala can play MPEG2's though.

Nope, it was mpeg 1, they just looked alot better than tsunami. As for scala it will be able to play mpeg 2, but not the version my client is using, he will be updating shortly, but until then it must be mpeg 1.

PS what is toaster 3?

If your system will play them back, jack up the MPEG1 resolution to 720x480 and try that...
