Best way to increase Video compression for burning to DVD?

I'm trying to burn some episodes of Alias to DVD using Adobe Encore DVD. Currently the episodes are 624x352. When importing them to Encore it says I need them to be 720x480, 720x486 or 704x480. I'm wondering what the best method of converting these up is going to be? I have Adobe Premiere but it doesn't really seem to like converting them for some reason (ie: it never works) So I'm wondering what the best method would be for converting these so I could then burn them. Searching this forum suggested Virtual Dub for decreasing resolution. Should I just get that for increasing or is there something better? Maybe this can't even be done while maintaining image quality. Anyone?

Thanks.

How do you know he didn't tape them off the air? That falls under fair use.
Anyways go get TMPGEnc, that will do what you need.
www.dvdrhelp.com will have guides on how to use it.

Yeah I captured them with my capture card. So I guess people that use TIVO and save that are breaking forum rules? VCRs too. Chill out guys. If I was burning these off other DVDs don't you think they'd already be to the right size? Yeah exactly.

Thanks for the help though.

Every other thread I've seen asking the same question you have asked has been locked. Simply because your asking the same question people that download the episodes off of Kazaa ask. I dont care either way. www.vcdhelp.com has been mentioned twice and that's where you will find the info you need. You can either use it or don't.
