Hi Chetna
You should change settings on VMD in such a way that what you see on your
screen is what you want on your video. For that you have to explore the
various options on VMD. And then when you make the video on VMD using its
in-built movie maker, make sure to use Tachyon (or Tachyon internal, but
be careful about the machine config; the latter uses lots of memory and
system may hang)for better resolution.
