    Export options to burn a proper dvd

    Hello

    I need some help with the export settings in Avid. I usually export in QT codec Animación. Hight Quality, which it is OK (more thah ok), but then I have to compress the video to burn it into a dvd. I use compressor to do it and then burn in DVD Studio Pro. ( I know that it is a big jump, from 100GB to 4GB or less)

    The thing is: if I export in progresive, the video is blured in clear areas and you can see in the letters of the titles horizontal stripes.

    If I use interlaced, the video will show lines in the part where camera moves.

    What can I do, is there any solution to get a proper DVD? How does the people do to get good dvds? Any formula, any advise, PLEASE !!!!

    Re: Export options to burn a proper dvd

    It depends on a few things:

    1.  Is your source interlace or progressive?  (Don't try to change it.)

    2.  Is your codec DV or someting else? (DV is lower field first, eveything else is upper field first.)

    3.  Are you looking at these results on a computer monitor or a TV?  (Progressive looks good on computers, interlaced looks good on TVs).

    Let us know what you've got, what your settings are and where you're looking at this stuff.

    Hi, and thanks for your response

    1. The sourced material is interlaced.

    2. I edited in HD, and then I transcoded it to DNxHD to be able to export it from Avid MC. As I said, I use QT Animation codec and get a .mov video. The QT video on Mac screen looks ok, and also on TV throught out HDMI conection. The probles is the dvd.

    3. I see it in on TV and the effects I described are on a TV basis. Both interlaced and progressive look bad, althought, you could say that each one has its lacks.

    Thanks for answering, I hope these indications help you to help me, if not, just tell me and I will try to be more specific.

    Best to export in qt reference and then use a programme like procoder3 to create a mpeg2 (standard dvd format) programme stream compatible with DVD

    What are your settings in Compressor?  Sound like that's where the problem is.

    Also your version of Media Composer, OSX and QT would be most helpful.
