    AVID Codec/Line at lower edge of video

    Exporting DVCPRO50 to any file type with Use Avid Codec checked, always produces a nasty line at the bottom of the video. It does not appear when I do not use Avid codec. Why does this happen?

     

    Also, can you recommend a good software choice/workflow for compressing files and then DVD authoring?

     

     

    Thanks.

    'Use Avid codec' shifts dv resolutions by one line so that they match the upper/odd field dominance of every other codec.

    Thank you.

     

     Can I do anything to prevent the line appearing but still use Avid codec?

    Obviously if the video goes on a TV it is cut off, but other files on websites etc it is still there. I would rather have the ability to stop it happening rather than cropping it.

     

    Thanks

    AFAIK that's the whole point of the 'use avid codec' option. I f you don't want that effect then you should leave it unchecked.
