I am using an EX-1 shooting a high school football game from the top of the stands using HQ1080/60i.
I then imported clips with XD Transfer to an import folder. After that I imported to FCP 6.04 using Sequence Preset XDCAM EX 1080i60 VBR and Capture Preset HDV. I then sent to Compressor and used the DVD Best Quality 120 minutes setting for both the video and audio. The video looks great when looking at the clips but after I burned it to DVD it doesn't look that great there is a lot of screening and just not sharp even viewed on a HD TV. Are my settings wrong or is there something else I should be doing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the response!
Most if not all of the people that will be getting the DVDs of the games don't have Blu-ray. Would it be better to shoot at a lower res and use less compression? What would look the best considering the SD limitations? I don't mind not distributing in HD, but I need to get the quality a little better.
