exporting video to dvd via Adobe CS5
on Feb 5, 2011 at 10:55:41 pm

I just purchased my first HD camera (Canon HFS20). I did some filming in HD 60i and want to take this all the way through the process of exporting this to dvd using adobe encore.
I tried selecting the avchd 1080i 60fps sequence setting and exporting to DVD using the dynamic link option, but in the end my footage came out looking very interlaced and bad.
I know enough about video editing to be dangerous but exporting to dvd I'm just familiar enough to know the differences between interlaced and progressive, but not enough to eliminate the issues i'm seeing on screen. I tried searching through the archives of this forum and there were similar posts but i still can't find the right resolution to resolve the issues.

hi,
I guess your problem is wrong field-dominance.

HD1080i60 is upper field first but SD NTSC is lower field first, so you need to tell the encoder to encode upper first to keep the lines in the right order.

so - I guess you need to create your own encoding-preset and encode it again.

cheers

so what sequence preset and export setting would you suggest? I can keep the sequence settings AVCHD 1080i 80, which already set the field dominance to upper first (see below). when i export i export in mpeg 2 and select match source attributes which produces the settings in the screen shot (also below). Does this sound like what you are asking? The match source attributes setting sets the field dominance to upper as well

hi,
for DVD you need to go 720x480@29.98 16:9 upper field first.

cheers

1. you are using VBR instead of CBR
2. don´t use PCM audio for you DVD, it´s THE reason in 90% of all cases why DVDs will not play smoothly. again, as mentioned before - use dolby digital audio@192kbit/s

cheers
