60P to DVD
on Oct 15, 2007 at 10:59:18 am

Does Compressor, or any MPEG-2 encoding software, have any trouble with 60P material in that 60P creates a completely new frame every 60th of a second rather than fields? I've had just one scene out of many that just will not look good in SD MPEG-2 and I wonder if it's some kind of encoder confusion or perhaps the material is confusing the deinterlacing chip in the DVD player. Of course, it could be just a bad combination of certain scene content and characteristics of the camera (HVX-200).

The scene is a pan of a chem lab setup with high contrast straight edges. One diagonal steel bar gets the ugliest, jaggy edge. I eventually had to slo-mo the shot to make it behave better. No other shot has this problem.

FCP 5.1.4, QT7.2, 720p60, Compressor 2, video format progressive, 60 min high quality setting.
