Photo JPEG to DVCPRO 50 looks awful!
on Aug 1, 2008 at 3:04:48 am

Using compressor to transcode 1024x768 photojpeg-encoded files (source is animation files, not camera-based, so progressive, no fields) to the DVCPRO 50 codec for editing in FCP.

In both the Encoder > "video setting" button where one chooses the codec as well as in the "Frame Controls" tab, I am setting options to "progressive."

But footage consistently comes out looks crappy, and, well, interlaced. Looks like obvious field combing artifacts through thin lines, everywhere.

Is there a way to get this codec to not compress to interlaced video? I thought it would be a great-looking option to use for lower overhead while editing, as photojpeg obviously bogs down and requires tons of rendeirng while editing in FCP. Do not have FCP 6 or I'd encode to PRoRes...
