help - from nice to junk: m2t to mpeg-2 via Sorenson or Procoder to DVD via DVDit

Hello,

Everything I've attempted in taking HDV to DVD has resulted in junk (I know there will be loss, but I get the feeling I could probably make a minor adjustment for major improvement...I just can't seem to discover the trick).

On a PC, starting with a .m2t file that looks immaculate, I compress to mpeg-2 using either Sorenson Squeeze or Procoder. I've used all kinds of setting combinations (CBR vs. VBR, Bottom vs. Top Field First, De-Interlacing vs. Not, etc. etc.).

At this point, the images in the resulting files are blurry and/or pixellated (even on shots with little to no movement).

Just to keep going, I use DVDit Pro to author DVDs (again, here I've tried various setting combinations such as CBR vs. VBR).

Does anyone have thoughts on where I may be going wrong, suggestions as to what settings you would use, or possibly even your specs should you use the same or similar workflow.

Thank you in advance to any that respond, and thank you to all who have posted before.

Chris

Any chance of post a before and after screen grab, just so we know what differences you are seeing?
