In Compressor 3.5 (OS 10.63) I would up revisiting a setting used successfully with HDV (interlace) material (see below), copied the setting and changed it to progressive....
"I did an edit with DVCpro HD material and (even allowing for NTSC) felt the resulting sd dvd was kind of soft. It was made with Apple Compressor (setting) Best Quality 90min (aka mpeg-2 6.2Mbps 2-pass)
I wound up copying that setting and turning the detail levels up to 10 for what seemed like a better result."
Now the copied/amended setting delivers massive purple/pink outlines in the resulting file, not the detail enhancement of days gone by, anyone ever see this?
