Glitches/Pixelation on DVD output
on May 23, 2005 at 6:02:01 pm

I recently burned a DVD of a 18 minute Band Demo project I cut in Final Cut Pro 4, exported as a Quicktime movie and then burned to DVD using Toast 6 Titanium and a Lacie external firewire d2 burner. When I play it back, I get occasional digital glitches/pixelations that aren't in the Quicktime movie.

I'm doing all this on a 1 Ghz G4 Powerbook.

Any idea what's happening/How to prevent this?

Any feedback is appreciated,

Your bitrate may be too high.

Try using 7mb/sec as your ceiling.

and convert your audio from .aiff to .ac3

what your describing usually happens when the bitrate
on the audio and video is maxed out.

Recordable media doesn't have the level of error
correction as replicated media, so the player cannot
keep up and glitches.

thats it in a nutshell.
