I was a little dissappointed with the quality/resolution of my video when I burned it to DVD. I shot it on a Sony VX2100 and it looked great, but on DVD it didnt quite look that good. Any tips on compression or encoding in DVD Studio Pro to maintain image quality?
Also, would Deinterlacing video effect the quality/resolution at all? My project looked like it needed to be deinterlaced in the the simulator in DVDSP (it was showing those video lines, etc.) so I deinterlaced it. I was just wondering if that could have effected the resolution at all?
I end of up a good quality DVD if I shoot at 24p(advanced)in DV50 mode and then render out of Vegas at BEST MPEG-2 with VBR default setting for DVDarch. Then I burn the DVD at max bit rate of 9.8mb per sec. I found that moving the DVD burn bit rate to a lower level, such a 7mb a sec, would result in noticeable artifacts. By the way, the DV50 codec is such that lower 7mb DVD burn rate is unacceptable and will result in an error message.
