compression HDV to Mpeg2....then Artifact...
on Aug 23, 2008 at 2:14:11 pm

Hi, guys

I have an artifact problem after I compressed a HDV (1440x1080i, 50) video file to mpeg2 using Compressor.

We shoot with XDCAM EX and edited in FCP, then exported as uncompressed.

After we converted it to Mpeg2 file and burned on a dvd,

we found that there were serious artifact on the background, which has a pattern of wooden striped.

Please help me to find a better option for compressing the file without artifact on the background.

cheers,

The way to get the best quality encode, especially from a high compression codec like HDV is to export to Compressor from the FCP timeline. This will take longer and ties up FCP but it does do a better job. Also if you can use CBR at 6-6.5 Mbps, this will give you the best that compressor has to offer. You can try a short clip to test out the results before doing a really long encode. CBR doesn't need much time at all but it you have to go with VBR it is always best to do at least 10 minutes in order to give the VBR something to work with.
