Problem viewing still images in DVD
on Aug 25, 2008 at 4:42:14 pm


I'm putting a quicktime from FCP on to a DVD, and having a problem where all of the still images quiver a little bit when on screen. I don't have this problem on the quicktime, only on DVD! Does anyone know why this would happen, and how it can be fixed?

It sounds like an interlacing issue. How are you encoding this? Through the DSP engine or via Compressor? For the most part, you want bottom field first for NTSC (unless it's progressive, obviously). I would recommend Compressor over the DSP engine, just because you have more options for the encode.

Also, keep in mind that interlacing issues will be exaggerated on an interlace TV/monitor versus a computer monitor, which is inherently progressive.

I guess I need more info about your material and workflow before I can fully diagnose anything.
