Interlacing issues when burning DVD from captured MPEG2
on Jan 12, 2012 at 9:06:19 pm

I'm using a USB-Live2 Hauppauge converter. I'm capturing from a S-Video composite source. The capture works and looks fine. I have the configuration set to create a ".MPG" file to use in DVD Architect.

Using VLC and WMP the mpeg file plays correctly. When I burn the DVD in Architect (I also tried Nero Vision with the same results) then play the DVD on a television, the image is stuttering/jerking around motion (appears to be interlacing problems). I repeated these results on an Windows XP and 7 system.

I play the same DVD in a computer and play it back with VLC, it looks fine. Play it with WMP (mixed results for different versions). I'm assuming some programs are actively de-interlacing the footage and bypassing the issue. To test my theory I re-rendered the MPEG-2 progressive in Sony Vegas Pro , burned in architect. Voila! problem is gone (98% I can still see a little stutter).

My issue is that I don't want to have to re-render every mpeg2 I create. Is their a way to alter the USB-Live2 or WinTV software to capture progressive so I can go straight to burning without issues? Has anyone else had a problem like this? Is their a different codec I can use to capture?

Thanks in advance.

you are correct about programs De-interlacing on the fly.

Check your settings there is a change you are simply swapping fields, whatever your captured field order is, make sure that is the setting for your m2v encode.

I forgot to mention I'm using WinTV 7 to capture the video. I cannot find any options to change the field order. I was looking at options like Restream, but the I need to de-multiplex my mpeg2.

As I mentioned before I need to avoid re-rendering (speed is paramount). For testing purposes I used Sony Vegas to render out an Upper Field and Lower Field MPEG2. Both had the same problem. Only the Progressive MPEG2 mostly fixed it.
