What's Causing Jitter?

We edit on Final Cut. Whenever we need the finished program on a BluRay disc we use Toast. It generally works fine and looks good, but I just completed one that doesn't look good. Shots without movement look wonderful but whenever there's movement (camera or subject) there's terrible jitter. Is that a setting in Toast? If yes, how do I fix it? tx

It seems the footage has wrong field order on output.
It must be top field first.

How are you exporting out of Final Cut?

We export with QuickTime to get the program into an .mov file. We use the settings Edit to Tape Apple Intermediate Codec 60.
Then we drag the .mov file into Toast.

Sorry for the delay in responding.

[Thomas Hughes] "We use the settings Edit to Tape Apple Intermediate Codec 60."

I'm confused by this - I don't understand why or where in your workflow you use the Edit To Tape function. Apple Intermediate Codec is a poor choice.

[Thomas Hughes] "We export with QuickTime to get the program into an .mov file."

To get the best quality QuickTime Movie export out of Final Cut use the 'Current Settings', DO NOT select 'Recompress All Frames', and DO select 'Make Movie Self-Contained'. This will make an exact duplicate QuickTime file of your timeline using the same codec used in your sequence settings (what are your sequence settings?). Don't export 'Using Compressor' or 'Using QuickTime Conversion' - doing this will recompress your timeline sequence. I'm guessing that somewhere in your workflow you've done some recompressing and introduced a field order change.

is your media / seq upper filed 1st or lower.
there is a filter in FCP called de interlace. Try this
You can eliminate the frustration and time wasting of exporting and making costly discs by having a tv monitor (not a computer screen) attached to your edit so you will see field issues before you make a dvd or blu ray.

De-interlace filter throws away 1/2 of your image. Quality is degraded.
