I am having trouble authoring a master DVD from my 70 minute 30frame ProRes movie file.
When I export from the timeline in FCP7, the file and subtitles look perfect. I then use compressor to encode to the mpeg2 media using the DVD: BEST QUALITY 90 MINUTES setting.
The result is that the image and motion of the movie becomes horribly interlaced (unwatchable) - and the subtitles look solid.
I then reused compressor - changing the output field to PROGRESSIVE (resize, deinterlace, rate conversion set to BETTER). The result is now the image looks perfect, but the subtitles look like shit - really flimsy and almost flicker when there is movement behind them to the point where its distracting.
Clearly I am no pro with this - anyone have any thoughts or solutions?
