Poor quality DVD using Compressor
on Aug 7, 2013 at 7:32:24 pm

Apologies if you have seen this before-I just can't see anything exactly like this.

I am producing a 90 min DVD for a client.
The sequence is HD- I have used the QuickTime converter to compress it to SD. I then bring it into compressor and use the highest quality settings I can in frame control- I know this increases the processing time. I have been playing about with this for days but I'm running out of time now.

The problem I have is that the graphics are very fuzzy around the edges when I play it on my tv. I know that the quality won't be as good as on a computer but it is not acceptable for the client. Some of the footage is not as sharp as I would like, but it is the graphics which are a concern. These are simple lower thirds with simple texts- just fades up, not complex animation.

I really need some suggestions about how I can make this DVD the highest quality I possibly can.
Any suggestions would be SO welcome.

Many thanks

I'm sorry to say, but Compressor was never known to be a great MPEG2 encoder.
If it's st8ll possible, buy Cinemacraft Encoder MP for FCP.
It will give you outstanding quality!
