Break up in picture when watching on DVD
on Dec 29, 2011 at 10:37:11 am

Hi All

Not sure if this has been posted before but in desperate need of help.

I filmed and edited a wedding using a PD170 and Final Cut Pro, my video appears fine on the computer and also appears fine on a standard def TV, however when I play it through a HDTV the video appears to break up and almost pixelate.

I have exported using 'Quicktime Movie' using current settings and have imported into DVD Studio. I have also used the quicktime file and ran it through compressor using Best Quality 90mins 16:9 and then imported into DVD studio same problem occurs.

Can anyone tell me if there is a way to rectify this?

Its really frustrating for me and my customer.

Thanks
Joe

If it looks fine on a Standard Definition TV, there is absolutely nothing you can do to improve the quality. Video was shot, edited and delivered in SD and the image is being "blown up" on a large screen TV. That will degrade the picture.

Hi Steve

Thank you for your response, that is what I feared. It looks ok on my HDTV, not perfect but watchable. Could there be an issue with the DVD player they have upscaling the video or is that wrong?

Cheers
Joe

There's nothing wrong: you're simply seeing the difference between SD & HD. Now you know the reason why they call it HIGH definition.
