End Credits - creating problems in DVD Player
on Jul 31, 2013 at 8:38:11 pm

I edited my 20 minutes short film in FCP. Subtitles are also created in FCP. For end credits, I used Adobe After Effects, exported as a mov file and imported that file into FCP. I designed my DVD in DVD SP. I tested the DVD before burning and everything looked good including the end credits. Then I burned the DVD and tested in DVD player. That's when I came across this problem.

Subtitles came out fine but the end credits that I created from AE is slightly blurry. I don't where the problem is. I am assuming it might be the frame rate.

My film in FCP is 24 fps. So when I exported the end credits file from AE, I used the same frame rate 24 fps. I used the Compressor 'Create DVD' template. This automatically set the frame rate to 23.98 (Inspector - Video Format - Frame Rate). I tried to change to 24 but the field is grayed out.

When I imported the compressed ac3 and m2v files to DVDSP, I noticed that MPEG-2 Video frame rate is displaying as 29.97 fps. As I did not change the frame rate myself in Compressor/DVDSP, I did not give that much importance.

I burned the DVD and tested in MAC which played fine. The problem occurred when I played in DVD player. Where is the problem and how do I fix this?

PS: 1) The end credits I have is not a scrolling credit. Static credits fading in and fading out.
2) I used the font 'Trajan Pro' in AE to create end credits. Can the blurry be due to this font type?

Thanks.

[Sridhar Kumar] "My film in FCP is 24 fps."
Film cameras makes real 24fps.
Video cameras make 23,98 fps which is normally called p24.
24 fps is not a standard in video and so, DVDs are 23,98 (or 29,97).
You must make your AE credits at 23,98fps.

I exported the credits in 23.976 frame rate from AE. Still it creates the same problem when I play it in the DVD player.

I also tried exporting in 29.97 frame rate. Same problem.

Even in small indie movies, I have seen clean credits without any blurry. Any one any suggestions?
