best settings for DVD motion with C100

The footage is Canon C100 at 60i.
On DVD, all motion is mushy and terrible.

It's fine after deinterlacing.

Is there a better solution for getting
motion to look good with this camera
when going to DVD?

I'm not able to visualize what "mushy and terrible" looks like. Perhaps this camera shot progressive segmented frame video... i.e. it shoots a progressive frame, but records it as two fields: hence the 59.94i rate.

Try two things: in the FCP browser, change an unused clip's field order to None, and put it into a timeline with a field order of None. Waste 50-cents, burn a rest DVD, and look at it on a real DVD player and not your computer. See what happens.

Dave,
Thanks for the idea.

I think we already know this works - i can solve the
problem of moving objects appearing to have a tail
that follows them by deinterlacing all video.

My question was are there other things I can do
in addition to deinterlacing that make the motion
appear smooth and the video highest possible resolution?

(For instance different FCP export settings and Compressor
settings)

[david mayer]: "My question was are there other things I can do in addition to deinterlacing that make the motion appear smooth and the video highest possible resolution?"

That's the intent behind the technique described above. If it's progressive video treated like it's interlaced, this could happen. By running a test by turning an unsed clip to progressive, putting it in as progressive timeline & making a test DVD, you find out.

Or you could also recall if 1) your camera is capable of shooting progressive-scan and 2) if you shot this video using that setting.
