HD to DVD/Compression issues
on Aug 18, 2010 at 5:06:34 pm


I've edited an 87 minute movie (shot in 1080p) in FCP 7. I've tried dozens of times to get the finished product onto a DVD (using DVDSP) but always end up with compression artifacting. The movie looks (generally) pretty good, but there is random artifacting here and there, and always in a few specific spots. The source footage for these spots looks fine, and there is no motion or crazy effects in any of them (just talking heads).

I usually just export directly to Compressor, then to DVDSP, but have also tried making Quicktime movies, then compressing. In all I've tried many suggestions, but the results are always the same.

Stranger still is the fact that no matter how I compress the movie, the artifacting is always there! The one exception is when I make a Quicktime movie using Current Settings; that looks great. Other than that, the artifacting is there...

I'd appreciate any and all tips, and I am happy to provide more detailed information if needed.

Thanks so much!
