movie output frustration
by jason zaloga on Jun 4, 2010 at 9:14:53 pm
I just loaded one test movie into iDVD to see if I am on the right track and then watched it on my tv. nope didn't work, doesn't look like on my monitor. WTF! Sound pops,seems to go to any channel it wants left or right. The picture quality has ghosting pixels around all the footage. Seems jagged around the footage. I tried all the info I was given. All the pictures look crappy. Type looks crappy. I'm crappy. Any video tuts or tuts on comp settings and for output for 16:9. I think I need to take a step back. Or a book.

preset=hdtv 1080 29.97 1920x1080 16:9
render settings output
video codec= animation
sound codec=apple lossless 44.100khz
pictures are png format
the sound mp3
type used within AE
the quicktime animation codec was made using idvd. i selected the movie and it started burning.
all I want is a 16:9 aspect ratio. I have no hd material. I tried to make another comp using ntsc dv widescreen and fit to comp from the hdtv 1080p comp and rendered using animation followed by idvd. the same result.
the current comp is set to hdtv 1080p. I thought becasue my tv is 1080p hd why not. wrong. i used ae like 12 years ago but used media 100 for compression. I don't know if this is a compression issue using a quicktime animation codec then to idvd. idvd didn't give me the option to select any compression.
There is no reason at all to work in HD if your final output is going to be a DVD. Do all of your work in an SD comp. The widescreen DV preset in AE works pretty well.
Try outputting as a Quicktime with the PNG codec (not a PNG sequence) and see how that works. You could then take it into the Adobe Media Encoder and encode it to MPEG-2 DVD so that you don't have to rely on iDVD to do the transcoding.
