Full disclosure: I'm a Vegas Pro and recently Premiere Pro editor, but we have a Final Cut Pro system here and the boss wants me to investigate why the DVD's it produces all have horrible jagged edges on the footage. Using the same 1080i@60 footage from Sony EX-1s, the SD DVD's we end up with from FCP just look plain bad. I don't know if it's an interlacing issue or what, but the DVD's we make in Vegas/DVD Architect and Premiere/Encore are both interlaced and they look fine. We're using the 90 minute best quality template, and on shorter programs have bumped up the average bitrate but that's clearly not the issue it's having. The problem is noticeable on every dvd player and computer we have in the office. Any suggestions on proper workflow for this type of footage. We're setting in and out points in a sequence then submitting to Compressor directly. Is there a more roundabout way that would yield better results? Thanks for any input.
