I am a bit confused on the Encore settings. Should I leave them as the default or should I tweak them?? The DVD tests that I have made seem to have a little bit of interlacing during playback in the Sony player that I am using via HDMI to the Sony TV.
When I check "project settings" in Encore it shows: Transcode Settings: Codec MPEG 2, 720x480 Frame Rate 29.97 (my project is 23.976fps)
Fields : Lower Field First
When I check "edit quality presets" It shows Export Settings - MPEG2 Blu-ray, 1280x720p 23.976
Output: 1280x720 23.976 De-interlaced
Source 1920 x 1080 23.98, Lower
Basic Video Settings:
Field Order None(progressive)
I guess It just seem like there is conflicing info with the Fields and with the Frame Rate.
Is this the way it is supposed to be or do I need to customize the settings?
Thank you in advance for being nice.
There are 2 sets of "edit quality" presets: DVD and Bluray. Be sure you are setting the ones for DVD. Also be sure you are lookng at the DVD Transcode Status columns in the Project Panel, and not the ones further to the right for Bluray.
For DVD, you will be using MPEG2-DVD. There are many issues in setting the rates manually.
You might also try settingh the DVD Transcode settings to Automatic.
Ok..just to clarify. Sorry for the long delay.
When I start encore and I get the "new project" window, I select DVD and
under the transcode settings, it shows Fields: Lower Field First.
Is this ok? I guess I would think it would be None or Progressive
