Every time I tried to burn a DVD with a originally progressive video, it gets interlaced. Encore seems like a professional authoring software with many features. How can I get a professional and non-interlaced looking DVD?
I didn't write progressive, because I've read that DVD video is always interlaced. But how do feature films on DVD don't seem interlaced then? Is there a way in Encore CS5 to import a progressive film - preferrably through dynamic link - and burn the DVD without the video getting interlaced?
I don't think anyone can answer such a question without knowing the details of your source files and your Encore settings
So... exactly what files are you feeding Encore, and what are your exact Encore project settings?
For information about the files you are feeding Encore...
Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen shot works well to SHOW people what you are doing
It's more a general question! I didn't put more information, because I wanted to hear, if you can do it all. I am not currently sitting in front of this problem, but I did a few times and will probably soon.
The source clips I'll be working with will be 1080p or 720p H.264. I want to dynamicly link the Premiere Sequence with Encore, so the settings would also be AVCHD. But I don't have any option to disable interlacing and enable progressive scan for the whole DVD. I would want to burn it onto a DVD that can be played on most German players. And it would be awesome to have it progressive. That's it.
Anyway, thank you for your replies!
Jim is correct, dynamic link sometimes works, and other people have problems
Export from PPro as MPEG2-DVD (or widescreen DV AVI which is what I do from AVCHD) and give that file to Encore
Dynamic Link Problems
I looked at the problems you listed, John, but I didn't have any of them yet. My question really is only about the scanning. I want to have a progressive DVD. Until now all my DVDs have been interlaced and I hate that. I want my DVDs to look the same as those of Hollywood films (in regard to the scanning).
My question really only is: Where are the settings to teach Premiere that I want my DVD to be progressive? I have it set to PAL (because I'm German) and PAL is interlaced and I understand that. But why do feature films on DVD play in Germany progressive if they are in PAL?
So once again : What settings do I have to tweak to get a progressive film onto a DVD?
