video becomes bouncy/shakey in encore preview and DVD export! Help!

Hello, this is a serious problem, very unhappy client please help!

 

Here is a video I made detailing the problem. Please let me know if you need more information!

http://webvideoninja.com/uga/?seed=encore-cs6-issue

 

using a 2011 macbook pro, CS6 encore. did not use premiere for anything

took MPEG files direcly into CS6, spent hours creating a menu and linking

everything up, and ended up with a super blurry video that bounces up and down

before and after export to DVD.

 

the original video files are MPG files 750 X 576 size MPEG-2 Video AC3 Audio Channels 2.

They look great when played in quicktime, and get jumpy/bouncy/shakey immediately when imported to

encore. The quality improves a little bit after transcode (video is less blurry) but the

shaking and bouncy problem persists.

 

Thank you to anyone who can shed some light on this.

    Is that a single MPG file, or separate video and audio files?

     

    If a single MPG file, that means that Encore must transcode the file to separate the video and audio

     

    What is the source of the files?

    Yes, a sample clip can help when dealing with video related problems.

    That is an odd size... please use one of these programs to verify

     

    Report back with the codec details of your file, use the programs below... a screen

    Ok... actually PAL standard of 720x576 not the 750x576 you initially stated

     

    I don't do PAL (or Mac) but I see 2 potential problems

     

    1st is that you have one file, not separate audio and video, which means that Encore must "de-mux" one file into two to build a DVD... which adds an extra step that may cause problems

     

    2nd is that your file is top field first, while a DVD is "often/usually" lower field first... so check your settings to see if you can (or are?) force Encore to use the file as is, without re-transcoding to lower field first

     

    Other than those 2 things, I don't see any glaring problems

    Your biggest problem is trying to make pal into ntsc and trying to change the fields.

    If you keep everything the same settings you will have a good dvd.

    Converting pal to ntsc is something Encore does not do well.

    These days, most PAL DVD players can play NTSC DVDs.  Unless your clients have older players, you may be able to make a single NTSC DVD and keep everyone happy.

     

    Of course, that would mean starting with NTSC footage, too.

     

    If you are stuck going PAL>NTSC, then check out DVFilm Atlantis for Windows Pal to Ntsc and Ntsc to Pal Conversion of HD and SD files

     

    Better results will come from Dan Isaacs' dv2film AviSynth script, but it has a steep learning curve.

    I edited my initial reply -- you may find some useful information there.  To answer your last question, no.  AFAIK, very few NTSC players will play PAL DVDs.

    You must set PAL when you create the project.
