Looks normal to me.
Your source was a Canon XM2?? And the clips are 1280x720 50p???
My Canon XM2 was a standard definintion miniDV camera - 720x576 and 25i??
I don't see it being blurry. Playback looks fine.
My apologies its a canon XF100
I dont think blurry is the right word. the movement is not smooth. when its fullscreen maybe you will see it then?. I can see the difference when i put the source next to the exported version. Once I recorded a video with a pure white background and the focus was set to auto, it kind of had the same effect, the motion wasnt smooth.
Or I will go to get my eyes check
Like the others, I did not see the problem. The closest that I saw was in the second, with the person, who walks behind the speaker, but they were probably near the end of the DOF of the lens. Looks fine, but maybe I expected to see motion-blurring, or other issues?
50 progressive frames exported to 25 progressive frames actually look that bad when placed on DVD, and on the web as well. (jerky motion/blurry motion.)
For DVD, export 50 progressive frames to 25 *interlaced* frames. If you do that, the motion will look smooth as butter on the DVD. Use the PAL DV Widescreen preset, change the Quality to 5, use CBR instead of VBR.
I shoot all my stuff in 720p50, so i have done the tests regarding motion in exported media, iow 25 progressive frames vs 25 interlaced frames when creating DVD's.
Thanks for your advice, I tried the settings as you suggested. PAL DV ,25p lower,8mb CBR. The motion is still not smooth. WHen i play it back on my computer full screen you can see the blurry movement. Can you see it on the video or should I get my eyes checked
I did not suggest 25p. For DVD, use interlaced export, 25i. (PAL DV Widescreen High Quality)
For the web, export 25p or try 50p and use H.264 instead of MPEG2.
It was a typo, im so used to typing 25p. But i did use the preset PAL DVD Widescreen. Field order interlaced lower, and I also tried upper.
I uploaded the mpeg2 format on youtube so you can se the motion blur.
It was just the blurry movement that I was pointing out. the movement is not smooth, in the second video its easier to see as the movement is fast.
Im trying 25i as suggested by Averdahl
