    Shakiness

      Why is my burned DVD video shaky when viewed on a TV, while the original tape is not?

            Windows 8 with all the updates.

            Premier Elements 10 with all the updates.

            GeForce 610M driver 331.82 (Latest)

            HP 23qd i7 3.1GHz 16GB memory

            This is my first production.   It's from a very old Sony videocam converted to DVD.

              Is the issue only seen in playback of the DVD-Video, or do you see it when playing back a Rendered Timeline?

               

              If only with the DVD-Video, my first question would be, what blank media are you using?

               

              One of the biggest issues with playback issues, for DVD-Video, is often blank media quality. Cheap blank media often will lead to hanging, jumping and erratic playback.

               

              Good luck,

                Is that a tape camera that you captured using a Firewire digitizing device, so you are editing "original" DV AVI files in PreElements?

                  Really!   Had no idea.  Label on DVD says:

                   

                  Hi Space DVD-R

                  120 min 4.7 GB

                    Does not jump nearly as much on Rendered Timeline as from DVD on television.

                      Sony videocam pre-Firewire.  Not sure about the rest of the question...when I look at the Properties of the source file created by PreElements from the tape-->DVD, I don't see much beside frames/sec etc.

                        Dave,

                         

                        I am unfamiliar with HiSpace blank media. I strongly recommend using Verbatim, Taiyo-Yuden or Falcon Pro blank media. I do not know of any others, that might be as good, or better.

                         

                        I shun Memorex, recent TDK, recent Ritek, and all "store brands" of blank media. They usually buy the cheapest blank media that day, then rebrand it, with their logo. Users have reported 5 different brands of blank media in one Memorex spindle - some work OK, but many do not - depends on where one is, on that spindle.

                         

                        Using those three brands, I have never had one DVD-Video returned, with about 2,000 discs delivered. Pretty good results, IMHO.

                         

                        Good luck,
