Dang it...I just burned 3 DVDs, like 10 seconds of video each (5 seconds from GL2 @ 60i and 5 seconds from XL2 @30p)
DVD 1 Info:
Exported using Adobe Media Encoder, no audio, 4:3, Lower/Interlaced, burned with Encore
DVD 2 Info:
Exported using Adobe Media Encoder, no audio, 4:3, Progressive, Field Options on GL2 clip changed to "Always Deinterlace", burned with Encore
DVD 2 Info:
Exported using Adobe Media Encoder, no audio, 4:3, Progressive, BCC Deinterlace plugin applied to GL2 clip, burned with Encore
DVD1 looked the best, I don't get it!! *Sigh* Should I interlace my XL2 footage? I am just mad that I am getting some clear, and some jaggy video on the same DVD on the same TV.
Do I need to deinterlance the GL2 tape files, or Interlace the XL2 tape files prior to rendering?
This is probably not much help now, but in the future, shoot everything in 60i and leave it that way throughout.
Yeah, I shoot everything in 60i usually, but 30p is SO much more beautiful you know, so I shot all my footage with my XL2 in 30p, then later on the client wanted to add in some GL2 footage. Originally, I was told my footage would be the only footage for this particular DVD, otherwise I would have obviously shot in 60i had I know it would have to mix with other footage, hence the reason for this thread. I shoot in 60i pretty much all the time usually. Oh well.
Using the Adobe deinterlace method under field options will only use 1/2 the data (it use only one field). You need software than can inerpolate the missing field inoto a progresive frame. Boris might work that way.
