Yes, this is a deinterlacing problem. You will see that there are a couple of extensive threads in this forum on HDV -> DVD workflows. You won't have the problem if you go to BD. It is interesting that you don't have this problem when you author the DVD with DVD Studio Pro. Are you using HDV as the input to DVD Studio Pro and letting it encode to mpeg? Or or you using some other process to convert your HDV to mpeg before authoring with DVD Studio Pro?
Hi David..So should I transcode in the progressive mode and check the "deinterlace" box as well? I have not tried the BD yet . I was making sure I get my 5.1 surround and the movie properly without any problems on encore. I am more used to DVD SP. I use compressor to get my mpeg-2 files when I burn SD DVDs with DVD SP. (Although I think the quality with Encore looks better - other than the jagged edges and horizontal lines).
When transcoding to BD..do you see a big difference between H.264 and MPEG-2?
Also whats the best transcode mode - maximum quality or high quality?..or does it depend on the length? This my first BD title..so I am a bit nervous..:-))
As I indicated in your other thread, I don't think it will do any good to try and deinterlace with Encore. Besides, that would not be DVD compliant.
Definitely use H.264 for BD. It gives awsome results. I use 2 pass with max quality. The experts might think this is overkill.
