When I encode the video from the timeline I will occasionally get a "flicker" when using a transition, like the "Push" effect, when I play back the DVD on a tv set. It's not noticeable when played on a computer monitor I use the presets in the Media Encoder, although I turn the quality up to 5. I have the RTX2 and use the Matrox Encoder but it uses the same interface as the Adobe encoder.
So what are some good settings for high quality, flicker free DVD's?
Andy, try using CBR instead of VBR as the encoding method.
I had the same problem with VBR.
I tried a CBR of 6 and 7 afterwards. Both values worked perfectly.
I am still trying to figure out the best settings using VBR. I will post my findings as soon as I have something new to share.
Another option is to export to AVI but you'll lose chapters markers in Encore.
