What is your source material from what camera?
If you shot interlaced, it is a bad idea to deinterlace. You'll be throwing away half your vertical resolution.
Export a short piece of your timeline to Encore, burn to DVD-RW and try on a settop box. Does it still show the same behaviour?
My camera source is miniDV Panasonic Model PV-GS320 shot on SP.
I guess I could edit just one routine and not do anything with it and just burn a copy.
Export as mpeg 2.
What is the best setting for export with this set up since it isn't HD (NTSC DV High Quality) is that what I should be using?
Use this bitrate calculator is find optimal settings for your encoding: Bitrate Calculator
With that material use MPEG2DVD and adjust the settings according to the outcome of the calculator and do not deinterlace.
Thanks a lot Harm, that is a great tool.
Thanks Harm, this test was good, thanks for your help. It looked clean, no step edging, must be just the nature of the beast. Not enough humph in the computer to make it look like final product.
