OK...I think I screwed my project up. I normally film in interlaced format, but the camera was on progressive. Noticed it too late. Got back to my desk, created a progressive project in PP CS4. Went to Encore, used dynamic link and created a DVD. When I play it on a CRT television, the horizontal lines and diagonal lines in my video are jumpy/jittery. Is there a way to fix this?
Would it fix it if I created a new interlaced project and copy/pasted the original timeline in the interlaced one? Is there something in encore I can do?
I'm at a lose and in a bit of a panic. I'm on a time crunch.
Not sure what is going on here but you could create progressive timeline and export to interlaced.
See how that works.
I just finished trying that. I exported out of PPCS4:
From my progressive timeline
1. Progressive MPEG-2 DVD
2. Progressive MPEG-2
3. Interlaced MPEG-2DVD
From my interlaced timeline with the sequence copy/pasted into it:
4. Interlaced MPEG-2 DVD
Burned them all in encore using seperate project and DVD's. They all look the same on the TV!
Maybe my TV sucks.
- make sure you're running 4.2. There was specifically a fix for rendering from progressive to interlaced.
- try turning off frame blending on the source footage (ie right-click on the clip(s) in the timeline to find that option)
