Are you sure Premiere Elements creates DVDs lower field first? As far as I know, all MPEGs (including VOBs) are upper field first.
If you're having interlacing (jiggly) issues, it's often a mismatch between your original footage and your original project settings. What kind of camcorder is your original video coming from and which project setttings did you select when you set up your Premiere Elements project?
Hi Steve, Yes - the output VOB's are lower field first, this can be observed
as "fuzzy" picures when playing the resultant DVD on a DVD player - the
motion is slightly jerky as well making for a video that is rather hard to
watch for too long - like trying to read without glasses (if you need them).
The input files are 720x576 16:9 PAL - Upper field first.
I have verified that the output VOB's are lower field first, using other PC
based video players and viewing the "properties" of the file.
Also, after spending about 90 minutes on the phone to Adobe support, and
exhausting all possible variations of project settings with them - they
confirmed the VOB's are output as lower field first in PAL format and were
of the opinion that one could not output PAL Upper field first VOB's using
Premiere Elements 9.0/9.0.1.,
This is rather disappointing as from what I understand the Australian
standard is PAL Upper field first (720x576) 25fps. They suggested that I put
in a submission to the "Wish List", which I have done - no response yet.
I'm surprised to hear that, Dave -- but it could well be.
Sorry that I can't offer any further advice in this regard though.
