    Export to DVD - moving in video is "flipping"

    Lutzrahe

      Again finishing my project

       

      Export to DVD and now looking on TV (~40min long)

       

      but:

       

      if camera moves, the pictures is very bad, like flipping (moving very fast between 2 pictures)

      what is this?

      In the source, the move is clear, but not on the DVD

       

      what to do?

       

      Greetings

          Lutz,

           

          The MPEG-2 Encoding is not the ultimate with footage involving motion, either camera, or subject motion. However, it sounds like you could have Field Reversal issues going on, as this sounds like more than just the MPEG-2 CODEC (used for DVD's).

           

          Can you tell us the full specs. of your Source Footage, how you Imported/Captured it into PrE, plus what your Project Preset (at New Project) is?

           

          That info might tip off someone as to the likelihood of Field Reversal.

           

          Thanks for the info and good luck,

            the video source is: iphone 4 (full hd I think)

            Then copied via "windows live" to PC (no conversion)

            after that into "organizer" and into Premiere Elements (imported files and folders)

            New projekt is: PAL standart 48 khz

            in "preview" there is no "flipping"

              What sort of files are produced by the iPhone? I am guessing that the wrapper is either MOV, or MP4, but do not know for sure, and also do not know the CODEC used.

               

              You should be able to use either MediaInfo, or G-Spot to get the full specs. of one of those files, including the Field Order.

               

              Good luck,

                  OK, looks like you have H.264 in an AVC wrapper.

                   

                  You are also starting with HD material, and down-rezzing it to DVD with the MPEG-2 CODEC, so a quality loss will take place.

                   

                  What is your Project Preset for that material?

                   

                  The Audio, being AAC, could be an issue. Adobe programs have issues with AAC, though the files often work.

                   

                  If faced with AAC, and the knowledge that they can be problematic, I would rip the Audio stream, in a program, like Audacity, and then Save it as a PCM/WAV @ 48KHz 16-bit, Import that, and use it instead of teh muxed Audio stream.

                   

                  Good luck,
