Don't use Match Sequence Setting in the export because it uses the wrong settings.
Use a mpeg2-dvd preset and tweek the settings a bit.
Make sure the fields are set to upper as the source is HDV.
Check the Use Max Render Quality.
See how that works out.
Thanks for all the great advice. My video looks good, but the text, Ariel bold - 78 pt bold and 68 pt regular, white text on top of black bar set at 50% opacity. The text is not crisp and angular as it should be. It looks great on my monitor and when rendered to flv, but when rendered mpeg-2 to dvd with the highest specs as instructed, it looks lousy. In fact, it looks the same as when I rendered it with the default settings to dvd. Any suggestions?
I just found this on the web, is this the best solution?
"Never use premiere for effects, titles, ect. Use After Effects then render it to a uncompressed animation clip - alpha settings selected. reimport to premier lay it down and gaze at beauty. Compression is bad, premier compresses everything it renders, the more you compress-layers, the more degredation and pixelation"
I posted the Creative Cow message on the After Effects forum and was told to ignore it. I have rendered in so many different ways and configurations to mpeg-2 and my titles that are 68 px and 78 px still look almost rounded instead of angular and crisp. Help....
Thanks so much,
