    Getting serious jaggies on Bluray. Help!

      Serious Jaggies as I'm panning the camera to track the groom walking behind a pole.

       

      People, I would very much like to hear from others, specifically around workflows for:

       

      Sony HVR-Z1 1080i PAL footage to Blu-Ray.

       

      I am using:

       

      Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5 64bit Windows 7

      Adobe Encore 5.1

       

      My workflow is to capture the footage (HDV) from the Sony Z1. Footage is edited in 1080p25 sequence. I am then exporting using the following settings and I'm getting jaggie city.

       

      Check out my tests so far below. Each result is exactly the same, note the image above. HELP!

       

      Test 01 / Footage: Sony HVR-Z1 1080i PAL / HDV capture Pro CS5.5 / Edited Sequence 1080 p25 / Export Format: MPEG2 Blu-ray (Match Source Attributes High Quality) / Result: As above (image)

       

      Test 02 / Footage: Sony HVR-Z1 1080i PAL / HDV capture Pro CS5.5 / Edited Sequence 1080 p25 / Export Format: MPEG2 Blu-ray (1440 x 1080i High Quality)

      Result: As above (image)

       

      Test 03 / Footage: Sony HVR-Z1 1080i PAL / HDV capture Pro CS5.5 / Interpret footage as Progessive / Edited Sequence 1080 p25 / Export Format:MPEG2 Blu-ray (Match Source Attributes High Quality)

      Result: As above (image)

       

      Test 04 / Footage: Sony HVR-Z1 1080i PAL / HDV capture Pro CS5.5 / Interpret footage as Progessive / Edited Sequence 1080 p25 / Export Format: MPEG2 Blu-ray (HDTV 1080i 25 High Quality)

      Result: As above (image)

       

      Test 05 / Footage: Sony HVR-Z1 1080i PAL / HDV capture Pro CS5.5 / Edited Sequence 1080 p25 / Export Format: H.264 Blu-ray (HDTV 1080i 25 High Quality)

      Result: As above (image)

       

      Test 06 / Footage: Sony HVR-Z1 1080i PAL / HDV capture Pro CS5.5 / Edited Sequence 1080 p25 / Export Format: MPEG2 Blu-ray (Custom) - PAL / 1440x1080 / fps Auto / Progressive / widescreen / Quality 5 / Profile Main / Level High

       

      I just want to produce a Blu-Ray disc without the jaggies from 1080i footage shot on a Sony HVR-Z1! This is insane!

       

      I would really like to hear from others who have managed to capture 1080i HDV from cameras such as the Sony Z1 and successfully exported and authored a Blu-Ray disc using Encore 5.1 without jaggie results!

       

      thank you thank you!
