     I am finishing up my project and am working on getting DVDs burned and have run into a problem. 

     My computer came with Final Cut Pro and some of the Studio applications on it, but not DVD Pro.  I decided to build my menu in Adobe Encore, which I already have on my computer.  I exported my movie in QuickTime from Final Cut.  This video looks fine when played on my computer just through QuickTime or in iDVD, but when I import it into Encore, it shows up with interlacing/jagged lines when something moves fast horzontally across the screen or the camera pans.  This happens when I  play it in Encore or burn it to a DVD.  The interlacing doesn't show up too much, but my equipment wasn't horribly high quality so any more quality lost is quite annoying.  My sequence settings in Final Cut are:

          Frame Size: 640x498 (custom)

          Pixel Aspect Ratio: Square

          Field Dominance: None

          Editing Timebase: 29.97

          Quicktime Video Settings: Apple ProRes 422 (100%)

          Render in 8-bit YUV

          Process Maximum White as: White

          Motion Filtering Quality: Normal

Also, will I get higher quality video if I use Compressor with the project?  I have tried using it to fix a past problem but it had the interlacing issue as well. 


I don't know if anyone can answer these questions because they deal with Encore, but I figured I'd ask.  Thanks in advance!!!

Final Cut Pro 7, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    How are you viewing it.  A computer screen is progressive and will always have problems with fast movement with interlaced material.  Compressor has a great deinterlacing option in the frame controls.  Will add considerably to the time it takes, but well worth it.


    And why is your frame size 640x498.  that's just wrong.  And the resizing that's being done to make it fit the dvd standard may be part of the problem.

    Did you check your transcoding settings in Encore? Control click on the video clip and reset to original, then control click again and change the transcoding settings to progressive, this ought to fix it.
