I'm using the latest version of compressor (four). I am exporting a movie from my timeline of some 57 minutes to a master .mov file using 'current settings' from the timeline. My compressor settings are that I am creating a standard definition DVD with the default settings, apart from adding a very small amount of sharpness, as I would normally do.
when I play back the movie on my HD 1080p TV, the video looks interlaced. When I tried to re-encode using deinterlace option, the same problem was worse, showing what looked like interlaced lines on the horizontals. I didn't have this problem with previous versions of compressor when using exactly the same method.
Anyone else experiencing similar problems?
So try the steps with small test files that I suggested in my earlier post.
You don't have to use the preset. Use it as a starting point. Experiment with adjusting the quality controls and frame controls. When you find something you like, save it as a custom preset.
