Issue With Burning To Dvd'd And Getting Jumpy Movements...

Question

Chaps

 

OK, so I take footage on a DV tape and when I import it, I normally import it as an MPEG rather than AVI, although these are the only two choices.

 

All is well when I create a DVD with menu's etc and when I preview on the screen it all seems fine, and there is nothing untoward.

 

After the disk has been created and burnt, when I play it, any footage that has the camera moving becomes jerky on the DVD. It's not unwatchable, but it's there nonetheless, and was not on the original footage, on the screen when viewed or when watched in preview having created the DVD.

 

So why would I get this jerky footage all the time? I've looked at settings and there are not many that can be changed and certainly nothing that would seem to indicate the cause of the problem.

 

I'm ok tech wise so feel free to ask any questions or probe and if I cannot answer, I shall say, as I'm very grateful for the collected masses opinions.

 

Cheers

 

Andy

Where are you watching the DVD, on your computer or a stand-alone player?

Are you burning to DVD a best quality? Do you see the video in the preview screen when its encoding or do you see a grey image with concentric circles?

How long in time is the video you are burning?

Have you tried first creating an image file and then burning that image file to the DVD?

Many of us prefer to capture to avi since that keeps the best quality. When capturing to mpeg, the video is compressed on the fly and there could be possible dropped frames. When you encode to the DVD the mpeg may have to be decoded and then encoded again with a loss of quality in each process.

On top of that, fast camera motion does sometimes result in jerky motion.

Thanks for this. Answers as follows:

 

Watching DVD in decent standalone player, when it happens

I think I'm burning at the best quality but not sure where the options are to change this within Roxio

In this instance I see the grey image with circles but in the past when this has happened, I have seen the preview (although that could have been on my previous Roxio ver 8)

The video is about 11 minutes long

Creating an image file - just trying that now

 

Good to know about AVI - will ensure I use that in the future. Cheers for the tip.

 

And there was no fast camera motion - basically any motion, no matter how slow, results in a jerky movement on the screen, but NOT in the preview while watching before burning...

Decent Player? Does the same thing happen if you play it on another Player or in your PC? – important because that points in completely different direction! (poor media)

 

If you don't know where the Quality settings are, then you are not burning in Best Quality! But with a short clip it is unlikely to make any difference. – they are at the bottom of the MyDVD interface toward the right.

 

Under Tools – Options – Render, set it to Software and see what it looks like then.
