Question

Welcome. I made a movie from summer, idid it in FCE 4 in Apple Intermediate Codec HDV. I have also Toast 10 with blu ray plug it. I want to burn this HD movie on regular DVD and i have problem with codec. When i'm using MPEG 2 codec the movie is no clear, i mean it's jumping a little bit. It look like the problem with frames, i have PAL system in Poland but i recorded it in NTSC. But my player suppert PAL and NTSC, so it's no problem because SD material play good Pal nad NTSC. I tried to use MPEG4 AVC codec and quality is perfect, sounds play very good but i have a problem with ratio. When i'm using automatic setting in ratio final file is in 4:3 ratio, when i'm using 16:9 ratio it's the same, buty when i used 4:3 ratio my movie is 16:9!!!! That's i need, but in this case i have another problem. Movie has 16:9 ratio but it doesn't fill all screen on my TV.. Please help me...

Blu-Ray is neither PAL nor NTSC as those formats are standard definition. Your MPEG 2-encoded Blu-Ray DVD is not playing back smoothly and your MPEG4 AVC-encoded Blu-Ray DVD doesn't display the correct aspect ratio. Both are burned to a standard DVD.

 

I suggest going to kenstone.net or to the Final Cut Express forum at discussions.apple.com to learn what others suggest for exporting high definition video. It seems to me that Toast isn't reading the file correctly when you used the Apple Intermediate Codec and choosing the MPEG4 AVC codec. I'd try a different export setting from FCE but since I don't have experience with your formats I don't know what to recommend.

 

You also could try lowering the bit rate with the MPEG 2 encoding to see if that improves (or makes worse) the jumping play back, and try a different brand of media.
