Interlace Issues


Rick Lavon

Question

Trying to encode NTSC output from Final Cut Pro to Toast 10 using custom encoding. Output DVD gets interlace artifacts. I have tried "automatic" "lower" and "progressive" settings without luck. Source video is uncompressed 8-bit 720x486 QT movie. 720x480 movies work fine. Can Toast work with any other file size?

Hi Rick -

 

 

720x486 is the Sony D1 standard and not necessarily compatible with home (in this case consumer DVD) video.

 

There will need to be some converting since you are 6 pixels over the NTSC standard and this maybe causing your artifacts where the 720x480 is coming out fine. Toast will not simply lop 3 pixels from the top and the bottom, but will re-encode to 720x480.

 

If you have the original 720x486 session, I'd recommend re-exporting at 720x480 since they seem to both have the same target format of DVD.
