Movie Quality

I captured my video in DV format, used WMM to edit it, then saved it as DV
quality. This was save as 16gig file.

When I burned it to DVD using WinAVI, all worked great. The only problem
with the quality is when the video is panning left to right, all verticle
lines, such as telephone poles, start to tile. It looks bad.

Was there something that I did wrong? Is this normal for DV? I converted
an 8HI film to DV. Is this the issue, since the orginal film was not shot in
DV, just transfered?

Thank you for all your help,
Rob

how does it play on a real TV?
sounds like just the interlacing, should be ok on a real TV
Computer monitors are progressive scan, normal Tv's are interlaced.

Thank you for the help,

I have a 50" widescreen and it is really noticable. I tried it on a regular
TV, thinking the widescreen tv may be stretching the video, causing the issue.

It is not too noticable on the computer screen, but the screen is only 17"
so it does not stick out so much.

You mentioned you are using WinAVI... it is one of the app that I found
re-registers a system DLL incorrectly...

To fix the DLL registry entry execute the following line on Start -> Run
dialog:

regsvr32 %windir%\system32\qdv.dll

It should result in "RegisterServer succeeded in qdv.dll" message.
Afterwards restart WMM and try saving again as a new DV AVI.

Thanks for the advice. I will give it a try.

I did notice that before I converted the video in WinAVI, there was no
tiling, only after the conversion.
Your should help.

I will let you know.
Thanks again :)

Well that did not work. The original AVI file looks great, but when I
transfer to DVD, all vertical lines, such as telephone poles, are still
"shakey" looking, and tile.

Must be WinAVI. I will try another program, and see if I get the same
results.

I used Nero to do the DVD transfer and the picture looks great. It must be
that WinAVI did not convert the file as good as Nero.

Thank you again for your help
