A Fix For Chopiness in DVD Video

Just recently, a question was raised to instructor John Lynn concerning a DVD made from video captured from a VHS tape by way of a Canopus device. The problem was that when the producer burned the captured material to DVD, their was considerable chopiness and pixel distortion in areas where their were fast movement. Here is the response to the question, which I think you'll find very useful if you have been experiencing the same issue.

"I've recently discovered that when you burn your DVD, Make sure you encode your mpg2 file using a progressive frame output. This might fix your problem "

Follow these steps:

Open your Quicktime movie into Apple Compressor.

Export it out of Apple Compressor as an mpg2 file but make sure choose (progressive frame) output.

Then import the mpg2 file into iDVD or DVD Studio Pro.
