Slowing down footage

What is the best way to slow down a clip without it looking, of less quality? I try the speed/duration, but when put to DVD, it looks bad. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I would try shooting in a "frame" mode, I think that helps a bit over interlaced if you can. How much are you trying to slow down the footage? I did some tests for the remapping in CS3 and I thought they came out well but I also was only doing things for the web, not a DVD. Unless you are shooting with a high speed camera I think it is hard to expect a full quality slow motion.

The "pixel-motion" interpolation available in AE7+ is much better than Premiere's slow-mo, you just need to make sure it is enabled for both the comp and the layer, for optimum results. Obviously shooting a higher frame rate will get much better results, the data just isn't there if you don't, and the software is merely esitimating.

Thanks. I need some help on how exactly to do that in After Effects. I have version 7.

The effect is time remapping, and you need pixel motion selected as the method. There are tutorials out there, search for either time remapping or pixel motion.
