picture problems on dvd

hello everbody, this is my first postand i'm going to start whith some problems :P. I've edited a dv movie in adobe premiere and on the computer i looks interlaced... as I suppose it should do. when i look at the movie from the video out on my tv i looks just fine no problems there. But when i export it whith adobes mpeg encoder and burn it on a dvd whith Sonics "dvdit" i doesn't look good on my tv it looks like interlaced on computer screen...

ps. i'm using adobe premier 6.5, my dvd player is a sony rdr hx 910 (I've tried other to, i've tried dvd discs of many brands.

perhaps the settings on the adobe mpeg encoder are not correct?

I've seen some not very flattering footage from DVDIT, any idea if its re-encoding the premier encode?

i've tried a lot of settings in premiers encoder, like upper field first, down field first, low bitrate etc... perhaps the probklem is in dvdit as DEvin said... but does anybody have any solution for this? it's really driving me mad... want to show my movie for poeple soon :P

How long is your movie? Try to keep the bit rate 5,000 and up if possible, however try not to go over 8,500. As for DVDIT, is it re-encoding i.e. when making the DVD is it just "preparing and then "burning"? Or do you at any time see a "rendering" message? Also have you tried progressive scan? I'll do a little more DVDIT checking and get back to you. As long as in Premier you encode NTSC MPEG-2 you should be fine, how is the audio? I think Premier renders 32k audio which will need to be changed, however I've never had an issue like this rendering out of Premier using the basic template. You may have better luck rendering AVI out of Premier and then let DVDIT do the MPEG-2 encode.

the movie is about 20 minutes long, no i can't see any rendering message at any time it says in the info of teh program it just creates shortcuts to the original files, my bitrate is 6000. i'm using PAL cause i'm living in europe, sweden. I'm going to try what you said about Avi... thansk so long :)

Which version of DVDIT are you using?
DVDit Pro v6 looks to be the most current.

I was wrong about your encode, being that you are in Europe, use the PAL options. Let me know how your AVI test went?

>>> i doesn't look good on my tv it looks like interlaced on computer screen<<<

that sounds like the fields are mis-matched... if your pal dv footage was shot upper field first, then you need to make sure that the mpeg2 file you encode for the dvd is also upper field first... always match it, and don't re-encode, as devin mentioned.

you might also try using another dv authoring app, in order to eliminate dvdit as the source of your problems.

Yes I think he may mean using Encore, DVD A-3 or somthing like that. I'll check out DVDIT 2.5 and get back to you, however I suspect it may just be a lower-end app type of thing.

yes, dvd authoring software, not video editing software, sorry about leaving that extra "d" off of there!

i was thinking perhaps try downloading the demo version of: http://www.mediachance.com/dvdlab/

matching the fields should not be trial and error... you need to know what you are shooting, and then match it... see if this helps:
http://www.creativecow.net/articles/...deinterlacing/
http://www.greatdv.com/video/fields.htm

did you somehow reverse the field dominance when rendering, within your video editing application, before it got exported to mpeg? take a look at the render settings.
