I don't know if you've looked at it, but at what point does it not look like video on your system? Before or after the down convert to SD? That is, does the prores have the film look? What about the AVCHD from the camera?

@Les
Actually, it looks great on my computer and on BluRay.

The problem comes on the DVD. The downconverted SD files look good also.

Its really just the DVD. And in all actuality, that looks good too. Its just the motion.

The only possible suspect is in the DVD authoring software settings. Some such programs automatically deinterlace the video by default even if you're going from 480i to 480i - and then fail to re-interlace the video correctly. And if it does, the resulting video will be more like 30p PSF than true 60i.

Re: Yet another HD to DVD Thread!!! - Not what you think.

OK ... so after a ton of research I think I have figured this situation out.

Its pretty simple ... you need to record back to an intermediary. This is an example workflow, let me know know what you think:

#1 - Edit Project in Native Resolution (HDV, ProRes, etc.)
#2 - Export to ProRes for BluRay
#3 - Play to tape or other intermediary as SD file. Let Matrox, Kona, etc to downcovert and scale the file.
#4 - Recapture / Import footage back into edit station.
#5 - Export to Compressor for DVD encoding
#6 - Final DVD master created

I have found that this gives more national motion than before. Does anyone have an issue with this workflow or have a better idea on how to speed this up and make it more streamlined?

Thanks for your help upfront.
