slow motion

I need some help. I shot some hd (sony z1) and captured footage as hd, dropped into standard definition timeline and during close up slow motion it has a lot of banding and like a blur, not smooth at all. Loks better in timeline than the final dvd. Is there a different setting to encode at. I am encoding to sd best quality. Maybe a field order problem. Never had one to look this bad. A lot of jagged edges. I am sending file to motion for optical flow filer, but around 20 hours of rendering. Am I missing something?

Are you sending an interlaced file to compressor? I export at 30p for DVD's.

Yeah, try changing your field order to "none" in the sequence settings, assuming it's interlaced. I usually edit in HD even if it's going to DVD and I've had luck just leaving the frame rate whatever it is natively.

I've had the same problem before. First, I would suggest making sure that your frame rate matches in both the sequence and the footage. A workaround that I found was to export it off the timeline as a movie and drop it back in. Then, you can slow it down. Hope that helps!
