getting rid of squished heads look

Hi,

I'm very new to HDV but have worked in SD in past.

I have captured some video on my Sony HC3 and want to put it on DVD.

I Have Final Cut Pro 5 and still learning to use it.

I have exported the same movie in 2 different modes, first one being the default settings, the second movie with NTSC DV settings. Both movies were made into Quicktime movies

when burned on to DVD using Toast, the default movie looked ok but some of the motion seemed to almost have a ghosting effect, the second movie with the DV settings had great color and didn't have the ghosting effect in motion ,but the heads were kinda squished and didn't look right.

I was wondering how I can get the great color and no ghosting of the DV settings without the squished heads. I also would like to get the 16:9 ratio (even tho I don't have a 16:9 tv, I just like the look of the black bars and seeing the entire picture).

I don't have a HD DVD player or burner so all movies will be played on SD for the near future.

I hope this makes sense and someone can help me

What framerate are you working with? You'll get that weird ghosting if you don't export 24p as 23.976, or 30p as 29.976. The 16:9 ratio is achieved by exporting the movie with a 16:9 flag, this is done in the DVD encoder. That way the DVD player knows to adjust the aspect ratio of your movie accordingly.

Hope this helps.
