Michael, you have to turn on the Frames control in Compressor, otherwise you'll get the jagged lines.

I would recommend importing off your SxS card and then using XDCAM Transfer to convert to MOV files. Then bring the MOV files into Compressor and convert to MPEG-2. Don't forget to turn on Frames and to make sure DV Anamorphic is also checked (so your footage will display correctly on a 16:9 display.

Frames takes MUCH longer to compress, but it's worth it. Do a search if you need all the details, it's been discussed many times before.

I wish the forums would allow you to attach Compressor "Settings" files. Then we could simply share the settings that have worked for us. (moderator are you listening?) :)

If 1080p is not so important I have had great results shooting in 720p60.

The 60p really translates well to 60i for DVD.

I get working Blu-Ray's from 30p shot material from my EX1. Tested on set top's, PS3, and computer blu-ray readers. My workflow almost always ends up with a final uncompressed AVI render (29.97fps 1080p) output from After Effects CS4. When I import the AVI and transcode the footage to a blu-ray in Adobe Encore CS4, I just setup the transcode settings for 23.976fps 1080p spec and it does the pulldown for me. Never had a problem doing this yet.
