Shot in 24fp on HDV cam, trying to burn to DVD

...and it looks like crap. i see black flashes, i see strobing in motion shots. it looks MESSY. i have wasted ALOT of time and DVDs trying different ways to burn them. i am a novice with shooting in HD but this is a wedding i shot for a client and i want it to be good as possible in playback.
soooo..... i have used the search button and read alot fo stuff that came close to the answer but am hoping someone has the definitive i answer i need.

Question: if i shot on a HDV cam in 24 fp and want to burn it to a standard DVD what is the best settings for:
exporting it from final cut 7 (using quicktime or quicktime conversion) so that i can burn it using iDVD (preferablly)

thank you a TON!!! -JS

Try giving this a read!

This is for Vegas and DVD Arcitecht how ever the principles will probably be the same..


Sony Creative Software - Download: 24p and Panasonic AG-DVX100 and AJ-SDX900

Please scroll down to Page 7 and see Production workflow for 24P



Hope it works.

well your in FCP. I would export Compressor and export to DVD as follows in Compressor.
(video format)
NTSC
23.98
16:9
(Quality)
two pass BVR Best)
Average bit rate: 5
Maximum bit rate: 8
motion estimatero: Best

Encoder
Resize: better to best
output fields: progressive


that's what I tend to use for my 720p 24fps to DVD. results are fairly good and consistant. Try that and see how it looks, see if it helps.

i get so confused in the HD world with all these codecs and compression rates and etc etc i have alot of learning to do. i feel like i REALLY messed up shooting in 24 fps and prolly won't do it again. what a headache.

i guess you can always SUBTRACT frames to get a 24 fps look but can't really ADD frames...?
sory to sound like a newb. need to spend more time learning but wanna make money and keep shooting while i am getting my learn on :-)

hope this works............-JS
