I find HDV looks crappy at any resolution, though being interlaced probably makes for a better DVD than anything shot at HD progressive. Yet another good reason to abandon DVD in my opinion. Though Bluray still uses interlace. Personally if I shoot in one format, I prefer to deliver in that format. Anything else is a downgrade.

Re: How I hate DVDs....

I've previously provided 3 DVDs to all my brides but this year I'm offering a customized USB drive and no DVDs. If they would like DVDs then they are welcome to pay for the authoring and production, but I'm just tired of dealing with the conversions, authoring, printing, and mailing. I'll probably need to be very clear about this before the wedding so that they're not surprised if they assume a DVD comes for free.
