Burning HD DVD
One of my disappointments burning DVD's now is when I use dissolves, the the images break up a little because of the added compression. I work around this by minimizing my dissolves, but the work I do involves the use of many pictures which I put against moving backdrops. It's natural to use dissolves, particularly w/ slower music, etc.

My question is this: when we move to HD DVD burning, will this same problem persist? I look forward to seeing my stuff in HD on a DVD but I like to think that problem would be resolved somewhat. Is the amount of compression required going to DVD simply too much to overcome this?

What encoder are you using?

Bill Parker November 17th, 2006 08:37 AM

I use Compressor and choose DVD best quality MPEG 2, 2-pass. I'd love to know if there's a way to have the software compress less when the dissolves appear, but that seems a stretch.

Compressor is a lackluster MPEG encoder - especially earlier versions. Are you sure you're up-to-date with your install? Also, you may want to consider moving to a more discerning MPEG encoder. Both Main Concept and BitVice are superior MPEG encoders. I personally use BitVice for nearly every track encode.
