Hello all. I am trying to find the best settings to encode my Family Guy Season One DVDs. Here is my dilemma: the DVDs are interlaced. When I deinterlace them using Nero Recode & the Nero Digital AVC Cinema codec, the video quality throughout the entire movie significantly deteriorates (check out the street lines on the AVC deinterlaced file). If I do not deinterlace the DVDs, the video quality is spectacular. However, of course, I get bad interlaced video quite often.
When I inverse tecline the DVDs using Gnot & XviD, the video quality is spectacular throughout most of the video--it slightly deteriorates when the original material was interlaced. Of course, the file size is much larger, and the quality is not as good as the non-interlaced AVC encoding.
Here is a zip file with examples of each different encoding:
My question to you guys: does Nero Recode just do a bad job deinterlacing? Do I have to just stomach the interlaced material if I want spectacular video quality throughout the entire movie? The video quality of the deinterlaced AVC is just too bad for my tastes. What should I do?
