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?
