I bought camera in USA because of much lower prices then here. I am living in Europe.
I used built in DVD function in Premiere, but also tried Nero and some other software which came with by DVD burner.
I also tried to burn DVD in NTSC format and play it in computer, and I've got the same results, so I don't really thnink that the problem lays in conversion from NTSC to PAL.
The quality of original movie, when I play it in Premiere is better but there are also some horizontal lines when camera is turning left or right or objects are moving, though this lines are much more subtle.
Is there any difference in copying movie from camera to computer just through firewire card, or is is better to have some kind of hardware graphic card to do this? Should there be a loss in quality when copying from DV equimpent to computer through FireWire?
My movies are about 20 minutes. I can't tell you right now what settings I am encoding, but I try to use the best so far as I understand all the options.
Anyway I have to make this clear:
When I burn direct the movie from Adobe Premiere it will come out as described in previous post. When I just encode it with the same settings as I set for burning, to mpeg or avi, it come out much better. Then when I burn AVI file with any of three softwares I tried to use to DVD all will result in same bad picture. Do you have any idea where is the problem?
I will try to post later today or tommorow a sample video or just snapshot how it looks. I can not now, because I am at work, and I don't have the movie here.
thanks for help
