I’ve been palying around with D2SRoBa/DVD2SCVD recently. I really like it. But… I took an AVI captured from a DV camcorder (shot in 16:9) and ran it thru D2SRoBa, using all the default settings, to get an authored DVD. I tried all the aspect ratio combinations to see what transfered correctly to my 4:3 TV. Both 16:9 (borders added, encoded as 4:3) and Anamorphic (no borders, encoded as 16:9) played correctly on my 4:3 TV (with black bars at top and bottom). However, the Anamorphic version showed motion jaggies (artifacts, edge combing, what ever you want to call it) on both my computer screen and my TV when played back, whereas the the “borders added, encoded as 4:3” looked great on both computer and TV. Now I understand that Anamorphic is preferable because it is “future proof” when I finally get that 16:9 TV, so I would prefer to use that format.
Why does the Anamorphic look so much worse than the other when the settings were exactly the same otherwise? What can I do to fix it?
