One recurring problem has plagued me with almost every dvd made from avi/divx/xvid files.
I use Dvd2svcd and DVD Author to produce my ntsc dvd-r’s and notice on a very regular basis that in any given movie whenever a car speeds by, someone runs close to the camera, there’s a sweeping panoramic view of scenery, or monkeys bungee-jumping off the Empire State Builiding, etc. the frame-rate drops in a similar way to a low-spec pc running a latest game when a lot of action fills the screen. Its so noticable that the dvd is rendered unwatchable imho. :a
It isn’t my pc system affecting the playback (amd3000/1gb) as it happens on my standalone player too.
The original avi tends to have next to no juddery action like the finished vob file does, and the audio seems largely unaffected, so I was wondering if there was anything people could suggest I do to make the finished vob produce much more smoother video movement - as smooth as the original avi file at least?
I have not experimented with deinterlacing at all, so should have probably tried that before posting here (though I would love recommendations as to what settings I use) , but still I wonder if anyone has had this problem before, or know of a long-term solution?
