Answer to Pixelated footage ( Dreams Creation Video Production question )

Hi, it is hard to say with out actually seeing the footage. Are you letting iDVD handle the compression for the dvd or are you doing the compression from within Final Cut? My best guess would be that for the scene the bit rate is low for the amount of activity in the scene. If your dvd player has the ability to display bit-rate during playback, turn it on and find out what the bit-rate is, it may be on the low side. iDVD isn't known for its options in improving the quality of the output, if you have a copy of Compressor you can scrub through and alter the setting while seeing a preview to make sure that it will look right.

it almost looks like I compressed it to put it on youtube, and it's only a certain segment. How do i change the bit rate just for that certain scene? and how do i find it? thanks for your help Andrew
What software are you using, i.e. what versions and do you have compressor available. Once I know that I can give you your best options. I myself use the full Final Cut Studio Package, so I may have more options available to me. I know in the newest version of iDVD there is the option for a professional encode that should produce more acceptable results. Again, without more info as to the software you are using it is hard to say.

You should be able to use FinalCut Pro to set compression markers that iDVD encoder will read. It may take a couple of tries to get it just right i.e. adding additional compression markers, but that should help out with the quality.

Let me know how this works out.
