Just produced my second film using Visionlab studio ... primarily using weather effects for a music video and once again I'm experiencing a drop in quality.

I'm editing with Final Cut Express on an Imac ... exporting to Visonlab as (.mov) and then rendering back to FCE and compressing as DV-Pal (.mov).

The quality drop is not apparent until I burn the film to dvd / or export to dv tape and then watch it on tv - it effects anything moving eg instead of an arm moving clearly it has a an almost double frame stutter effect.

I have kept everything interlaced through out the editing / effects process.

Please help as I'm desperate to fix this.

Maybe your interlacing is the wrong way round?

Well, depending on whether you chose Interlaced (odd) or Interlaced (even) when you created the project, create a new project, choose the other one, and render to see if it clears up the problem. If it does, then they were the wrong way round, and you have a solution.

Used interlaced (even) before - but I'll give it a go! ... Cheers!
