    Why is this ? I've authored and edited various video clips from a TV prog
    (PAL UK ) but on playback the program which VT looks like Film. Is this the
    prog I used TMPGEnc DVD or my cheapo DVD player ?

    I expected a more technical response, oh well. I think most on here should
    be able to tell the difference between film and VT don't you ? Perhaps you
    can't though

  4. Before you go getting all miffed, have a read of your question again. If
    you ask a silly question, you have to be prepared for the odd silly answer.
    You need to be more specific. Saying your DVD looks like film is very
    vague. I am sure you know what you are referring to because it is on your
    screen, we all have a plank screen and you have to let others know what the
    problem is before you can expect an answer.

    Some people go to a lot of trouble to make their video look like film. Are
    you happy that it looks like film or unhappy?
    What aspect of this film look are you referring to? Is it grainy, flickery
    or is it colour saturation, or aspect ratio you are referring to, for
    What bit rate did you author at?
    You could be asking about sprocket holes on the sides for all anyone else

    Also, a lot of the posters here make their living in the industry and
    copyright is a sensitive issue. It is not the best place to look for help
    to produce compile DVDs of copyright video clips. You may do better at or

    I'm not actually

    have a read of your question again

    What for ?!


    Hang on a minute, it's not a silly question at all
    I think I've been specific enough really. Can't you tell the difference then
    between what is shot on VT and what is shot on film when watching a TV
    program ?
    Blah de blah too much info!!!! It simply looks like the tv program was shot
    on FILM and not VIDEOTAPE when played back on my home DVD player. All I
    want to know is Why

    Come on, we know what he means, it looks like it's progressive scan.
    If you want a technical answer you have to give more technical
    information. "My image looks like film" _is_ vague. You don't even
    tell us what kind of DVD player you have! what format or video system
    you are copying to (PAL or NTSC? MPEG1 or MPEG2? DVD, VideoCD or

    My guess is TMPGEnc has deinterlaced the footage at some stage. The
    image is now a progressive scan style image, (i.e. no movement in the
    image between the lower field and the upper field, or if VideoCD,
    there IS only one field) like a film-video transfer. However, it is
    still in some way interlaced, it just doesn't look that way.
