Hi Rafael,

Thanks to all!

Everyone has voiced concerned over WHY I am deinterlacing footage that was shot and edited as progressive,
The reason is simple. I am not. The setting you are looking at is only the method used by compressor should I elect
to deinterlace. You cannot leave it blank.

I have now deselected the adaptive details setting.

Anyway I have found the culprit and it was improper preference settings in Studio Pro 4.

My crime was NOT setting Studio Pro Preferences PRIOR to importing assets. Studio Pro responded
in the worst possible way. Without warning It just quietly went about its business of making good video
look like amateurish crap.

Problem solved.

Why not go from 1080i to 720p to ntsc for dvd?
I have an HD camera i need to final output to sd dvd.
