    I have burnt some movies to DVD using toast titanium 8.

    The problem is, some of the dvd's come out abit juddery when viewed on my LCD tv? When they are played on a CRT tv they play completely smooth

    Anyone know what the cause of this could be? (Toast settings?) Or anyway of preventing the occasional judders that i am getting whilst viewing the dvds on my LCD

    Many Thanks

    Hi,

    Are you converting movie files to DVD format in Toast, not just burning DVD disk images? If so, have you checked the PAL box in Preferences? Are you using two different DVD players on the two TV's? It might be the DVD player settings differ.

    Sorry I can't be much help, there isn't much you could do differently!

    Rob.

    I have had this problem when upgrading a .avi picture to a dvd disk. every few seconds it judders especially noticeable on panning.

    I assumed it is because of the step from .avi ti dvd but perhaps I am wrong.

    Any help appreciated

    nobody still have any solutions?

    Just burned another, .avi plays fine and clear, encoded on toast to video, and the dvd playback on the lcd is still coming out pixelated? Why cant it just copy EXACTLY as the .avi play?

    Any ideas? Come on people, help a mac newbie out!!!! :lease:

    i wouldv thought someone would have some ideas!?

    anyways i messed about with it myself and saved the avi file as a data cd and luckily enough my dvd played it so it came out in QUALITY picture.

    The other dvd players in the house however didnt play it so sort of a solution but still not a complete one

    I have another question, when encoding an avi file of say 1.4gb, it opts to shrink the file to 700mb.....im guessing this is where some of the quality is lost?

    now.....on DVISION, it gives you the option of selecting the size you want to shrink the avi to, so say i put in 1000mb (1gb) will this give me greater quality? and why couldnt i just re-encode it to the full 1.4gb?

    How much mb can i fit on one dvd? because i heard that some people opt to spread a movie onto dvds as it gives better quality?

    Whats the deal with dual layered dvd discs? can i put more on them?

    Thanks to anyone who can advise/help me

    How much fits on a DVD is printed onto it ;)

    Anyway 4.7 GB on single layer and 8.5 GB on dual layer. You need to make sure your drive supports dual layer burning.

    Please note DVD files are limited to 2 GB but this is something you DVD burning software will handle.

    Jiddering indicates a problem during the encoding process or the codec itself.
    Mainly the lack of physical memory or too many concurrent processes on your machine will cause this.
    I suggest to end all applications except your burning software and then try again.

    BTW: Shrinking results in a more grainy picture and in the worst case it looks washed out and shows blocks

    So how do i go about burning it to dvd WITHOUT shrinking the file during encoding, because toast seems to automatically shrink the files to 700mb hence the less of quality???

    I am not familiar with Toast (although with a couple of other DVD buring software) but there is for sure a setting NOT to shrink.
    This is what I have found after a quick skim on their webpage

    'To burn this show to a DVD-Video disc, select a menu style and other optional settings. Click the red record button to begin the process. '
    and there seems to be a 'Change Recorder Settings' in the start guide

    Well i can burn the avi to divx DVD disc, takes about 5mins, same quality as avi on my pc but it only plays on one dvd player so far.

    I have converted the avis onto a dvd video but thats when its shrunk and loses quality but plays on ALL dvd players (Plus it takes about 2 hours as it encodes the avi)

    So i still am kinda stuck as one plays on all dvd players but not so good quality whereas the other is great quality but only plays on few dvd players :confused:

    Are you sure you are using blank dvd's and not cd's?

    The file would have to be shrunk to fit on a cd.


    Just a guess.

    nope they are definently dvds. It allows me to put the whole 1.4gb avi onto disc if i select DATA disc, its just when i select dvd-video disc it says that it will encode the avi to play on dvd players which gives a quality loss :(
