    Well that Bounce could be from a few different things Like dropping Frames while Captureing , Or if your Capture card or the Capture software captures with the Field order reverced you will get a Jumpy effect in High motion scenes....

    You shouldn"t be dropping frames when captureing to Mpeg2 useing your System so It might be the Capture Software....
    Maybe try something else to capture to Mpeg2 Like "InterVideo WinDVR 3.0" .....

    I'm going to guess that the problem is NOT from frame-dropping or other capture problems.

    Does theimage seem to drift a bit up and down? If so, then a Time Base Corrector should stabilize the picture - I remember dealing with this years ago in the old days of dubbing videos. (Especially with VHS players)

    Now, I too would like to hear about any recommended digital solutions.

    Have you analized the Field Order of the AVI file before encodeing it to Mpeg?? Because if you Just leave the encoder Field settings as there default settings then there is a 50/50 Chance that it is set Oposite of what the source files field order is...You have to know your source files Field order before encodeing it to Mpeg or it could be encoded with the wrong Field order which would make it look like it is Jumping up and down one scan Line...
    You can also try De-Interlaceing and see if that helps....

    I tried recording VHS last night - and indeed witnessed the "bouncing" It's actually in te Video feed - so no amount of field order adjustment will address the issue. (For me anyway)

    The de-interlacing is a neat idea, what SW do you recommend for this? I'm capturing as a DV file via Pinnacle Studio 9.

    You can de-Interlace while encodeing in MainConcept...
