I firewire Digital 8 video onto my PC and edit movies with Pinnacle. I use TMPEnc to convert to SVCD compatible MPEG2. Any motion in the resulting video is "eyewateringly" juddery. This can be considerably improved if I mess around with the interlace setings of TMPGEnc, but is still significantly less smooth than the original camcorder tape. This is a UK system so I am of course talking about PAL here. I know one has to compromise with image resolution when going from DV to SVCD, but does anyone know why the image is not smooth? And is there anything I can do about it?
