Slightly blocky DVD Quality

    I use Pinnacle Studio 7 for editing my digital videos, I capture everything from my digital camcorder at full DV quality but when I export the finished movie as an Mpeg2 file to burn to a DVD-R, the picture comes out blocky...most noticeably in places where the camera wasn't focused on (trees in the background, backgrounds in high light, etc.) Is there a way to smooth the Mpeg2 files out so that you don't have to see those blocks all the time? I know that if I put it on VHS that would do the trick and the video would be smooth, but I would like to have everything on DVD. I burn my DVD's at 8 MBPS and I don't think you can get higher quality than that without making the DVD screw up alot, so if it's at the highest burning quality possible and it's blocky then what am I supposed to do?

    The encoder doesn't sound too great if you're getting blocky video at 8Mbps. Do you have enough disk space to export as AVI and then using either cce or tmpgenc for the encoding? Either that or perhaps you can export as VBR with the same average bitrate (8Mbps) and a higher maximum bitrate.
