  1. I have a few recordings that feature a bit of shaky camera, and whenever I try to patch together in an editor (VSDC Free Video Editor at the moment), the result becomes incredibly blurry whenever the camera jerk a little bit. The originals are shaky, but not unwatchable by any means. I've tried everything I can think of, frame rate (25 fps), resolution (720x576), bit rate (8000 kbps maximum), display aspect ratio (16:9), everything is identical, but however I try to convert, the result is a smeared piece of shit. What could I possibly be misunderstanding about video conversion?

    Don't deinterlace it if you're going back to MPEG2 for DVD

    Notice how it was interlaced before, but progressive after ? Your program is probably applying a single rate blend deinterlace . 25 frames/s interlaced is 50 fields/s, so the motion is smoother than 25 progresive frame/s

    Code:
    Scan type : Interlaced
    
    Scan type : Progressive

  3. I don't see deinterlacin anywhere, would that be on conversion or import? I don't really know what deinterlacing is

    I've never used that program, but for most editing programs, there will be a project or timeline settings, AND export settings. Make sure both are set to 720x576 25 frames/s interlaced

    It's a big topic, but at the most basic level, deinterlacing is converting interlaced to progressive . Use search if you want more info

    I cannot find "interlace," "deinterlace," "progressive," or "scan type" anywhere other than the file description. I guess I'll have to move on to a different program. Thanks for the response though
