I do know that folk are reporting this issue on ANY conversion to 480 video. They look at it and go Yuck, it's terrible.
As I've heard this complain about ALL 480 NTSC and PAL Video DVDs, my take is that you are reducing the quality by choosing an outdated video standard. Stick to 1080 if you want better quality.
I have just burned a 480p video,along with several other videos totalling 4 1/2 hours, onto a dvd using the Freemake Video Converter.
The 480p video degraded for a second on one of the faster moving scenes!
If I was to convert the 480p video to 1080p, first, and then burn it to dvd; would it Not Degrade, please tell me? I am looking for a way to overcome these niggling degrades. I am told they occur due to the bitrate failing. Unfortunately, Freemake do not have any adjustments for Bitrate when converting to dvd format! So I am wondering if I could treat the video in any way so that the dvd convention will get it right?
