    Exactly, I've many artifacts with PCE (horizontal/vertical)
    The link with Mark's solution seems great.
    Surely , I'll try it !

    I have a question regarding converting HDV to DV in the Edius workflow. We are using HDV cameras (Sony FX1, Canon A1 and HV10) and capturing in Edius with Project Settings Generic OHCI HD 50Hz/HDCAM HDV 1080/50i, but our final output is to be 16:9 standard DVD format.

    So my question is: at point should we make the conversion from HDV to DV? From the camera into the computer? Or when the footage is already in the computer, change the Project Settings to Generic OHCI SD PAL/DV 50i 16:9, 48kHz and then output to 16:9 MPEG2? Or leave the Project Settings as HDV and just output to regular DV MPEG2 from the HDV timeline.

    I then have convert everything from PAL to NTSC, so it would be nice to find out at what point we should make that conversion.
    Thanks.
    Keep it in HDV as long as you can BUT be aware artifacts CAN occur on Moving Horizontal and Verticle lines but a fix is available,
    Look here http://ediusforum.grassvalley.com/fo...ead.php?t=5141
    Instead of Procoder 3 Proceder Express works just as well

    In a HDV project (Pal), when I convert HDV to MPEG2/SD by PCE, the video seems blurry, especially on titles.
    When I create a DV project, the sharpness is higher and titles fine.
    Is a workarond to avoid this ?

    There is no loss in quality when capturing in the HQ codec and it makes it much easier on the CPU's while editing on the timeline.

    Keep in mind that the file size is about 4X the size of HDV so your harddrives will have to be up to it.

    Also, a Dual Core CPU should be enough to capture in HQ. I know that on a laptop when it was a Hyperthreading CPU it couldn't keep up but dualcore Laptop (three months later) had no problem at all. :)

    I've asked this same question in the User-reported issues forum, but haven't seen a response posted yet. If the problem isn't fixed you should definitely not render directly from an HD timeline to SD MPEG2 in Edius, as the results have been unacceptable. The best workflow is therefore to capture your footage as HDV and put it in a widescreen DV project for editing, from which you can render SD MPEG2 no problem. If you need both HD and SD output work in HD and render back to HDV from the timeline, then import that HDV file into a widescreen DV project to generate the SD MPEG2.

    Basically, Edius will properly convert HDV to DV but not to MPEG2, and can convert DV to MPEG2.

    mastering quality just makes sense with very special footage.
    Just variables like the motion detection and the seek-range is different to highest quality.

    Leave the resolution as long as possible in High Def.
    The last step before authoring has to be the downconversion.
    Best choice is to use Procoder ( Express ) for downconversion during export to mpeg, but it is also possible to switch the settings to SD and export after that. The export itself will become significant faster and the internal Edius-scaler is not so bad.
