I have noticed an odd thing with Windows Movie Maker and interlaced AVI files. I captured nearly 1 hour of video to my PC using WMM. Quality was perfect.
Then I added some titles to the video using WMM, saved as movie in AVI format, created DVD project using Sonic DVD Studio and burnt to DVD.
The movie quality during playback on TV is perfect EXCEPT at points where a title is displayed. It seems WMM loses the interlacing when rendering the video with titles on top.
Anyone know why this is? If I save the movie from WMM as MPEG2/4 or other, might this solve the problem?
