I'm not sure if this is in the right section, but I'm trying like hell to find a solution to my problem. I'm using Adobe Premier Pro 1.5.
How do you get DV footage to look cooler? I'm not talking about Magic Bullet and similar filters because these don't achieve the effect I'm talking about.
I'm sure the answer lies in how you render your final cut and the codec you use. When I export using Microsoft DV AVI it looks just like I want but I end up with a almost un-noticable horizontal blind effect on darker areas of the video, but it's there.
When I use Media Encoder and render as an MPEG2-DVD I don't get the blind effect but I also don't get the look I want and the frames still have the motion of the original camera footage which is really what I'm trying to get rid of.
I'm happy to use DV AVI to export but it's the blind effect that's putting me off.
Anyone any thoughts or any pointers?
