    Hi All,

    I'm having some problems with encoding several cartoons to for dual purpose use on both my IPOD (5G) and Apple TV. I used to use NERO in the Windows World and recently upgraded to a new Mac Pro.

    I've tried using the Animation and IPOD High Res settings and the outcome on both files shows lines during fast moving scenes. The goal is to have a high quality file that will play both on the 5g and AppleTV.

    Any assistance is appreciated. Also, are their other applications that do a better job other the handbrake and VH? I have both and haven't been happy with animiation encodes, although Movies seem to be working well so far.

    Are the sources interlaced ? If so turn on deinterlacing in HB.

    VFR took care of a lot of this for me. The upcoming combing detection will pretty much seal the deal. ;)

    Always check the picture preview mode, it usually reveals the lines you describe. You'll want to turn on de-interlace for most animation and older TV shows and films.

    Pixilated video and audio stutters for Apple tv 2

    I'm trying to backup an animated DVD by converting it to MPV (via Handbrake and VLC on a PC) so I can pull it strait up on my apple tv 2.
    The playback is pixilated and the audio stutters no matter what I do...

    I installed the same 2 apps on my Macbook Air, used remote disc across the network to pull from my PCs DVD drives - worked (couple of crashes when adjusting settings).

    I think I had bad audio settings with the PC but am guessing it was more than that.
    On the PC the AAC (Core Audio) track didn't show up by default. On the MAC I can select add all tracks and remove everything but that core track and the AC3 Pass thru track. On the PC the preview accurately reflected that the rip would produce garbage and on the preview for the Mac it accurately predicted a good rip. Light artifacts on default APTV2 settings on an animated movie.

    I added the pass thru because I would like to use 5.1 surround in the future - not sure if that will do the trick but hope so.

    When dealing with older animated shows on DVD, I tend to use both the decomb and detelecine filters to clean up the lines you see. You can alternatively use deinterlace, but that degrades the overall image quality depending on the filter's speed (which, considering what the iPod 5G can handle, isn't much of a travesty).
