View Full Version : DV Green / Main Concept poor

04-17-2003, 01:17 PM
Well last month I complained that the RTV clips rendered to DV were greenish...
Several folks here said - Get the Main Concepts DV codec.

So I spent the $49. and downloaded it and it is terrible.

This is MainConcept 2.1 DV Codec. The greeness is gone but there is artifacting all over the place.

Maybe and older version was working better??????

my first reaction to the main concept codec was the same as yours.

I quickly changed my mind when I noticed that in the settings panel of the main concept codec there is a setting called "fastest"
It is check by default. You want to uncheck it. The artifacting will magically disappear.

To get to the settings of the main concept codec simply click on the c button to the right of the codec field.

Yup, what he said.

I frankly don't know why they have that "fastest" option since it makes the quality unacceptable, but they do, and it is the default.

Simply uncheck that box and you will then create the best DV clips possible. :)
