A problem with classical animation

We just finished work at one spot where integrate 3d abd 2d content. Our problem is that we cant obtain good quality of 2d characters countur. The Targa sequence is good, but Microsoft DV version is bad.

It looks like your fields are reversed. DV video consists of 60 fields at 30fps. So basically it has odd and even fields and it alternates the odd line and then the even lines for each second of video. Depending on which NLE you are using, if its Premiere you can just click on the clip and then go to Field options > reverse field dominance.

You should probably render everything out of AFX as uncompressed .avi and then bring it into your NLE and do your final output from there so you are only compressing once (DV is a 5:1 compression ratio) to maintain the highest quality possible. This way you can output to tape right from your NLE or if you want DVD you can let Encore or Reel DVD do the MPEG2 transcode for you.
