I recently converted a Divx 23.976 fps video to KDVD. I used pulldown.exe to do a pulldown to 29.97 fps. I observed that it causes jerkiness ONLY during panning (camera moves slowly from one direction to another). I think pulldown.exe is causing this and I want to know if there is an alternative program. I use the simple command line
pulldown.exe XXX.mpv XXX.m2v
Maybe I should be using more parameters, if so what are they?

There isn't and if you understand pulldown correctly, you'll see that it doesn't make sense to exist. Pulldown doesn't actually change the frame rate, it only enables a flag in the stream telling the DVD player to convert 23.976 to 29.97 throught a process known as telecining. So the jerkiness must be in your 23.976 encoded movie already...

Does CCE have a reputation of creating jerky videos? I'm using CCE to convert Divx to KDVD.

Be carreful !
pulldown set the flag, that's true. But this flag is to say to the _player_ to do the pulldown.

The pulldown operation is a work on the order (and number) of the frames the player is reading. Thus, the jerkiness can be due to a bad work done by the player.

In other words, it does not exist in the video itself.

Nice explanation, DialHot. About CCE: I do this kind of conversion all the time using CCE and never had problems of jerkiness.

I used DoPulldown by Woolsoft and it always says "finished with errors" with a red X. What does this mean?

no there's no manual. How about DVDLAB? Is it a good program? Could it be the one causing the problem? What other DVD authoring software do you recommend?

Authoring soft never do anythign on the video content,so it's not the one to blame.

Your problem is either in the player, or this strange error you have and I never had. Use pulldown.exe directly from command line, to be sure.

I've always noticed this jerkiness on my Panasonic S25 when playing my KDVDs encoded with CCE. I routinely let DVDlab do the pulldown but have tried pulldown.exe, but with the same result for both. I do notice the same jerkiness when I play the discs on my Sony 315S, and they do not exist in the source.
