I know, I'm coming right out of the blue with this. It's a stupid thing with
U.S. dvd's... they glue some 30fps stuff at the front of the main title,
and if you really did the wrong thing you could wind up making the whole thing
30 fps and then bring it back to 24 fps afterwards and get all sorts of bad
artifacts, depending on just how badly you interlaced/deinterlaced.

Otherwise, how could he have gotten such bad dotcrawl from dvd's that I
have ripped without a problem?

I should have just let it drop... nevermind.
