Richard van HarderwijkRe: FCP 7 Export via Compressor for DVD Studio Pro Mastering

As Dave says, H.264 is a delivery codec (ao web delivery). You want to make a DVD, so your target codec's are MPEG2 and AC3. It is best, quality wise, not to render to different codec's in between.

If your source material is DV/DVCPRO, then don't rerender. If you put other codec's in a DV/DVCPRO timeline, follow Dave's advice and make a ProRes export (better even to change the codec of the sequence from the beginning, but you're finished, so leave it) . (If the origin is down sampled (how?) HD (H264?) then it doesn't matter much, because the target is a heavy compressed DVD, 170 min.)

Again, you must make two files: MPEG2 (video) and AC3(audio) and no H264 for DVD's. I think the most easy thing to do is use a preset setting in compressor (DVD 150 min) and change the bitrate to the settings you calculated.

In DVDSP you can import assests and it will immediately recognize the MPEG2 and AC3 files (green dot :-)

I assume you know how the programs work. OK?
