Next problem; input resolution
on Sep 3, 2005 at 9:31:35 pm

Hiya,

Does anyone know of a means of forcing Encore DVD to accept files that are not the standard, 720x576 or 704x576?

I mean, its going to transcode the buggers in the end, so why can't it just resize the video itself?

It just means more diskspace usage and more computer resources... and most of all... my time! lol.

Anyone any pointers? Any fixes? Plugins etc.

David.

Encore requires video to be full frame and DVD-legal.

The only suggestion I have is to either resize or matte the clips in PPro or the NLE of your choice, and then export a full frame 720x576 25 fps AVI or MPEG-2 file, then import that into Encore.

See now, that's what I didn't want to do, because it takes longer! I was wondering if there is a way to force Encore to accept the file, and then transcode the file itself, into what it needs?

Thank you anyway!

I've noticed that when encoding within Premiere using the Encore DVD settings, the files (with just video) come out very, very BIG... filesize I mean. 21 minutes ended up being 1 gig!

This is using the Premiere Pro MPEG2DVD encode settings; PAL DV HQ 7MB CBR 1 Pass.

Maybe it would be better to use a 2 pass?

21 minutes encoded at 7 Mb/s being 1 GB sounds about right.

If you want more time, encode at a lower bit rate.
