Ok, here's the situation. I have a 2 hour and 27 minute video that I need to fit on one DVD at a good quality. Doesn't need to be the highest quality, but the higher the better. I am running Adobe Premier Pro 1.5, thus using Adobe Media Encoder, that comes with it. Ultimately, I need to bring the file into Encore to put it on DVD.
I am normally an FCP and Compressor user, so I am not too familiar with Adobe's compression. Any ideas, thoughts or suggestions??? Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
I can tell you that with 2hrs 27min of video, your bit rate will need to be about 3.9 MBps or less, which in many cases might provide good quality, but it won't be the best looking image. But it may do for you. Try importing an AVI and use Encore's automatic bit rate setting (you won't have to select it, Encore will apply it automatically).
