Encore DVD 2.0 anamorphic 16:9
on Mar 7, 2007 at 8:39:02 pm

Hi, I can't import the .m2v video files that were shot and edited in anamorphic video 1064x576 PAL. The project-transcode-menu and the help-manual inform me, that Encore 2.0 only supports 720x576 Pal. Is this true? I am currently looking at the Trial Version because I need a DVD authoring software with advanced features (.ac3 5.1, subtitle import options, 16:9 high resolution). Is there an upgrade available or another product or solution?

Best, anet

Anamorphic widescreen PAL video is not 1064x576. It is 720x576 with a PAR of 1.422.

Encore can transcode PCM audio to 2-channel .ac3. It can import and export already-transcoded 5.1 .ac3 files, but you cannot transcode 5.1 .ac3 audio from inside of Encore.

You can import several types of subtitle files into Encore from programs like Lemony and Subtitle Workshop.

Encore has no trouble authoring high-quality 16:9 Standard Definition DVDs. If you want HD-DVD and/or Blu-Ray authoring solutions, then you must look elsewhere. Sonic Scenarist can do HD-DVD and/or BR if you purchase enough of its various components. Expect a really hefty price tag.

HTH,

Incorrect resolution. 1024x756 is the square equivalent of a 16:9 widescreen video (720x576, 1.422 PAR) and only meant for compositing work 3D animation and that stuff. If you encode it directly to MPEG-II, you get an invalid stream because it isn't compliant with the specs of the DVD (Video) format (wrong block allocation etc.). Of course everything else that Jeff said also applies.
