Greetings,

The Encore manual states you can import m2v files, but it seems as Encore wants to re-transcode them. Is there a way to stop that from happening? Imported ac3 files don't get re-transcoded.

Thanks,
Don

How was the .m2v file encoded? What software was used and what were the encoding settings?

Encore doesn't support HD-DVD encoding - it accepts SD DVD compliant files and Blu-Ray disc compliant files.

For HD-DVD you will need DVDSP.

HD DVD encoded to MPEG-2 should be usable in Encore without re-transcoding - IF you build to Blu-ray. However, if you try to build a DVD, it will get re-transcoded to be MPEG-2 legal for DVD.

[Jeff Bellune] "For HD-DVD you will need DVDSP."

You can also go with Ulead's DVD MovieFactory 6 Plus. Pretty good value for "basic' HD-DVD Authoring (imho), and it also includes Blu-ray burning (direct from video source).

If he used Compressor, and DVDSP metadata was enabled, then I'm 99.9% sure he's on a Mac. Does Ulead have Mac versions of their software?

Nope, I don't believe Ulead has Mac versions of their software. But today, alot more folks have both platforms and/or a Mac running Windows software.
