What does everyone use for DVD/Blu-Ray encoding?

I'd be using CS4 for the video editing and dvd/blu-ray authoring, but could someone recommend a better encoder than Adobe Media Encoder?

How is Adobe's signal flow with a seperate encoder?

Many thanks,
Clint

Here's a fairly complete list of compliant and non-compliant encoders:

HC Encoder is a great free mpeg2 encoder, with extremely professional results, comparable to Cinema Craft Encoder.

For HD content, you will want to export from Premiere in the Matrox HD MPEG2 I-Frame codec in the same framerate/resolution as your source footage. Bring that into a program like Virtual Dub and Apply a resize filter using the Lanczos3 algorithm, or if you use AVISynth, use the Spline32Resize algorithm.

As for Blu-ray Encoding, I typically do everything in h264. Since Encore can be picky about Blu-ray compliant files, I let Adobe Media Encoder do those. Matrox has a new product called Compress HD which does faster than realtime h264 encoding from within the Adobe Media Encoder. You might want to look into getting that.
