I have a 13-minute video, shot in HDV 60i, edited in Premiere Pro CS4 HDV 60i (without any intermediary.) The question is how to now make the highest quality wide screen DVD. My first attempt involved using Adobe Media encoder and highest quality settings on "MPEG-DVD" to create m2v and wav files. After importing into Encore, the DVD was burned and it is certainly okay, but not great-looking. Does anyone know another way to do this using the tools that come with Premiere CS4 and Encore CS4?
It explains the problem with the common way people downscale and provides different methods for making excellent quality conversions, using only Premiere, or for best results, using completely free third party utilities.
