CS4 Encore h264 Retranscoding?
on Sep 20, 2010 at 2:56:10 pm

Hi there,

after 6 months experimenting with my new SONY Handycam which delievers AVCHD videos, I finally cut the project with Final Cut (including 5.1. surround) and worked myself through the Encore Handbook (because DVD Studio Pro can't handle Blu-Ray authoring). Finally I bought myself a Blu-Ray Burner and did some more or less sucessful tests.
Damn, it's hard to be a early mover and NOT doing authoring as a profession :-)

Long talk, short sense:
I send my 85 min. cut from Final Cut (imported as Apple ProRes444 interlaced (upper halfframe) to Compressor using the following adjustments:

Quicktime h.264
1920 x 1080i (upper halfframe)
Best quality

I thought Encore will not transcode that file (as it doesn't do with MPEG2s or Ac3s), but it does.

Is there something wrong with my presets? What should I adjust to

hi götz,
quicktime h264 is h264 in a quikcitme-wrapper to play it back in quicktime, but it has nothing to do with BD-complient streams.

BD-streams are elementary streams not streams with audio and video in one file.

you can encode the required files using compressor 3.5 that comes with FCP7. it has a specific BD-setup, but I would advice to use adobe media encoder that comes with CS4, because it´s creating a better output. it´s using the mainconcept-engine that is very good.
