sorry this is a bit long ....I'm hoping someone can help me :)
Basically I'm building a wedding DVD inside Enocre... SD Pal (720x576)
I have the main feature video, short main menu background video and chapter video
My question is when I encode these to import into encore...obviously I encode as an .m2v file. I was wandering what sort of bit rate settings should I use? I have read that you should use between 6-6.5mbps max.
However, when I open a new project it asks me what sort of bit rate for the project as well ... 7.0, 8.0, 9.4 mbps (which I'm told should be no mere than 8.0mbps).
I was wandering if it actually matters what bit rate the individual video assets are (maybe encode at the highest quality) ...as Encore is going to adjust this to my project bit rate for that DVD anyway?
Also should I interlace my .m2v video assets when I encode them and bring into Encore ...as I have seen a few tutorials where they seem to leave them as progressive ...would encore interlace them at the end anyway when it burns the DVD.
