Blue Ray for Europe (24 fps or 25 fps)
on Mar 5, 2012 at 3:11:30 pm

Hi,
i need to make a blueray DVD(on a mac)and am confused by the infos
i found so far. It`s just a movie (5min.) that should play in any blueray player
(in europe, germany), no menues etc.

As i understand it, blueray requires 1080p24 for Europe. Or 1080i50.
My material is 1080p25 and some stock footage clips 1080p29.97
What would be the best way to go?

1. Convert all media files to 1080p24
2. Do the editing in FCP in a 24p sequence
3. Deliver a 24fps clip to the sound studio and get a 24fps sound file
(wich format would be best?)
4. Put the audio in my 24fps sequence
5. render a movie file at 24 fps
6. encode the movie file in adobe encore
7. burn blueray disk from inside adobe encore

Or can i just work in 1080p25 (convert my stock clips also to 25fps) get a 25fps sound clip and render a 1080p25 movie with sound that gets encoded in encore?

I´m still quite at the beginning of the project, so all ways are still open to go.

Since this is the first blueray all tipps are really appreciated.

Matthias

mathias,
it´s a question of your distribution-area. if you are in europe (like me), then it wouldn´t be a problem to work with 1080p25, but be awared, that blu-ray could only handle 1080i50, so it will be a 108psf25 at last.

if you need to produce an international BD it´s highly recommended to go 1080p24 as 25/50fps are not supported from the player in USA, japan and many more countries.

cheers

I am new to Encore, tired of other poor authoring softwres, inclufing the FCP option. I shoot 1080i50, 25fps, my question, how is quality of the conversion from 1080i50 AppleProRes made in FCP to 24p in Encore?
I understand that 24p can read in any bluray player no matter if it is not a multisystem.
Thanks

carlo,
there are a few workflows how to do this, but mainly you need to deinterlace your 1080i50 to 1080p25 and then slow it down to 24fps. this is called conforming and can be done with apple cinema-tools with a simple mouse-click.

you can also try to use apple compressor and do a real format-conversion while frame-control is working as well, but my results with it is not very good for HD-video.

so I would advice to use the ´conforming´-way as it is a common EUROPE<>USA-workflow as well.

cheers
