Hi there
possible this been asked a million times, apologies for the repeat.
I have recorded 1H 50 m video on my DSLR, did all the editing, effect in adobe Premire Pro CS5.5.
what is the best way to get this into Adobe Encor Cs5 with out loosing quality.
My options are to do split the project into two sequences roughly 45 m each or less to be able to fit them on a 2 DVDs.
I am struggling with wrok Flow to see which is best to salvage as much as i can from resolution.
Encor is giving 720X576 normal DVD Pal high Quality, Can i do better please?
Should i go Dymanic Link which way better
OR
Export in Premier Pro and then import to encor
Or what do you suggest please?
Thanks
Layth

Layth,
DVD can only be SD-quality. it´s an old fashioned mid 80th-media.

it could be 720x576px for PAL or 720x480px for NTSC. if you would like to have a higher resolution, you need to create a blu-ray, which could be 1920x1080 or 1280x720, and of course could handle Sd-video as well.

OR

Hi,
if you would like to have dedicated (frame-accurate) chapter-marker which you set in premiere you should use the dynamic linking with encore and transcode the video in encore.

I would advice to use AC-3-transcoding instead of WAV.

Hi Layth,

The Dynamic Link is not recommended, you will get better control - and better results - exporting from Premiere. Use Export and choose "MPEG-2 DVD" as the format, and then choose an appropriate preset such as "PAL DVD Widescreen Progressive". You didn't say what frame rate you used, that will play a part in correct selection.

Under the VIDEO tab, Variable Bit Rate (VBR) encoding will produce better results than CBR (Constant Bit Rate). Choose VBR with 6.2 average. Might choose something like 3.0 - 6.2 - 8 for instance.

At bottom of export settings panel, check the box for "Maximum Render Quality" if you have it, don't remember if CS5.5 had that option. This helps with the downscale quality from HD to SD.

These export settings will result in two files, .m2v video and .wav audio. Open a new DVD project in Encore, then Import as Timeline, selecting both of those files together. Author and burn.

Encore should NOT transcode the video, as it will be DVD-compliant, and the audio will be transcoded to Dolby Digital AC-3 automatically.

Should look pretty good for DVD!

Thanks
