1920x1080 from Premiere into Encore

Just finished editing my 1920x1080 video in Premiere Pro. Something tells me that I shouldn't export it at that size and H264 format. So, my gut says to export using the Premiere preset for MPEG2-DVD, but that seems to default to 720x480...and that is not the same 1.78 aspect ratio as my original HD video...720x480 is 1.5...so black bars will be added to my video and I have to just live with it?

I just exported 2 hours of 1920 x 1080 using MP2 Blu-ray and HD 1080i 29.97

my input files were all MP4. It work well, burned to a Blu-ray and plays great.

Hope this helps.

John

Hi, John. Thanks for quick reply :-) I forgot to add that I am not burning to Blu-ray, burning to DVD. My understanding is that currently the only format that a DVD player can understand is MPEG2 at STANDARD definition. DVD will not take HD files in 1280x720 or 1920x1080, but Blu-ray will. It makes sense you had success, since you burned HD video format onto a Blu-ray..not a DVD.

So, if this still holds true, I am faced with shrinking down from 1080 to 720x480 and hence my question.

Hi Alfredo,

I make standard DVDs for the same customer that I make the Blu-rays. The bars on the side are quite small and I've never seen them as a problem, even on a 60" flat screen. You could create a DV export, bring it back into Premiere and resize it by a few percentage point. Example size 104%. You will lose some from the top and bottom, but you will fill a widescreen. I would try it with a ten minute segment and see which you like better.

Good Luck,

John

Hi Alfredo,

You're correct that by definition, the DVD spec is 720x480, always SD video. For HD, one must go to Blu-ray.

HD video is 16:9 and you can make a 16:9 DVD as well, but the math does not come out exactly right when converting HD to SD, so with the MPEG-2 DVD file at 16:9, you will have very thin pillar box bars left and right. The easy solution in Media Encoder (when making MPEG-2 DVD file) is to choose "Scale to Fill" and that eliminates the black without stretching the image.

Thanks

thanks Jeff! Everything turned out great :-) the 720x480 version of my HD 1920x1080 video turned out looking very nice. I burned my first DVD movie and played it on a projector and the quality held up nicely. The tiny black bars on the side of the video due to a slight difference in aspect ratio were negligible.
