Best settings HD project to SD DVD
on Jul 5, 2008 at 8:27:13 pm

I edited a 720P project in Premiere Pro CS3 and need to make a wide screen SD DVD in Encore. I've tried many different settings but the results are mediocre at best. If anyone has any sugestions on how to improve these results I would greatly appreciate it...

What setting have you tired?

Encore is not the greatest MPEG-2 transcoder out there, by a fair margin.

I set it to MPEG2 DVD in the Premiere Media Encoder window and put it on the highest quality setting. Then I would take that MPEG2 file and import it into Encore. Can you recomend a better way?
Thanks..

Can you detail exactly what you don't like about what it produces and how you have viewed those results?

There are a lot artifacts and noise especially on the wide scenes. I did another experiment by rendering the whole project to a quicktime file using the H264 codec set at 100% quality in Premiere. Then I took that file and converted it to an MPEG2 DVD file in Sorenson Squeeze 4.5 and then imported the mpeg file into Encore. There I noticed an improvement. Any sugestions to improve upon this?
Regards, Philip

There's no real point in introducing another step like going to QT H.264 (which isn't a great AVC codec).

Have you made sure that Encore is not trying to deinterlace your progressive footage?

Try a demo of Procoder and compare the results.
