DVCPROHD to DVD
on Mar 4, 2009 at 10:03:24 pm

I am producing a 1hr DIY DVD in DVCPROHD at 720p

What's the best way to compress to make multiple DVD's?

What's the best way to compress to make multiple Blu-Ray discs?

I use FCP so will Compressor 3.0.5 do the job for the dvd's?

What program is best for blu-ray?

Also, the client wants to make this video viewable on a standalone compact player of some sort. So i guess once i get the specs needed for that i'll know how to compress. But has anyone compressed to a standalone player before? If so, what's the process?

I know I'm throwing alot out and i appreciate any and all comments.

TIA

Sam

These subjects have been covered, the Blu Ray workflow is just a few posts down from this one.

For DVD, please use the search.

"a standalone compact player of some sort"

Sorry, a little too vague.

Explain "standalone compact player" a little and we can probably help. Does the client want something that they can click and the file will automatically play from a specific player module?

If so, a flash file with a custom player skin would be the best bet. I believe you can take a flash video file and make it into an executable projector file that has an .exe extenstion. So when you click on it, it automatically opens and plays. The projector conversion embeds the player functionality into the file I believe.

You also don't have to outlay the expense for the full-blown Adobe Flash software. There are companines that make apps that will convert a flash video with skin into a projector file. I have no idea how well they work (or don't work), but we did the reverse recently with a $29 program where we took a client's projector file of a video (the company that produced it was out of business), and converted it to a .swf file.
