Long HD program to DVD?
on Nov 19, 2009 at 5:18:51 pm

Hello,

I'm working on a fairly long program (1280 x 720 XDCAM EX / 160-170 mins) in FCP, and I need to get it on a DVD 5. Tests out of Compressor are coming out generally good (it's an installation video, and there's not a lot of fast motion or colors), but here and there edges are getting a little jagged. Is there a setting I'm missing? Average bitrate is 3.3.

I've also run a few tests on CinemaCraft MP (6-8 passes), but the results haven't been as good as Compressor, which surprises me. Is there a rule of thumb for the number of passes CCMP needs?

Thanks for any help.

J

Difficult to tell, you haven't provided any or your settings other than bit rate!

Please provide a detailed run down of exactly what settings you are using.
