I have been having trouble exporting a video into .m2v that is 1280 by 720 using Compressor. My source footage is 720p, but when I export it using one of the DVD presets, the result in always 720 by 480. Is there anyway I can exporting it into 720p, or should I use a completely different format?
The Reason I was trying to build a 720p m2v file, was because I wanted to enhance the quality of the video, but now I know that is not the way to do it. Therefore, what IS the best way to enhance the quality of a m2v file?
Well, the only way to improve the quality of a DVD is to throw more data at it (a higher data rate, yielding a larger file.) There are a couple of other methods - but it's not going to significantly make it look better when blown up on a HD screen.
Either BluRay DVD or a different delivery method will let you access the full high definition information.
"560/#"??? I don't quite understand, the highest I can go on the "average"(I meant "average" not "minimum" on my last post) and "maximum" bit rate is 9.0 for m2v. I Have an hour and a half video that I'm trying to covert. Would the HD DVD setting work better that the SD DVD setting in the inspector?
