compression with Cinemacraft SP 3:

Hello everyone--perhaps someone can help me. I have a 2 hour file edited in Premiere 5.5-the master file was rendered with the 24p codec. The footage was shot in 24p advanced mode on a Panasonic AGDVX100A. Now I want to compree the file for a DVD. i am going to use CinemaCraft SP 3. Can someone give me the BASIC settings for the BEST looking DVD possible? (frame rate/pulldown/mpg settings, etc) Once again--24p footage. THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!

I don't have cinemacraft in front of me - but whether or not you use that or Adobe Media Encoder:

At 120 min...560/# of mins
560/120 = 4.666 mb/s using AC3 audio.
Make sure you go 2 pass VBR encoding
Do not deinterlace.

Wherever you're authoring the DVD needs to know it's 24fps, and it'll do the framerate insertion for you.
