Progressive Footage Rendered To DVD Architect
on Nov 11, 2015 at 8:00:23 am

I apologize if this has been asked before but I couldn't find this exact question.


I have content that I edited, 1920 X 1080 59.940P (60p) and I want to burn it to a 29.97 DVD. (Not Blu-Ray)

I am using DVD Architect so I choose MainConcept MPEG-2 and then select the DVD Architect Preset for Widescreen.


Now, all the DVD Architect presets have Upper Field First selected. I found a preset that I had created that has Lower Field Selected. I had read somewhere here that NTSC DVD's expect Lower Field First which is why I created that preset, but why would DVDA have presets with Upper Field First selected?

Is it true that the DVD standard only allows for 24p to be encoded in progressive? If so I am a little confused, given the progressive source, which Field Order would be correct.

I am also assuming I cannot burn a 29.97p DVD disc.

I hope I am making sense. :)

Because NTSC DVD MPEG is always Upper Field First. You're getting confused with NTSC DV which is Lower Field First. MPEG2 has always been Upper Field First so you should use the templates created by Sony and not your modified template.

Yes, that's true.
[Ed Law] "I am also assuming I cannot burn a 29.97p DVD disc. "
That is also true. You cannot.
