MPEG-2 export issue - can't go over 1088 x1088
on Jun 17, 2017 at 9:23:22 pm

I am trying to export 2K planetarium frames to MPEG-2 format but I can't export over 1088 x 1088 and can't convert the 2056x2056 mp4 to and mp2 in Encoder either, it defaults back to 1088.

Is there any way to get around this?

Thank you.

Why are you exporting to MPEG-2? What's your goal?

MPEG-2 is most often used to encode DVDs, which must comply with DVD standards, which are limited to SD resolution at only 640x480 or 720x480 in the NTSC world, or, 640x576 and 720x576 in the PAL world.

Thank you for your reply! Yes, I thought it was something like that because I saw MPG2-DVD and Bluray and the resolution constraints would make sense. I believe it is the format that it accepted by the Planetarium software, but perhaps there are other formats that are acceptable that I am unaware of.

However, I was asked to export MPG2 so I'm trying to find a workaround.

For now, I have exported H.264 MP4 then using a convertor to change the files into MP2... not sure if that's very effective or efficient.

I hope Adobe makes a stand alone batch rendering software... I guess Encoder is supposed to work like that.

Mpeg2 does not go beyond 1920x1080 (1088x1088).
Maybe you should convince the client to use a more common format which support higher and odd frame dimensions such as mp4.

You can batch convert with AME.
