DVD share gives me no choice - picks 720P for HD project
on Dec 13, 2017 at 1:57:00 pm

I have an hour long HD project and am ready to burn a DVD master.

When I do a DVD share it is indicating it will be at 720 with no option to change it that I can see.

Anyone have an insight into this?

Deadline is today and I'm concerned.

THX

DVDs are standard definition only, no such thing as HD for a proper DVD encode.

Thanks, Noah.
So to be sure, a 1920 x 1080 project will always be downsized to 720x480, correct?

Are all hollywood movies that are sold as a DVD, not blu-ray, the same resolution, 720 x480?

Thanks!

Thanks, Noah.
Now its asking me for dual layer DVD media.

I have already made a dozen and it never asked for this!

What?

If it demands dual-layer, your run time / file size/ bit rate is making file likely longer than 2 hours.


You can make an HD program on DVD-R discs, but not every set-top or built-in DVD player will recognize an MPEG4 or h.264 file burned that way. Standard def mpeg-2 DVD video is 720 and that's all, if you want full compatibility.

Yeah pretty much no DVD player will play those- desktop DVD players kinda sorta but at that point just share on a Flash drive. If you want to make a DVD- make a DVD. 720x480 is it (assuming NTSC of course).
