im a proffessional video editor, mostly documentaries. i work on premiere, avid, incite and final cut pro.
One of my customers needs all movies (broadcast quality) burned on D.V.D.
Everything concerning dvd is very new to me.
ive been doing very serious research over the net.
what i dont quite understand is: what would the differrence be between exporting my timeline from avi to mpeg 2 via avid or premiere than exporting avi via canopus procoder or any other decoder.
which is more reliable,faster,better quality?
please give me all the info possible concerning this matter as i really dont see why i shouldnt just convert media VIA one of the proffessional editing prog I work with
If quality output is what you desire, then Procoder will do the best mpeg encoding of the options you listed (IMO). It's reasonably fast, and can work directly off of Premiere's timeline. All mpeg encoders are not 'created equal', and that's why I wouldn't just use the default option within Premiere. I have used several software based mpeg encoders (TMPGEnc, MainConcept, CCE, Ligos, Procoder to name a few), and the best (again IMO) of the lot was/is Procoder.
