Transcode Question
on Apr 9, 2005 at 3:02:00 pm


It would appear, that in order to distribute a Matrox RT.X10/PP_1.5 project in two different formats (DVD or tape), that two seperate projects need to be saved with different effect attributes.

Late last year I completed a documentary which was distributed on tape for broadcast. Everything looked fine and levels were good.

I later exported the project as an AVI and transcoded using the Encore default (automatic) setting. By appearance alone, the luminance level on DVD playback was too hot. The audio was observed to be hot by 6dB.

I've worked on the audio, and I can set new video levels, however, in each case, the adjustments are only estimates.

It is extremely time consuming (and inefficient) to go back into the project and re-tweek levels (both video and audio) for DVD distribution.

What I would like to know is -

Am I doing something wrong in the edit/transcode process?

Is there something wrong with my Matrox hardware?

Is this an issue with PP_1.5, or Encore?

Note: I've also tried Ligos MPEG2-DVD Encoder and Adobe Media Encoder MPEG2-DVD. I still observed increased luminance and audio gain(+6dB).
