From Final Cut Pro to hardware DVD, which system?
on Jun 20, 2005 at 5:15:57 am

I want to make DVD dailies from HD Masters (HDcam 23.98psf) digitized into Final Cut Pro Studio 5 using the Kona 2. DVD studio would take forever to make a DVD at this resolution, is there a hardware solution? I'm interested in the best look, least compression, 50 minutes of video per DVD. i've seen some hardware solutions (PCI Card) at NAB for about 6 thousand dollars but can't remember who the company was...

thanks, Keith

That was interesting, thanks, but it didn't mention anything about taking from the Final Cut timeline to make the DVD, it seems I'd have to have a separate system and play back the timeline out through the Kona card and into the Optibase card on the other system, plus it seems that it would make HD DVDs, something unplayable on most DVD players, so I'm told....

thanks, Keith

can you playback the timeline in realtime from fcp?

if so, a panasonic set top recorder could be the best
option. Digital Dailies is something this box can do
easily. http://www.panasonic.com

I'm not satisfied with the look with from that set top recorder, I was hoping for a more robust option. thanks, Keith

Are you looking to burn HD-DVDs? If so you can do that with DVDSP 4 but it will only play back on a G5. Hi Def DVD is still very much a thing of the future at this point - at least from a users stand point.

This one is as robust as it gets: Pioneer PRV-LX1. :-)

have you tried the panasonic recorders?

They are quite robust and industrial strength.

Picture quality is among the best out there
for realtime encoding on a set top.

I have over 1,000 hrs on my laser diode
and have not had one hickup. Some discs
were 4hrs long.

It doesn't really get any more robust than that lol. :)

For digital dailies this is ideal.
