Newbie needs advice on rendering for DVD
on Jun 25, 2005 at 3:19:09 am

I'm new to creating DVD's so bear with me...
I have my movie sequence (my animation reel) all set up to render out to put
onto DVD's. However I cannot figure out what QT compression to use.

I am rendering from Final Cut Express.

I've tried "Export/Quicktime Movie" with Self Contained on, as Final Cut Help suggests
to render for DVD, but end up with really bad quality.

I have also tried "Export/using Quicktime Conversion" and under options
tried 'Video' compression and also 'Sorensen 3' both at the highest setting but still really bad.

My source clips in the timeline are all excellent high quality QT movies.

The timeline is only 4 minutes in length so I am assuming it can't be any size issue.
All my 3 attempts, (the rendered compressed QT movies) are only 800 - 900 mgs each.
(I'm thinking that my movie can be up to 4 gigs and still fit onto the DVD?)

I have also tried 'None' compression but it won't render- I keep getting a "General Error", whatever that is!

I am planning on a very simple load and play DVD using "iDVD" on my Mac.

Can anyone help me with how to get the best quality DVD using Final Cut Express and iDVD?

Thanks very much for any and all thoughts.

Render to 720x480 at DV, Animation or None compression settings.
