I'm wondering what's a great encoder to use for exporting my timeline
out of Premiere to take to a DVD Authoring program? I'm currently
using the standard Adobe MPEG Encoder from Premiere at the bitrate
suggested by the videohelp website, but after burning my DVD from the
DVD authoring program "DVD Lab" the quality of the video is nasty when watching in on a larger T.V. screen than my computer monitor.
The original footage was imported from mini dv tapes.
Well I'm at work right now so off the top of my head it was encoded and saved to my desktop from Premiere. Don't know if it was saved as an Mpeg-1 or 2. Didn't see that option from the Adobe Mpeg Encoder window.
The resolution was set to 720x480
The bitrate was 7183 for 1hr, 22mins and 17seconds
