720p 16x9 dvd
on Jul 26, 2007 at 6:09:12 pm

i've been looking around the this forum a little bit but have yet to find if it is possible or overkill to create a 720p movie and then burn to a standard DVD.

i believe it is so im setting up my AE doc as NTSC D1 widescreen at 720x486. does this sound correct?

Nope- all DVD's are 720x480 NTSC. For a 720p disc you need Blu-Ray or HD-DVD.

I recently ran into the problem of taking a 1920 by 1080 piece of footage and creating a DVD 5. I simply imported the footage into AE (720 by 480 comp) and resized to fit allowing for some small vertical loss. Then I rendered DVD compatible files using Adobe media encoder 16 by 9 (I used 5.5 mbps 2 pass VBR Q4) and that was it.

Did I miss something? The client is happy, the footage looks better than expected and it took less time than I thought it would.

Hi Noah;

My name is Dan and I have been noticing that in this forum we get a great deal of questions about ripping DVD's. Instead of always having to ask whether they are trying to rip copy-protected DVD's why not instead set up a header at the beginning of the forum like the one used in AE for standard questions. Then if they can't find what they are looking for there then they are simply DVD pirates anyways.
We should also understand that many of the tools the pirates use have valid uses in professional settings as well plus they are generally free.

If this idea interests you then contact me and i would be more than willing to take charge of creating such a file or assisting at the very least. We can discuss my qualifications off-forum.

Dan
