HD to SD DVD
on Apr 7, 2008 at 9:35:49 pm

Hi folks,

I'd like to double check on the workflow to get the best quality from HD
onto a SD DVD. It’s a 15 min piece shot in DVCPROHD 1080i60.
Here's what I'm doing:

Option1) FCP timeline DVCPROHD 1080i60 - export to Apple ProRes 422 HQ SD
720x480 16x9 (nothing else checked) – send to Compressor DVD Best Q 90min
16x9 Preset –author in DVD Studio Pro.

Option2) Instead of going to ProRes 422 HQ – export as self contained QT
with current settings – everything else the same.

I do not have the ideal (high end) hardware to compare final DVD’s – however
option 1 seems to be the better i.e cleaner & smoother result.

Better? suggestion

Thanks
Ralf
