HDV workflow in Encore CS3
on May 20, 2008 at 7:48:55 am

Hi,

I am having the following difficulties when finishing an HDV project in Encore CS3. I have my 1080i/50 HDV material in an Avid Media Composer exported to a HDV stream (1440x1080) since using QT references don't work because of long GOP.

Importing this file in Encore CS3 will work, although it's not recognized as a supported file format when importing.

I want to make a SD DVD, what is the best way to make a good downscale? Should I start transcoding in Avid to make a QT reference or is it possible to transcode in Encore directly from source material.

By the way, I am not looking for a solution which uses an external DVD recorder, since the DVD authoring should be more complex. (menu's etc.)

Hopefully someone has a good solution,

thanks in advance

Daniel

I found a way that works for me but takes a lot of transcoding time. The HDV captured material in an HDV project can be transcoded to DNxHD MXF material, transcoding in Avid goed quite fast and now it is ready to be exported as a QT reference into Encore, use a good transcode setting and you're ready to go/wait, cause Encore takes a lot of time transcoding this material.
