Making an uncompressed DVD
on Sep 30, 2008 at 5:47:31 pm

Hello!

Could you give me an advice?

I have two Final Cut Studio projects, shooted using Mini HDV tapes of a JVC HD100E camcorder. Shooted at 720p.

I use DVD Studio Pro.

Once finished the editing, I need to burn a DVD for each video, downscaling to SD.

Each video lenght is <5 min.

So, I think that if a DVD can store two hours of SD video, and a video of mine is a 4 minutes video, I could make an "uncompressed" DVD!
This because I need the maximum quality, and since the project is already compressed once (the HDV minitape), if I make a DVD I compress it twice!

Even if a very low compression ratio, it loses quality a lot!

DVD Studio Pro hasn't any option like an "uncompressed DVD", or to reduce the compression to zero (like the Win Zip "zero compression - store" option...).

Could you give me any advice? Is there a software? a plug-in? Freeware or trial is better...

Thank you!

There is no such thing as an Uncompressed DVD. all DVDs use mpeg2 video. So if you want to be able to play the DVD in a set top player or DVD software nothing you can do differently.
