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...
