Apple Pro Res 444 to DVDSP
on Feb 12, 2010 at 10:20:05 pm

I've embraced Apple ProRes 444 and have started using it as a codec for everything from AE renders to masters before going to DVD.

Am I doing my DVD encodes a disservice rather than sticking with the animation codec or an uncompressed .mov. I shoot on an EX1 and edit in FCP finish in color and master DVD's in DVDSP.

I use Rick Young's method of downressing in FCP except that I use 444 instead of 422.

What do you guys think? Should I stick with an uncompressed file before going to DVDSP.

Nope you're fine- I use ProRes HQ for all my DVD master sources and they look as good as can be.
