A problem we have encountered recently is when we acquire many hours of raw presentation and have the need to put them on a standard definition DVD, the render times are long, the sequence is duplicated, settings are changed to NTSC 4x3, lower, mpeg4. This setting change takes another 2 hours...then the export takes two hours and the burn another 1 hour...In total 1-2 hours of raw footage can take nearly 6 hours to put on DVD.

IS THERE A BETTER WAY TO ACCOMPLISH THIS?

[Richard Rodriguez] "NTSC 4x3, lower, mpeg4"
What means that "mpg4"?
Are you making an .mpg4 master then making a DVD from there/

Yes.

Use compressor straight from your XDCAM timeline. Apply the setting that is closest to your running time.

Don't duplicate the sequence.

Don't change the sequence to NTSC.

Don't change the compressor to MPEG4.

Don't change the field order to lower.

Your burns also shouldn't be taking an hour. What speed media are you burning?
