I am new here, so thank you all in advance for the help. I have done some searching and found these forums to be incredibly helpful.
About my project: I am about to complete my final edit for a 23' shortfilm shot on the Red One system, and edited in FCP 6. I have never dealt with the output process before, and want to know what the best output form would be for DVD, which will be the festival submission format of choice.
I want to ensure that the amazing quality of the Red translates onto DVD.
Thank you for any help. If it helps, I plan on using compressor and DVDSP.
I would recommend creating a master of your film, using ProRes 4444 for instance, in the native resolution (2K, I'm guessing). That way you can easily create any kind of master necessary in the future. I generally make these master QuickTimes for my RED projects, and try to get HDCAM prints of them as well where applicable.
ps. Why aren't you making Blu-ray discs instead? ;-)
