DVD Burning Problem, tried doing what it says on here but no luck
on Sep 10, 2012 at 6:57:40 pm

Hi I have a problem and I was going to outsouce getting my DVD's done but there is no where in my area so I need to try and work it out myself but it is confusing me, can anyone help.



I have made a wedding movie for a friend. I filmed on a Sony V1E and a Sony CX250. I log and transfered the CX250 footage and log and captured the V1E footage. It all comes in as Apple Proress 422 1440x1080. Here is my workflow:



Edit in prores 1440x1080

Export using quicktime self contained

End up with a quicktime file of 56gb

Open with Compressor and compress using DVD best 90mins (film is 60mins long)

Then dop the 2 compressed files into DVDSP

Build and Burn



I had a problem before with the DVD not playing on bluray players so I researched and it told me to delete the TS audio and video files made while burning before I try and burn a second one so I did this and that worked. But this time round none of the DVD's are working properly. My friend is trying to watch them on a playstation or on her PC and all 3 DVD's I burned are crashing or juttering at some point.



WHAT AM I DOING WRONG.... :-( it's driving me insane.



Also for now she wants it as a file on a USB in as good a quality as I can get to her. How do I get my 56GB file onto a USB for her, do I have to use MPEGSTREAMCLIP to make a MP4 or something. Is there anyway I can make the file smaller to put onto USB but keep the HD quality or do I have to change it to SD?



Any help would be much appreciated.



Thank you so much

Michelle

Or something. You can get fairly reasonable results using the default "AppleTV" setting in Compressor -- if you are clever with the bitrate, you can get away with around a 2GB file, albeit at 1280x720, which is still technically HD. It will be an H264-codec file, and should still look pretty good. It will look fantastic on a small screen like an iPhone or iPad.

I rarely use DVDSP anymore, (doesn't support BluRay), but have always made m2v and ac3 files before authoring DVDs -- can't bring myself to trust DVDSP to do it right since very few other Apple-original software seems to be able to accomplish these tasks correctly.

Thanks Joseph. Yea I compress everything in compressor first. The smaller file I have is 16gb and I have used compressor using the H.264 preset and that has created a 4gb file which is much better, but the bigger project is 56gb so that will still be quite large I guess. She wants the footage in the best quality possible for me to send her on a USB so she can always have it and make DVD's and things in the future and upload it to youtube and places as well.

I figured it would just be a master copy of thier wedding on a USB for them, but 56 gb is way too large to send lol
