Export settings for DVD (big file)
on Feb 2, 2012 at 10:53:12 pm

Hi,

For burning a large file (HDV50i, 16:9, 70 minutes) on to a DVD, what export settings should I give?
I have a double layered DVD (8,5G) but my file was 14,5G after exporting.
Now I set it to MPEG4 but checking out forums I will need a special converting program for it.
Is this true or should exporting from FCP be fine?
Thanks!
Sara

Are you trying to make an standard DVD?
5f so, use the 90 minutes High Quality DVD preset in Compressor.
DVDs do not supports MP4, only MPEG-2.
If you are trying to make a non standard DVD with HD contents, in Compressor you have "H264 for DVDSTP" presets. Those are supposed for one layer disks, so you can increase the data rate for video, but do not double it.

I never worked with compressor before (shame on me..).
I've now set it (in compressor) at MPEG-2 90 minutes. I've dragged the MPEG4 file into it and it
is going to take 4 hours. Is that because it has to compress MPEG4?

Is it better (and quicker) to drag the full MPEG2 file (14,5) into it?
settings: 1280x720
lineair PCM MPEG-2 video
quicktime movie

thanks!

No Sara.
Forget about the Mp4 that you have done and about MPEG-2.
Convert your HDV movie.
In Compressor, look in the folder DVD (10 groups) > HD DVD H264 60 minutes.
That preset are for single layer DVDs, so you can rise the data rate.
Set Average data-rate: 15Mbps.
Keep the same Max data rate.
Then use the Dolby preset for the audio.
You have to import the H264 and the AAC audio resultant to DVDSTP to author the DVD.

4 or 5 hours for a multipass compression of a 70 minutes film, depending of the computer you are using, is not a crazy time.

Thank you Rafael, This is very helpful. I am preparing a 105 min file with some extras to DVD and Blu Ray. Would the same specs you mentioned apply for the DVD? Any ideas on Blu Ray prep using compressor (IO file)?

Thank you!!
