Caspar Strackerendering out large files in mpeg-2

Dear consortium of fantastic AE life savers -

a question re: Mpeg-2 and size.
I need to render out a giant 3200 x 1800 sequence in mepg-2 and noticed that there is a limit in the Media Encoder, I believe 1920 (full HD).
Is there any way to bypass that?

To my biggest surprise I now realized that CS5 has the mpeg-2 already natively integrated in AE although not sure if thats the same mpeg-2 as inMedia Encoder (for sure I am not talking DVD mpeg-2 here)
Is are both the same, PC-happy mpeg-2 that plays on all PCs? (I am a Mac btw no way to test)

However, also in AE no chance to render out 3200 x 1800.

Any other software that support this giant size?


Much thanks, as always,


Caspar

I'm not sure that this size will be possible, but I've used Episode 5 (not 6) and ffmpeg to encode non-standard MPEG-2 in the past.

But what will the playback device be? Are you sure that you need to deliver a single file? Large displays like this are frequently pre-split -- and this one looks like a 4x3 array of 800x600 displays.

Good luck. I'd think that delivering pre-split files for the media servers would be more reliable, but if you get this working, please let me know -- I'd love to hear about your workflow. Thanks!
