DVD from Premiere CS6... Sorenson or others a benefit for quality?
on Feb 7, 2014 at 2:08:30 am

Need to create a DVD from an HD project... I understand that going from HD to SD for DVD creates some quality loss... is there a 3rd party software that would improve it(I've heard of Sorenson Squeeze, Cinema Craft SP3 etc but I have no experience with them and Googling hasn't helped much)

I'd like to use Encore for my menus etc... just looking for ideas to get the best quality DVD. Thanks for any suggestions...

There were reports in the early days of Adobe Media Encoder that it didn't encode to the DVD standard MPEG2 very well. Because of that we continued using Squeeze for DVD projects. At some point, we became unable to tell the difference between encodes from the two, and being that we can encode straight from the timeline to Adobe Media Encoder, that's our preferred method. If you have Premiere, then you have AME, so no extra cost is needed to purchase another encoding software platform. Sorenson had added Premiere compatibility to Squeeze, but we found it problematic, and Sorenson support, though sympathetic toward us, could only tell us that it should get better in a future release.

Ya, just use AME, select the DVD preset and tweak as needed.

You may want to read these 2 articles. At first the process will seem like a big hassle but after a couple of times it becomes easy. It works better than AME does when scaling HD to SD. You will get the pro results you are looking for.

And here's another link to Jeff Belune's site going through this process step by step.
