outputting a LONG sequence to DVD
on Jun 16, 2015 at 8:39:19 pm

Just shot a Bar Mitzvah and now have a 150-minute sequence.

The client would like a DVD and I've never output something this big.

Can you give some pointers about how I should approach this?

I'm assuming that I should output in sections... then what?

I used to use Compressor and then DVD Studio Pro when I was in Final Cut...

What's the best workflow for adobe?

Producing a 150 minute single layer DVD will require a data rate so low that your video's quality will be horrendous.

I see your options as this...

1 - Produce to a dual layer DVD, assuming that you have a capable burner.

2 - Split the affair up into two single layer DVD's.

Use this calculator to determine your optimal settings for encoding to MPEG-DVD in Adobe Media Encoder.

Once you've encoded, author the DVD in Adobe Encore CS6. If you do not have it, here are instructions on how to obtain it...

Since you've used DVD Studio Pro, the learning curve to Encore should be an easy one.

You can also export from Premiere to an intermediate file to import into Encore, which can then encode to DVD specs applying what it determines are the best settings for your chosen project.

I had suspected that I would be making two DVDs... It's not really a problem.
