Hi all some one has asked me if i can take the movies from a training cd-rom and put them onto a dvd so they can watch them on tv, sounds like a good idea. so i said i would do it, no problem but its turning out to be a pain in the head, anyway the movies are 880 X 660 5fps using Sorenson Video 3 this is ok i can import them into FCP and render i have tried to set my sequence to be identical to the clip i.e. compressor used, fps etc so i wouldn't have to render but ive had no luck?
anyway the video i seem to be able to handle except it will probably take a day or so to render but the audio is 32 - bit floating point and i dont think FCP can handle that.
I have tried importing into dvd studio pro and exporting using compressor no joy
I think the viedo files are protected.
Anybody have any good ideas as to how i would do this?
Open in QT player and export to a format FCP can handle- say ProRes 422 at 720x480 with 24-bit stereo audio at 48Khz first. Then you'll be able to edit in FCP. Then export to MPEG-2 with Compressor and bring into DVDSP. Not going to be super pretty but then again it's coming from a finishing codec to begin with so you gotta be realistic.
