Adobe prem pro to DVD

kinger7, May 26, 9:10pm
Just having a quality issue. The files have been rendered in HD but when I change the render settings to mpegDVD it rapes the quality something chronic . To be able to burn onto a DVD the video file has to be encoded to do so. Any suggestions on what programs to use as im not happy with PR .

Yes, DVD quality is terrible, 720x576 resolution. You could play around with the bitrate settings but generally you'll be losing a lot of quality no matter what.

A DVD can store formats better than standard DVD resolution. Depends what you want to play it on though.

just a standard DVD player to be on the safe side. Its for a group of dance students to keep as a memento from a recent trip. Its all been uploaded to youtube but I just think its a nice thing to also have tucked away

True, not all DVD players will support it though.

I considered buying a blu-ray burner because of the limitations of DVD, briefly, before realising that using a USB stick would be much faster, easier, and wouldn't need any transcoding so long as the TV or player supported the format.

So my advice is, buy a bunch of 4GB USB sticks and copy the best quality version of the video onto a stick for each student.

edit: a USB stick also allow you to include any other files, such as the newsletters, group photo's, newspaper clippings.

Sure, I'm onto my 3rd one like that. You can get customised USB sticks too.
