settings for SD DVD output

May 29, 2012 9:06 AM

Hi

 

Is there any advantage in editing in 1080 x 50 if final product will be on SD DVD?

 

Thanks

 

Norman

    I edit AVCHD and let Premiere Pro "down-rez" to DV AVI to create a DVD

     

    You should always edit in the "native" format for the best quality... then export to the format needed for your destination

    The disadvantage of doing so is that the media needs to be scaled.  That's best avoided whenever possible.

     

    If you will never need an HD version, I say shoot in SD.

    what sequence setting to use in premiere.

     

    Not sure about that.  I always take care to have all footage match specs (or at least frame rates).

    I would set it to 1080 25.

    Best setting for export is mpeg2-dvd high qualty, you can tweak the settings a bit.

    If you are on CS5.5 do not use DL it messes with the fields; export from Premiere.

    With CS6 you can use DL and set it to auto.
