Hey guys,


I need help downscaling my HD film for DVD. This is for a professional release so quality is key. Everything was edited in CS6.


I found a tutorial online on how to maximize for DVD using various steps but I fear it may be outdated. Here it is if you'd like to know what I'm referring to:


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    CS6 does a much better job than CS4 at scaling down HD video for SD.  For progressive HD video, I'm happy with CS6's output.  For interlaced HD video, the hd2sd avisynth/virtualdub process is still better, IMHO.

    I get good results with hd2sd. If you need to change the frame rate as well, I would always go for a Alchemist motion compensated hardware conversion.

    Or use a frameserver with a 3rd party encoder like TMPGenc.
