Burning Flash movie to DVD

Mar 2, 2013 8:08 AM

Hi

I am creating a flash animation to be projected. I have to burn in onto a dvd. I have tried converting the .mov file that flash exports, and flv to mpeg. The preview looks fine, but every time the dvd quality is terrible. I have tried HD, h. 264, NTSC. I have also tried converting a .swf to mpeg with no luck.

I am using flash CS5.

Please help.

 

I was wondering if I try to burn the html file that flash creates to DVD, would that work? Or should I try exporting the image sequence and put it back together in another program such as Final Cut or imovie? Should I use something other than Encore to convert the files?

    What resolution is the original animation?  What frame rate?

    Terrible played back on a DVD player to a TV or ...?

     

    You can't have 15fps on a DVD.

    Does this have to be a DVD "Movie" or can you write a data disk that may be run from a computer to the projector?

    In that case, you are limited to what a DVD movie will allow... and your source material is not a good fit

    1296x1728 15fps

     

    That's just never going to look as good on DVD.

     

    Recreate the animation using DVD standards: 720 x 480 using the Widescreen Pixel Aspect Ratio (1.2) at 23.976 fps.

    It's strange that a dvd would be so problematic, especially since it is not a long movie, it has no complicated video or images.

    See Jim's suggestion.

     

    DVD is TV, not computer; the specs that determine how DVDs behave on DVD players are very exacting. But primarily, you are no longer creating flash for computer, but for TV/DVD. Follow those rules and you'll get what you are after.
