Encore - CS6 vs Older Version (2006 Copy)  Encoding Quality Difference?

 

I have an 2006 Copy of Encore for SD DVD's, will a new version have better quality encoding? Thank You

    2006?  Is that CS2 or 3? 

     

    Whatever, yes, the version of AME which comes with Premiere/Encore in CS6 gives much improved rersults for DVD, particularly if you have to downscale from HD/HDV.

    Too many variable for someone to "globally" say what will work for your DVD... or not

     

    Video with a lot of movement (a sporting event, for example) requires a higher bit rate than a video of someone standing still to give a speech

     

    The only way for you to know is to do as you say... run your own test

    They both use the MainConcept encoder, so it's likely you won't be able to see much difference.

     

    For a real improvement, go the freeware route.
