had a question about 1080 24p going to NTSC DVD. should i just render out a 720x480 widescreen 24p file for the DVD from Premiere? another size i've seen is 720x405, not sure why the 405?
or should i render the 1920x1080 24p file into MPEG2 out of AME or Premiere for the DVD using a preset?
i'm building the DVD in DVD Studio Pro and the menu in Photoshop at 720x480 widescreen (D1/DV NTSC 1.21).
MPEG2-DVD preset is the best option. (But do change the scaling over to Scale to Fill in the top left window.)
i've seen in AME the presets, that's probably what i will use. is that preset 720x480 or does it export at 720x405? the only reason i ask is on this project i received some footage that was 720x405 with letterbox, that was probably intentional to use the black letterbox...do you have an opinion on that?
I've never seen 405. It's pretty oddball for video.
