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.
Just did a 7 mbps (CBR) test, came out AMAZING!
Original Video :SD Format - SD DVD
I am putting about 90 minutes on one (single layer disc) so there is no way that I can use such a high bit rate.
My new question is "Would a 5 mbps (CRB) video on the newer software look better? I will run a test soon.
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
I just want to know if the newer software will produce a BETTER quality video with the SAME Bitrate
