Start with the MPEG2-DVD High Quality preset, and you can fiddle
with those settings to get the optimum quality vs. filesize for import
to Encore and burn to DVD.
I go with option 2 myself with very good results.
I exported the project using the MPEG2-DVD settings, but now Encore seems to ne unable to import the M2V file. Suggestions?
File > Import As > Timeline (Shift+Ctrl+T)
Navigate to your .m2v and associated .wav file, select both, hit Open
What exactly is the issue?
i just finished burning an iso image from encore onto a dvd
the original footage was stills and 60i 1920x1080 avchd from a canon hfs20 vixia
i exported directly from premiere through ame using mpeg-dvd highest quality widescreen 24p
(and pcm audio (i believe))
encore did transcode the audio (now that i remember (if i am remembering correctly))
but encore did NOT have to retranscode the video which made me super happy
the result is solid images no wigglies, no artifacts, no jaggies, no headaches, no complaints...
the few parents that got a sneekpeek of the baseball dvd were soooooooooooo amazed i blushed
good job PPRO, AME, ENCORE 5.03, good job...
