    Premiere 12 Publishing questions

    AlanKL

      1. What's the best output selection to put a video on a DVD to playback on my HDTV through my DVD player? 

      2. Do I select 1080i or 1080p?

      3. What size should I make my still pictures that will be included?

      4. I plan to purchase an UHDTV.  How does that work in with Premiere 12?  Should I pre-plan my editing to make my stills for UHD even though I'll be also using it on standard HDTV?

       

      Thanks  Alan

          You do not have much choice.

           

          The regular DVD Player will playback DVD-VIDEO standard or widescreen on a DVD disc. Either way the resolution is

          NTSC 720 x 480 and PAL 720 x 576. The difference between the standard and widescreen is that the widescreen has

          a 16:9 flag that stretches the video for display after encoding (NTSC to 856 x 480; PAL 1056 x 576). Consequently, there is no choice for 1080i

          or 1080p.

           

          On the other hand, if you are thinking AVCHD format on DVD disc, then there are presets for higher resolution. But, the catch here is that

          AVCHD format on DVD disc is not supported by the regular DVD Player.

           

          What type of DVD Player is involved here and what are its specifications with regard to playback AVCHD format on DVD disc?

           

          There is no 4K burn to disc in Premiere Elements.

           

          Please clarify.

           

          Thank you.

            I believe both units play back dvd and blu-ray.  It's working on both.  I  set AVCHD and I believe 1080I.  The dvd also works on my Play Station 3.

              If you have the player support then go with what give you the best quality...For AVCHD format on DVD disc, I would probably start at 1920 x 1080p23.976 and then look at 1920 x 1080i29.97. I would consider them as your only two choices. Do not bother with any preset which depends of 16:9 flag to get to 1920 x 1080.

               

              Excerpt from my Premiere Elements 12 First Look

                My B-R/ DVD player  accepts the following:

                 

                MPEG-1 Video/PS

                MPEG-2 Video/PS,

                TS

                in the following extebnsions “.mpg,” “.mpeg,”

                “.m2ts,” “.mts”



                MPEG-4 AVC

                in the following extensions “.mkv,” “.mp4,”

                “.m4v,” “.m2ts,”

                “.mts”



                WMV9 in the following extensions

                “.wmv,” “.asf”



                AVCHD

                *2 (from video recorders)


                Xvid

                “.avi”


                Would MPEg4 be better than AVCHD?



                I tried both and cannot tell which is better.

                H.264 1440 x 1080p NTSC Dolby NEW

                H.264 1920 x 1080i NTSC Dolby

                 

                1. Which of the two are better?  i or p?

                 

                2. Is it better to publish directly to the DVD or hard drive and then copy to DVD?  I had trouble in past with earlier additions when I burned directly to the DVD.

                 

                3.On still pictures, I'm creating files that are 2200 high so I can use later when 4k publishing becomes available for UHDTV's.  IS the larger size OK for publishing to the current 1080?  If not, what size is the best?

                  Alan

                   

                  You want to keep away from 1440 x 1080 HD anamorphic 16:9 because it requires a 16:9 flag to stretch it to 1920 x 1080 for display after encoding.

                  When you use the 1920 x 1080 16:9, you avoid the dependency of the player to recognize a 16:9 flag. 1920 x 1080 is 16:9. You do not need a 16:9 flag.

                  So, please consider for comparison

                  H.264 1920 x 1080i NTSC Dolby - that is going to be at 29.97 interlaced frames per second

                  H.264 1920 x 1080p NTSC Dolby - that is going to be at 23.976 progressive frames per second (my first choice)

                  if there is no problem with the frame rates.

                   

                  What kind of problems did you have with the direct burn to DVD within Premiere Elements - burner not recognized, media not recognized, or you felt that the quality was just not there?

                   

                  I would keep the photos to 2200 x 1238 16:9 in accord with what you have already for the here and now. One 4K size is 3840 x 2160. You are going to have to let your computer resources limit what you can and cannot do. What computer operating system do you have? I have been assuming Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit. If that is correct, then you have in 12 a 64 bit application running in a 64 bit system with all the extra computer resources that go along with that.

                   

                  In reviewing your thread, I think I somehow skipped my favorite questions

                  a. What are the properties of your source media - 1080p30? What is your project preset?

                  b. What computer operating system?

                  c. How much free hard drive space?

                   

                  And, now...besides the burn to disc considerations, are you thinking about exporting your Timeline content to a file that you can put on a memory card or USB flash drive for play back with your player(s)?

                   

                  More later.

                    3.4GHz Intel i7 processor, Windows 8 111gb free on C and 1.81TB of 1.81 TB free on data drive D .  I also have 24gb memory and 256 SSD.  Should I be saving my files to a particular drive?  Right now everything is saved in Pictures folder including the video so the PREL is in the same folder as the images and video for when I archive. (Can the images be in a separate folder than PREL but all are in the same folder in Pictures.

                     

                    I just tried a test.  It played using:

                    Preset at NTSC AVCHD Full HD 1080 30

                    1. Is this Preset the best to use?


                    2. The output to the DVD I tried was 1920 x 1080p NTSC Dolby and it looked OK.

                    Is this Output selection the best to use?

                     

                    3.(I'm using the same camera for still and videos.   The video is mostly a slide show of the photo stills. The videos are in 720 (AVI). Only short clips. The stills are 2933 x 2200 (I reduced them from a larger size).  4:3.  I'm using these so later if I want to create for UHDTV, I'll be ready. 

                    3. Is 2933 x 2200 OK to use for the current 1080?

                      And the problem I had with direct burn a few years ago with version 8, is that it would fail for some reason.  That could have been because I was working then with a much slower processor with a lot less memory.  The creation process would take half the night.  Since I do many burns until I get all the changes done, I burn on an DVD-RW and then copy the final to a DVD-R at the end.  SO what do you think?  Would I be better off burning first to C drive (or D drive) and then burning the DVD from there?

                        In PRE 13, they have introduced Burn to ISO image. And I assume that there are free players that could play these ISO images. This would save you some disks.

                          With reference to your post number 8....

                           

                          Yes, there are "free" ISO players out there, but read carefully. Many of the free ISO players are free for all except Blu-ray ISO Image. In that case, I guess you live with the watermark on the Blu-ray ISO Image playback using the free software or buy the licensed version of the computer program to get it all. In the quick Google search I did find one that claimed to be completely free.

                           

                          Just be careful of your choices when downloading these free software for the computer. In recent times, the free software more and more has been accompanied by unwanted and nuisance software that messes up the computer, especially the browsers.

                           

                          Please remind me, do your players attached to your TV support playback of DVD ISO Image, AVCHD DVD ISO Image, and Blu-ray ISO Image?

                            For now I would go with burn to disc unless there was some compelling reason not to do that. If you have the computer resources and you are not

                            pushing the limits on the disc capacity so that the program is lowering the bitrate rate to make the fit, you should do fine. Then make copies of the disc if needed. You could always rip/copy the VIDEO_TS or BDMV from the disc afterward if necessary.

                             

                            If you are thinking in terms of bonus backup products, then you need to decide if the Premiere Elements products, such as BDMV or VIDEO_TS,

                            or ISO Image, would be best served with a 3rd party software to take them to a format on disc in the disc file system.

                             

                            Go with what works for you.

                                1. You set the project preset to match the properties of your source media. If you have 1080p source, then you do not use a 1080i project preset

                                (NTSC AVCHD Full HD 1080i30). You use NTSC DSLR 1080p DSLR 1080p30.

                                 

                                In "3", you say the video is mostly a slideshow of photo stills. The videos are 720 (AVI). The stills are 2933 x 2200 4:3.

                                This sends up flares.

                                 

                                a. What is this 720 (AVI)? Is this video SD 720 x 480 4:3 or 16:9 @ 29.97 interlaced frames per second or 1280 x 720 16:9 @ 29.97 progressive frames per second?

                                 

                                b. Are the stills (2933 x 2200) already in the video (slideshow) or are you preparing to incorporate them in the Premiere Elements project along with this 720 (AVI) video?

                                This needs to be answered before all else. So, please do not get distracted by anything in posts 7 - 11. ISO Images and choices of AVCHD presets are secondary to this basic issue of setting up the project from start to finish.

                                 

                                You can get into serious problems with mismatches between aspect ratio of project preset and export presets.

                                  In answer to your questions, I'm preparing to start a new project.  I am mainly producing a slide show for my HDTV which will incorporate some movies.  I'll be including menus at the beginning of the show. 

                                  The original pictures are jpegs 4032 x 3024 4:3.  The few video clips I will include are AVI 1280 x 720 30 fps HD 16:9.    Of course, I want to use the full 1080 height for my HDTV for the still pictures even though the width will have black bars on each side since the stills are 4:3.  The AVI's will fit the full HDTV screen because they're 16:9.

                                   

                                  So what settings should I use?

                                    Import your 1280 x 720p30 (16:9), import your 2933 x 2200 4:3 if you do not mind the black borders. If you do not want stills with black borders, then crop and resize the stills (to 1920 x 1080) before import.

                                    The setup described above is done to favor the photos and to get them as sharp as possible in the end product. Because you

                                    will be using Edit Menu/Preferences/General with Default Scale to Frame Size selected, both video and stills will preset in a 1920 x 1080

                                    frame. The stills will have black borders if they are left at 4:3 in this 16:9 project. Since the video is 16:9, it should fill this 1920 x 1080 frame with the Default Scale to Frame Size in effect. I am not projecting any pixelation going from 1280 x 720 to 1920 x 1080 under the conditions described.

                                      That worked great!  Thanks so much.  Two side questions. 

                                       

                                      1.  Do you get better rendition if you reduce 16:9 to 1920 x 1080 for stills or can I load in the full resolution captured by the camera?

                                       

                                      2. There's a Render button.  I tried it and didn't use it and I couldn't see the difference.  What should I do?

                                       

                                      Thanks again.  You've been very helpful.  Alan

                                        Thanks for the follow up with the good news that all is working well.

                                         

                                        No matter how high the resolution of the photos that you import into the project, the size with be forced to the standard of the export, in this case, 1920 x 1080.

                                        Importing the high resolution photos direct from the camera is not really going to get you a better end product and you run the risk of stressing out/slowing down/crashing the project somewhere along the line, during editing and/or exporting. How many photos, how high their resolution, and computer resources are going to define just how much you can get away with without issues.

                                         

                                        The pixel dimensions themselves were suggested for that reason. The 16:9 rather than 4:3 aspect ratio was suggested so that you would not have black borders for your photos.

                                         

                                        The Render button (or pressing the Enter key of the computer main keyboard) will do nothing for you if you do not have an orange line over the Timeline content. That orange line is the program telling you that you are not getting the best possible preview viewing your video in the Edit area monitor. That is a window of

                                        opportunity to catch a problem sooner than later. If you see no colored line or a green line, that is indication that you are seeing the best possible preview in that edit area. You do not have to render the Timeline content in order to move forward in the project. Render is just a preview matter.

                                         

                                        Should you do it? Yes and No...you do not have to...but...it is your opportunity to catch a problem sooner than later, and it is particularly useful in evaluating titles, effects, transitions, and non native formats. If you do not render there (and orange line present) and everything looks good in Edit, that does guarantee a trouble free end product. The preview would have probably given you more confidence. But as I said Yes and No.

                                         

                                        Best wishes. All sounding very good. Great job.

                                          I'm getting errors on burning to disk.  It worked when I had maybe 8 images with Disk Menus.  But when I loaded up about 250 still pictures 1920x1080 (no video yet), it failed when it got to the burn.  It would sit on 1% and then after a long while would jump to 98% and indicate fail.  Reasons?

                                           

                                          So I burned it to the hard drive and that appeared to work.  How to I copy that to a DVD-RW so it will work?  Do O just burn the BDMV folder right to the DVD?

                                              Resources OK.  It Publishes to DVD (8x) but won't burn to DVD-RW. 

                                               

                                              I burned to hard disk.  That worked.  (That's fast!)   I then copied the BDMV folder to the DVD but that woudn't play on the HDTV.

                                               

                                              1. Do I need to open the BDMV folder and select all the files and burn all the individual files?

                                               

                                              2. I also tried Publishing to Wed TV on my computer including Menus.  Web TV worked with both IE and Firefox.   However, the file is in 1280 x 720.  Is there any way to create  a higher resolution including menus on my computer using one of the other output formats?

                                                You need to take that BDMV Folder from the saved folder and take it to your DVD disc using for example ImgBurn. The BDMV needs to be placed on a disc with the correct disc file system (in this case UDF 2.05). The resulting AVCHD DVD will not play back on a regular DVD player. You need a Blu-ray player or special multi media player whose specifications included AVCHD DVD playback. Not all support that playback.

                                                 

                                                In some instance, it is easier to produce these formats than it is to find a player for them. The above will allow you a product with menus included.

                                                 

                                                If you want to rip/copy the video file from the BDMV Folder, open the BDMV Folder, go to the STREAM Folder, and copy the video file 00000.m2ts.

                                                You do not want 00001.m2ts and 00002.m2ts. They will be files for the menus (if you used a menu) which you cannot use. I am not sure if you can put

                                                that 00000.m2ts on a USB Flash Drive or memory card and play it back using PS3 or a standalone Blu-ray player or one of the special multi media players.

                                                 

                                                The BDMV is going to give you a 1920 x 1080 display product.

                                                 

                                                If you do not care about menus, then you can export your Timeline to a file format compatible with your players. Transfer the export to a USB Flash Drive or memory card. But, it all goes back to the specifications of the player.

                                                 

                                                I do not understand - how did you get a 1280 x 720 file with menus from Premiere Elements? What is WED TV?

                                                  I meant Web TV.  I went to Publishing, selected Web TV, then HD NTSC.  I got a file created on my computer's hard drive. It included the menus.  The images were 1280 x 720.  I could run it using Internet Explorer and Firefox.  Are there any other ways to run menus on a computer but with larger file sizes?

                                                      I think that I am finally in sync with you when you refer to Web TV. From your latest details, I think that you are referring to webDVD choice under Publish+Share.

                                                      That is not really DVD-VIDEO format with menus. Rather it is a flash file with menus. The user cannot customize the preset. It is 1280 x 720.

                                                       

                                                      In Premiere Elements 13 (latest version), the webDVD choice has been removed.

                                                        I used webDVD as a shortcut to test the project as I work on it.  So it's handy rather than burning a DVD.

                                                         

                                                        1. Do you see a problem with my method?

                                                         

                                                        As an aside, since I'm using version 12, at the end I should be able to make a final webDVD for my computer.

                                                        2. Could I share it with other so they could play it on their computers?  Or is there another method that would work?

What version of Firefox and Internet Explorer are you using? I can open it in VLC player, but the menus are not interactive.

I can't seem to Publish 1080i directly  to the DVD-R.  Only when I copy the BDVM 1080i from the file folder.  That works on the regular B-R  player but not on my PS3 B-R player.  1. What's happening?  I'm wondering if PS3 needs to see the file as burned directly from Premiere due to some publishing requirements of PS3.  Any thoughts?

It will not add to it. Typically the routine is (a) insert the disc (b) get the message that the disc is not empty, and program asks permission to erase (c) you indicate yes (d) disc is erased (e) new burn to proceeds.
