    Optimum Blu-ray Bitrate for Transcoding

      I've been running some benchmarks to determine what is the optimum bitrate to use when transcoding HDV to m4v for Encore CS3. Too high a bit rate and the compute time and file size are larger than they need to be. Too low a bit rate and the image quality suffers.

      Are there any suggetions on what an optimum HDV transcoding bitrate might be?

      From my benchmarks so far it appears 10mbps max and 7mpbs target is a good choice.
