If your CFHD files need to be rendered, then you must have failed to use a Cineform Preset. And without the Cineform Preset, you don't get the advantage of realtime and acceleration.
If you can't primarily use the Cineform effects, it will be less valuable, however, if you need to save out a CFHD and use it in another application like After Effects, the generational loss is not anything close to as severe as native HDV.
>My finalists in terms of visual quality when burned to DVD using Encore CS3, 7MB 2 pass VBR, came down to these:
1) H.264 max bit depth
2) QT Animation Sorenson
3) QT Animation Sorenson3
The H.264 takes a little longer to encode, but the visual quality wins out.
I agree with you on these - my computer setup is nearly identical to yours and it works well putting out these formats. As for AspectHD, when I installed the trial, the preset folder when opening a new project was empty, so I had the same experience as you with respect to not seeing the benefit. Maybe I had a problem with the install and should try it again.
The only way I've ever been able to install AspectHD properly involved manual registry tweaking and manual DLL registering. If you contact tech support they can walk you through it.
My computer is similar to Mystroh and Esc in KC. I am not as picky and I want to work in standard definition, I've been making movies in Premiere since version 5.5. In Premiere Pro version 2 I have been making movies using 3 different Sony videocams, usually about 30 minutes long, and exporting to tape and DVD.
So, I splurged for CS3 Production Premium and installed it. No problem.
I composed my first movie called 'Swindle Part 1'and exported it to Encore, (direct to DVD - no authoring) and it bombed near the end of the transcoding phase with the following message:
PGC "Swindle Part 1" has an error at 00;29;46;09. Internal software error: %0, line Swindle Part 1, ref = Bpgc, time = 00;29;46;09
The referenced timecode is one second from the end of the sequence.
I tried again with different clips in a different project and got the same error message.
I can successfully export this movie to tape and to a movie.
Try exporting a muxed file using the MPEG2-DVD format from Premiere.
