Why use Encore 2 when you have Encore CS3?
> As many of you know, the timelime of Premiere Pro ( CS3 ) does
not always match the Timelime of Encore
What do you mean?
> What is the best way to calculate the length of a video
Total sequence length.
> What size / lenght of video will fit on a 4.7 G dvd without or
almost no compression ?
Without compression is not possible for regular DVD. You need to compress to MPEG2. Length depends on compression settings. Let Encore handle that for you.
> Another question, what are the best DVD for Videos +R or -R
Does not really matter anymore, as long as you use good quality disks like TY or Verbatim.
>What size / lenght of video will fit on a 4.7 G dvd without or
almost no compression ?
With the least amount of compression (i.e. at the highest bit rate allowed for DVD-Video) you can put a little over 60 minutes on a single layer disc.
I have to say THANKS AGAIN Ruud !
I think this is not the first time you respond to me
WITH THE RIGHT ANSWER or exactly what I was looking for.......
Thanks to you too Harm for putting more questions.......
On the -R/+R question, the answer is "it depends." It depends on the set-top DVD players that your clients have. Neither flavor will be guaranteed to work in 100% of the players out in client-land. (Actually, no "burned" DVD can be guaranteed to work on 100% of the players.) You might have to do another version, if you get complaints/returns. Still, with each passing year, the flavor of DVD media seems to mean less. Do follow Harm's suggestion on media brand though, and burn as slowly, as you can. Encore can be set for some pretty slow burn speeds, dependant on your media and your burner. Go with the lowest speed that it allows. A moment saved by burning fast will likely come back to haunt you with some clients' players. It takes less time to do it slowly now, than to have to do a re-burn later. Just get a cup of coffee, while you burn at 2x, or whatever.
I use Falcon DVD-R media (only available in the US from DiskMakers) with an AD-7200S burner, and even burning at 18X I routinely create disks with fewer playback errors than the disks Hollywood makes. Not a one has ever failed to play for a client.
Thanks Jim, I had never seen those "Falcon" Before.
Verbatims I got no idea, in the begining when Cds came out to
the market, I bough a few and put it trough test, I mean dropping
hot water on it, and things like that, most loss the cover
leaving you only the transparent plastic, at that time
the only one that resisted was Memorex, however I had been
seening a few errors here and there on videos that I make and I wonder
if quality of current Memorex is the problem.
I will try one of those brands.............
Merry Chritsmas to all !!!!!!!!!!!!
As far as I know (based on reading in various Premiere forums) Memorex does not make their own discs... they buy from "various" places, which means you may get good ones, or crap... sometimes in the same bundle so you get a good burn and the next disc doesn't work well
That's very very interesting, I didn't know that.
( And makes very good sense, that's what I'm thinking is happining )
100000000 of Thanks
I've never had much luck with memorex disk. cd or dvd.
