We have a 1hr 40 minute movie that we plan to show at a local theatre. The theatre says they can show it from DVD or computer. I meet with them this week. The movie is a documentary with just interviews and simple transitions; no special effects (4:3) What are the best settings to export to DVD for the best quality for a large theatre?
I believe the projector will connect to my laptop via VGA to play from the computer. (I'll find out this week)I have concerns with my Audio Out. If I go that route, what is the best file format? I guess AVI. If I ran it directly from Premiere, I worry about stalling issues. Any suggestions? Thanks as always - Art

If you can hook it up to your computer, DVD compression might not be the best option. Kinda depends on the projector and your source material. Can you tell us your source resolution and codec? Also do you know what your projector's resolution is?
I meet with them Feb. 4 I may not know about the projector until then. My appologies for lack of knowledge...my source resolution/codec? The final movie is still on the timeline in Premiere CS4 720x480 29.97 D1/DV NTSC 4:3 Microsoft AVI codec DV NTSC. I only use this setting because it works for what I usually need for playback on a TV set. I have never done anything as large as a movie projector - Art
