    Encoding for BluRay Help Please

    Mark Dalzell



      I'm encoding BluRay for the first time using Media Encoder CS4.


      First, some details about my footage.

      Shot with a Panasonic HVX-170 set at: 1080i/24PA.

      The footage properties are: 1280 x 1080, Pixel Depth 32, Frame Rate 29.97 (24P),

      Audio 16/48K, Average Data Rate: 1.2 Mb, Pixel Aspect Ratio is 1.5


      There are a number of settings to choose from. Some obviously aren't correct but I'm not sure

      about the others. I don't see one for 1280 x 1080.


      So out of all these settings, which is the one I need to Encode my footage for the best results?
