You should check your transcode setting in Encore.
If you would click in the project panel on asset imported from premiere then on the right side of the program you will se the properties panel
and there you can change the transcode settings. Select something like 7mbps VBR 2 pass if video is over 1 hour, or 8mbps CBR 1pass if your video is under 1 hour.

Does that mean Dynamic Link, or do you export an AVI and start Encore?
What are your EXACT Encore project and output settings?
Im using Dynamic Link...
I figured it has something to do with my transcoding but how do you retranscode something after its already been transcoded? Also when I play the DVD on xBox or my BluRay player the video looks like crap but if I play it through media player it looks fine???
My project settings are: Codec MPEG-2; Dimensions: 720 x 480; Frame Rate:29.97;
Fields: Lower First
When you say export settings are you wanting my transcode settings?
Sorry I am new to Encore...
With ADL (Adobe Dynamic Link), you have two choices:
You establish the Dynamic Link and then let En Transcode on Automatic (usually very good, though a lot of motion can get past it), or setting the Transcode Settings in En. In En's Project Panel, Rt-click that/those Asset(s), and change the Transcode Settings.
The only "work" that needs to be done is 32KHz Audio to 48KHz Audio for the DVD.
Hope that gives you options for good results.
PS - there is another option, but not with ADL. You can use other DVD Encoders to do the Encoding to MPEG-2, though you might want to read up on "bit-budgeting," if doing all Transcodes from PrPro with a separate Encoder, just to insure that everything fits.
This is how it should be. You are stretching regular SD 720 x 480 screen onto 1920x1080 or what ever your tv is capable of, and expecting to get a great picture? You cannot compare SD to HD format videos. You can set your TV to display original size screen for videos and that should improve your SD video on the screen however you will get a black envelope on sides of the screen, but the video would look much better.
never thought of that! Thanks
