Premiere CS4. HDV to SD conversion(Dual layer DVD)

I recorded on Canon XHA1 HDV recording. I wish to output this to highest SD (DVD quality as possible) I am using Dual Layer DVD. The video editing sofware I use is Adobe Premiere CS4. How can I do this?

Your question is really too big to deal with thoroughly here. I'd suggest that you invest US$25 for a monthly subscription to the training site. There might be better training facilities out there, but I haven't found one for people in your situation.

Once you've gone through that training, you should do a small sample project. Something about 10 to 15 minutes long to familiarize yourself with the process. It can save you a bunch of grief later. If you do something wrong with the test project, you won't have to undo, then redo everything in your big project.

I hope that will get you started.

I was also thinking of this problem as i am currently working out my workflow and what I found is that after I edit my HDV raw file and go to export to encore......I get the option to either burn to blu ray or DVD and when I selected DVD I chose the custom setting for High quality widescreen and it worked fine on my DVD player and I assume I can next export the project to Blu-ray......or am i missing something....because wether its blue ray or dvd everybody these days is happy with widescreen

I belive that is may not be the better solution. Well for me it is not.

I agree with Tripp search online for workflows and do your on tests with small samples. It is very hard to find someone in the exacly same situation as you, but I get tell you everyone is searching for the best quality.

So far, I edit in premiere CS4, then I open the project in AE CS4, render it lossyless with huffyuv, resize in Vdub, and convert to DVD with TPMGEnc.

It toke very long to come with this and I am not full satisfy.

Hope I help
