HD Edit to DVD

I recently completed a project of my kids using a sony HD camera. I captured and edited it in premier pro 2. I am having difficulty putting it on a DVD. My idea was I would edit and store the project in Premier HD files. I would downconvert it to view and burn the project now on regular DVD. Latter when blu-ray, HDDVD or whatever HD format became resonable for consumers, I would already have the project edited and would only need to reburn it to the new HD format. How or can you downconvert and burn the Premier HD files to a DVD?

It depends om how long the HD video file is. As an .avi you will need about (don't quote me) ... ~ 1 gig per minute. Other more compressed formats will degrade the file, but save you space.

You maybe better off buying a USB2/firewire external hard drive of 500 gigs or so and storing all your lossless .avi files there.

Cheers,Robert

Hey Robert,
Thanks for answering. I do have plenty of space I have an external E-sata raid box with 1T of space and hot swappable drives .

So I guess I need to change over the Premier Pro files to AVI and burn that to DVD now and save my PP2 files for a latter date?

Does Premier have an easy way to do that?

I also have heard double layer discs might not work that well, Do you know if that is true.

Any help will be appreciated. I am obviously new to this.
Thanks

I may have miss-interpreted earlier, I guess you want to down res your HD file to DV and then onto DVD, keeping the original HD for later.

There are a great many potential ways to do this depending on your set-up and time constraints and much discussion on the DVinfo board. I am also researching on my own workflow and experimenting with different software solutions. Following are just a few of the threads dealing with this issue...

Probably the first thread is the best ..

Re Blue Ray, not sure about this, though I am sure there would be a thread on this here somewhere.

Cheers,
Robert
