If you are capturing your video with HDLink then use the preset of your recorded video.

If not then you will render to the preset you chose in CS5.

Should be no redline if your catured in HDLink to the same setting you shot with.

There's a comment from Cineform in the thread link below that you can use any preset. Not just the Cineform ones - unless you are editing 3D.

Prepurchase questions

As long as you use a preset matching the format you shot - 1080 50i 25fps - you should be OK.

With the new process flow in CS, you shouldn't export a video from Premiere to import into Encore. You should create a project in Encore and import the timelines from Premiere. This way you preserve the chapter marks you added to the Premiere timeline. Additionally, you then create a high-def project in Encore and are able to render the final disc files in both Blu-Ray and DVD format without any extra authoring in Encore.

This also has the advantage, when you preview the disc project in Encore, of allowing you to go back and fix the Premiere timeline without having to do another render. I sometimes forget to add 15 frames of black to end of my Premiere timelines after a short fadeout. (I add the black frames, so the screen blacks out before jumping back to the disc menu during playback, which looks better than leaving a faded out frame displayed on the screen, while the player shifts gears.) If I'm importing the timelines in Encore, I don't have to do another render.

John,
Are you saying that you use the same sized menu's for both BluRay and DVD's and Encore changes the size of the menus if you change from BluRay to DVD in the preferences? If so , do you use 1920x1080 for the menu's and then Encore automatically downscales the menu's to 720x480 Par 1.2 if you select DVD?

I guess also, Encore has to downscale the footage. I wonder if that's as good as using HDLink?

Thanks for your help.

Yup, I design the menus in HD and let Encore downsample them in the DVD authoring automatically. Saves a lot of time letting Encore generate both the Blu-Ray and DVD discs from the same project.
