Best definition?

What is the best definition a normal dvd can achieve. I recently purchased a normal dvd that was 720p. Or atleast that is what my tv said it was being displayed as. Anyways if 720p is the best how do I achieve this? Do I have to shoot in High Def then down convert it to 720p? Or do I shoot in standard definition and render it as 720p. Please be patient with me I'm kind of a newb at this stuff.

If it was a normal DVD I would assume your player or TV was upconverting it for play back. My TV says that my dvds are HD when I play them off of the PS3. I made them, so I would know if they were HD. But the PS3 scales it to an HD size.

Makes sense. But I have another standard dvd that plays in 480p. Is that right? It's 4 something.

I would really like to know if that's (480p) possible. But I'm pretty sure studio pro can't do it, and I was told by a DVD lab that it's not possible.
