MPEG2/DVD Compression Settings for High Action Sport: Advice Sought

Hi there

I have just started producing DVDs of Australian Rules football games of about 90 minutes duration.

With a one camera set-up, there is a lot of panning and moderate tilting.

I shoot in DV format on a Sony Z5Pand capture/ingest AVI files in Sony Vegas 10.

I just completed a batch of DVDs, encoding the AVI files as standard MPEG 2 files.

The results were adequate using the standard template for a single pass VBR encoding, and there was not one complaint.

However, I am keen to experiment a little with different compression settings to better the workflow and DVD, and to actively learn more about encoding/compression.

For example, in a high-action sport like Australian Rules football, would a Constant Bit Rate encode produce a better DVD than a Variable Bit Rate encode? If VBR is better, what should I be dialling in on the relevant settings.

Any advice or suggestions from the field are APPRECIATED.
