HELP - Best export settings for DVD/USB

Hi all,

I'm new here and need to deliver a 10-minute wedding film, ideally on both DVD and USB.

Issue is, the exported file (H264 - 1080p):

a) Looks like garbage on TV once playing through DVD player
b) Freezes 45 seconds in on both DVD and USB 2.0 sticks

Can anyone help me with how I should compress my Master File using Compressor - master file is ProRes (LT) - to best play via USB stick and DVD?

Have been trying to find the answer to this but no clear details, and delivery deadline is tomorrow!

Re: HELP - Best export settings for DVD/USB

1) Use the "Share" menu to make a DVD. Easy enough. Remember the DVD is in standard definition.

2) Try to make a 720P h264 file for the USB stick and see if that works. Check the h264 files in your computer also. If they freeze regardless then there might be something wrong with the footage you are working with. Unlikely but it happens rarely.
