Problem with DVD quality
Hi,I use the JVC Everio , files were stored in a .tod format that Premiere CS 3 did not recognize and had to be converted to .mpg before import.After editing in CS3 if I burn DVD quality is a lover then if I play same file from camera connected to HD TV.What is best way save same quality on DVD?

Thank You for respond.

.TOD is high definition, yes? And you are creating a DVD, which is inherently standard definition... yes? That would tend to reduce the quality of your video substantially. DVD Video doesn't support high definition. That's what Blu-ray and AVCHD Disc are for. And for those, you'll need at least a Blu-ray player, possibly a burner also (if not using AVCHD Disc).

Hi again, Miro:

We can speculate, but I think we'll have a better chance of helping you if you take some time to explain exactly what you are doing, what settings are being used in Premiere and Encore, etc. Often times, there are one or two things missed that make all the difference. Also, describing what is "bad" about the video quality would be helpful too.

.TOD appears to be pretty arcane; you might also get more help if you asked this question in one of the Everio forums instead (if you haven't already done so).

Adobe Premiere CS3 (as well as CS4 and CS5) will always recompress your MPEG video, so some loss of quality is inevitable. "Generation loss" is not just for analog video! :-) That said, if you're using the maximum render quality and data rate settings for Blu-ray, the loss of apparent quality should be minimal.
