Sony Z1e to Blu-Ray

Hello,

Can someone explain the best workflow to get get my footage onto Blu-Ray?

At the moment I edit in Pr CS4 then send it to Encore with the a Max Bit Rate of 25Mbps and a res of 1440*1080.

Is this the best way? Shoudl I be converting to 1920*1080?

This is a characteristic of your editing programme not the camera. I can't be specific because I use Avid but I would have thought it you can output 1920x1080 that would be ideal.

Suck it and see.

David, Z1e, like any HDV camera, delivers footage at anamorphic 1440X1080, so I don't think it's an issue with Adobe software (which supports higher formats also). This resolution and the 25mbps bitrate are the ones delivered by the output of the camera, so you're doing nothing wrong. Giving output at 1920X1080 won't do anything better either. 1440X1080 is in 1,333:1 aspect due to miniDV compression required. If you go 1920X1080 the 1,333 aspect will change to 1:1 and that's all the difference it will be. I have tried it and haven't noticed any loss of quality, because it's not really upscaling, but more of an pixel aspect change. But I'd go with the native resolution, it renders faster! :)
