What is the Fastest way, EX3 footage to DVD ?

Hello All,

Happy Thanksgiving!

I have searched work flow etc...
and read much...
I AM NOT Looking for Apple/Final Cut solutions!!!!
WINDOWS ONLY! sorry for the yelling.
Shooting on an EX3
I use AVID MC3.5
Adobe Master Collection 4 Premier + Encore
and "New to" Vegas 9.0 + DVD Arch
Clip Browser 2.6

So here's the question...
What's the fastest way/work flow to get footage 720P/60 (2 16GB SxS cards full) burned to DVD?

I used to go MXF>Editor>Render>DVD burning software>DVD
Is there a quicker way? Does DVD Arch take BPAV/SxS native?
Any advice is appreciated!
Happy Holidays!

I know it appears you are looking for a software based solution, but let me say, I love my hardware DVD burner for this kind of stuff.

For clients that want a window burn, I just select timecode in the display output menu and hookup the camera directly to my $120 stand-alone burner and hit play/record and walk away. With all the holiday sales coming up, you could find one cheap.

Something to think about if you need client review copies often...

WOW funny!

I have been thinking of this a Black Friday solution today...

so, Do you just use the BNC composite to RCA jack + headphone to RCA jacks out?
I guess in simple form, how do you connect?

It looks great, I take it.?!

P.S. Thanks for the reply!

I have an EX1, and it has a AV cable with composite video and audio as RCA out. I tell the camera to downconvert to SD with a squeeze option and tell the DVD machine that incoming video is 16:9. Badda bing.

The EX-3 has S-Video out, so make sure you get a recorder with S-Video in, then use the audio output jack with a stereo mini-to-RCA cable and you're gold.

BTW, it looks totally acceptable for video quality.

Thanks for the reply.

I bought a Sony DVD recorder... because it had iLink, ha. ($118.00)
It works fine, with the exception of iLink.
Would not work no matter what I tried.
1080 60i SP> iLink enabled etc...
I use BNC and Audio out with no problem.
*the ex3 downconverts in camera :)
(the dvd recorder has no S-Video input unfortunately :( )

Thanks again!
