Burning question

I have a reception that is JUST over an hour long. I use Premiere Pro. How do I get this to fit on a DVD?

Do I have to adjust the settings when rendering the movie from Premiere? Or do I have to fiddle with the settings when burning?

Thanks!

One hour on a DVD is no problem. You can fit up to two hours of SD video and retain very high quality.

You don't specify which version of PP you have. With CS3, you can let the Media Encoder transcode using automatic settings. I've used that setting for interlaced material without problems. With progressive source footage, I'm a little skeptical about automatic since I don't know what the Encoder is doing... what settings it's using. Is it smart enough to know that it's progressive footage and render out progressive or does it want to interlace? Dunno. I'll pick my own settings for progressive.

Thanks!

I have CS3. The video is about an hour and 20 mins.

Not to be a pest but do you know what settings I should be using in order to still retain high quaility?

Thanks again.

Hey Kelley.....

There are bitrate calclulators out there (not sure if i'm allowed to link)...
Just fill in the disk size, total time, and audio bitrate (usually 128 kbps for AC3 stereo), and whatever the bitrate calculator suggests, use it...

Is your audio being compressed to .AC3??
Because if you're using uncompressed audio to authour your final product, you'll be very limited...
