Re: HD to SD DVD, V-dub versus TMPGenc

Jeff you could work as normal and export a quick file with markers so that these can set the markers in DVDA. Then change the media in DVDA. Once set the markers will stay for the new file. Either for a Bluray file or the SD for DVD file. That is what I do. I edit in Edius encode in TMPGenc but do all my audio in Vegas. Bluray in DVDA and SD DVD mostly in DVDLAb.

Re: HD to SD DVD, V-dub versus TMPGenc

Ron, what can I say? Other than the fact that I re-render things after I find mistakes, and would then have to re-render twice after fixing things, I could live with that. What an excellent idea, thanks!

Of course I would only have to re-render if the length was longer or shorter, so most times I would be fine.

Might have a plan now, a new one.

Re: HD to SD DVD, V-dub versus TMPGenc

It depends on what you view as mistakes. If the mistakes are editing ones then just play off the timeline until you are happy. Then you only have to render off Vegas once and then convert in TMPGenc. If the issue is due to the encode so will not be seen until the DVD is made then you are correct it will mean going through the process again. I tend to watch from the timeline on a TV so that only export once to TMPGenc for video encode. I often redo the audio though just substituting media in either DVDA or DVDLab.

Well, thanks Ron. I guess I will download TMPGenc and give it a go!

I'm trying this method for the first time....Im getting great final results on the PC, however, when burning to DVD and watching on a DVD player/TV the footage looks jerky, especially where there is motion.

Anybody point me to what i'm doing wrong !!

It appears that you have deinterlaced the video but forgot to re-interlace it. This would have resulted in Vegas or DVDA inserting the wrong pulldown flags into the resulting MPEG-2 output (or more specifically, putting in unneeded pulldown flags, which actually reduces the frame rate from 30 fps to 24 fps as detected by the standalone DVD player). Also, what looks "good" on a computer monitor often does not look good out of a standalone DVD player due to their being fundamentally different: DVD is natively interlaced while computer monitors are natively progressive.
