Being able to push the upper limit was one reason why I upgraded my NLE software. I shoot for 8500 CBR with AC3 audio added to that. After 1,000's of replicated disks I have never had one returned for failure to play.

So no 5.1 then?

Sounds like you need Blu-ray :-) Personally I don't put my own video on DVD anymore, it's all Blu-ray HD now plus you can go for lossless audio at higher sampling, even with 5.1 or better.

Regards

Phil

Burn one DVD and listen to it through a decent stereo system.
If you find that the volume is too low, try the following adjustments.

Encode set to AC3;
Click on Custom tab;
On the first tab, set Dialog Norm at -31 (this sets it at unity gain);
On the last tab marked Preprocessing, set the Line Mode Profile and RF Mode Profile mode to "none";
Save this as a preset.

Unless you absolutely know what you're doing, I'd use the standard DVD Architect templates under MPEG-2. They're already optimized.

The ONLY change I'd make is if you're rendering HD footage -- change the Video quality to BEST because you're resizing the footage. But if it's SD footage all along, I wouldn't touch it.

Yes, Marcus, change the rendering to "Best" because it is now resizing the video.
