Is main concept “DVD Architect” NTSC MPEG-2 compatible with DVD Studio Pro?

(As I post this, the answer to my question is becoming rapidly obvious by the second – nevertheless, I thought I’d ask anyway…)

I have a client who is attempting to burn a DVD with an MPEG-2 file I sent to them. It was created in Vegas 7d and encoded for DVD using the “DVD Architect NTSC video stream” template.

My client is telling me that DVD Studio Pro is returning an error message > “incompatible format” when he tries to import the file into DVD Studio Pro.

The more I think about this, I’m guessing that the “DVD Architect NTSC video stream” template is for DVDA only – duh…

Perhaps I should use the “DVD NTSC video stream” template to render and create an .m2v file – which will work within DVD Studio Pro?

Can anybody confirm this?

Thanks –


BTW – if the above is accurate – why does DVDA have its own flavor of MPEG-2? Or maybe DVD Studio Pro has its own flavor?

DVDA doesn't use it's own flavor of MPEG 2, it's header information that is incompatible, and DVDStudioPro wants m2v's.

Spot –

Thanks for the info –

Question:

So as I understand it – DVDA’s MPEG2 (.mpg) and .m2v (used in DVD Studio Pro) are both MPEG-2 files – yes?

What is the difference aside from the compatibility (header) issue?

Hello,

I have had trouble here also.. In Vegas 6, I could render out my Vegas timeline to a DVD Mpeg2 stream, and import it into DVD Studio Pro, no problem.. But after upgrading it to Vegas 7, I noticed I got the same error you talked about, when trying to import into Studio Pro.. I wound up reverting back to Vegas 6 to get my Mpeg 2 file.. So I believe something has changed here...

Thanks all --

Yes, select the 'DVD NTSC video stream' template when rendering. This will will give you an elementary stream .m2v file that will work in DVD Studio Pro.

ac3 is universal -- so no prolem there...
