Output to DVD. Any help = Best Friend for Life
Thank you for any response.

I've been working with Cineform Aspect and Adobe Premiere Pro 2. When I follow the 'workflow' suggeseted on the Cineform site (exporting to Cineform HD avi... etc), I end up with a 10 Gig file. I import that into Adobe Encore DVD and create the final output.

I'm not real happy with the results.

I shot the film with the HD 100u on 720 p, and the captured output looks pretty decent. But by the time I've put it on DVD, it looks kinda crappy.

For the Cineform HD output, should I 'uncheck' the 'recompress' field?

I'm using NTSC DV High Quality 7 Mb VBR 2 Pass for final encoding. Should I use constant bit rate? Or possibly something else? (single pass?)

Is Adobe Encore crap?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Those instruction are best for 1080i60 sources, which 98% for the HDV uer has. You what to produce a 720x480 16x9 Progressive 24p/30p master. That will look nice when converted to DVD.

I recommend doing the scaling from 1280x720 to 720x480 in AfterEffects, as that seems to produce the best downconverting results of any Adobe app.
