Hi Guys and Gals. Firstly a run down on how I do things in Premier 1.5. After I have done my editing I play back the vid (from the timeline)via Firewire to my camera (Sony2100e) and from the camera I use an S connector (and audio lead) to my Sony DVD recorder deck(SonyHX-710).
The reason I do this is so I dont have to wait 10 or 12 hours(or more!) for the vid to be processed using the burner in premier or other burning programs. I don't have a problem with the output quality (it is the same as doing a disk in premier). The picture is pretty good all things considered.
But when monitoring the vid during editing on a tv monitor the vid looks fabulous. I would like to be able to keep the quality right to the disk.
I have run the firewire directly from the pc to the dvds recorder dv input but I get distorted audio and jumpy vid. There seems to be a compatability issue here?? I have also tried recording the vid to tape in the camera(via f/wire) and the vid still looks great, then playback from the camera to the recorder and that's when the quality drops (using the SP-2hr- mode on the deck).
Can anyone shed some light? Am I asking too much from the dvd format?
Cheers, and good luck..
