First of all hello and congrats on a very thorough editing forum!
And now for my problem: I have captured a 1080i material and I would like to burn in on a DL DVD, as a DVD (with menus and everything) with a resolution of at least 1280x720. I have captured it through Premiere CS3 and naturally have to burn it through encore. Problem is, I dont own a Blu Ray writer and Premiere wont let me export it at that resolution unless I set it to burn with a Blu Ray Writer. Now I recently bought Lead's H264 codec and thought that If I encoded with its high compression ratio it would allow me to burn on DL dvd (the materials length is 1 hour and a few minutes. But I dont know why Premiere doesnt see the encoder.
So, if you could give me some tips or alternatives I would be very grateful!
Thank you in advance!
