Thread: DVD settings

  1. Default DVD settings

    Hi there,

    I'm near to finishing my first Sony Vegas Pro 8 video project and want to burn it onto DVD using DVD architect. I can't seem to find the answer to the definitive settings I need both in terms of project properties and rendering settings to get the best results for a DVD.

    Can anyone suggest the best ones?

    Many thanks

    Matt

    Default

    In your render settings, select mpeg2, and then go for DVD Architect compliant (Widescreen if applicable) video stream and AC3 for the audio. Just make sure you mark the timeline for precise start and finish so both streams match up.

    Thanks for the swift reply Andy - would this marry up well with Pal DV Widescreen options in the project properties?

    I cant help with specifics as I dont make many dvds - but i do watch very very many.

    Since I have set up my home projector I have noticed that anamorphic dvds look better than normal ones.

    If your project is wide screen I suggest cutting dvds as anamorphic.

    Thanks for the advice Mark - haven't a clue what it means but thanks anyway!!

    Any suggestions for the best Vegas settings however? I'm guessing the Pal DV widescreen properties?

    Anamorphic widescreen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Simply stated - the dvd is cut with the 16 9 pic vertically exaggerated so it fills the 4 3 frame.

    The tv detects this a resquashes the pic to 16 9. Thus you get a wide pic but with the full vert res the dvd format is capable off. Also vastly reduces other dvd artifacts like tearing / jaggies.

    Cos tvs detect this automatically I have a sneaking feeling many videographers havent twigged this yet.

    It is MUCH better - I generally avoid buying non ana ws dvds now.
