Thread: Designing a Template/Timeline for Encore ( from Premiere Pro )

    Default Designing a Template/Timeline for Encore ( from Premiere Pro )

    Hello all, this is my first post so i hope im not going over anything that has been drilled to death. I have tried to do some research on the matter but there is a mountain of information to troll through here, so im taking the lazy option and posting.

    Im trying to set up a template of DVD menus and timelines for Encore. The idea is, i want to make DVD's for my skydiving friends and re-use the same DVD template over and over. Iv already made a DVD template that i like.
    i.e.
    - a shout introduction film plays ( IntroMovie )
    - a dvd menu with motion then follows ( MenuMovie )
    - The menu links to the film i just shot for my friends and then loops back to the menu

    Easy right?

    The problem is, iv made the two movies mentioned above ( IntroMovie, MenuMovie ) but i don't want to transcode this part of the DVD every time i build a DVD from Encore. I figure that if there is a way to Render my movies so Encore will just integrate them into the project without transcoding them, then im on a winner!

    My question is, what are the best settings to Render my IntroMovie and MenuMovie in, so that i don't have to transcode these files everytime that i make the DVD?

    Iv tried the following settings in Premiere Pro ( im using PAL btw ):

    Code:
    -Codec= MPEG2
    -Multiplexer= mpg
    -Pixel Aspect Ratio = Square Pixels = (1.0)
    -Dimensions= 1050x576
    -Level = 3.2
    -VBR = 2 pass
    Im wondering if im better off doing:

    Code:
    -Pixel Aspect Ratio = 16:9 = (1.4587)
    -Dimensions= 720x576
    Im also wondering if im going about this entirely the wrong way.

    Anyway, my girlfriend is on the verge of leaving me if i don't work this out soon. Any help or and links are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks, and Hi to all

    Well i worked it out.

    Basically Encore will render the final image in:

    720x576 at 16:9 ( 1.4587 )

    So exporting my video from Premiere Pro in the following was the key:

    -Codec= MPEG2
    -Multiplexer= mpg
    -Pixel Aspect Ratio = 16:9 = (1.4587)
    -Dimensions= 720x576
    -Level = 3.2
    -VBR = 2 pass
    This can be marked as resolved. Thanks.
