    Default Premiere Pro Advice

    I need a bit of advice. I have been creating video effects for a while in After Effects. I have always saved them as Loseless and passed them along to someone else to create a DVD. Now I am tasked for the first time with making my own DVD. The project is made of clips that I made with AF and saved as huge loseless files. They total 24 minutes when pieced together in the Premiere timeline.

    I need to figure out the best way to get these onto a DVD at the highest quality possible. (the clips total much more the 4.7 gigs so they need to be compressed someway before burning). Anyone have any advice as to what my best opinions are. Right now the only software I have is After Effects 6.5 and Premiere Pro 1.5.

    I really appreciate the help!


    PS I also posted this is the DVD burning forum...I wasn't sure where it better fit.

    I've never used it because I build my DVDs in Adobe Encore DV but Premiere Pro has an option to cut straight to DVD. You can't create menus or anything but it will create a play-on-load DVD from your timeline. Check your manual for the necessary options. Look especially hard at "Chapter 10: Producing Final Video - Exporting to DVD" on page 295 of your Premiere Pro manual.

    Basically, DVDs contain MPEG2 files which are compressed. These are much smaller than the lossless files your have at the moment. My guess if you have AVI files running at about 1Gb per five minutes of video.

    Let us know how it goes.
