Thread: Export To DVD

  1. Default Export To DVD

    Hello All,

    I have a slideshow ready to export to DVD and I am not too sure what encoding to use, I live in England and I think it is PAL but I tried PAL DV 4x3 High Quality 4mb VBR 2 pass and it looked OK but just wondering what the best choice is?

    Thank you,

    Best wishes

    Almost no one has a 4x3 TV any more so I tend to export to wide screen PAL. What you lose is a little horizontal resolution (pixels are no longer square), but at least you can get rid of the black side bars if you want.

    4mb is a little on the low side if you are doing any animation. I tend to use 7mbps if there is enough room on the DVD with 5 being about as low as I'd go for video (assuming a long video).

    Why limit the data rate if you don't need to?

    Thank you David,
    The options I have are
    PAL DV 16x9 Low Quality 3MB VBR 1/2 Pass up to 6MB as far as 16x9 go and one which says CBR 1 Pass which would you recommend?

    Thank you,

    Best wishes

    If you're doing stills then I'd go for the 6mb 2 pass VBR or the CBR. Avoid the low data rates where possible.

    If you're animating the stills then use the 2 pass VBR option.

    Hello again David,

    Can I run this past you again please? Am I right in thinking that I should use the 16x9 option closest to the one you advised, I think someone said nobody uses 4x3 anymore?
