DVD/Blu-Ray Authoring/Pipeline planning

Postby Passenger001 on 08/9/2014, 8:34 am

Hi, I'm working on a project in Premiere. I will receive JPG-sequences (1080p) to work with.
The project needs to be released in DVD and Blu-ray.
I will use Encore to create the discs.

How would you proceed to get the best possible quality in the DVD?
- Would you create 1 HD project in Premiere and let Encore handle conversion to DVD resolution?
- is it better to create 2 Premiere projects in 1080p and 720x480 and then take them to Encore?
- is it even better to create 2 Premiere projects using JPG-sequences in 720x480 and 1080p respectively, instead of resizing the 1080p down to 720x480 for the DVD version?

I would greatly appreciate any feedback or other ideas to keep the highest quality in the DVD.
Thank you!

If you want to get super nit-picky about detail, etc. you could encode things separately out of Premiere. However, for most cases, Encore does a reasonable job of encoding things. I would create a single, HD sequence in Premiere and let Encore do the encoding.

If the final product doesn't look good enough, THEN go into futzing about with other workflows. However, Encore usually does a decent job.

Thanks so much for your reply, Michael. I'll go ahead and try it that way then.
