h.264 is not a compatible import forum.
Why would you take beautiful DVCProHD footage and converted to a delivery format such as h.264? Why convert anything?
Export QT/Current Settings/Self contained.
choose the compressor format for 16:9 SD DVD consistent with the total length of the video in minutes and Dolby2 audio.
I've been doing this with a HVX200 for eighteen months
Thanks for your reply and advice. To be honest, I tried H.264 first just as a quick test of the QT conversion utility from FCP. I've since tried other (superior) compression schemes and had luck importing them into DVD Studio Pro.
But since I'm relatively new to the layout of DVDSP, I'd greatly appreciate a little insider info from you: the material I'm using was shot on the HVX in the 24pN 720p mode. What settings should I use in DVDSP to get the 16:9 aspect ratio to appear correct on my DVD? No matter what settings I choose in the prefs/etc of DVDSP. I never get anything but squashed 4:3 footage in the DVDSP previews, and the user help is, well, no help at all. Does it preview this way, and then the DVD player itself either letterboxes the 16:9 content, or stretches it out to the proper 16:9 ratio, depending on the DVD player's settings?
Thanks very much,
