Thanks for the link.
Still though, if you import Quicktime Files (codec: H.264), shouldn't the Integrated MPEG encoder automatically transcode the file? (even if this is not as desirable as using MPEG-2).
Also, what type of MPEG-2 will be compatible in DVD Studio Pro? I tried making a program stream MPEG-2 but DVD studio gave me the incompatible format error.
Some encoders will but you never want to feed an MPEG 2 encoder an H.264 file. Maybe its a fail safe on Apple's part? You need to make an elementary stream, not a program stream. Always start off with the highest quality source possible before an encode....and H.264 is far from high quality. Its a delivery format, not a mastering one.
Where does this idea that H.264 is the end all to be all of high quality codecs?
