I'm editing using FCPX on an iMac and also using Compressor 4 and Toast 11 Pro, along with the latest version of iDVD, all my software is upgraded to the current versions. My original movie footage is recorded on a Panasonic HDC SD700, I always record in 1920x1080p 50fps, this generates .mts files which I convert to .mov files for editing using ClipWrap, I almost always convert using the Apple Pro Res 422 codec and it is these files that I bring into FCPX for editing. When the editing is complete I export a single file from FCPX as a master .mov file and it is this file that I want to use as the source material for my DVDs in the hope that I'll retain as much of the original quality. These files are therefore 1920x1080 50fps. I want to use these files as my DVD source material as they also act as the source material for the clips I upload, once they have been through Compressor, and it seems the easier option to use the same source files for my DVDs.
I've experimented for a while with Toast and DVD Studio Pro (DVDSP) in the hope that I would be able to produce HD DVDs which I would be able to play on a Blu-ray player but to be honest I've now pretty much given up on that as the whole process seemed to me to be generally to flaky and unreliable and life is too short to keep flogging a dead horse! I don't have a Blu-ray burner so I've decided to concentrate my efforts on trying to ensure that my SD DVDs are as good as I can get them to be.
Importing the master file or files into Toast has yielded half decent results but they really aren't that good and I've had better results using iDVD. My work with DVDSP, which has been what I really want to use on an ongoing basis because of it's flexibility, has hit rather a block. In DVDSP when I come to import my assets (the master files I've described), they import but I'm not getting green "lights" in the assets tab on the video file and the video can't be viewed, though I can hear the audio when it "plays". What I see is shown below:
So, I'm rather stuck really, since I can't get the assets in I can't make any further progress, can anyone suggest how I might move this forward?
