Hello all

I been doing some hd projects and I want to burn into a dvd, but the problem is that everytime that I make one into a DVD with DVD Studio Pro 4, the quality goes down big time

I been going nuts and I ahve no idea what to do, My only guess is that I can't make prime quality dvds with my G5 2.7, but I have friends in theindustry that use the same machine to do their dvd's....


PLease help

Most of the the projects are DVCPRO HD done with the Varicam
Some of them are just graphics done in MOtion 2


Thanks

The quality of your image is related to what you set the bit-rate as. Meaning, a higher bit rate gives you better quality. If you look at DVDSP, you can adjust the bit-rate under encoding preferences. Older DVDs have playback issues with bit-rates over 9MBs so set your high value below that and your average value to about 2MBs lower than your high (you set two bit-rates).

The trade off is running time. If you have a longer running time, you need to use a lower bit rate.

For the best control, use Apple Compressor.
