    XDV to DVD...need to figure it out, fast & cheap

    Locked Contact

    I bought XDV 4.6 some time ago as a download, so didn't get any of the third-party software like Sorenson Squeeze or anything.  I don't do many DVDs and for most of my stuff have gotten through with InterVideo or my consumer DVD recorder.

    I have a client who needs a DVD for an anamorphic projector.  Project is SD, was brought into Avid squeezed and cut with the windows flipped to 16x9.  I need to figure out how to ouptut a quicktime and flag it as 16x9 in the encoding software, then author it to DVD.

    I am considering downloading Sonic DVDit 6, seeing as it's very reasonable.  I own Roxio Easy Media Creator so could get the upgrade price. -  My only hesitation is that I never got past interlacing issues with Easy Media Creator so I'm hoping to hear that somebody uses this workflow and it works


    1. Can I go from XDV straight to DVDit 6 without Sorenson Squeeze in between?

    2. What are the export settings to use from XDV?

    3. Can I flag video as 16x9 in DVDit? Just the standard one, not the HD version.

    4. Can I create an auto-start DVD in DVDit 6?

    Thanks so much!!!  Any suggestions are welcome.

    Didn't you already post this once? If so, could you refrain from double posting the same subject please? Just bump your first post to the top of the forum if you'd like folks to take another look.
