    Update: I tried TMPG and the encoding isn't good enough. Even with the quality settings cranked up all the way it can't handle the motion quite right. I couldn't figure out IFO Edit. I have barely authored DVDs and I think it's over my head technically. Anyone have luck with Sonic DVDit without Sorenson Squeeze? Current thinking is that

    Thanks, will download the trial of TMPEG and the Ifo Edit freeware to see if I can find something that works. Was also considering Sonic DVDit since I own Roxio Easy Media Creator so the upgrade would be cheap, but not sure about using it without Sorenson Squeeze in between. I could never get EMC to work without interlacing problems. Intervideo is a

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

    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

    Dang, I have serious Mac envy. I remember doing this in DVD Studio Pro and it's super easy. I will see if I can jerry rig InterVideo to do it.

    But, if you know that you will need it to be anamorphic, you can just encode it that way and the projector will do the work. But the DVD will look correct on any 4:3 monitor. So, you're saying that I have to find a way to put a 16:9 flag on my DVD...and I probably need to use encoding software rather than the DVD recorder? I didn't see a setting

  • DVD authoring for anamorphic projector

    Some clients have asked for their video to be delivered on DVD for use on an anamorphic projector. They shot their stuff in standard def at 16:9 aspect (squeezed) and we've edited the same way, just switching the Avid windows over to 16:9 to correct the aspect. So, do I just give them a DVD with the squeezed video and the projector corrects the

    Update: we are switching to local projects. Our reasoning is that it will give us more breathing room on the 500,000 limit for number of files on Unity.

    Highnoon: The shared project root is probably more of a question of theory, not practice. local projects + interplay overlay gives you a level of redundancy, and the check in - check out function lets you share more transparently than a shared root, because its non-destructive copies in and out of the asset manager. as for the underruns, etc. run a

  • Re: Interplay for Post - where do projects go?

    Well, checking the project out didn't work - I have some setting in the wrong place. All of our projects are 'external' and sitting on Unity. I'm planning to experiment a little more later in the week if I can get ahead on my project. Our video is going over fibre lines so we can handle 145, but I think we have some sort of bandwidth or performance
