Hi Guys

I've finally bought a new computer and wondered if anyone knows the best UK HD Rendering settings to produce a DVD?

I'm using the following:

Software - Sony Vegas 12 Pro

Camera - Canon 600D

Computer

6 Core AMD

8GB Ram

1Tb Memory

Cheers in advance

You live in the UK, so your DVD needs to meet PAL specifications:

 

25 frames per second (50i or 25p)

 

720x576

 

Pixel aspect ratio for 4:3 is 0.9375

 

Pixel Aspect Ratio for 16:9 is 0.7031

 

I'm assuming you need to render all this as MPEG-2

Rob, you better look again.

PAL 4:3 has a PAR of 1.0926 and PAL 16:9 has a PAR of 1.4568

Thanks for the info, but I'm after the setting to burn to DVD.

 

for instance, do I render it in HDV, AVCHD, BLUE RAY? Etc etc..... Plus do I burn in to DVD, Dual layer DVD or Blue ray disk?

 

It was a lot simpler in the SD days lol.....

 

As I mentioned I'm working in Sony Vegas 12 and the film is about 15mins long in full HD. 

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Since you want HD, it has to be Blu-ray so try either of these options.

 

1) Main Concept MPEG-2 - BluRay 1920x1080-24p, 25 Mbps Video Stream

 

2) Main Concept AVC/AAC - BluRay 1920x1080-24p 25 Mbps Video Stream

The PARs are both correct - they're just what happens when horizontal and vertical get swapped in the calculation. if you multiply each one by the other, you get a value close to 1 (in both cases, 1.02ish) Just different ways of expressing the differences in ratio.
