Best codec for avi to mpg2

      Hi all,

      I’ve been trying every codec possible in After Effects to create a compatible .avi to transcode in Encore without luck. I transcoded a file with a codec of Intel Indeo 4.5 and it worked fine in Premiere Pro (Encode to DVD). However, I need to put the .avi into Encore, then transcode, then burn. What am I doing wrong or is the codec uncompatible in Encore?

      Is there a "best" codec to use for avi to mpg2 transcoding? Much appreciated!!

      Encore will gladly accept .avi files. I don’t have AE but if possible, use the Microsoft DV AVI compressor to make your avi file. If not, try any "uncompressed" format.

      Uncompressed will work, but is very large when brought over. I noticed that when "transcoded" into mpv format it becomes twice the size of the original. Thus, this isn’t an option. Thanks for replying.

      In regard to importing into Premiere Pro and then exporting as an mpg2 back to Encore. How do you do that when there’s only an Export to DVD feature…straight to dvd? Am I missing something? Thanks.

      But this is for streaming video over the internet…isn’t it?

      I’m using MainConcept MPEG Encoder and I’m having problems.

      It says that some frames are UNDERFLOW…

      Anyone knows what’s wrong?
