I have Adobe Premiere on a PC and I need to encode a DVD. I’m not that impressed with the built in compressor/encoder. It’s a 95 minute file so it’s large and needs a lot of compression. Is there a quality encoder I could get for encoding DVDs that’s under $500? Plug-in maybe? It needs to be worth the money for a professional quality encoding job. Thanks!
I have been using their Video Studio 11+ (discontinued now). It works all right, although I had issues with variable compression rate (could be my ancient DVD test player), so I ended up setting it to constant rate all the time. Good thing about rate – you could play with it to set it to the highest possible rate within your disk capacity.
