Comments Posted On :The Moving Picture: Authoring SD-DVDs for an HD/LCD World

Why not just shoot in 1080 60i? You can go to BD natively and easily downconvert to 30i for SD DVD.

I have the same basic question, Mr. Ozer. I produce the video at 16:9 format. I edit the video as usual and when I export from Adobe Premier Pro CS4 to Adobe Encore for DVD authoring, I usually choose the Widescreen Progressive High Quality setting. I don't mess with anything else. Sometimes I deliver the video to the client and stay to watch some of it with them...on their nice plasma or LCD TV. It looks choppy, and sometimes pixelated. How can I change the settings to eliminate that and get a nice, smooth playback on those types of TV's? Any info would be GREATLY appreciated! Peace, RR

I still produce much of my content for SD DVD delivery, but, since most today will be viewing the footage on widescreen sets it's produced as widescreen 16:9. So I was curious as to what Jan's recommendation is currently to encode HD footage for SD DVD? Does he convert it to 16:9 SD DVD at 30fps?
