Hi everyone, i have a number of tv episodes that I want to burn to DVD. Some of these files are avi and mpeg1, however i know that to get better quality they should be mpeg2. My question is 3-fold, first the files have different resoultion, some are 352x280 others 420X234. Anyway 2 get better quality when coverting to mpeg2, should i change this resoultion to 720X480 or something else?
Secondly, i’ve recently seen that when coverting mpeg1 to mpeg2, the bitrate i.e 4000 Kbps, plays a factor in terms of quality, is there a good number to encode at to get the best quality without taking up alot of space??
And third, how is it possible to put a large number of episodes onto 1 dvd that are at high quality. For example when you buy a season of a tv show of dvd, they are able to put like 8 full 1hr episodes and commentary on 1 dvd and the quality is amazing. When I author using DVD Pro lab, i also use it in conjunction with DVD shrink…is there a better avenue to follow??
I greatly appreciate anyhelp anyone can offer. Thanks in advance
