The video is a Quicktime movie (with High Quality turned on) that was rendered out of Final Cut Pro. It contains a series of cg video clips that were rendered out of Alias Maya 6.0 and one audio clip that was in .aif format.
As far as Nero itself goes, I used NeroVision Express 3, as that's the default Nero program that came up for me and I've never used Nero before. Under the Video Options --> Transcoding Quality tab, I set Quality Setting to High Quality, Sample Format to Automatic, and Encoding Mode to High Quality. This automatically set a bit rate of 9716 kbit/s. The Audio Format was automatically set to AC-3.
