    Well if on a PC i'd get a blu-ray burner for a start so you can use Avid DVD to make a Blu-ray.

    That will also allow you to make an SD DVD version as well.

    And then Sorenson Squeeze to take that Avid ouput file to make whatever flavour web file you need.

    Hi,

    prostudio:
    1. put a file on a DVD for DVD devices

    Sorensen has DVD presets built in.  Use those.

    prostudio:
    2. for internet

    Does your client have a specification for you to follow, or is it up to you to pick whatever you think looks best?  If it's up to you, in my experience h264 Quicktimes generally look good, and Flash generally looks good - there are Sorensen presets for both of them.

    If your client has a spec, what is it?

    ciao,

    Re: Ok, i shoot and edited HD now what?

    my clients don't care as long as it looks good

    most of the time i make them 5-10 minutes movie of the event

    then they want it on DVD , PC high quality for projecting and internet virsion

    my goal is to keep the best quality to show the FHD shoot

    on MC5 i don't touch the output just select MOV and maintain aspect ratio, but then WMP and QUICKTIME dose not show it, i guess codec issues and ofcours my client nether I needs a 20GB file

    so i need ur help what settings to export the MOV from MC5 to keepit the highest res, then wich settings to convert it on Sorenson for burning a DVD with nero and WMV virsion that shows the HD quality in normal size

    Re: Ok, i shoot and edited HD now what?

    Hi,

    probably your nick is misleading... When you choose MOV you should also choose Format, because mov is just a container and the codec inside is really important. (I don't use Sorenson so my suggestion is about to export directly from MC.) After clicking on Format there is a video section, where you can choose from the codecs that are available on your computer.

    - For standard dvd you have to scale down the resolution at some point, so the question is, what software do you use for authoring and burning dvds and what source format can it work from. You can either export HD material (I recommend h264 or Mpeg4 codec) if the dvd software can handle it, or you can export SD material (after selecting MOV, enter 720x576 16:9 "size to fit" then choose codec - h264 or mpeg4 also works here, but you can make dv-compressed output as well, it works well for me in Adobe Encore)

    - For the internet, it's not clear if you want small files with draft (but still ok) quality to send easily or you want to publicate in the best possible quality. For the first I say 640x360 mpeg4 with 1-2Mbit/s bit rate, and mp4 AAC audio gives good results, but even this way 5-7mins will require a "large file sending" service. For the second, stay in HD (h264 or mpeg4 again) as you can upload fullsize best quality files on e.g. youtube. If your file gets extremely big without a video data rate restriction, you can put a 30-35Mbit/s limit to push the file size of 7 mins below 2GB.
