Hello everybody! This is the tutorial I’m going to show you how to get your media ready for DVD Studio Pro using compressor.
Now I’m going to work with HD, you may be working FD material but the process is all the same. So don’t freak out because I’m using HD because with YouTube and so on which everything HD anymore and that’s pretty much all I work with. So as you can see I have a movie brought in here, it’s a video I’ve done. So we’re going to encode this and get it ready to take into DVD studio pro to burn to a DVD.
Now, I f you go to your settings, there will be about four folder, five folders into the Apple group of four folders. Now if you want to be called DVD, open that up and this is where all your DVD stuffs is. If you’re using just a regular standard definition of DVD and you have a 120 minutes for the material, this is what you want DVD best quality 120 minutes. If you have a 150 minutes and of course you want a 150 minutes. If you only have 90 minutes or less, then pick the 90 minutes. Because you know it’s going to be a better quality.
The more you’re trying to fit on to disk, the lesser quality it’s going to be. Now they have best quality and fastest encode. Now the difference between a 150 minutes saved best quality and a 150 minutes fastest encode, the only difference is the best quality is too fast and the fastest encode is one fast. So that’s about the only difference between the two. So just judge how many minutes you’re wanting to burn on to the DVD and pick the close system out.
For me I’m using HD DVD, so I’m going down here and we have an HD DVD H264 or 60 minutes, H264 90 minutes, these are the same thing it is depends on how many minutes you’re going to use. The 90 minutes will encoded at 6.5 Megabits per second and the 60 minutes is 10.3 Megabits per second. So you got a big a little bit more quality out of the 60 minutes but you’re not going to get this much on a disk, okay? And also, you have the HD DVD MPEG 2 and it’s even bigger than the H264, it’s like 11 MEGS second or I can—lets’ not make the second but it’s bigger as you can see 30 minutes compared to 60 minutes.
With the MPEG 2, you can actually get better color out of it then you can H264 and in my o pinion the H264 looks a little washed out but you can fix that in post because with the MPEG 2 the edges and all the effects are lot worst. The green is a lot worst, the stairs stepping around the edges of the person is lot worst. I’ll tell you what I’ll encode with both of them and I’ll let you see the difference. I’m not sure if you can tell that over YouTube but we’ll get with the shot.
Okay, so I’m going to pick, I’m just going to 90 minutes because I want to encode this fast. As you can see I’m going to click my audio, I got a double edition of professional and H264, 6.75 Megabits second HD. Okay, I’m going to drag them both that here to my movie. Okay, so t here we go, as you can see my destination is my desktop. I can right click, go to destination and set, go to other and set it for any where. I’m just going to use the desktop to make it simple. Now here is the trick, for and author for DVD Studio Pro to know that these two files go together because you’re encoding the audio separate from the video. They’re two separate files are not included with the one file like a quick time movie has audio and video on one. We’re doing the separate and for DVD Studio Pro to understand that these files are separate but they go together, you can pair them together. How does it note in pair by the title and then why you do that? Go over to your title and name it. I’m going this one, 1A.
So now we have 1A.AC3, that’s the title of our audio, so let’s go and name our video, we’ll call it 1A, now that’s 1A.movie. Notice the capitalization is the same and everything is exactly the same except for the extension. One is a movie and one is a C3. This is how a DVD Studio Pro will know it very, very important. The names have to be exactly the same except for the extension.
Okay, so now e have this set-up, let’s go down here and grab our HD DVD MPEG and drag it up here to the same one and drop it in and let’s change the name of this one to 1B like so. Then we’ll change the bottom Window 1B also. Now as you can see we have a 1A, 1B, one is H264, one is MPEG 2 both are HD. One of the HD MPEG 2, one is HD H264, both digital professional audio double the show.
So let’s go ahead and submit this, you’ll send them out to my desktop, it might take a little longer because as you can see I’ll encode in the background my CPU’s are up to max anyway let’s submit this. My best monitor will automatically open here and it’s going to a line here, one is already done, it’s successful as you can see right here. So I will edit this video out and I will be right back because there's a 10 minute time limited on YouTube now and I want to save every last second that I can save so I’ll see you guys in a minute.
As you can see we’re about done here now, and we’re finished. So let’s go to out desktop and look and here we go right here. Here is our 1A and 1B audio and here is our 1A and 1B video H264 and one is in MPEG. So, let’s open up DVD Studio Pro and I have it set-up like this so you all can see what’s going on. I’m taking up the whole screen so I can work down here and move this other ways so I can get this down here for you. Okay, now we have our video and our audio here. what I’m going to do is put them in a folder.
Create a folder because DVD Studio Pro can only import folders, call it whatever you want, I like to call them DVD Studio Pro as is but I’m going to leave my none titled because this is a tutorial. So let’s go ahead here a very file of this are, a quick look in and it looks like I stoned it up on the second monitor there. So I’ll bring it over to see.
Okay, now let’s put this in our folder. Okay now e have our DVD Studio Pro apps in our folder here, the file at DVD Studio Pro as you can see we’re in the basic set-up. I’m going to my video tab, go to my plus, I’m going to my desktop and bring in that on titled folder. Look as you can see it has 1A and 1B video and audio, I’m going to add and there is my video they’re automatically paired my audio and video together. Here’s 1A and here’s 1B if I take 1A and stick it in here, so there’s my background, there we go I have a completely HD 1280X72 DVD ready to be burned. Also I can, here’s the second move, there’s the MPEG as you can see it’s a little darker, let me drop the H264 ready, see how little more washed out that it than the MPEG, ‘cause the MPEG is a lot bigger to the file size. But if I go here, let’s find our movies, and let’s open and look ;with quick time shrink it down a little bit and let’s open our other one, and we’ll shrink it down a little bit.
Now if I can zoom in here, I’m going to try and show you t he difference between the H264 and the MPEG. As you can see the one on the left which is the H264 is a little louder but if you look real close at the ears on the MPEG you can see that its kind of jog at there, right but with the H264 you’ll see, it’s not.
So you don’t get Air Dry affecting with the H264, even though the color might be a little more contrast with the MPEG. So there you go guys, that’s exactly how you get stuff ready for DVD Studio Pro using compressor. I hope you’ve learned something. We’ll see you next time.
