    Use the 90 min DVD preset in Compressor.

    And could I ask that you be more specific with your thread titles, and add a little punctuation to your posts? That was a tough read.

    How did you export from FCP? It sounds like you used the wrong codec for exporting.

    DVD Studio Pro is SD only for all practical purposes (you can create an HD DVD but it will only playback on certain Macs and certain, discontinued, Toshiba HD-DVD players). Use one of the SD-DVD presets in Compressor.

    Also, what are the exact settings of the video codec you are editing and what are the exact settings of the timeline you are editing in?

    In FCP, go to File->Export->QuickTime Movie (not QuickTime Conversion). Export a self-contained or reference movie, then use the resulting file in Compressor.

    In Compressor, use the appropriate DVD preset (do NOT use an HD DVD preset).

    No, it's going to be in SD.

    If you intend to burn to DVD with DVD Studio Pro, then you're pretty much limited to SD.

    Hi,

    What you want to do is not possible: DVD's are made for SD only (and also DVD Studio pro). BlueRay is for HD. (You want an ordinary car to be as fast as a Ferrari, well it just isn't build that way...)

    So you have a few options:
    • Make a DVD with DVD Studio pro
    • Make a blueray with another program
    • Or make a blueray (HD) on a DVD
    The last thing is a trick and is called Blueray on red. See a very good description on:

    Good luck

    du u see whot i mean whit the interpunction ;)

    Grtz, Richard
