1. When I capture to Premiere 6.5 from a Sony TRV-22, the captured AVI shows up as 480x720 with .9 pixel width. This works out to 480x710 at a 1.0 pixel width. How should I be exporting this video?
I can export to MPEG-2 at 480x720 at .9 width, but I think 4x3 is 480x640. I don't know where the other pixels are coming from.
2. I am exporting to MPEG-2 then importing to DVDit. DVDit wants to re-render the video even though it is already MPEG-2. This takes a loooong time...hours. Should I just export the video as AVI to avoid double-compression, since it's just going to be rendered again anyway? Is there some way to do this more efficiently?
1. 720x480 is the correct resolution for DV and DVD under NTSC system. Just remember the pixel aspect ratio between a computer monitor and TV is different.
2. DVDit won't re-render (or re-encode) if your video is already in MPEG2 DVD standard. Check the Premiere export settings again and make sure you've selected the MPEG2 DVD standard and not just MPEG2.
