What is the right way of exporting video to DVD format? I have Adobe Premiere Pro. I have used the " export " option with H 264 codec with high resolution. It has produced a 2GB mp4 file which I like.
I have tried to export it as a DVD format (setting MPEG-2 DVD) however it creates a 500MB file which is not as good quality as the mp4 file. I have set everything the way that Premiere would create the highes quality. Still it is not as good as the mp4 file.... What do I do wrong?
I also tried to convert the mp4 file into a DVD format and I ended up with a smaller less quality video...
Is it possible to achieve high quality via DVD format export and how??? What do I have to do?

How long is your show?
For a 10-12 minute program Premiere's default settings will yield about a 500 mb mpeg2 file. You can up your bitrate to 8mb average and change the bitrate encoding to 2 pass vbr. To be DVD compliant, audio and video together must be under 10mb (see what is DVD in the upper left corner of this site.)
Which authoring program are you planning to use?
I'm guessing (because you haven't specified) that your mp4 is high def. DVD is always standard def and will not be as sharp.
Video encoding is not like putting video through WinZIP or RAR. Encoding is entirely different.Our inventions are wont to be pretty toys, which distract our attention from serious things. They are but improved means to an unimproved end. -- Henry David Thoreau
