Set Up For Using Non-DVD Compliant Motion Assets In DVD Studio Pro

So you have gotten the hang of Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro and Motion and are ready to take advantage of the integration that these tools provide. Now you want to jazz up your DVD by supplementing some Motion Assets to your creation. Here's a bit of information you may find helpful.

I would recommend that you always use Compressor to convert your files to the MPEG 2 format before you import them as assets into DVD Studio Pro, but you can configure DVD Studio Pro to perform the conversion for you at the appropriate time.

When you import an asset from Motion (in a supported format) that is not DVD-compliant into DVD Studio Pro, the embedded Quicktime MPEG Encoder converts them to be DVD compliant. Within the encoding pane under DVD Studio Pro preferences, there are controls that determine whether the encoding for such files begin immediately in the background, or waits until you build the final project.

Setting Encoding Preferences:

1 Choose preferences in DVD Studio Pro.

2 Choose the encoding icon.

3 Choose encoding mode: Background Encoding lets encoding begin as soon as you import the asset allowing you to CONTINUE WORKING. Encode On Build will not start until you complete the project and build the Video_TS files.
