Avoiding Re-Encode

Question

Is it possible to burn dvd with My DVD without re-encoding previously encoded .m2p files? I thought it was but I cannot find a setting that allows this. Does "smart encode" do this or does smart encode really mean dumb encode?

 

I like to encode my files from Edius Neo timeline and then use My DVD to build the final product without re-encoding my files...

Since m2p is not the DVD standard it will be recoded to the required mpeg2 format.

Make sure your files are .MPG with audio. Bitrate that is between 3Mbps and 9Mbps with AC3 audio. Beware that MyDVD does NOT support surround sound and will be transcoded to stereo. So far I've been fairly lucky with smart render with the exception of only a few files which I couldn't figure out why they wouldn't smart render.

 

Also double check the MyDVD project settings so they match interlaced or progressive.
