Uk Blu-Ray In America And Avc Vs Mpeg2

Question

Hi All I'm a bit of a newbie to all this Blu-ray stuff but have done some research and need a bit of help on some decissions.

 

First of all, I need to make a Bu-Ray in the uk (so it's 1080 50 progressive) it would be great to not have to convert to 30fps (or 29.97) will the 25 fps play in the states? and I presume that the menus are not made in some pal or NTSC SD format??

 

 

also for compatability and quality, what is the best format AVC or Mpeg 2

 

 

I know that this is an obvious question to many but as I say I'm a bit new to all this and need to make something that will play everywhere.

 

Thanks

Rog

I don't think you'll see much difference between MPEG 2 and AVC except that the latter takes less space. You might take a one-minute clip of an action scene or something with a lot of contrast and do a test. Choose Save as Disc Image. When that is done mount the disc image file and play the video using the Roxio Video Player.

 

I don't know what difficulties you may encounter with 25 fps because I'm in the U.S. and don't have any sources for that. Your tests will let you know. Let me know what you find out.

Indeed you are right, as these are only 3 minute long music promos, this is quite easy.

 

I think the Mpeg2 with the data rate wound up might have the edge but would be a tough call. I could see little or no real difference.

 

Just not sure which is better for compatability and the question of whether the 25fps and 30fps bit works.

 

My path to this point was files delivered as HD MP4 comverted in Ausoft to DVCPro 1080p 25 to edit in FCP then exported as DVCPro and the final conversion done quite nicely in my new Toast 11.
