View Full Version : From LW to DVD

06-09-2004, 05:24 AM
I didn't find a clear answer to my problem:

what would be the procedure from:
- creating animations in LW 7.5, export .RLA
- get the RLA's in After Effects and do the post production work

I don't know what format to create the animation (not sure of 768x576)

I have no idea of the output format from AE, I mean I know it has to be MPEG2, but how???

(optional question 4:3 to 16:9???)

If someone would suggest a good step by step procedure...

1st thing is, are you PAL or NTSC??


What I do is I set my frame size to 720x480. But it doesn't have to be a set size unless you just want to display it to TV.

Then I save the sequence as an uncompressed avi file. Some app (I am not familiar with AE) give you a couple uncompressed options, I just use the one the looks visually better.

Then I use a program like TMPGEnc to compress my avi files into Mpeg2 formats since alot of programs don't do that for you.

Then I open a DVD authoring program and create my DVD. Keep in mind some programs offer a compressor in the application so u can skip the above step.
