  • Edius Burn to Disc - Auto settings or custom?

    I have up till now allowed Edius to use the automatic settings when making an SD DVD with Burn to Disc.

    I notice that others prefer a setting of CBR (instead of VBR) and AC3 audio (instead od MPEG1), the defaults.

    I appreciate it might be a case of "try it and see", but what reasons might there be to not use the "auto" mode?

    I always change it to VBR and set min 4, ave 6 and max c8.5, two pass VBR to me gives batter results.

    I got fed up with club members making DVD's that used standard settings so I produced a number of MPG files of the same short sequence which had plenty of pans and zooms, each with different settings used and the difference amazed them.

    Do take care if you try to make Blu-ray, mine fail in Edius and at £2 each it makes expensive coasters, export as an image file and use IMGBURN (freeware) to make the disc, IMGBURN works the best I have come across with DVD and Blu-rays

      The default "auto" setting that I see is already VBR with MPEG 1 audio

      How do you change it to min and max bit rate? I can only see the option for average and max.

        all DVD players must support ac3 and wav

        DVD player makers are no longer required to support mpeg audio, NTSC players never have and many Pal players did support mpeg audio at one stage but I would not count on it now

        Edius does not do dual pass and you can't set min bitrate, as a result, I would only use CBR in order to avoid buffer underrun errors caused by bitrate dropping too low in black sections

          Thank you Anton for clarification.

          Why then does Edius have MPEG audio as the default if that is not a good idea?

            I already reported this to be fixed, I don't know when

            if you start an NTSC project and start the disk burner, you will see that it correctly defaults to dolby digital

              This comes a quite a surprise that I have been using a possible "wrong" setting for some time.

              I trusted Edius to have the best default settings.

              Hope this has been corrected in 6.03?

                I always change the audio to AC3 and leave the video on auto personally - purely on the basis that if you can do AC3 why not. If you have a timeline with 6 audio tracks of more it will default to 5.1 AC3 with EDIUS 6, so it only does MPEG audio when on a stereo track. I don't know if it will change on 6.03, but wish it would.

                    Thanks David,

                    I need to buy your training DVD !! :)

                    I think that's why I find the reference manual so useless at times....it might tell you how to do things...but not why.

                        I still prefer to use Procoder 3 for my mpeg2 outputs. It gives me 3 settings
                        MAX, MIN, and AVERAGE. Setting the min is very important for the scenes with black or titles. Don't exceed 8 on max(I usually use 7700 for video and the rest is audio). Then your average can be 6.

                        Being Edius does not offer this, CBR is your best bet as Anton said. Your other option is to export to an HQ file and import into PC3 or TMPGE. Or, you can purchase the TMPGE Mpeg2 converter plugin that allows you to export by way of the timeline.
                        Using CBR will use more space than VBR, but it is the only game in town.
