Dear Community,

Since the official end of Encore I have been looking into using TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6, which many in the Encore forums recommended, to author some DVD's from video exported from Premiere Pro. According to my brief reading through the forums it appears this program is similar to Encore, easier to use but with less functionality, especially with editing menus.

I was previously using this tutorial for authoring in Encore - Is there any way to make a DVD through Premier Pro CC 2017?

To my understanding TMPGEnc doesn't take separate audio and video, and the audio sounds terrible when I import the M2V file format.

What is the best setting for exporting from Premiere Pro to author a DVD in TMPGEnc (looking for best possible quality)? And is the tutorial author correct that DVD should not be progressive? The Adobe Help file on the subject has "NTSC Wide Progressive" selected.

Thanks,

Chris

To my understanding TMPGEnc doesn't take separate audio and video, and the audio sounds terrible when I import the M2V file format.I can import .m2v and .wav without any problems in Authoring Works 6. The audio sounds great in app and on the authored disc. In Encore you are required to choose both files when you import but in Authoring Works 6 i can just select the video file and the audio for the video imports as well.I use the MPEG2-DVD exporter in Premiere Pro.

If your source footage is interlaced the export to interlaced too, otherwise export to progressive.

Setting: mpeg2-dvd with multiplexer to DVD. This will give you one mpg file.

Thank you - the audio did load with the video as you said. The audio quality is likely a problem with my sound card. Thanks for everyone's responses.

When exporting H.264 Blu-ray from Premiere 14.7 the video and audio are not multiplexed.  However Authoring Works 6 has a feature to Multiplex the audio and video.  Does Authoring Works reincode the video when creating a Blu-ray disc?  Also, if I create an MPEG2-DVD does Authoring Works reincode the video?

Authoring Works 6 does not reincode MPEG2-DVD or H.264 Blu-ray.

You don't need to muliplex in AW6.

If you import the video (.m4v) the audio automatically comes along.
