I know I will get some odd remarks here, but I have always used DV PAL (widescreen) to export my videos ready for a DVD. But by doing this the file then needs to be transcoded for the DVD...
So, is there a codec better suited to put into an authoring program to a) speed up the authoring process b) reduce quality loss due to recoding/transcoding?
I know DVD's use MPEG2, but is it advisable to export as MPEG2 for DVD authoring?
p.s. I use Premiere Pro CS4 and for Authoring i use Encore CS4.
