Capturing content for DVD

DVD content is compressed according to DVD specifications so that it plays reliably on a wide range of players. When preparing content for a DVD project, pay attention to frame size and frame rate, so that content retains its quality in the transition to DVD.

For best results, make sure that you capture or record according to these specifications:

Frame size

NTSC standard 720x480 or PAL standard 720x576. If your project uses a different frame size, Premiere Pro scales it automatically.

Frame rate

29.97 fps (NTSC) or 25 fps (PAL); alternatively, 23.976 (NTSC) for 24p. All footage in a single project must be of the same frame rate.

Aspect ratio

4:3 or 16:9 (widescreen).

Audio bit depth

16 bits.

Audio sample rate

48 kHz.
