HD Video Assets
There are a variety of sources for HD video assets to use in your HD projects, with the
most common being DVCPRO HD and HDV camcorders.
• With DVCPRO HD, once you have finished editing the video, the result will need to be
encoded to the HD MPEG-2 or H.264 video format.
• With HDV, which is already compliant MPEG-2 HD video, you can edit the video in
Final Cut Pro and import the result directly in your HD projects.
Overview of Using DVD Studio Pro
DVD Studio Pro supports HD video encoded using the HD MPEG-2 codec and the H.264
codec. Both of these formats are playable with the Apple DVD Player. You can use
Compressor to encode video to either of these formats. When you import HD resolution
QuickTime video, such as DVCPRO HD video, into DVD Studio Pro, it is HD MPEG-2 encoded
using the integrated MPEG encoder.
