Setting the DVD Standard
You can choose from two DVD standards when you start your project: the original SD
DVD standard based on standard definition video assets and the new HD DVD standard
designed to use high definition video assets.
Most asset formats supported by SD-based DVDs are also supported by HD-based DVDs.
The exception is MPEG-1 video, which is not supported in HD projects. See
and High Definition DVDs
for more information.
There are two places to set the DVD standard—each is used for different circumstances.
