    How to change video resolution in Adobe Encore

    I'm just downloaded a trial version of Adobe Encore 1.0 to try and burn some mpg's and avi files on to a DVD.

    However I'm running into a problem with some of the files because whenever I try to import them, Im getting an error message telling me that Encore couldn't import the file because "...the video files for this project must have a resolution of 720x576 or 704x576."

    Now the files I'm trying to import are smaller than this ... is there someway to change the setting in Encore, or do I need to resize my video files? Either way, could someone please tell me the best way to do this? Could I do that in Virtual Dub?

    Thanks alot for your help

    720x576 (pal) is the standard dvd resolution for europe...so you should go with that...and yup you will need to re-encode your files...you could go with the free edition of TMPG Enc IMHO one of the best free encoders around...it comes with predefined profiles for all major formats (including pal and ntsc dvd)...

    Excellent - thanks a lot for your help Ingoal. Just out of curiosity, will I need to process the sound separately or will TMPG Enc not alter it at all.

    Thanks again for your help - I'll try this this evening!

    TMPGEnc will encode the sound too...the result will be a video/audio-mpg2-file (.mpg) . If you want to process sound seperatly or want to put out different streams (.m2v - video / .m2a - audio) you would have to use another encoder...
