I use 3D Studio Max at work but want to get into better quality, professional looking animations, that can be put on to High Volume DVD. What's the best software solution for this? I've heard that professionals often render a sequence of MPEG stills, and then piece them together in Adobe Premier. Also, what about sound editors? Is Cool Edit Pro good enough?
Do I need to use a compositor?
What format do I need to end up with, and how to put it to DVD?
