  • AVCHD HD on standard DVDs

    Can E5.1 burn a HD timeline onto a standard DVD either using Mpeg2 HD or AVCHD to be played in a consumer blu ray player?

    I dont mean to make an SD DVD from HD project I mean to make a HD playable DVD in a blu ray player

    Outside of specialised media players (KISS, Ziova) or possibly a PS3, I don't know that standard consumer BD players support this..

      Early players didn't but most new players now do. Latest PS3's do too.

      Corel DVD MF and Sony DVD Architect Pro 5.0 supports writing these discs.

        I tried to find a way to do this and failed - there is a thread in the FirecoderBlu forum. All I could get onto DVD out of Edius is SD output.

        The software that came with my camera (Panasonic HDC-SD100) called HDWriter claims to be able to copy AVCHD, without changing format, onto an SD card or DVD. I have not done this yet. My only attempt to burn to dvd failed because HDWriter did not recognise the files even though I had captured them to my hard drive using HDWriter.

        I will try again, but first I think I need to reinstall the HDWriter software and recapture my AVCHD clips.

          ive done this HD-DVD burning loads of times with the above mentioned s/w - u need to keep bit rates about 19mbs then you can get about 20mins of HD video onto a DVD.

          Shame Edius cant do this - would have been another USP
