  • Output file for Blu-Ray??

    I'm planning to use Roxio HD pro for my Blu-Ray burns. In the past five projects I have saved my Edius timeline to "Canopus HQ avi" to my external hard drive. Do my saved files need further conversions to work in the DVD app. PS any further opinions on Blu-Ray software. (I've been using Roxio 9 Media creator for my standard DVD's and they look and work very well)...Gary

    I think you're okay as long as you render the file out to:

    1280x720p
    1440x1080i
    or full 1920x1080i

    I think Roxio will let these files 'pass through'. It still takes a while (especially for longer form content), but you'd be waiting many hours more (like 5-9) if the file didn't pass.

    Anything else - such as a native DVCPROHD file will most likely get transcoded by the Roxio program. Your footage will probably take a hit, and you'll wait 'til rapture for it to crunch through there.

    I thought I tried this successfully back in February. I've been saving my stuff as full HD files since - should probably try it again myself...

    Let us know and good luck

      Actually Canopus HQ files will not pass through. They will be accepted but they will be transcoded at build time. Only Mpeg 2 HD will pass through and you should check out this sticky thread in the ProCoder 3 forum first.

            Sorry, I'm considering Roxio's pro for HD, (I think it's called) or Encore. Currently I'm doing standard DVD's in Roxio Media 9, which works fine. Gary

              Don't quote me on this, but I don't think 1440x1080i is a native blu-ray format...So like the Canopus HQ, it will get transcoded at build time.

                1440 is fine for Blu-ray- no transcoding. Let's not continue this too much here, not really an EDIUS thing- but anyhow, I have Encore CS3 and DVDit PRO HD- either or at this stage but Encore has a few better features at present.

                  Well thats good to know ( I've read otherwise ) 1440i blue-ray compatable means less compression till the final product :)

                    Me too - and it was a surprise to find it work.
                    NB: 1440i still has to be Mpeg2HD and it doesn't mean less compression just no upscaling>less render time.
