    Burning High-Def Media

    I just finished editing a small project (a tandem skydive) that I want to burn a DVD or if need be a Blu-ray disc.

    The video is only about 10 or 12 minutes long, can you burn high def material to a stand DVD?

    My client says he doesn't have a Blu-ray player, but that his computer system can read several high-def formats.

    What's the best way for me to deliver a high-def project for my client?

    I've just recently been editing high-def (AVCHD from a Sony HDR-CX100) and doing a "Send to" - DVD - DVD One Step or Quick DVD Burn. In most cases a customer just wants a standard DVD of which the video quality is very good since it was originally shot in 1080i. But I'm sure I will have more customers real soon who wants their videos in high def. 

    Is there a simply way to do this without having to go through the Blu-ray authoring?

    Thanks,

    Terry

    If you have AvidDVD, export a QT ref and burn a standard-def DVD from the HD project.  AvidDVD will transcode it to SD.   The transcode is very good when starting with HD material.

    Re: Burning High-Def Media

    Thanks guys for your reply.

    I will have to check into Vimeo.

    Terry, I do have Avid DVD. I got the bundled software when I upgraded to Media Composer.

    As I stated above I've been using the "DVD One Step", which is very simple in order to burn a standard DVD.

    I'm pretty sure that the DVD One Step is transcoding the high-def project to SD when it burns the 
    DVD. I was just wondering if the project could stay in high-def when burning to DVD.

    Re: Burning High-Def Media

    If you've got the bundled software you've got Squeeze which has several HD presets for WMV, QT, and Mpeg4. You could export a QT ref (or do the "send to") to create a true HD file that would be viewable on a computer desktop or web (but not on a standard DVD player) then burn the file (if it's less than 4.5 gb) to a DVD as a data disc. Client could then pull the file off the disc to his desktop (or just play it off the disc if his opitcal drive is fast enough).

    I you need a "playable" DVD (instead of a file on a data DVD), then you've got to go Blu-Ray for high-definition.

    However, if you want to give your client high-def files on a data DVD, then any of Tugger's suggestions would work, or you can export a 1920x1080 Quicktime Movie directly from MC.

    Re: Burning High-Def Media

    I believe the OP is speaking of a "AVHCD disk" (hi def on dvd media which plays in a Blu Ray player)

    This is quite possible... you can even have menus...but you need a program that has the capacity to make "AVHCD disks". Most consumer level editor/author programs will do this.

    Re: Burning High-Def Media

    I've read that AVCHD on DVD data disc will not play on all Blu Ray players.  Since Panasonic and Sony worked together on AVCHD likely that many of their Blu Ray players will play AVCHD and I hear that Play Station 3 will also play AVCHD DVD data discs.

    If it's important to you that your clients can play your discs don't use non-standard formats.  You presumably wouldn't supply a customer a VCD instead of a DVD because CDs are cheaper.  Don't supply AVCHD discs either.

    Just my opinion...

    Re: Burning High-Def Media

    "AVCHD DISKS" work on just about ALL modern Blu Ray players now... it's the olders ones you have to watch for.

    You have to be careful with this 'hi def on dvd media' stuff though because there is the "avchd disk" which is widely accepted now, but there are also programs that produce Blu Ray structure on dvd media and these are not "avchd disks" and are not playable on all machines.

     

    The above is right however.... True Blu Ray disks are a promise as far as playback for a client is concerned. The avchd disk... well I wouldn't get into that unless you know for a fact that it will not present problems at the other end.

    Re: Burning High-Def Media

    Is there a suggested workflow for these AVCHD disks using MC5/Avid DVD/Sorenson.

    Thanks
