Help! Am I Burning Hd Blurays Or Sd?




I'm relatively new to DVDit Pro HD and need some simple advice. I am cutting in Avid Media Composer v5.0 and exporting Quicktime Reference Files referencing 1080p/25 footage. I then need to create DVD (SD) and Bluray (HD) copies. First of all I burnt the DVDs and everything worked perfectly. So my next job is to burn the HD bluray copies. I go back into the same project and at the bottom left of the screen change my disc option to BD-25 and then insert a blank BD-25 disc into the bluray burner. The remaining space on the disc is 20.3gb meaning that the content on the disc is taking up 4.7gb. When I burnt the DVD it took up the full DVD - 4.7gb. This makes me think that DVDit is going to burn the same SD version but to a bluray. I've tried changing the settings under file>project settings>HD transcoding but this doesn't seem to effect the amount of data that is going to be written to disc which is shown in the very bottom left of DVDit.


Do I have to tell DVDit that I want it to be HD. I can't seem to find a way of knowing for sure that what will be produced will be HD. My original footage is definitely HD.

Please see DVit! HD Pro's manual, page 42: http://forums.support.roxio.com/topic/14112-dvdit-manual/

I edit with Edius 6.0.6 and I export HD video and audio files according the settings before I choose at DVDit! HD Pro (manual, page 42: 24p, 25i, and so on). I import the files to DVDit! HD Pro and I do Blu-ray authoring and I burn my Blu-ray disk.

If I want also a DVD I change to DVD and DVDit! HD Pro transcode my files to SD and I can burn my DVD disk.

You must do the same!

DVDit! don't do the upscalling for SD files to HD but it do very well the downscalling HD to SD!!!
