    Mydvd Freezes

    I tried it last night and would consider it a success. However, I did have some problems with the BD-RE. I canceled the first attempt just as it was starting because I wanted to add something. When I tried to start it again it asked if I wanted to erase the disk. I clicked yes and it looked like it started to erase it, but it keeps getting hung up during the erase process. Any ideas? Is there another way to erase/format the disk without using Roxio?

    Thanks so much for your help!! I'm going to pick up some BD-RE and try it this weekend. I'll let you know how it works!

    Mydvd Freezes

    Under the hood I have Windows 7 Home Premium , Service Pack 1, Installed Memory (RAM) 2.00GB, Processor: Intel Xeon CPU 3.20 GHz, Display Adapter-NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450/4000 SDI, Asus BW-12B1ST ATA burner, Roxio Creater 2012 Plus. When I was creating the movies I was writing the files to a 3TB WD portable hard drive. Maybe that contributed to the length? Now that I have the Folderset, I'm assuming I use Burn Data Disk to burn it do a BD? Do I select add folder and pick the folderset, or do I add files from the files in the Folderset (my DVD, BDMV, Certificate or Sonic)? If that's the case, which files do I use?

    Maybe 2 hrs for a 40 minute video. I haven't been timing it. Just seems like a long time.

    I am trying it right now. It looks like its working but it is taking a very long time to encode the movies. Is there a way to speed that up and if this works, then what file do I select to burn it onto the BD.

    It doesn’t give me the option to ignore it. As soon as you click on the box it says that the program is not responding. It doesn’t seem to be time related.

    It did work with one clip, creating a folder set. I did notice that the Burn Project window first popped up saying "not responding" but then another window opend up underneath it and it completed the project. What does that indicate?

    Mydvd Freezes

    I am trying to burn a Blu-ray disk. I can view the individual clips in the production in Videowave. I then save the production and send it to myDVD to burn. Whenever I try to burn or preview the movie it freezes up. I am using Creator 2012 and have downloaded the hd plugin. I checked my system with Cyberlink BD advisor. Everything passed except the software player and the video connection type. It did suggest an upgrade for the graphics card (NVIDIA Quadro FX 3450/4000 SDI). However, I have no intention of playing Blu rays on the computer. I just want to burn them onto the disk so that we can watch them on the HD tv w/Blu ray player? I'm fairly sure the Blu ray burner is working because I was able to burn a regular DVD to it and it played fine. Any thoughts?

    Ready To Make A Hd Movie

    o I decided to install a Blu-ray burner. I just tried to burn a HD DVD, but MyDVD crashes. I know the burner works because I successfully burned a regular DVD. Any thoughts on where to start to fix this?

    Are Rosewell DVDs comparable to the others that you mentioned?

    Ready To Make A Hd Movie

    Thanks for the link. I looked real quick on Best Buy, but didn't think about Newegg. I have Roxio Creator 2012 plus. I took some video on the FXP setting which recorded at 1,920 x 1080 and it looked great on the TV when I played it right from the camera. My goal is to make a DVD that will look the same as when I played it right from the camera. I want to limit the compression. I think I need to get the Blu ray plug in, a burner and of course 25 GB blank DVD's. Should that do it? Anything else I should be aware of when picking out a burner or media? We've got a trip to Disney and I want to make sure I can burn high quality disks for the Grandparents when we get back. Thanks for your help.

    Ready To Make A Hd Movie

    Actually, I had seen than post that you provided the link to. I am just looking for confirmation that all I need to get is a blu ray burner and I'll be able to do what I want before I drop $200 on a burner.
  14. With our Canon Vixia HFM41 and Roxio I am ready to start burning HD movies. I've done some research and it's a bit overwhelming with all of the information on the web. I think all that I need is the HD plug-in and a dual layer blu ray burner, which I have not purchased yet. Am I heading in the right direction?

    Video Compression

    I am trying to create the highest quality videos possible from mini dv tapes. I captured the video using a firewire and saved them as an .avi file which resulted in a 12 gb file. I am saving them to a 3tb hard drive so space isn't a problem yet. Is there a way I can save the file to a hard drive to reduce the compression that Roxio uses when it formats it to fit onto a dvd. I understand that when I put the file on a dvd it will compress it (fit to 4.7gb), but I'd like the option to watch the movie from a harddrive at the highest quality. possible. In other words, how to I create a high quality video file which I can play direclty from the hard drive?
