If you have a short HD video (20 to 30 minutes) that you don't want to burn on a blu-ray dis, you can use DVDit Pro HD to write a High Def volume on the hard drive. Then with your DVD burner you can copy the data (folder "BDMV" and folder "CERTIFICATE") onto the DVD-R/RW. I had a short house inventory video done with the Sony AVCHD Handycam HDR-SR1. It was a 10 minute video, did my usual editing in EDUS 3.61, used Procoder Express, and DVDit Pro HD to authorize the HD volume. The Sony BDP-S1 played the disc with no problems. The Sony player thinks the disc is a formated AVCHD DVD. Please if you make one of these disc do not play it in a regular DVD player. It will hang the player up and lock the tray. The Bitrate was set for CBR 18000, I think that will give you 30 minute.
You can play this on the PC DVD burner/player if you have a program like PowerDVD 6.3 HD or 7.
