Record Setting Compatible With Videowave & My Dvd

Question

I am about to shoot some videos with my digital camera for the first time. The camera is capable of shooting AVCHD with five choices for 1920 x 1080. It can also shoot in MP4 file format, but would prefer using AVCHD format.

 

There are five AVCHD shooting formats to choose from;

 

60i 24M, 60i 17M, 60p 28M, 24p 24M and finally 24p 17M

 

Which one or how many of the above listed formats are compatible with VideoWave and MyDVD? Would perfer using either 60p 28M or 24p 24M. According to the info contained in David Busch's photography guide, 24p 24M setting produces the most cinema-like appearance in the final movie image. Both of the above use progressive scan.

What file format are you going top output it to in videowave?

 

Are you going to burn it to a DVD disc?

It will be burned to a DVD using AVCHD. From the list you provide in the screen shot, it certainly shows a number of settings that the digital camera can accommodate. Is the 1920 x 1080/24p setting the same as 24p 24M (FX)? According to the specs of the camera this setting captures high quality video at a rate of 24 fields/frames per second, captured progressively at a 24Mbps capture rate. This is what I would like to attain.

Do you have a BluRay player? If not then there is no point in creating an AVCHD DVD since such a DVD can only be played on a BluRay player.. Also remember that a DVD can only hold about 40 minutes of AVCHD video at best quality.

Does your BluRay accept a USB stick? If yes, you could experiment with different seetings and render to a video which you then copy to the USB and play on the BluRay player. If you are happy with a setting you could then burn the DVD.

 

If you are not creating menus (and can play through the BluRay) , I would bypass the DVD completelyand just use aUSB stick. In fact more and more HD TVs are able to play from a USB sticks. Unfortunately, you cannot as yet create DVD like menu structures on a USB

The pic I posted is from Creator 2011 Pro.

 

You have the same as original, option, as export as available.

 

 

Is the 1920 x 1080/24p setting the same as 24p 24M (FX)?

 

I'm not sure what the 24p 24M (FX) is?

 

Check with the camera manufacture.

Your response does nothing to address my initial questions about what format is compatible or successfully works with VideoWave and My DVD. The reason for my question is that there have been forum questions related to video cameras where the type of video format does not work with VideoWave or possibly My DVD. Nor does your response answer my question about the AVCHD 1920 X 1080/24p setting as

shown in the list of possible settings being the same as 24p 24M (FX)? Can you answer this question? It would appear you don't know, or else why suggest experimenting with different

settings. Maybe someone on this forum can or can't answer my question.

Read post # 7.

 

Only way anyone could answer your questions in post #8 is if they had the same camera and experimented with those video files your camera makes.

 

I cannot answer that question.

Thanks for your response, cdanteek. My previous posting was directed to muguggi. To answer your question, the record setting "24p 24M (FX) captures high-quality video at a rate of 24 fields/frames

per second, captured progressively at a 24Mbps capture rate, and is said to produce the most cinema-like appearance in the final movie image. This is the most desirable setting to get the

smoothest-looking image for action shooting, which is what is expected to be encountered when I shoot the videos. In otherwords, there will be people that are moving and not static. Hope this

explanation is adequate.

You are correct to a point. Your setting will give you a movie (soft) appearance which is fine for slow moving scenes. High action video (people moving fast as in sports, car racing etc.) is better because it is sharper (more frames) so the computer doesn't have to interpolate between frames. If you get any artifacts when playing the video, it is either your player or the disc.
