Will DVDit Pro HD Work for Me?


dj7675

Question

I am trying to find out if DVDit Pro HD will do what I need before I purchase. I am new to all of this, so I apologize ahead of time for the newbie questions:

 

-I record satellite HD programming. It records as either .ts or .mpg formats. Can I use this software to edit/burn it to Blue Ray disc? Also, if the file size is less than 9.4GB can I just burn it to a dual layer DVD (which are obviously much cheaper). My goal is to be able to burn these movies to disc and then be able to play then in a blue ray player such as a PS3. On a side note, the video won't have to be transcoded will it (which I hear takes a lot of time).

 

2-I am going to be getting the Cannon HV20 HDV camera. Will I be able to use this software to edit footage from this camera?

 

3-Does this software Burn the video to disc, or do you need additional software to burn it to disk after it is edited?

 

Thanks,

 

Darin

1) there have been a number of conversations on the AVS Forum, Blu-ray Forum and DVInfo.net about HD satellite to BD. I would search them out and read them so you know what you need to do. in some cases, users are using a product called Video Redo to change the headers of the MPEGs (from 1920x1088 to 1920x1080) and to clean up the video. I am not sure about the transcodes but I believe that cleaned up video will pass through.

 

2) HD editing needs to be done in something like Avid, Final Cut, Premiere or Vegas

 

3) DVDit Pro HD outputs to hard drive or to disc

Thanks for the replies. Very helpful. I do use videoredo all the time to clean up video and do basic cutting but have never done any "real editing".

 

Also, can I burn HD video to a regular d/l DVD? If yes would these be playable in a PS3 also?

 

Thanks for the quick response.

BDMV on DVD-R does not appear to be currently supported on the PS3. Users are, however, having success with BDMV content on DVD-R on the Panasonic BD player and on the Sony BD player. A recent user here did report good success in burning a volume to a dual layer DVD+R disc and playing it in the Sony with no visible layer break.
