BDMV on BD-RE playback on PS3


southcliff

Question

Hi All,

 

I know this is not a new topic by any means... but I'm new to DVDitProHD and the whole Blu-ray thing - and I need to deliver a 90 minute approval disc tomorrow. It must be able to play on PS3 with latest software.

 

The show was shot in 720p 59.94. When I author and burn the disc onto BD-RE they will not play back on my new PS3.

 

Can anyone please tell me what it takes to make this work? I was told by Roxio that I don't need any patches for DVDitPROHD because I just downloaded and installed it a few weeks ago. Is this true? I'm using the Pioneer 202 burner, and TDK BD-RE's.

 

Thanks much for any clues at all...

----------------------------------------------------------

First: I have made several blu-ray disc using DVDitProHD that do play on my playstation3 with firmware 2.10.

I use the Sony BD-RE 2.11/2.0 discs and the Sony BDRW BWU-100A with firmware 1.0e.

 

 

Question: does the disc play in your computer? I use Cyberlink PowerDVD for playback.

 

Question: did you burn to "volume" first and then burn the "volume" to a blu-ray disc? If yes, does the volume play on your computer?

My description of the playback as "steppy" may be misleading.

The step is more like a dropped or skipped frame every 5 - 15 seconds.

Doesn't matter if there is motion or not.

The audio does not skip.

Both picture and sound somehow manage to stay in sync.

I've tried upper field, lower field, and single field versions of the source material.

All have the same results.

Any other ideas?

 

 

Have you check to see if the field order match what DVDit expects? If they don't match to what you encoded, it will look fine on stationary scenes but when the camera pans it's like a strobe like effect.

 

Another thing you can try to do is to encode your clip @ 1080p.

Hi Tom,

 

That's great to hear (that it works!) I've tried burning from .iso, and from project and from volume. All burn successfully, but none is recognized by my PS3.

 

I've purchased the Cyberlink Ultra player, but haven't been able to download it yet... so I haven't been able to check playback with anything except the PS3.

Have applied the PS3 patch?

I've had the "steppy" video issue on all projects that I've created so far.

This includes a 3min. video clip as well as a 1hr. 40min. feature film, both at 1080i.

Tried encoding with Compressor with no better results.

 

 

That's great! It works! I was told I wouldn't need that patch because I just downloaded the most recent version - but clearly that patch is still necessary.

 

My new problem is that the video looks steppy. The quality is pretty good, but it looks like it is dropping a few frames once or twice per second. Any suggestions on that? I'm letting DVDit do the transcoding from an QuickTime with animation codec.

 

I have Sorenson and Compressor2. Do those do a better job of encoding?

 

Thanks again!

I use Compressor 3 on a intel mac and everything is working for me .... knock on wood....

When you tried Compressor, do you use the settings in the top part of this forum?
