Hd Features

Question

Using the new 2009 product I was wondering if anyone has actually successfully:

1) gotten HD video off of their HD camera with the capture feature and it still be in HD format

2) been able to edit the HD video with videowave

3) burned an HD dvd onto a "legacy" dvd (you know the 4.7GB kind that only costs 20 cents)

4) actually watched it on either a) their pc, B) using a hd dvd player, or c) a playstation 3?

 

Feedback on ease/difficulty of these steps would be greatly appreciated - i.e. do you even notice that you are working with HD video when editing, etc.

 

My version 10 seems to satisfy my current needs, so the only reason for me to upgrade is to go the HD route. Your experiences of pain, suffereing, success, joy, etc. would be greatly appreciated and be helpful in making the upgrade decision.

 

thanks in advance

1 and 2, yes with ease. Yes, you will notice that you are working with HD. No trouble capturing but editing takes a little longer.

 

4) a) yes, there is a great difference. Also I have a std def upconverting DVD player and can see the Higher DEF on that player.

 

What camcorder do you have and what are your computer specs?

 

Prices of Blue Ray players that play AVCHD are supposed to drop by $100 soon. When that happens, I let you know. Do you have a blue ray player that handles AVCHD? Does the PS 3? No need to upgrade if you don't have something to play the disc with.

I don't have a Blu-ray player, but I will be trying out the new feature in MyDVD 11 to burn AVCHD to red laser discs. I should be able to play those back on my PC.

 

BTW, MyDVD does an excellent job of down-converting hidef to standard def video DVDs, too.

 

As for 1 & 2, like Steve I have had no problems with my Canon HV20.

BTW, Moonbeam, I see by the title of your thread, that you wanted non-Roxio employess to respond. Although no Roxio employee has responded to any of your past posts, your title has me wondering why not?

 

My non-Roxio employee comment was meant as a "half joke". I was wondering if the product was good enough such that "average guys like me" could get it to work, not just a Roxio employee who knew the 15 hoops you had to jump through.

 

Good to hear that "average" (no insult intended!) people are having success. Now I just need to convince the wife I need to spend the extra 100 bucks. I am hoping the improved digitial quality is enough of a selling point.

OK, show her this (link) - made with 2009. Video Taken using a Canon HV 30 Hi Def camcorder, edited in Video Wave, output to Hi Def WMV files and converted to Flash. That's two conversion to lessor quality and uploaded to a web site.

 

Note that this was at an aquarium with mood lighting so the water does have some effect.

 

This is not as interesting but the lighting is brighter and I'm only shooting through a couple inches of water. Same conversion process.

Looks very cool - my wife was very impressed as well.

thanks
