Burning Dvd From Dvd Studio Pro

Question

Hi all - I am new to this forum and need your help.

I have a 9 minute video - edited in Final Cut Pro 6 - imported into DVD Studio Pro and I'm trying to burn with Roxio Toast 9. So far - with many attempts, I have not been able to burn a DVD that plays on both my computer and DVD player to TV. It will play on my desktop computer just fine - when I try to play it on my laptop, the music is very choppy (sounds like dust is on the disc - but they are brand new) and the music is sluggish. I have new updated computers - high speeds, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Then, when I put the disc in to a brand new HD DVD player, it says it can't find the audio.

 

Any words of wisdom, I would greatly appreciate. THANKS!

It's possible the DVD was encoded at too high a bit rate. Are you using AC3 audio from Compressor or the uncompressed PCM audio? If the latter then too high of a combined video and audio bit rate may be the issue. Many DVD players struggle with audio playback from high bit rate video DVDs.

Thank you... I'll try that. I had imported audio in MPEG3 at the beginning. Then, I "re-created" my DVD with DVDPro and changed the audio to PCM (looks like that was the wrong move). I will try what you said and see if it works.

Very frustrating - works great on the desktop - not on TV or laptop.

Hey tsantee,

 

If you have the time (which I'm quickly running out of)... will you give me the "step by step" way to burn my disc from using Final Cut Pro 6 - DVD Pro - Toast??? Maybe I'm missing a step. I have HD video - trying to output to HD DVD.

 

THANKS!!!!!!!

I need some clarification. When you mention HD DVD that is the extinct HD video disc format. Is that the kind of disc you want to burn or are you being generic and want a disc containing high definition video?

 

I have neither a high definition video camera nor a Blu-Ray DVD burner. Oh, and I also don't have Final Cut Pro. So you'll likely get better advice from the Final Cut Pro forum at discussions.apple.com and to check the tutorials linked at the top of this forum. Also, check for info in the Toast Getting Started Guide that opens when you choose Toast Help. Lastly, I recommend starting a new thread with your HD DVD question in order to get the attention of the users who are posting about the Blu-Ray experiences.

 

My understanding is you need to export your movie from Final Cut as a full quality Quicktime movie. It then can be added to Toast using the settings you prefer.

Yep - I'll do just that.

 

I have a DVD Sony FX1 - shot video in HD - uploaded it to Final Cut Pro - edited in HD - exported to DVD Pro and wanting to burn an HD DVD through Toast. That's what was recommended through Lynda.com (an on line training course which is excellent). But, in my case - I don't have enough "details" in order to burn a disc correctly.

 

Stupid question... Can we burn HD video on a regular DVD or does it specifically have to say "HD" on the DVD?

 

Thanks for your input. I do appreciate it and I'll flip over to another forum that deals with HD and Final Cut Pro.

 

Okay - looks like I had another LONG night!

 

I read my first sentence... and I have a Sony FX1 camera (not a DVD)!!! Sorry!

Maybe it will help if you explain what you have that can play your high definition DVD. Do you have an HD DVD player or a Blu-Ray player, or neither?

 

A high definition source movie looks very good when encoded to a standard definition DVD for playback on any DVD player. Toast can do that (as can DVD Studio Pro). But that apparently isn't what you want.

 

It is possible to burn a short high-definition movie to a standard DVD for playback on a Blu-Ray player. Here's the article that explains how to do this.

 

The only reason in my opinion to want to make high-definition video discs is if you want to share them with other people who have the ability to play them. If this is just for your to watch then it is best to get one of the hardware players such as AppleTV, LaCie LaCinema, Western Digital WD TV or Al Tech MediaGate. Connect that to your HDTV and watch your high definition videos without bothering burning them to disc.
