Question

I must admit I must agree with this individual who is having problems creating a br dvd. I had thought that when I added a movie this would be a chapter and that they would be played in order that they were added. I see that this is not the case but I see this as a gui problem on Roxio part. I am programmer and have been for over 30 years and have some experience in this. I will look at the faq on this but still think that the DVD and BRDVDs should work the same way as each other. this would be more intuitive. Also I have a ver y fast computer, i7-975, 6 gigs of mem, 1/4 tera of ssd disk and a high end ATI card so its pretty fast system. When I burn a blue ray diskl i take all the mts file I want in a chapter and create high quality MPG. The total size of all the chapters ( I know im useing the wrong term or at least implementing them wrong) fills about 2/3 of the disk. How long should it take to create a blue ray image file from this?? it seems to take about 10 hours ( with 2nd pass enabled and hardware assit on) its this correct ?

 

Again I would suggest a change in the structure of blue ray dvd creations to be more like regualr dvd creation.

Not sure what you mean by that. As far as the menu is concerned, there is no difference in creation in Creator 2010. How the info is written to the disc is totally different. File structure, file types and UDF file system are different.

 

Although apps like MyDVD can help make DVD/Blueray easier, the user should still at least take some time to learn the application , terminology and basics of what they are trying to accomplish. As the old saying goes, "You need to learn how to walk before you can run." Too many users just want to jump in and burn a DVD without really knowing anything about how a DVD really works. In fact, there are tons of users that really need to take basic computer lessons first. Simple things like right mouse button clicking or navigating Explorer to find a file gets them totally lost. No one seems to read manuals or even Help files any more. They always seem to blame the software when it's really operator error.

Correct, wrong term. Putting a bunch of video together as one just creates another video file or movie. That is all it will ever do.

 

Chapters refer to a 'point' in movie that the viewer can jump to using the Remote Control 'skip' button. Nothing more - nothing less. Chapters is not a file and never will be. It's an imaginary point WITHIN a movie. There is ONLY ONE WAY to create chapter 'marks' in MyDVD and you have a choice to create a submenu or not.

 

Now if you insist on putting more than one Video on the main menu, there is an option to play one after the other, but those would not appropriately be called 'chapters'. Those are more like TV show episodes on one DVD. Completely separate Movies that you are playing one after another. You might be able to use the Remote Skip button, but only because you have defined the end action to play the next movie. Personally, I haven't tested this so I'm not sure if that works.

LOL some might be put off a bit by your no nonsense approach to help but I find it refreshing now a days. I think hobbyist using blueray have a very different goal in mind then the feature film people. Let me present a scenario. I was recently in Tanzania and climbed Kilimanjaro and took a 4 day Safari .

A have a couple hundred film segments from this trip all in m2ts format. I broke out these film segments into each day and made one mpg file of each day. I also had two slide show one for the safari and one for the climb also made into mpg.

The DVD

The main menu screen lets you select Climb or Safari. Each points to a sub menu.

On the safari sub menu I added three movies corresponding to each day of the safari, Ngorongoro,LakeManyara etc and the slide movie.

My hope was that I could make a BlueRay that allowed the watcher to select just one of these days and it would play this and following days and then it would return to Safari page. The Kili submenu is similar.

With DVD you can do this but with BlueRay you cant.

 

Any ideas

You would need to explain why you can't. I see no reason why you shouldn't be able to do that. However I would approach the problem a bit differently.

Instead of three separate files, combine these into one ON THE MAIN MENU. Then add Chapter marks at the beginning of each day and have MyDVD create the submenu for you.

 

The button on the main menu can then be renamed to 'Climb' or 'Safari'. When the last item plays, it will take the view back to the main menu or submenu depending on how you set 'After Play'.

 

(PS There seems to be an issue using the Unlinked Button in Bluray/AVCHD projects. I assume that is what you are referring to in the first statement?)

Yeah over dinner last night your idea was the consensus approach and I will implement it to check it out tonight thanks.

 

Sorry if this got off topic I thought this was a Blue Ray issue since my regular DVD form of this works fine. the original author of this thread was having the exact same issues it seemed. I thought I was just laying out the problem the he had with my movies and ideas instead.

Not a problem. Yes it your issue is very close but it becomes impossible to try to sort out 2 separate discussions in one thread, so it is much better to split them.

 

For example you did not answer Gary's question about the unlinked button. So If he posts, "You didn't answer my question", how do we know who it is addressed to? Very confusing!

 

Now for my questions – did you try taking your DVD Project in MyDVD and simply clicking on File – Change Project Type – Blu-ray?

 

You do have some RE to play with?
