Roxio's Process For Making An Avchd Disc.



This is my interpretation of Roxio’s recommended process for creating AVCHD files (movies) and burning them to standard DVDs for viewing on Blu-ray Players.

sknis helped me post this topic with the images.


March 2010




The following details the process that Roxio recommends for burning movies and slide shows in a High Def AVCHD format onto standard DVDs. The resulting DVD production can only be viewed on a Blu-Ray DVD player.


I've been in a six month dialog with Roxio and during that time I've tried numerous procedures that they have recommended without success. The process detailed below was provided to me on 1/23/10 by Roxio. I have successfully completed a slide show consisting of 180 digital pictures with music. The output is a high quality show.

I'm hopeful that others will try this and provide this thread with their observations. The following is prescriptive – don’t skip steps.


Open VideoWave and create your slide show and/or movie with transitions, music, and etc.

Once you’ve completed your production, select the settings below. Note that I selected the Desktop for the place to save the file for ease of locating it. However you can save the file (movie) to a location of your choice.

The program will render the production as an “mp4” file and save it to your selected location.

After the file has been created Close VideoWave and then open it again! Now select “Create a new production”

Now select “Add Photo/Video and open the production which you’ve just completed and saved. Importantly it will be an mp4 file (look in the black bar for your created mp4 video)

Now transfer the file (movie) from VideoWave to MyDVD for creation of the DVD.

When MyDVD opens select the “AVCHD” button and wait. Your transferred production will open

Go to “Project Settings” and select “Same as Original.” Importantly note that the file output cannot be larger than the capacity of the standard DVD (Note: About 40 minutes of video on a AVCHD is max.).

Now create your title page, select your button(s) etc. Once this process is complete, select “Burn Project to Disc…” and proceed to burn the AVCHD file to a standard DVD.

Once you’ve completed the burn there should be two files on the DVD. Following is a screen shot of the disc image and the properties of the BDMV folder that is burned.

If you are working with an mp4 file to start with:


Note: As an alternate to reopening Video Wave to add the mp4 file and then going to Create DVD from there, you could also open Created DVD and add the mp4 file directly.
