AVCHD - Blu-Ray


LAW
 Share

Question

I am new to Toast and would like to burn HD video to a standard DVD that can be played on a external Blu-Ray player attached to my HD TV. I have purchased Toast 10 and added the Toast 10 HD Blu-Ray plug-in and installed all of the updates.

 

My video camera produces AVCHD and I can see the video camera from Toast.

 

My question is what files do you select from Toast in that most appear to be grayed-out as you browse the video cameras file structure in Toast?

 

Do you copy everything in a folder, or, do you copy only specific types of files.

 

I would also like to have the steps as to how you would do this if you were using iMovie after you finishing editing the project.

 

Can anyone help on either or both of these procedures?

 

Thanks.

Will an AVCHD archive allow me to play the DVD on a Blu-Ray player?
Blu-ray players are not required to play AVCHD DVD-R discs, but the similarity to BD is such that many (my player included) do have this compatibility as an extra feature.

 

Do note that a DVD-R disc doesn't have room for long duration at HD bitrates. A conventional single-layer 12 cm DVD disc fits up to 50 minutes of AVCHD video at 12 Mbit/s data rate. At e.g. 18 Mbit/s you would obviously get less minutes (~33).

 

Or, do I need to create a Blu-Ray Video using a standard DVD?
My BD player plays either. Test it on a DVD-RW disc, or find a compatibility list in the player's user manual. Edited by theoldarchiver

I noted the steps that I take in producing a Blu-ray video on a DVD after editing with Final Cut Express in one of the threads here. The process with iMove should be similar. Check it out. I hope it works for you.
