Creating 1080P Dvds

Question

I have Roxio 2010 special edition, and I'm going to buy a new HD camcorder, ( Canon VIXIA HF-M301, from Costco). My question is, can I create 1080p DVDs using roxio creator 2010?

I mostly use the 'Plug and Burn' method and sometimes I use the 'capture video' method.

How do I do this, Is there any options I need to change? My old sony camcorder has just broken, and I don't to pay to have it fixed.

Thank You all!

Do you have a blu-ray player that will play AVCHD discs? An AVCHD disc is a high definition disc- standard DVD burned with a standard DVD burner that can be played only on a blu-ray player that will play blu-ray discs. You can put about 40 minutes of video on an AVCHD disc. I assume that you want to play on a player and not just on your computer.

 

Other than the above, and a full blown blu-ray disc, you cannot put a high definition video on a standard disc. They are all converted to standard definition (760 by 480)

 

I'm not sure that Creator 2010 SE had the ability to burn blu ray discs without an add on. The add on is still available. Of course, you would need a blu-ray burner, blu-ray discs and a blu-ray player or a blu-ray reader on your computer and the blu-ray version of CinePlayer.

 

Other than making sure that your select 16 by 9 when you open video Wave (Edit Video -Advanced), there is no other real adjustments to be made.

 

That is a flash memory camcorder so all you have to do is plug it into your computer using the USB port and copy the files to a folder on your computer. You edit or burn from there. The camcorder records in MPEG4-AVC / H.264 format which is supported by Creator 2010.

Plug & Play will not work with that type of camcorder so you need to assess what you want your output to be - the things that Steve mentioned.

 

Then we can talk about some options to get them into your pc and on disc ;)

 

Thanks for responding!

 

I do not have a blu-ray burner or player. I just want the best quality video that I can get on my HD TV's.

I wish I knew more about this stuff!

 

My dvd players are Samsung, upconverting to 1080p units.

Thanks.

Sorry, you can make (and play) standard DVDs only. They will look slightly better than those from your old camcorder though.;)

 

Perhaps a blu-ray player for playing AVCHD discs for your next birthday or .......

Thanks for responding. Looks like I might need to get a blu-ray player.

 

(Actually... you can Burn an AVCHD with only a DVD Burner)

Where in MYDVD do you specify that you want to create an AVCHD disk?

Also, are these disks playable on a non blu-ray dvd player? I always share my family videos with others that don't have blu-ray players.

That might be a problem.

Thanks

Open MyDVD (Create DVDs, click on File/New Project, and you will see AVCHD in the list. An AVCHD disc can only be played on a Blu-Ray player.

I frequently burn about 40 minutes of AVCHD video to a standard DVD and then can play it on my son's Playstation 3. The quality is amazing. I have done this dozens of times over the last year.

 

Yes, looks pretty amazing. It is also good that PS 3 has a built in blu-ray player ! ;)
