How To Burn Bluray On Dvd

Question

Hi,

 

There are several references on the Roxio site that state Creator 2010 can burn BluRay HD content to DVD disc. I understand that AVCHD comes in to the equation here. I’ve tried to find some information on how to do this on the Roxio site and in the help files, but can’t find anything that helps to date.

 

I’ve two separate questions:

1. What are the steps required to perform this task?

2. What is the file structure of the resultant video on the DVD?

Hi,

I’ve tried to find some information on how to do this on the Roxio site and in the help files, but can’t find anything that helps to date.

How well do you know Creator 2010 Video Wave and MyDVD (Edit Video Advanced and Create DVD). It is the same process except in Create DVD, you select AVCHD.

 

Your blu-ray player must be able to play AVCHD discs. If it does, then we can continue the conversation. If it doesn't then is this an esoteric question?

 

An AVCHD disc is a standard DVD with hight definition video on it. It is burned using a standard burner. It is limited to about 40 minutes of video. Read this.

 

Why do you want to know the file structure?

Hi,

Many thanks for the information of how to produce a DVD with HD content on from “Video Wave”. I’ve actually managed to produce a DVD with HD content on it using the AVCHD menu in the “My DVD” application.

I’d previously been trying to undertake this task from the “Copy & Convert” application, using the custom settings. I was importing an m2t file and trying to export it as AVCHD file and then drop it onto DVD, the output being a 1920*1080 mp4 file. Having played around a bit more and actually produced a disc using “My DVD” it would appear that by trying to complete this task using “Copy & Convert” I’m barking up the wrong tree!

My question regarding the file structure was should I see a .mp4 file, or something resembling the structure of a BluRay disc with a BDMV folder and sub folders containing AUXDATA, Stream, Playlist etc. The AVCHD DVD I’ve created contains the later file structure and play perfectly on my Sony BDP-S370 player.

 

I’m actually very impressed with the Roxio Creator Suite. The tutorial videos are excellent. I appreciate you can’t put everything into the help pages and video tutorial, but perhaps Roxio could consider making a HD to AVCHD tutorial for other users such as myself?

That is correct. AVCHD on DVD is burned using the Bluray file structure and file system. These discs can ONLY be played back with a Bluray player.

Greetings from across the Pond again to all you guys I hold in awe.

Thanks to sknis' excellent tutorial I have produced a short AVCHD movie on a DVD,which I am more than pleased with.

Those who have helped me before will remember that I am a mere novice in all of this, so no groaning at my question please !

Which is - bearing in mind what I have done as detailed above is there any advantage in purchasing a BLU RAY writer and/or discs ?

1) Only slightly better quality than AVCHD.

 

2) More time on a blu-ray disc probably not very noticeable.

 

3) Helps the nation's economy.

 

I have all of the blu-ray equipment above but mostly make AVCHD. Any regular occasion can usually be shown in 40 minutes or so. I would use a blu-ray for a weeks holiday or several special occasions where you want them all together.

Thanks for quick response.

Love your point 3 but although now retired, think I already contribute more to the nations economy than 99% of the population !!!

And no doubt next year will be paying more for the Olympics which will be held 10 minutes from where I was born - but no chance of any tickets.

Another basic question - do I need a blu ray writer for a blu ray disc - imagine the answer is obviously yes !

Where is your home town ?

Yes, you need a blu-ray writer but the price of those is coming down. I actually bought a portable USB connected writer to be able to use it with more than one computer. I don't want to tell you how much I paid for it about 2 years ago. They are less than half price now. If you look, make sure it is not just a blu-ray ROM (read onlY) but a true blu-ray burner.

 

My hometown (born) is in western Pennsylvania (New Castle !) but I have lived in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Michigan and now in Friendswood, Texas (half way between Houston and Galveston Island). I don't think I missed any I was on work assignment in Kentucky for 2 six month periods but I don't call those living there.

 

PS I've been retired for almost 10 years so I know what you mean about supporting the economy.

Thanks for reply.

Think I will buy a burner as most productions are of holidays.

They are down to about £90 now so not too bad.

You have moved around a fair bit then. Nearest where we have been to your present abode is the Big Easy, did bus tour down from Atlanta - highly recommended !

Other than that the usual tourist spots - NYC Florida Keys Vegas California

Anyway thanks again - no doubt you will be advising me again at some future date !

Mick
