Export Selection For Hd

Question

Quick question on Export from VideoWave. I am working with the new 12 version of Roxio and now see too many options for my exporting of game films (you helped this morning with my editing questions - thanks). I am filming in HD and want to keep that same quality for the burn so people can watch the games in HD. These clips are running about an hour so I am trying to keep the file size to 3GB. RIght now, when I use AVCHD 1440x1080/60p (a new option for 12), the files are just massive. Any suggestion for a good extension option that keeps the high quality of the filming (coaches and players want to be able to view on 60" screens like ESPN and see details).

One quick question first. How are you planning to play those AVCHD files? Yes, HD files are large. That is one of the reasons that blu-ray discs - 25 and 50 Gb were invented ! What equipment is going to be used to play those high definition videos? If a projection, what is the capabilities of the projector - 1080 or 720. or standard resolution 480?

 

Remember that true HD is available only from burned blu-ray discs, AVCHD discs (about 40 minutes per single sided disc) or play the files that are on a computer.. The first one requires a blu-ray burner and player, the second requires a blu-ray player. Anything else would be standard definition of 720 by 480.

 

In this case, how you are going to use and play the videos dictates what the output should be?

I plan to maintain the files on a data server that people will download and view on their computers. My hope is to also keep them in a HD format so that anyone can break them up if there is a highlight that someone wants to use personally. For those who request a physical copy to watch on a TV, I will burn them a BlueRay version but right now everyone seems content with just downloading and watching on computers or through bigger monitors attached to computers. My restriction is the ability to upload the files to the server and some timing-out issues that seem to exist on files bigger than 2-4GB. Ideally, I would have each file in the 1-2GB range for 30 minutes of game film.

 

I am still trying to just get some understanding of the multiple export file options and which ones make sense. Is there a single resource page that gives a little detail to each of the file export options? Also, looking for a recommendation on which one is appropriate.

 

Thanks,

C2012 Pro?

 

I've been saving video to my hard drive with this and I'm pleased.

Yes, working with the latest and greatest and just wan to make sure that whatever my export format is, the end user can easily view the film on either a PC or Mac. I have traditionally used mp4 extensions but I am open to any other solution that makes sense.

A quick question on this DIVx program - is this used in lieu of the making of a movie (through VideoWave export) or does this action get done after the export is complete? I am not familiar with this program.

After you've made your production in videowave at the best quality you want.

 

Compatible with windows and a mac?

 

You would have to ask a mac person because apple has did everything they can think of to make it completely different than windows.
