Roxio Creator Nxt Blu Rays Help

Question

I want to put things on Blu Ray which aren't in HD, I want to put them in 4:3 Format, it won't let me do the project in 4:3 format. I was wondering is there a program with does both 4:3 Format and 16:9 format for Blu Ray? My project is too big for DVD, Blu Ray 50 GB Discs has plenty of space. I was wondering if Roxio would make the next update for blu ray both 4:3 Format and 16:9 Format so we have a choice. I can put old shows which were in 4:3 Format on Blu Ray in 4:3 Format if Roxio had that option. Then for modern shows which are in 16:9 Format I can put it in 16:9 Format.

This produce seems to where Roxio's don't. I have contacted Roxio to make sure in the future that Roxio does it in both formats for Blu Rays. In general I do like Roxio, but in this case I will have to buy this produce from another company as it says it does 4:3 on DVD and Blu Rays which is what I want.

Bill, you didn't give us any chance to reply. Your post is about filling the screen with both a 4 by 3 and a 16 by 9 video.

 

I have made blu-ray DVD that contained both 4 by3 and 16 by 9 project with no issues. I believe that I created a 16 by 9 project and overlayed the 4 by 3 video to fit inside the 16 by 9 frame. I then used Video Wave to render the project to high definition mpg2. I pust all the videos, both 4 by 3 and 16 by 9 on a single blu ray disc using Create DVD -Advance. It has been awhile since i did that and I gave the disc away afer I double checked to make sure it played on a blu ray player. I don't remember anyhting else about it.

 

You could always do as I suggested and burn the entire project to a re-writable blu ray disc just in case.

 

I have several video editing programs and don't know one that does it without some juggling.

OK Bill your question falls in the category of 'I don't know anything about it but it must be easy'... :lol::D:lol:

 

What you are asking is impossible!

 

Ratios are mathematical laws and nothing can violate them :huh:

 

You can Crop them or you can stretch and distort the image but otherwise, you can't have a 4:3 picture on a 16:9 format without borders!

 

Nor can you have a 4:3 BD or AVCHD Project - no such animal exists nor will it ever exist...

 

You can slap almost 13 hours of video onto a 50 GB BD disc by simply lowering your quality to a mere 1280 X 750 @ 15 Mbps... Not too shabby and likely way better than any source file you have ;)

 

Just change the Quality to EP.

 

You do know that Rewritable discs are not considered permanent??? The dye will fad over time and they become unreadable :o

 

If your Project is something you want to keep, only use quality R media ;)

OK so I could convert the episodes of The Bill onto 16:9 Format, but on my Blu Ray Player they are like 4:3 Format in a 16:9 shape, if i zoom twice it is in full screen.

If I did the episodes in 16:9 Format could I TV Safe Zone the episodes only but not the Menu? I have 16:9 TV, I would say most people would do these days.

I did try it out on 16:9 Format but the episodes were smaller than the special menu I made. I made the menu from video back ground in 16:9 Format, menu background was perfect but episodes were like 4:3 Format in 16:9 shape. Is there a way I can TV Safe Zone those episodes only?

I selected Fit To Screen and it seems to be good.

Yeah I noticed that once the project was finished. I will try and convert those files from 4:3 format to 16:9 format then fit to screen and hopefully they won't be cut of top and bottom?

 

If it doesn't then I will just put them in 4:3 format and put up with the black border on left and right.

With the overlay method, you can select any kind of image or color panel to replace the black border.

Cheers. I'm really new at doing blu ray projects. I'm learning.
