You can make either high definition AVCHD discs or blu rays with this program. Both could be 1080p (or i) or somewhat less. Does the Hero do 4K video? This program will not handle/output that but you would need other hardware to play that. Have you looked at the prices for 4K TVs?

 

An AVCHD disc is a high definition video burned to standard DVD media using a standard burner. It requires a DVD player that would be able to play that type of disc. Not all blu ray players have that ability. Your computer should be able to play them. The downside of it is that since it is using high definition files, you can get about 40 minutes on the disc.

 

A blu ray of course requires a blu ray burner, blu ray media, and your blu ray player or computer. There is space for lots of hours of video.

 

Both look pretty much alike when played. I don't see any difference.

 

With that digital camcorder, you could just copy from the memory stick directly to your computer for editing; no need to worry about capture. What is the format for that Hero camcorder? I could look it up but you already have that information.

 

Edit, never mind , it is is The file format is MP4 and uses H.264 compression.

 

What laptop are you considering.? Spend the $$ to get a good blu ray gaming laptop. Get a 64 bit OS (W7 or W8), at least 12mb memory, and a large hard drive (plus some extrenal storage). Don't cut corners. If you post a couple of candidates in your price range we could point out the pluses and minuses. Are you sure you want a laptop or would you consider a desktop or desktop replacements (very heavy laptop).

 

I like Dell, check their refurbished store for what they have. Other manufacturers have equality good options.

hi

thankyou.looking at second hand gaming laptops,a h/p dv6700-dv6920,intel 2.0ghz,250gb hdd,3 gb ram,windows 7(64 bit).i want a lap top so i can do it at work!(get more time there than at home!!)

i would be happy with high def as like you said u cant really tell the difference and going down the full blue ray line seams to complicated/expensive.what soft where would you recommend,what make of h/d dvd discs.i dont know/understand what a 4 k video is or 4 k television,the tv i have has a excellant picture,more than happy with it.

 

thankyou

I don't think you would be happy with that choice. Keep looking.

 

That is a very marginal processor, anything you do with it will be very slow and may give you sync issues. You'll need more storage, more memory (why only 3G with 64 bit W7)? Does it have a blu ray burner? You'll need that.

hi

thanks.

yes it is blue ray(will play blue ray).it is a 2.0ghz dual core.iam not going to store my movies on the lap top,just edit then burn them.i could store them on a memory stick if needed?

 

kind regards

chris

 

I have a HP dv6 similar to those specs you listed. While it works fine for standard video, forget about using it for any real HiDef/BluRay video. The small display will also give problems. Since memory sticks are in the FAT format you cannot store files greater then 4GB on them. You would have to convert USBs to NTSC format first.
