m2v to HD-DVD
on Sep 18, 2008 at 5:19:41 pm

i shot a movie in HDV 720p24 with a JVC HD100U.
The camera compresses the HD input from the CCD unto an mpeg m2v file, in order to use miniDV tapes as recording media.

So I was wondering... can I use directly the m2v file captured from the camera to burn an HD-DVD, or a Blue Ray DVD. If not... any solution?

I am trying to avoid Apple compressor (it generates noise on the blacks and movements)
and BitVice does not support HD sized footage yet.

Compression houses would charge $1200 for the first copy in Blue Ray of the project (87mins)...
please help!

Thanks for the help!

Check out Toast 9 and the HD-BD plug in. See my Posts....
It works for AVCHD files direct to the Blu-ray, It might work with your files, but the re-encoding does take a quality hit

Have a look at MPEG Streamclip from Squared5
