HD Footage Onto Regular DVD?
on Aug 27, 2011 at 4:47:41 pm

Hey Everyone,

I have a music video for a client lasting 4 minutes 30 and it is a 1920x1080 equence in final cut pro 7. I was wondering if it would be posible to get this footage onto a regular DVD for HD playback on a blu ray player. I have final cut studio (Including compressor and DVD Studio pro) and the Adobe Master Collection (Including Media encoder). I can compress/Trascode the finished movie to H.264 Blue ray. IS there a way of getting this onto the DVD as HD Footage.

Thanks for your time

Yes - Using Compressor:

Create a preset resembling this:

and another preset resembling this:

These are what is needed for AVCHD on DVD. Drag your clip into Compressor into a job. Drag these presets onto the job. Click on the job and go to the Job Action tab and set it up like this:

This tells Compressor that you want to create the "Blu-Ray" on a regular DVD. Make sure to select your DVD burner in the dropdown and put a blank DVD in the drive.

If all goes correctly, your file should compress to the AVCHD spec (AVCHD video / AC3 audio) and burn to disc.
