Understanding Blu-ray
on May 24, 2014 at 3:33:15 am

I'm never used Blu-ray before but I know it's for high definition video. I know DVD is for standard definition video.

Here is my question: since my projector is an XGA and has a native resolution of 1024x768, is it possible to burn my 1024x768 video to a Blu-ray disk? It's too big for a DVD but is it too small for Blu-ray? Essentially, I want to be able to play my video (which is between SD and HD) from a disk and not lose the resolution. Is that even possible? There is nothing for the "in-between" resolutions so I'm trying to come up with a solution. Thank you!

Video standards and computer standards don't match as you have seen. No there is nothing in between. HD is either 1280x720 or 1920x1080. You would need to either place your 1024x768 video in a 1920x1080 frame and have black bars around all of the edges, or scale the video up to fill the height of 1080. In fact, if you drop your 1024x768 video into a 1920x1080 project in Vegas Pro it will automatically do the scaling for you.

Then render to Blu-ray with Tools | Burn Disc | Blu-ray Disc... assuming you don't need any menus. Yes, you will loose quality by re-rendering but you don't have a choice since your original video is not Blu-ray compliant.
