FIRST-TIME HD/DVD recording
on Feb 5, 2015 at 9:06:25 pm

(Apologize if repetitive.)

With ancient PowerMac G5 and F.C.E. HD 3.5.1, for the first time, I must burn a High Definition DVD from a brief project shot on MiniDV tape in HDV (Sony HVR-HD1000u).

Bundled iDVD obviously does not burn HD discs.

What hardware do I need to obtain to burn HD (and/or BlueRay) DVDs? Is my HDV Apple Intermediate Codec/1080i video file going to transfer to most HD burners without issue?

Thanks in advance.

Are you trying to burn these on standard DVD? There is no high definition DVD. It's either Blu-ray or DVD. Blu-ray is for footage like 720p or 1080p and DVD is for the standard definition video.

I'm and Adobe user so I can't correctly comment on Apple programs.

I'll use whatever media is compatible and correct. But first I need the recorder. So I'm seeking knowledge on an HD and/or BlueRay recorder that's compatible with my hardware, software and HDV 1080i/Quicktime video files. Once I get the recorder, then I'll worry about the media.

I do what you want to do all the time.

Firstly I import into my edit system what ever it is you want to put on to DVD (for standard def, as has been explained, you need Blu-Ray for HD).

I make a programme from the media, export it as an Apple ProRes QT .mov file and take that file into BitVice for encoding. I then use Studio Pro to make a .mov from the resulting compressed file and burn the disc in Toast Titanium, all done on a MacPro, (the older one, not the very latest).

For Blu-Ray I can use Toast directly from my exported file, provided it's in HD. All my material is 1920 X 1080i and the discs look great and stand up well even in a cinema.

For burning your DVD's you can use the burner in your Mac, for BD's you'll need a stand alone burner and mine is a Lacie.
