Hi. My first time here, hoping to get some good advice from you guys.
I just bought a Sony DHR FX1000, my first HD camera. I
m using Pinnacle Studio 14. <br />When Importing (capturing) the raw video should I go with AVI or MPEG ? Why wouldnt one of the Capture choices be HDV ? I want my HD video to capture at full 1080 resolution. Any feedback ?
And, when burning my finished project to a DVD, if I want to retain HD video I can use regular blank DVD-R media, right ? As long as the size of the final video is under 4.7 GB ?
I heard I didn`t need BD media or a BlueRay burner as long as the size stayed within this limit.
Can anyone confirm that ?
I greatly appreciate your help, guys !
I’m interested in this question as well (thanks for posting). I have Pinnacle 14 and Sony Vegas. I shoot my videos in HD, but because they are (mostly) for the web, I don’t need HD. but that may soon change.
Mike and sunkleep, from my limited experience/knowledge, my camcorder shoots AVCHD (not HDV). I can take these files and burn to a standard DVD with Vegas Movie Studio and these HD files play on a bluray or PS3 player in High Def. They won’t play on a standard DVD player in this form, I would have to convert them before burning to DVD to play on this type of player. Perhaps someone with more knowledge or experience with HDV could shed some light on this for you.
I recommend you play around with both – which gives you better results? With mpeg, make sure to check the settings. Your camcorder is a beauty (I know, I have two) and shoots amazing video.
I can’t answer on the DVD question. I can say that the videos I burn to Blu-Ray look fantastic. I had to replace my old blu-ray burner recently, I upgraded my desktop to Windows 7. My new burner cost $130.00.
Design, I’ve been looking to add a Bluray burner to my desktop. Does the burner that you added require a sata connetction? Thanks.
Yes. However, you can buy external burners too: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&DEPA=0&Order=BESTMATCH&Description=external+Blu-ray+burner
