I am a bit confused birdcat, I burn AVCHD at 1920 x 1080 to standard DVD’s all the time. i am burning one right now on a double layer DVD, my helicopter footage. When I choose the disc burn settings, it says AVCHD at 1920 x 1080. I then pop the DVD disc in my BD player and the screen says AVCHD, then it plays. When you check the disc the codec information is in fact AVCHD 1920 x 1080. Videostudio X4 Ultimate was one of the first NLE’s to support this and the X5 version does as well. You do not need Blu-Ray disc to burn AVCHD or HD 1920 x 1080 to a standard disc. But be aware, AVCHD is far far larger contect. 30 minutes of rendered footage amounts to almost 5GB of content that can’t be compressed more because it will not be AVCHD if it was. I use Double Layer DVD’s for AVCHD’s.
