Are you playing it on your computer or a standalone BluRay player?
And are you working on a Vista SP1 operating system?
The LG is a SATA internal Blu-ray writer. The Sony Playstation 3 is external. Both stutter in the same way. So two blu-ray players show same problem.
The OS is Vista SP1 Home Premium
Hope you can help
I don't know if http://www.imgburn.com/ will work with bluray discs, but you might check the site and download if it will (freeware)
Then create a folder on your hard drive and use Imgburn to write the disc... using the slowest burn speed for best burning (this often works with DVD, may help with bluray)
Other than that, you might provide details of your creation process... I don't do bluray, but info on what you are editing and output codec and settings might help
The bluray writer disc did show some clips perfectly on a run through but would be stuttery on the same clip another. The less the movement or detail within the clip, the more likely smooth flow. It's as if the data cannot be extracted fast enough from the disc.
I'm reluctant to use thrid party software at this early stage as I feel Adobe wouldn't release a product that doesn't work with currently available retail products. (I'm not a computer buff!)
My source is from a Sony AVCHD flash memory camcorder, clips downloaded onto a scratch disc SATAII 720 300mb/s. DMA enabled on writer. Internet disconnected during writing.
I have tried several outputs to the disc, including Blu ray H264 1440x1080i PAL Dolby and MPEG2 1440 x 1080i PAL Dolby. Both create stuttered output.
I've had a number of device error messages and finally a fatal error, after which the DVD is not recognised. It is or was a BD-RE by LG that came in the box.
I'm reluctant to buy more discs, as they're very expensive, until I have some ideas on how to proceed.
The DVD writer and a SD back up writer both create SD DVDs from the AVCHD material without major problems.
I think I could still return the Bluray writer and exchange it for other goods but that doesn't solve the long term problems.
Incidentally I can stream the video 'shared' onto 720pWMW over my LAN to an XBOX360 without problems.
Lot of information that I hope helps
I can understand playback stuttering when playing back from a computer... Blu-rau playback requires a fast processor and an adequate video card. But it should not stutter when played back on the PS3.
I believe the Quad 2.87Ghz processor and 512Mb Nvidia 9800GT should easily cope with the task.
Have you successfully made Bluray discs with PE7 that play on PS3?
If so would your writer be the same model as mine? LG GGW-H20L.
>feel Adobe wouldn't release a product that doesn't work with currently available retail products. (I'm not a computer buff!)
Ah... that is why software goes from x.0 to x.1 to x.2 and so on... there are many thousands of lines of C source code in a product like PE, so problems are bound to manifest
Yes, your Quad Core should be able to cope with Blu-ray playback. I just produce AVCHD discs on standard DVDs playing them back using CyberLink PowerDVD... it takes advantage of the graphics card GPU and so uses hardly any of the processors power.
Thank you,. Could you explain a little more.
PE7 doesn't seem to output AVCHD only the Bluray codecs.
I didn't think that PS3 played AVCHD.
Are you using PE7 to make Bluray DVDs in the manner prescibed by Adobe?
Is your writer the same model as mine? I suspect the writer may be faulty but have no way of proving it.
Sorry Derek, I dont have a Bluray burner... I burn high definition AVCHD format (with Menus etc) to standard DVDs using a standard burner. I export my videos as H.264 1440x1080 video from PE7 and then use ULEAD Moviefactory (which has smart-rendering for the format) to author the AVCHD discs. Virtually all my videos are under twenty minutes so no need at the moment to go the Bluray path.
It's probably better to burn a Blu-Ray disc outside of Premiere Elements and after you have exited it. With a lot of disc activity going on related to the massive files created in Premiere Elements and the RAM/paging/cleanup, there are bound to be interruptions that can cause poor burns immediately after rendering. But how do you export to a Blu-Ray ISO file from Premiere Elements so you can use ImageBurn:
And if you want, you can mount the virtual blu-ray disc and copy the contents to your hard drive.

Thank you. I thought H 264 140x1080 PAL was a Bluray format.
Can you play your H264 1440x1080 (AVCHD) discs on the PS3?

The video seems to burned onto the Dics OK but won't come off without buffering. It buffers at different places on repeated plays: so parts that are smooth on the first play stutter the next.
Do you feel the burner could have a problem? I'm tempted to take the burner back to my retailer
Thank you for you advice.
See http://www.adobeforums.com/webx/.59b6a627/0 for stuff on AVCHD DVD's, freeware, and the PS3.
Thanks - there's good info on the link.
I have used earlier versions of Premier but find PE7 using AVCHD very very prone to crashes. Using the sceneline is particulary so. It also feels sluggish as I drag clips, scrub the timeline etc.
Do you feel that is less reponsive than say PE4 on SD clips?
My computer is new and I'm wondering if the RAM (4Gb less a bit) on Vista 32bit SP1 is all that it should be
I'm thinking I'll return the bluray writer and wait a while as I can stream HD 720p wmv to my Xbox
I have not used PE4 so I cannot comment on responsiveness, but for AVCHD it seems much the same as other AVCHD editors I have tried.
