I don't have a Blu-Ray burner but would like to burn some footage from my HDV camera onto a DVD-R while maintaining the HD resolution. I also have yet to upgrade to CS5. I've heard said that you can convert to AVCHD and burn to a standard DVD that will work in some Blu-Ray players such as the PS3 using a combination of programs including Nero.
So, is there a way to do this using Premiere & Encore CS5? I don't want to downconvert it but just burn as much playable HD footage with menus to a standard DVD. If it is possible, what is the process? If it isn't possible with just Premiere/Encore, is there a better way? Thanks.
Procedure is very easy: make a BluRay iso (img) in Encore and burn it with Nero or ImgBurn to a dvd. All you need is a BR-player either pc or standalone. No need for a BR-burner.
A regular dvd holds about 20 minutes of HDV/HD.
