More and more people have video (or photo) camera that can capture high resolution videos.
If you don’t own a Blu-ray burner but you have a DVD burner and a Blu-ray player, I have good news for you:
It is possible to put about 30 minutes of “Full HD” (1080p) video on a standard DVD. This type of DVD is called an AVCHD-DVD.
The best part: it is free!
Here are the easy steps to create your Full HD DVD using multiAVCHD:
- Produce some HD footage.
- If you use Adobe Premiere CS5, export your video in H.264 (.mp4) using the HDTV preset.
- Many formats are acceptable but, if you can, choose H.264 as it does offer the best quality.
- Download and install multiAVCHD from here.
- Download and install ImgBurn from here.
- Pay attention to refuse any third party offer such as the Ask! Toolbar.
- Launch “multiAVCHD” from the Windows Start menu.
- In the “settings” tab, check “Use ImgBurn”.
- Click on the “Add video files” button and choose your source video(s).
- Click on the “Start” button.
- Many output formats are available, choose “AVCHD for optical media → AVCHD (strict)” as it is the most compatible format across different brands of Blu-ray players.
- The processing could take a while if your video needs recompression, when it is finished ImgBurn should launch and burn the DVD automatically.
- Put your DVD in your home cinema Blu-ray player.
