    Default HDV - Canon XH-A1 to Blue-Ray

    I record in HDV with my Canon XH-A1 camcorder and so far have always output to PAL DV format using Adobe Premier - with a good end product on a 52" plasma Panasonic TV.

    I really do appreciate you can see the difference between DV and HDV when watching a television.

    Is there anyone out there who can, from actual experience, advise me when using Premier Pro 2, CS3 or CS4, if there is that much difference between the end product of a DVD burnt using the DV format and a DVD burnt using a Blue-Ray format, having used the Canon XH-A1 footage for both formats.

    Thanks for your help. John

    Use Adobe Encore to create Blu-ray discs (there is no 'e' in Blu-ray) and see for yourself. It's easy to do and the difference is clear to see.

    However, be prepared to give some attention to any noisy sequences from XH-A1 and maybe add some noise reduction if needed.

    Default HDV - Canon XH-A1 to Blue-Ray

    Many thanks Dave,

    Was hoping for some feedback before I spent my hard to comby cash but have since bought a Blu-ray burner but been too busy to try it being a golden oldie with grandchildren.

    I very please to now know that I haven't wasted my cash.

    I thought I did fairly well with only one typing error.

    Thanks again,

    John

    Best advice when starting with Blu-ray; Buy a BD-RW to practise on. Slow to burn, but will save you some dosh.

    Default Blu Ray, DVD, SVCD and VCD authoring

    Many thanks for that Archie.

    I did a little research before buying and came up with the same solution. Had it a month and still not got round to using it though. Very busy with editing etc.

    I found the HD footage from my XH-A1 gob smacking when I first used Blu-ray. Particularly on close ups. I'm sure you'll find it well worth while.
