Hello All,

I am a recent convert from PC to Mac. I have a Canon HV30 High-Def camcorder. I am able to get my video into iMovie and compose it without problems. However I am having trouble figuring out how to get that video output IN HIGH-DEF to something playable in HD on a tv.

The ideal situation would be to burn a regular DVD that will play in a blu-ray player (I have a PS3). I know that AVCHD format can play direct in a blu-ray player. I would imagine there is some other way to get HDV formated content to play in a blu-ray player.

The only other options i have found that seem to work are: 1) record the video back to the miniDV tape and play through the camcorder - that option sucks!
2) get an appleTV and send the HD content to the AppleTV - but I don't want to spend the money on an AppleTV.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!

When you created the movie project did you tell the application that the movie to be created is HD. As in create a new project, from thee you tell it where you want to save the project and the video format you are using. Now this is iMovie HD 6.0.4 and not iMovie 7.1.2.

I have a new MacBook Pro so I only have the iMovie that came with iLife... I believe that is version 7. I'm thinking of getting FCE though.

Either way, I thought it had to do with the conversion and processing at burn time, not in the video editing software?

I have not done it yet, but I am edit HD videos from HF100 using iMovie/FCE and I will be using Toast Titanium 9 with the Blue Ray option. Just one warning, earlier versions of Toast 9 was bugging. You can make a BDMV folder (Blue ray directory structure) and record it on DVD and play it on a Blueray player. I have burned a AVCHD BDMV folder on DVD and played it back on a PS3.
