I was told that final cut exp can edit my avchd files from my sony video camera, then i can burn those files to a standard dvd which will only read in my ps3. Again only ps3. Is this true, again it is edited, music, transitions added, etc..., not just avchd files, but edited in fce4. how do i do it, being that idvd has to burn the dvd. or is this not true.

You can burn AVCHD to DVD in AVCHD format that Blue ray players such as PS2, can read. If I want menus, etc. I would use Toast 9 enabled with Blue Ray. I always archive the originals on DVDs in this format without re-rendering the video which is an option in Toast 9.

To play back in Standard DVD's, I edit on FCE / iMovie and then burn the dvd using iDVD with menus etc. Also, before I delete the project, I render a high data rate MP4 /.H264 to play back on my computers or TV via a MacBook using FrontRow.

QUOTE Thanks
