HD10 to DVD?

This may have already been covered but I can't find it.

How can I burn a DVD on a computer DVD burner for best picture quality that will play on a standalone DVD player. I need to get the stream from the HD10 to a file that plays in a DVD player and I want the best quality possible(put another way). A step by step would be nice.

If there is another thread that covers this please point me to it.
Thanks

Here's a rough step-by-step:

Import the footage to your computer as an MPEG TS via the HD10's software.

Use Vegas for your editing and converting. I would down-convert to 720 x 480 DV using Vegas with all the quality settings at their highest. Make sure you select Widescreen = 1.2 pixel ratio. Output your audio to a separate wave file.

Use something like Canopus ProCoder to do MPEG-2 conversion to a standalone MPEG stream (not integrated with audio). This will be an M2V file.

Use your favorite DVD authoring software to import the M2V and Wave files and create your DVD.

It varies with what software you use. If you tell us what SW you're using I could give more detailed instructions.

Thanks for the advice Peter. I was reading a post on another forum where someone advised you can do it with the JVC software. The step I was missing was converting the output file to MPEG instead of the M2T file. Once this is done you just use the ImageMixer DVD program to convert the MPEG and burn the DVD.

What really got me off on the wrong track was aother post on this forum. They said to use HDTVtoMPEG2 to convert to MPEG so I was looking for another program to convert the files to MPEG. I finally found a link to the file but have not tried it yet. Here is the link if anyone wants it. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?s=&threadid=292318
The name of the program is actually HDTV2MPEG 1.09

This conversion from m2t to MPEG is very CPU intensive and takes quite a while. I'm using a 2.4 pentium and I was converting about 40 minutes of video. After about an hour and a half of converting it was about 60% done and I went to bed. It was done this morning and I started the the ImageMixerDVD program and this took another hour before it started burning.

Just watched the DVD I created. It turned out very well. I doubt the Vegas program would do better as far as quality of end product. Also I already have the JVC software.

I checked the Vegas software and it was $500 for the Vegas & $700 for the Vegas+Plus DVD. If I were doing this for a living I might consider this program, but I'm not going to buy it to create a few home movie DVDs to give to my friends.

Probably the right choice. I didn't know JVC's software could convert to MPEG2 for you, but that's great.

ProCoder is one of the best, if not THE best, software MPEG-2 encoding tools. On certain systems its output will look way better than any bundled encoder. So yeah, if you go pro, I would definitely get a great video editor like Vegas and the Pro Coder.

Randall!
Thanks for doing the research to find 'HDTV2MPEG 1.09'! I've gotten busy at work and had to put the video editing on the back burner. (no pun intended)

The problem is when you do a search for hdtvtompeg2 you don't get what you are looking for. Here is another link with an version 1.10.
