30P to Blu Ray?

I filmed a project on a Canon XHA1, 1080i 30P. Can this footage be burned to Blu Ray without a problem? From what I understand 24p and 60I are actual Blu Ray specs.

Re: 30P to Blu Ray?

Normally it would be converted to 60i, since 30p is not a directly supported Blu-ray format. x264 gives the option to flag the progressive frames as interlaced so the disc can be encoded as progressive. You have to check whether your Blu-ray authoring software will thereafter support using the reflagged 30p.

Hey Kevin...
The XHA1 shoots 60i, 24P and 30F.

You didn't mention any encoders. Since i use AME, it defaults to encode your 30P output as 29.97.
So yes, it will work. I do it all the time.
