Blu-Ray players are now $129. On Black Friday they'll be $89. Burners aren't much more. What are you waiting for?

Shoot, edit, master in HD. Then downconvert to DVD at the last minute. This way you have both but only need to do most of the work once.

1. material shot and edited in hd THEN transcoded to dvd looks better than straight sd.

2. you can include a hd file (mp4, m2t, etc.,) on your dvd - if someone can access it, they can play it on their pc / mac

3. you can re-release later on in blu-ray or whatever.

.

thanks. I was actually wondering about the first statement.
and the second one is a good idea I didn't think of and I was actually thinking to just save everything and when I get a BR burner I'll start burning everything on BR

Thanks
Leslie

What he meant is - do the whole process in HD. Once finished with edit, export the project to mpeg2 dvd format. This will give you higher quality then converting the footage to SD first then editing it.

Granted, after this holiday season there should be a lot more Blu-ray players out there but the problem is not the price of players or burners, it's the price of media. When I last checked BD-R media was still $13-15 per disc. It will need to drop to around $5 before I jump in.

There is also the question of BD-R and BD-RE compatibility with the cheaper players. I think we're going to go through the DVD-R/+R compatibility learning curve all over again.
