Thanks for the news Mike.

Wow, I just downloaded that file at over 1MB/s, whole 87MB only took 80 secs. Never saw such speeds here in Singapore before.

I've downloaded, installed, and have started off my Make Blu-Ray Disc. At the rendering stage. Here's hoping the "rocks of despair" don't come into view. Wish me luck!

If it works, then this is DEAD easy! No different at the user end to DVD Architect of old. I just opened a current project, changed the properties to Blu-Ray and away we go.

What are the rocks of despair?

Sometime this summer for 64bit? I hope it is soon.

Just a way of saying that I hope nothing nasty is lurking underneath the surface waiting to trash my first burn.

Showing 7 hrs still to render with 30mins elapsed on my Quad Core System.

First strange thing is that only the progress dialogue box comes up when you minimise then maximise the programme again.

Ahh, I agree. We have had problems with 4.5 putting pixelating artifacts on the DVD, but not with 4.0. Hopefully that goes away as well. I'll try it this afternoon.

Thank you for the updates. And come on 64bit Pro! I need you!

Is DVD A 5 free if you already have DVDA 4.5?

If it was already rendered to blu-ray inside Vegas 8.0b, does DVD Architect have to render the main title again, or just the menus?

Wow that was easy. Just burned an HD disc without a Blu Ray burner on a standard DVD and it played in my Blu Ray player (AVCHD file). Looked pretty good.

720 25p support

I notice DVDA 5.0 supports 24 and 23.976p, 50/60p and 50i/60i, but no 25p? The 50i/60i is only in SD and 1080 flavours.

So if I wanted to author my 720 25p footage, I'd have to uprez or downrez basically, curious though that I can (though I haven't yet done this) burn my 720 25p project straight from the Vegas timeline to Blueray??

Is this not a supported feature of Blueray?

Sorry Adam but it doesn't look like it :-(
Here's a reply from the Sony DVD Architect forum.

It is the blu ray spec that does not foresee 1080 25p and 1080 50p. The DVDA5 is here restricted, to stay in line with the Blu Ray specs.

What you could do is to change your material to 24p - simply by changing the length of the audio and video events - and create the proect using the Blu Ray 24p template with the mainconcept mpeg2 encoder.
