How to render WMV-HD720P DVD?

Hi guys, I heard that the WMV-HD720P can be delivered on DVD. Can Vegas do this? I'm using an FX1e, shooting 1440x1080i.

If you are using Vegas 7 just select one of the three (3) 720p render templates for WMV files to create the output. You will need some other way to get that file onto a DVD because DVD Architect only supports MPEG-2.

WMV9 is a non-compliant video file with the DVD specification, and, as such, cannot be written to a DVD as a "video format". having said that, once you've created a WMV9 file, it's sufficient to burn that file to a DVD disc as a data file, i.e. a DVD-ROM(ISO) file. This is the default selection in NERO, for example. You'll find that this will play in a player that can read WMV9 or DivX files, altho', there is no menu associated with this file type.

Ah thanks for the great info guys! So does it mean that Divx is WMV-720P? I'm pretty confused with Divx cuz I have seen quite a few formats around. So what is the difference? So besides this WMV-720P, are there any other good methods? I will try this out first.

No, DivX is yet another MPEG4 codec. It was created as an alternative to WMV. If you want to use DivX HD you must make sure your DVD player claims to be DivX HD compatible (it will have the logo on it). Mine plays DivX but not DivX HD. :(

Hi Sean,

I think you were reading the thread I started over on the weddings section?

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/win...d/default.aspx

Not sure if this will make life any easier.

Hi John!

Any tips on "other" ways of burning a WMV-HD disc?

or........when do you thing DVD Architect will offer HD Burning capabilities?

Thanks John & Alastair.. wow the MS thingy on creating the DVD sounds like quite a challenge.. can be done but pretty tedious huh? Do u actually go thru all of that to get the WMV-HD DVD done for playback on a PC? But then again it does work for wedding as many ppl r using laptop for playback..

Anyway I have completed just completed my WMV720-25P n I hope it will run on the DVD recorder (think it prob wouldnt!!)

Update. The WMV didnt work on the DVD player. But the HD 720P did look great on the PC.

Do you have an HD DVD player or other player that specifically supports WMV HD? Because if you don't, it isn't going to work. Traditional DVD players only play MPEG2. Some newer DVD players added support for DivX and WMV in standard definition. Some "really" new DVD players support DivX HD and WMV HD in 720p. Your player needs to support the format you are giving it. I'm not sure if this was clear or not. You don't just get HD for free on an SD DVD player. The player must support HD to begin with.

BINGO! You got the idea now. I learned the hard way. I bough a player that had the DivX logo but it wasn't the "DivX HD" logo and it was a no go. So you have to get a player that supports the format on DVD.

There only seem to be two or three players out at the moment that do this. Type in WMV HD Players in Google and you will get some links.

Hopefully they will become more the norm.

Even more hopefully, blu-ray burners drop to $50 and Sony release a DVD Architect HD Authoring update........PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!

This may be what eventually shakes down to DVD-Architect?
