p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Help needed burning 1080p video to DVD


Sorry this may be lengthy. I hope it's not in the wrong forum. I didn't find any other forums this may go in.

I recorded video on my Canon 1DX at 1920 resolution, 30fps, IPB.
I was able to get the video into iMovie.
I was able to share the video at 1080p to a disk file (Hurrah).
I was able to input the video into iDVD but cannot burn a DVD at 720p.
I was able to burn a video at 540p.
I have 16 gig of RAM with iOS 10.12.2 on a 1 TB SSD.
I have a 3 TB drive for data.
The movie is 1 hour 25 minutes and 5 seconds long.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Ken.

I am sure you don't want to spend more money, but have you considered Toast?

It may not be the solution you are looking for, but it is useful.

Normally I would use the DVD authoring Final Cut - DVD Studio Pro.

iDVD is no longer supported is it? There may be some conflict there.

thanks, I'll look at Toast. I used to have that program.
Not sure what you mean about iDVD not being supported. It did burn a 540p file but would puke at a 720p file.
Thanks for your reply.

It occurs to me that, perhaps the DVD format does not support HD? Isn't that why Blu-Ray/HD disks were developed? Does a DVD drive actually have enough bandwidth to put out 1080P?

Just thinking about it.

Correct, the 1080p would not fit, but in my original post I said even the 720p wouldn't burn.
iDVD would go through all but the last step (burning) and it would say it would take 3 hrs and 35 minutes
and then I would get the spinning beach ball.

I was able to reduce the file to 540p and burn the DVD's but I really had high hopes of keeping it at 1080p
and wondered what videographers for weddings, TV shows, etc. do, as I hadn't done this before.

On the 540p file I used Magic DVD in iDVD instead of walking through the steps.
I ran out of blank DVD's because my next step was to try Toast 8 on my laptop and 720p again on the iMac with Magic DVD to see if maybe that also cured the burning issue.

cwebster, I'm sure you are correct that maybe a Blu-Ray would take 1080p. Thanks for your reply.
