Admittedly I am a newb when it comes to burning HD dvd's. I have the xr150. My daughter has a recital Saturday. So i made a short test movie to make sure I could make a disc. I recorded in the highest level of HD. I then imported it to the supplied PMB program, and when I went to burn disc it kept giving me an error, unable to locate drive. So I just gave up. So I opened file in windows movie maker, and proceded to create disc. Once completed I took it to a cheap DVD player we have and wanted to see if it will play. It did play, but it was a bit grainy, not bad but I noticed. Grandmas wont notice and since they dont have blu ray it will do. My question is it grainy due to it being recorded in HD. Would it play clearer on a blu ray player?
One more question I read about the vegas 10 that just came out. If I got this would I be able to record in HD, then save it in HD then burn disc in sd for the grandmas and then burn myself an HD DVD. Or do I have to record it all in SD for best results.
Thanks, love the camera but the editing is a whole new game to learn.
*** ok dvd was grainy on the blu ray also maybe even worse.
