With the release of ProShow 7, a handful of new video output formats have been added to the Video for Web, Devices and Computers window. You may notice a category called High Definition Disc Authoring. The goal of these video presets is to allow you to create Blu-ray or AVCHD files that can be imported into a 3rd-party disc authoring program without the need to re-encode the video.
Today I’d like to show you how to create an AVCHD video file that can be burned to a standard DVD disc and played in a Blu-ray player. This effectively cuts out the need to purchase a Blu-ray burner or blank BD-R discs. [Note: AVCHD discs cannot be played on regular DVD players – only Blu-ray players.]
UPDATE: Native AVCHD burning support was introduced in ProShow 8. The steps provided below are unnecessary if you have a version newer than 7.

This content is free to use by all ProShow users.Continue reading →
