Hello,

I'm having an issue with my first Blu ray project. Need some advice.

I'm using Adobe Priemere Pro CS3 and exporting to Encore CS3 to burn directly without menus'. I exported as high quality 1080i 29.97 with mpeg2. I'm buring the Sony BD-R on a Sony BWU100A with Encore. My player is a brand new BDP S300(bought it today). Inside the manual it says the player will not play BD-r and DVD-r. My DVD-r's I've authored play fine. I captured the video from a high def Sony HDR-HC8 via firewire into Premiere pro CS3

Thanks,

Kent

Been browsing the other forums. Seems like good ole Sony does not support BD-re and a firmware update must be developed. May not even happen. I will return the BDP S300 tomorrow and pick up a Samsung that supports BD-re. It's a shame the videographers are not supported in order to curb piracy.

If I'm mistaken someone please chime in with a post

Kent

Spoke with Sony Support today. They are sending a firmware update that will allow my player to play BD-R disks. I will send another post if it works. Should be 7-10 days

You found the answer before I could even respond. The technology is still very much unstable, so there is a good chance homemade discs won't play well in players. Heck, even commercially produced Blu-Ray discs are having troubles playing in players.

This says it all:
"It's a shame the videographers are not supported in order to curb piracy."

Since this post was originally made, there have been some minor improvements in consumer/prosumer Blu-Ray Disc creation. Most of those are simply in the ease of authoring discs, through software such as TMPGEnc Authoring Works 4, or Sony Vegas Video 8 with the optional DVD Architect 5.

However, the playability of BD-RE in Blu-Ray decks is still hit-of-miss, according to various (angry!) user reports out there.

I still firmly believe Blu-Ray is the answer to a question nobody ever asked. It's on par with S-VHS or Laserdisc, destined to niche status favored by a relatively small amount of self-proclaimed die-hard enthusiasts. Solid-state and on-demand media is the future, powered by downloads, hard drives and thumb drives. Discs have fallen out of favor, due to scratches, skipping lasers, and things of that nature.

I still watch the Blu-Ray status regularly, and have yet to see prices or functionality exceed the abilities of DVD, or answer the questions consumers are really asking. Price alone has been a primary killer, in an economy that now (rightfully) villifies high-dollar wasteful luxury expenses.

Higher definition may be its primary advantage, but in a world fascinated by Youtube and iPods, such detailed-oriented imagery is clearly not a priority of the masses.
