Greets, Im Shada and I came across your site while looking for help / advice so maybe you can.
Ive recently jumped into the Blu sector out fitting my pc with both a LG GBC-H20L Super Multi Blue and an LG BH08LS20 Super multi Blue (writer) for purposes of watching movies on my HDtv, Storage of downloaded files, and mastering of footage from my camcorder which is a sony HDR-Hc5 ( DV 1080i)
For the simple stuff such as movies and storage buring, Ive got that covered, but im needing a lil help for dealing with the footage from my camcorder. I transfer it directly to HDD via firewire using HDV Split and it comes up as an M2t file.
So last night I attempted to use the software that came with the writer (cyberlink Power Producer) to edit, arrange, and supposedly master out to a BD, a lot of footage from one of my recent anime con trips.
Everything seemed to be ok and I started the encoding / burn process and then headed for bed as I had to work early in the morning.
So next morning imagine my dismay when i come to find out that the program has locked at 50%, lost all the edit settings I had setup, and coastered the BD (@ $13 a pop for singles i DONT want this to be a regular occurrence)
So any suggestions for some good software (with out a terrible learning curve if possible) and advice that I can use to make BD’s out of my cam footage, and other avenues in the future? I should soon be getting more blanks in (THANK YOU to the person who posted the Frys.com sale link!!!) and really want to be set up to work with my footage by then.
Many thanks and sorry for the long post!!!
