K3 video formats and DVD

If I understand correctly the K3 video format uses a .MOV container for a format of MPEG-4 AVC/H.264 which I believe should capable of producing HD videos on DVD using a suitable Video Editor software. I would be indebted if anyone could verify my statement and possibly suggest what would be a suitable codec to produce the HD DVD.

You're not going to have any trouble using the footage from the camera for DVD authoring.
The program you use to create and write the DVD .vob files will handle it well enough.

I think the OP wants to burn an HD file on DVD media to play back on a Bluray player. Perhaps Boxcam can confirm and whether or not he's using a Mac or a PC. Some video editing programs and disc burning software don't support burning AVCHD files to DVD media.

Hi CDW - Many thanks for reply. You have got it absolutely correct, that is what I want to do. I am using a a Pc with Windows 7 and using Serif MoviePlus X5 for video editing. I was really asking if the K3 video files were good enough to produce HD movies on DVD. You seem to imply that they would be OK.

Doing a bit of search, it appears your software can export an AVCHD file. I found it less clear that you can burn that file directly from the software to a DVD. In my situation, using a MAC, I export AVCHD files to a Movies folder, then use ROXIO Toast to burn them to DVDs. I have found the AVCHD files, in direct comparisons of the same material, to not match in quality, the same material exported and burned as a Bluray file on a BDR media. But the AVCHD files are a quantum leap in quality beyond standard definition video burned to DVD.

Many thanks once again CDW for the extra informatiom. I wiil bear this in mind for future reference, but for now I will have to stick with AVCHD to DVD as I have just ordered a Blu Ray Player and it will be a little while before I can afford the expense of a Blu Ray burner.
