Is there a possibility to create a HDV DVD (e.g. 1920 x 1080)?
I had a Canon Legria HV40, still capturing on tape. I take family videos, families, etc. Unfortunately, just before the wedding the camera broke. I edit with Pinnacle 17 (previously 12)
The groom bought a JVC GZ-EX255 Everio which is supposed to be high definition.
These are the specifications of a clip. It uses a H264 codec and the dimensions are 1920x1080
These are the possibilities that Pinnacle offer.
First the file options:
So many uncertainties!!
Should one uses this codec; should I convert to mpeg; should I rather use TMPG; etc, etc.
Possibilities for a disc includes:
DVD 720 x 576 50i 100% fit on disc. Is this still the best?
AVCHD 1920 50i 81% fit on disc.
AVCHD2 1920 50i 59% fit on disc.
I was under the impression that more people are using progressive in stead of interlaced?
So, what are the best settings for a high quality DVD and secondly for an external hard drive?

Anything can be burned onto a DVD disc as a data disc. It'll play in a computer but not in a regular DVD player. And you can also probably make it into a Blu-Ray, maybe without doing anything more than authoring it.
How it's resized depends on whether or not it's truly interlaced. I don't (and won't) use anything Pinnacle, but maybe it knows how to resize interlaced content. I'm sure someone here can tell you. You'll probably also want to re encode that PCM audio as DD 2.0 AC3 (not as DD 5.1 since your source is only stereo.).
So, you obviously recommend other software???.
Would you recommend TMPG or what other software are you thinking of?
You had that explained in #2 response.
AVCHD on DVD is used to save money, or was used in the past more with high prices for BD discs then, where you store AVCHD on DVD, you can play it in Blu-Ray player, today's BD players would play it or you can play it on your computer. You have to watch for bitrate, should not be more than 18Mbit/s. But you cannot use it in DVD player.
