You’ll need both Final Cut Pro AND DVD Studio Pro to do this…but if you have the tools, it is possible to create Hi-Def DVDs from 4.75 GigÂ Type 5 DVDs. It should also be noted that these disks are only going to play in your Mac.
SoÂ if you want to watch them on your big screen, you’re going to need a DVI out as well.
From Ken Stone’s article:
This article can be virtually summed up in few lines, which is: “if you want to make HD Dvds onto 4.7 GB DVD-Rs then set the preferences in DVD Studio Pro to the HD format required, encode your assets through Compressor, and then follow the same procedure as one has used to make SD DVDs.”Â
