Re: working in 9:16 from DSLR

Lack of notification was because the box had got unticked - my fault as usual - and my colleague had done just what Tim said for her 9:16 project for the sponsors to chooose how to display it, possibly on monitors rotated 90 degrees!

working in 9:16 from DSLR

A colleague has a project ongoing which, because they are mostly single person interviews in and around high-ceilinged spaces, she is filming in portrait (9:16) format. Using Premiere Pro 2019 should she be able to edit them right-way-up or has she to lie down on the job??

Re: BluRay reader/writer.

Thank all for help. I usually leave all the tech stuff to my helper but had a go at Device Manager today and found that while it lists the blu ray device it calls it a CD-Rom or something. More importantly when I went through to problems and put in 'Blu Ray' nothing comes up at all! It only offers '...

Re: BluRay reader/writer.

Sorry for delay getting back. A replacement same model exhibits the same inablity to recognise a blu ray disc apparently thinking (sorry) it's a blank CD. As before it sees a DVD as it is and plays it OK. Could the graphics card in the computer be at fault? Not up to bluray specs? Or anything else? ...

Re: BluRay reader/writer.

I'll do that Tim.
There's 62 minutes of films on it. If it hasn't been finalised would there be 13 GB left free? But in that case it wouldn't play on computer or player would it, Tom?

Re: BluRay reader/writer.

For some reason, probably because I didn't click submit, my last post hasn't apppeared. It said that the Pioneer deck installed on our domestic PC, using Windows 7 SP1, plays a Bluray disc but the computer shows the disc as having a capacity of 13.2 GB of which 13.2 GB is free which seems to me to s...

What model LG, Tom? Perhaps Pioneer was the wrong make to use.

Re: BluRay reader/writer.

"If the disc is a BluRay, a DVD reader should not be able to read it!" It's a mystery. As far as I remember it 'saw' the files on the disc, it wouldn't copy them, but I dragged them to the folder on my D (video) drive and Nero put them onto a DVD, along with others, which plays perfectly. My graduat...

Re: BluRay reader/writer.

Explanation Found. The computer is using Windows XP which doesn't cope with Bluray. Our* fault for not reading specs properly, which say Win 7 & 8. * = usually very helpful neighbour. I said "hadn't you better make sure computer is up to it?" XP runs my old progammes adequately. Sorry for wasting yo...

Re: BluRay reader/writer.

Thanks, Tim, but do your answers correlate with my brief statement "DVDs OK"? I used it to copy files from three or four DVDs to computer which did recognise it when installed. As for 3, are there different formats for home made Blurays? These discs play on two different Sony players to our club pro...

BluRay reader/writer.

wanting to be able to make a compilation on a bluray disc as I can on DVD (which could include a Bluray film tho' obviously at a lower quaity) I was advised to get a Pioneer BDR-209EBK, had it installed and started on the project. OK with the DVDs but the Pioneer did not recognise a member's home ma...

Re: FVM Editor

I understand that Mike Whyman is taking over temporarily as editor but why you are hearing this informally from me not from IAC Council I can't imagine unless there are some red faces in high places. I didn't feel that I wanted to air my views in public as it were and gave them to Garth direct but I...
