“The Easiest HD Video App”

Since Sothink HD Movie Maker 1.0 has been released recently, it is much appreciated that more and more users shared their experience and thoughts about the Blu-ray Disc Burner from SourceTec.

About the Author

Constantly researching the optical industry for the latest and greatest hardware and software available. Now he will share his Blu-ray burning experience on HD videos with us.

“Thinking in HD
…This year we are starting to see the first wave of HD video converter/editors for easy Blu-Ray or AVCHD creation. One such tool is from Sothink called HD Movie Maker. The first thing I noticed about this software was the well laid out interface that didn’t look to overly done. Everything is where it is needs to be.

Basically here are the steps involved to create a Blu-Ray movie:

  • Load the videos you want on the final result
  • Choose your burner, disc size (DVD5, DVD9, BD 25GB, BD 50GB), Video Dimensions, and Frame Rate
  • Insert your Blank Disc and click the Burn Button

Now simply walk away or go to bed and when you get back to the computer you will have a disc ready to watch in your favorite player. Note: My first test took about 4 hours to burn a 2 hour avi upcoverted to AVCHD which took the full 4.38 single layer of the DVD. I am please to see that the quality from the original avi to the DVD was dramatic.

Also note that this software is simply a HD Video Converter/Burner, you can not author/edit video.


The ease of use and final video quality of the discs are what is impressive of HD Movie Maker. So far this is one of the easiest HD Video apps I have used this year.” (Read more reviews)
