VP8 will burn a Blue Ray disk straight from the timeline.
Can anybody answer if it can do a SD DVD in the same fasion?
I'm not seeing that on the site from Video Guys, so I can't tell.
I'd GUESS it can, but - I think that makes me One-Who-Assumes.
I don't see an option in VP8 to burn a DVD directly from the timeline.
All the disc burning options are at Tools/Burn Disc
The Blu-Ray disc option is there. This renders to Blu-Ray format first and then, I'd assume, you have an option to burn that file to a Blu-Ray disc. VP8 comes bundled with DVDA now which is where they expect you to burn rendered files to DVD.
