Does DVD Architect not support 1920×1080 29.97p, 30p, 59.94i or 60i?

Good morning,

About a week ago I downloaded the trail of DVD Architect to see if it's better than my old software for creating Blu-Rays, and I've seem to work through everything I've needed to learn except that I can't change the FPS to anything above ~29.97i?

The Disc I'm trying to create is a compilation of short videos, most of which are 1080 at 59.94, but there are some that are 720p, as well as some that are 29.97 and 30 fps.

So with everything done, including creating the menus, playlists, and backgrounds, I'm hoping someone here can help me make this one small change from 29.97 to 59.94 fps?

Any ideas? I've spent some time searching these forums and the net but can't find anyone else having this issue :-(

Thanks in advance,

59.94i is 29.97 interlaced. (59.94 fields a second or 29.97 frames) . They are the same.

If you actually mean 59.94 progressive, that is different.

@Former user DVD Architect options I'm seeing Do Not include 29.97p, 30p, 59.94i or 60i.

Note - Blu-Ray players support many HD resolutions and frame rates all the way up to 1920x1080 at 60p (1080p60):


But the limited DVD Architect settings I'm seeing of 23.976p, 24p, 25i, and 29.97i do not provide for support of common values like 29.97p, 30p, 59.94i, or 60i.

And it definitely doesn't include new options like 59.94p or 60p.

I'm surprised no one can answer this question - is no one else using DVD Architect? If not, what do you author your Blu-Ray discs with?

Normal HD Bluray does not support 59.94p or 60p, only UltraHD which DVDA does not create. 29.97p, 30p are not supported either but as you noticed, the other rates are in Bluray. The WIKI you linked to notes this in the footnotes.
And as I stated earlier, 59.94i is the same as 29.97i so you use 29.97 for 59.94i video. 60i is not supported AFAIK.

If you notice in the WIKI there are little "a"s and "b"s denoting the footnote.
