ENCODING for blu ray (not authoring)
on Apr 15, 2008 at 1:28:53 pm

OK. I'm super bummed. Looks like Apple is not going to be announcing blu ray support at NAB this year (since it's already tues. and nothing has been announced). I'm pissed. I have a ton of clients expecting their projects on BD-R and I can't deliver them. EXCEPT... I do have Adobe Encore. Never used it before but I'm sure i can figure it out. My question is... what the heck do i use to encode? In the FCP suite you use compressor to encode so I'm wondering if there's a way to do it through the adobe suite (I have the CS3 Production Suite) or do I need to buy yet another application? Thanks for any help! :)

you can export from Premiere Pro or import a QT into Encore and transcode it within the program.

i believe both routes use the same transcode engine.

Compressor allows you to encode Mpeg2 for Blu-Ray, but I have not tried this.
The H.264 transcodes from Encore have been pretty good so far.

be aware that the preview in Encore is LAME.
burn a BD-RE to test final picture on a HD monitor.

I have been using Encore for about 2 weeks now... and as a long time DVDSP user, I find it a bit un-intuitive.... but workable.

good luck with your project.

Also note that both Premiere and Encore CS3 are capable of encoding to H.264 for Blu-ray or MPEG-2 for Blu-ray.

Which app you choose to encode in is up to you.
