BR-R DL Reliability
on Aug 27, 2012 at 7:35:08 pm

I have a video that runs about 2 hours 50 minutes, and is 37 GB in size. I haven't burned to a dual-layer Bluray before, and wasn't quite sure how reliable the playback is for Blu-ray players. I tried researching a bit on this and didn't find much information.

I'm also wondering if I may be encoding too high of a bit rate. I have my setting in AME to high quality for bit rate. I wasn't sure if a 2hr 50min program at 37GB is normal or not.

Thanks for the help,

Cody,
if you are using good BD-R DL there should be no problem with playback. I´m using verbatim, never had any problems.

cheers

You can fit 2h 50 minutes of 1080p video on a single layer disc at 17 mbps VBR. Using H.264 compression, this should still look good... especially if you are using the new x264 Pro encoding plugin that produces fantastic studio quality results even at the lower bitrates. It uses x264 at it's core, so the quality is MUCH better than the default MainConcept encoder that is built into the Adobe Media Encoder.

Good luck.

Hi Jon,

Thanks for the X.264 recommendation, but it looks like its only available for PC and I'm on Mac. I'll give your recommendation a try at 17mbps.

Thanks!

Yes, x264 Pro is currently only available for Windows. You should still be able to get acceptable results with the MainConcept encoder at 17 mbps. When you start to go below 16 mbps for standard mixed content, that is when you really start noticing compression artifacts.
