Burn a two (2) hour XDCAM video to Blu-Ray
on Feb 28, 2013 at 1:40:42 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm editing with Final Cut Pro and the footage is XDCAM full 1920x1080.

I'm looking for a step-by-step method to burn a 2 hour long video to Blu-Ray disc using Adobe Encore.

Any suggestions? Thanks.

Pete

When you google "making a blu ray with Encore" did the tons of tutorials listed not work for you? :)

As it turns out I just posted this in my thread below. My file size was large as well (almost 2 hours). I will re-post the steps here. I also used FCP to edit XDCAM, encoded with Compressor and authored with Encore.

===================

1) Edit your 2 hour XDCAM video in Final Cut Pro and export as a self-contained movie. Under "Current Settings".

2) Import this video into Compressor.

3) Under "Settings" Apple > Formats > MPEG-2, choose "Program Stream" and drag that onto your clip.

4) Under "Settings" Apple > Formats > Audio, choose "Dolby Digital Professional 2.0" and drag that onto your clip.

5) Now, click the "Program Stream" setting you dragged onto your clip. In the Inspector window, select the "Encode" button.

• File Format: MPEG-2
• Stream Usage: Blu-ray

Under the "Video Format" tab:

• Video Format: HD 1920X1080
• Frame Rate: (whatever you shot in)
• Aspect Ratio: 16:9
• Field Dominance: Progressive

6) Click, the "Submit" button. This will export an m2v (video) file and an ac3 (audio) file.

7) Drag these 2 files into Adobe Encore as your video and audio files and go to town with your Blu-ray authoring.

Hope this helps.

Derek,
any reason why you used MPEG2 while compressor could also encode H264? it has better encoding-results at lower bitrates and more content would fit on a BD?

and sorry again - programm-streams are wrong for BD-authoring as elementary streams are necessary. as you might set "blu-ray" afterwards your setting will be set back to elementary (.m2v) which is correct. otherwise youll get a .MPEG-file which is wrong.

also be awared that apple AC3-template has wrong audio-settings!

cheers

danny
