Best compression workflow FCP6 project for Bluray burning
on Jun 1, 2014 at 11:08:39 pm

My Bluray burner came with Roxio Toast Platinum 11 and I'd like to try it for burning a Bluray disc
os a short project (under 10 minutes).

My version of Compressor is 3.0.5 so there is no "Share with Bluray" compressor preset option.
I could use one of these Compressor presets:

DVCProHD 720p24 (footage and editing codec used)

HD DVD H.264 60 minutes

HD uncompressed 8 0r 6 bit

Should I use Compressor first, try exporting a Quiktime .MOV version of the timeline and dragging
that file directly into Toast, or is there a better way I'm not considering?

Thanks!

upgrade to FCS3 (FCP7) and use compressor for the encode, and Toast for authoring... that would be the ideal thing... but...

there is a way to do it with your version of Compressor, by defining the MPEG 2 stream....

One note; everyone says that creating MP4 files for blu-ray is a bad idea... and mpeg2 is much better... I never tried mp4's even at H.264, so I can't comment, but stick with having compressor make you mpeg2's

I think ken stone had something on this with earlier versions of FCS/Compressor... I would not use Toast to do the encode, since you own compressor.
