Stuck - setting up for Blu-Ray
on Jan 24, 2011 at 11:35:41 pm

Hi Folks -- I really have no issue setting up for outputting a SD-DVD, but all that changed when I decided to burn a Blu-Ray disc.

First off, I have up to date software (FC Studio).

I export to Compressor... and now I'm lost. What settings do I use? I haven't a clue... If I could get this aspect completed I "think" I would easily get through DVD Pro. Of course, I won't know until I get something to put in there : )

I'm stuck... I've tried all I know, and now have decided to ask for help. Folks I though might know tell me they haven't a clue : /

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Can't be done in DVDSP.

What???? Really????

OK, The obvious question is... Why not? Heck, it's DVDSP 4.2.2 and you would think it was already built in!

Anyway, since posting the question I received my download of Squeeze 7. There is an output setting for Blu-ray disc so I'm trying that tonight. It sure seems to have been running a long time.

Anyway, back to DVDSP... I am just shocked, really. So what would I use if Sorenson Squeeze 7 doesn't do the trick?

Thanks
Jerry

Check out this:

Not exactly the best solution, but it does get you an AVCHD encoded file on a red laser (non BluRay) DVD that most BluRay players can play.

Jerry, by far the easiest path to BD is by exporting your HD file to a QT .mov then opening up Titanium Toast (version 10 WITH BD Plug-in) and dragging your file in. Toast does a good BD encode and then will burn to a BD disc. You do obviously have to have a stand alone BD burner attached to your computer for this. No need to even think about Studio Pro.

Thanks Michael, I really appreciate the advice. So creating a menu via DVDSP isn't a possibility...That's just hard to understand that Apple doesn't provide a method for this when everything seems to be there for a standard disc. I suppose I have a knowledge gap and am filling it publicly : )

I'll give Toast a try and post again with my success or failure details.

Thanks for the help folks. It's really great to be able to ask for help, and receive it.

Best Wishes

No Jerry, I didn't mention menus. I was merely setting down my workflow for creating Blu-Ray discs as opposed to DVD's. I pointed out that I didn't use Studio Pro for this and I don't believe you can. I don't put menus on my discs, just the one production and let it play automatically.

Hey Folks,
here is a new - cheaper option to get on the (more than) semi-pro-BD-train.

DVD Logics just released their own BD-authoring-tool called EasyBD. it could create simple BDs as it is near spec-level.

but if you are willing to pay for IG-Editor, you are able to create nice beatifull IG-Streams that could be muxed with your films.

EasyBD will cost 200$ and IG-Edit 500$, so for 700$ you´ll have a (nearly) full featured authoring-system.

http://www.dvd-logic.com/igeditor/
http://www.dvd-logic.com/easybd/

min. system-requirements are windows XP

I like it - it´s easy to use. :)

cheers

danny
