Is anyone else as driven to madness as I am about the crappy Blu-Ray burning feature out of FCP? I've had four failed burns over the last two days and for no apparent reason.
On Tuesday, I got a drive delivered to me with an HD-res ProRes 4444 quicktime of the master of a 90 minute feature. Producer wanted a Blu-Ray burned of that source. That worked fine. No problem.
Then he wanted a Blu-Ray burned with an on-screen burn-in, "Property of blah blah blah, do not duplicate".
I put this text on in the timeline, rendered it, then went through the same "send to compressor" process. Failed burn. Ok, maybe it was a bad disc. Try again, fails again. It just spits it out and says, "There was an error burning the disk. Check the storage on your boot drive." (there are about 200 GB).
OK, maybe it doesn't like dealing with the rendered files. I export a self contained quicktime, with the burn-in. Try it again through compressor. Same problem.
I have repaired permissions, I've rebooted... I don't know what else can be going wrong. A fifth disc is burning now, and I'm basically just crossing my fingers, but it looks like it will be another disc for the garbage heap... and these things aren't cheap!
I wish there was something I could tweak, but there's next to no settings for this process out of FCP.
I've tried burning both through the "Share" menu option and through Compressor itself. Both to no avail.
I'm using Memorex BD-Rs and the Pioneer BD-RW BDR-203.
I've made plenty of discs before, without a problem.
I just encountered another error over the weekend where I got the message "There was an error trying to burn the disc. Please make sure there is enough space on your boot drive." There is about 200 GB on my boot drive.
Check the brand of media you are using. I got this same error trying to burn Microboards brand. They work fine in my duplicator, but not my SuperDrive. I realize you aren't using a SuperDrive, but I would recommend trying a different brand.
