What is the best codec to export for a blu-ray? The project file is Apple Pro Res 4:2:2. We are trying to test some blu-ray disc and see how they work.

Video files to be used in authored Blu-Ray disks can be either mpeg2 or h.264.

Each form of compression lets you make accommodations for the duration of the video: the shorter the video, the gentler the compression. So image quality can vary.

You might want to post the question on the COW's Compression Techniques forum.

We have been doing MPEG-2's for BluRay discs for three or four years now. They look pretty much identical to the ProRes originals when played back.

another vote for mpeg2.

faster to encode than h.264 and looks great.

I'll take the other side and say that I encode using h.264 with the Matrox Compress HD Card. Encode times are lighting fast and the quality is excellent.

The Compress HD card is a great investment.

However the Matrox does not output a compliant H.264 stream for replication. Fine for one offs but that's it.

Would you mind elaborting on why it's not compliant? I am considering the MX02 with the Max option and would be interested in the answer.
