Burning Blu-Ray in FCP or Compressor issue
on Oct 7, 2010 at 11:30:44 am

We have a problem with burning Blu-ray in Final Cut Studio 3

XDCAM EX HD timeline
Share
Create Blu-ray
Play on start.
It encodes, it burns the Blu-Ray with a LaCie Blu-ray writer.
No errors.

But the Blu-ray doesn't play on any Blu-ray player.
It gets ejected or it just doesn't play.

Anyone have an idea what might be going on?

We also tried it directly in Compressor with a Selfcontained Quicktime file from the FCP edit. Same result.

Hi Paul,
If I'm not wrong, with FCS you can only make non standard HD DVDs, playable only in Mac.
You can do it with Toast. Compress the files in Compressor. Don't let Toast to do it.

The new "Share" function does allow FCP 7 to make Blu-Rays (if you have a Blu-Ray burner)... but I've found it to be buggy and very slow.

We tend to instead use QT reference movies brought into Compressor and then use Adobe Encore to put the files together.

Get yourself Bruce Nazarian's book "Fast Path to Blu-ray"

I'm sure it's a user error issue.

I've burned many blu-rays will excellent results.

Please Enlighten me.
By the way, i thought this was a user forum where users try to help eachother out.
Not a bookselling forum.

Hey....I got into my car this morning and it wouldn't start! Any idea what the problem is?

Picking up Bruce's book will definitely fix your issue.

Never had an issue myself...maybe you should hire someone to do this work?

I'm explaining the workflow and asking for advice. That is what a forum is about.

But good to know. Thank you.

Next time when a user asks: My FCP is crashing on startup , what can i do?
I won't say: Trash your preferences/cache files first to see if that helps.
But i'm gonna say: Please buy my book, because it's a user error.

Yeah...and everyone gave you advice from making an HD DVD to using Encore to buying Bruce's book. Advice, i guess, you chose to ignore.

its fairly idiot proof so go through some of the tutorials and see if you did something wrong

Your link doesn't work properly. Is it some kind of a search engine thats better than Creative Cow?

I get a lot of help from Creative Cow users, which i appreciate very much.
And i also give a lot of help to other users that have issues. For free!!

This problem is not about HDDVD, but about Blu-ray.
It's also not about Encore , it's about FCP/Compressor.

Give and take is a nice concept. It's exists for ages.

Buy Adobe Encore if all you need is a "Play Only" BluRay Disc. We've been doing this for I guess four years now. 500 or so BluRay discs, no errors. We make an ISO file in Encore and then burn the disc either in Toast on the Mac or with Nero on the PC.

Buy DoStudio from NetBlender if you need a fully authored BluRay disc, but you'll need a PC to run it. We run it on a nice HP Workstation which sadly was only $1500 including the BluRay burner. I'm sure a comparable Mac Pro would be about $6500. :)

I've not heard of much success using the Share function and since Apple has made it VERY clear they don't support BluRay, it doesn't surprise me. Encore is pretty bullet proof for making Play Only discs.

We use Compressor to make the MPEG-2 and AC3 files with results that pretty much mirror our HD originals. I spent about a week tweaking and testing the Compressor settings back when we first started making BluRays.

One big piece of advice, get a few BD-RE discs so you can test to your heart's content without having to burn through BluRay discs. We have 5 of them here and they have saved us a LOT of money over the past four years. Would rather make a mistake with a re-writable than one time use discs.

Thank you very much Walter for the advice. Much appreciated. I'll discuss this with my colleages.

That's really a good idea.
