Correct settings to create a basic BluRay DVD
on Feb 11, 2011 at 8:25:24 pm

From FCP I have exported a 1920 x 1080 mpeg2 .mov file using teh export setting HDV 108050i from the timeline.

I then imported this file into Compressor and just used the BluRay template. The only thing I changed here was to stop the "Make BluRay" disc action once the files had been produced.

I then opened DVD Studio PRo. Selected the HD DVD format for PAL. Upon importing the HD files only the audio file imported with a message stating the video file type was an incompatible format

Can anyone please advise the correct settings/file types to create a basic BluRay DVD disc?

Output fro FCP
Correct file conversion type for compressor
Correct import setting and movie type for DVD SP

and yes I have an external BR burner

REgards,

Wayne

You cannot use DVD Studio Pro for this at all. You must burn straight from Compressor using the job action template. DVDSP does not do BluRay. The HD DVD stuff is for the now defunct HD-DVD standard...those players are no longer made. Do not use any of the HDDVD settings in DVDSP.

If I didn't want to use a compressor template, which would be the correct if any settings from the drop down list on the left of formats, if any

You can do what you already did, however you cannot use the resulting files in DVD Studio Pro, as it has no BluRay authoring capability.

You can author BluRay discs in Adobe Encore, but if you are going to do that, you might as well do your encoding in Adobe Media Encoder.

What I am saying is that Final Cut Studio has very limited options for BluRay creation.

Your options are using the share Blu-Ray option if you have FCP 7 or create an h.264 blu-ray file in compressor and create and burn your Blu-ray using Toast Titanium 9 or 10 with the BD plug-in.

The easiest thing to do is export a ProRes file right off the timeline of FCP into Toast 10 and burn the BluRay disc.....you can even use regular DVd media for up to 30 minutes of material. But, you must have a BluRay burner to make the master.

Use Toast...it is a literal snap.

I have a HDV timeline in Final cut Pro and want to export and burn bluray in Toast. What export setting should I use. I'm thinking Quicktime movie ProRes 1920x1080 self contained.

also what settings should I use for Toast? mpeg2 mpeg4 or automatic?

Is it possible to create menus in Toast? Or do you need Encore?

Thanks,
