Any recommendations how to make BluRay discs from Medai100 HD. Just got a test project done and looking for ways to watch to regular bluray player. Also, is there a way back to HDV from Media100? Thank you.

Export as e.g. ProRes or whatever codec you are using.
Get Toast with BluRay support
Burn with Toast to BluRay.

Yes but Floh, don't you have to use an encoding app. before going to Toast (it has to be version 10?). I thought that a variation of H264 in Compressor has to encode.

Toast will compress as well.

You can also just open the exported movie in FCP 7.x and export to Bluray from there it will compress and author.

Both ways gives you limited menus and titling, but the video is great in both.

... and of course you should have a Blu-ray burner.

If you have an hour finished project, to export and burn to BluRay Disc, what is an average estimated time to complete this? Just cut edits. It might depend on the systems specs but there must be a close guess of the rendering time. My mac is a quad 3.0 older Xeon 10gb ram. Any ideas? Thanks again.

Gerry,

It looks like we are using similar Macs (although I have only 8GB RAM) so this estimate should be close. Using a self-contained export from Media 100 into Toast Titanium 10, you will be looking at approximately 5 to 6 hours before the disc is ready. Most of that time is for encoding... about 5 times the length of your video. I always do a test run on a re-writable disc and if it's good-to-go I'll burn as many as required before quitting Toast. I also keep a back-up copy of the BDMV folder (Blu-ray equivalent of the Video_TS folder) and use that to burn additional copies if required at a later date - Toast 10 offers this function as well as making DVDs from Video_TS folders.

Hope this helps.

I use a program that is called Discribe Bravo 7.0 with a Primera Bluray burning Robot (it burns and prints Bluray and standard DVD's).

Once you have made a Bluray/DVD, Discribe makes an image from it and then it will reproduce as many as you want, including confirming burn (this takes longer) on the Primera Pro robot.

The initial 1 hr disc takes about 2 hrs to burn with Toast or FCP (2.66 8 core 12GB ram, with a fast RAID), then the copies take about 20 minutes each w/o verification, with verification about 40 min.

We produce several short run up to 100 Blurays as well as lots of standard DVD's and CD's with this system. We even have a shrink wrap machine , clients love this. They can buy 20 Blurays from us shrink wrapped for $200.00. Bluray blanks are now down to $4.00 or less in bulk.

I just set up the machine to run overnight, in the morning I have pile done. Standard DVD's are way faster 7-8min for 1 hr long w/o verification 15 min verified.

I had a question earlier how to output to HDV. Is that possible? Through Firewire? From Media 100HD? I saw a stand alone BluRay burner that can record High Definition BD. Anybody tried this? I am sure this will cut hours of encoding and burning. I'm do weddings a lot and 6 hours burning is just half the program I previously estimated. The usual length is appox. 2hrs. Thanks again.
