I have been attempting to burn a 20 minute clip of an HD quality program onto Blu Ray using Toast10. After an hour and a half, it's only 35% done with the encoding process. Is there any way to speed this up using any other sort of software, enhancements (turbo?), plug-ins, etc? I'm scared to see how long it would take to burn a 3 hour program - a few days??!!
Anyway, here is my workflow:
1. Using Elgato EyeTV3, save 20 minute HD clip through cable box connected to MacBook Pro via Hauppauge HD PVR.
2. Using EyeTV3, export/convert ".eyetv" formatted clip as high quality .mp4 file (1.6 GB for 20 min clip)
3. Using Toast10, attempt to burn .mp4 file to BD-R, using custom settings (avg bit rate of approx 25, no re-encoding).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
