    Blu-ray error

    I have Toast 16 Pro and am wanting to burn a blu-ray for the first time. I select Blu-ray Video and it says Enable Blu-ray authoring ... would you like to enable this feature now? I click 'OK' and it says 'There was an unknown error. Would you like to try again?' That's as far as I can get. I'm on High Sierra 10.13.2.

    Blu-Ray Will Not Play Back All Movies

    I've aborted and then resorted to force quitting Toast 11.1. I deleted the app, restarted, reinstalled, restarted and loaded the app. The Splash menu is still missing. I still have the older version 11.0.3 and when I load that the Splash menu is there. Looks like 11.0.3 burns unplayable discs, and 11.1 can't even make a disc image. Pretty pathetic. I'll try Toast 10, as I still have that as well.

    Blu-Ray Will Not Play Back All Movies

    Oh dear, it isn't working at all. It took about 36 hours this time to re-encode everything, then it started writing the disc image to my desktop and it is stuck at 99%. Been like this for two hours. Colour me unimpressed!

    Blu-Ray Will Not Play Back All Movies

    D'oh - I mounted the disc image but it is re-encoding everything. I think my installation of Toast may be at fault. Never mind. I will let it complete, then trash the files you mentioned and see if Splash comes back. If it doesn't, I'll do a total reinstall. I'll post back the results.

    Blu-Ray Will Not Play Back All Movies

    I made a disc image of six HD videos in Blu-ray format with a menu, and saved it to my desktop. It took over 24 hours to do this. I burned the disc and put it in my player. Up came the menu, all working, and I played the first video. All working so far. Unfortunately all of the other 5 movies, which were exactly the same format, give an invalid disc error and will not play. Does anyone know why? I know I haven't done anything wrong here. Very frustrating. I should add that I used Toast 11.0.3 on MacBook Pro 2.3GHz i7, 8Gb RAM, OSX 10.8.2. I have downloaded 11.1 and will see what the result is. The first thing I noticed was that the menu style I had used (Splash) had gone! Great start...

    Blu-Ray Authoring Stops At 99% Done

    According to the blurb, version 11.0.3 will "Resolve an issue where some High Definition DVD projects and Blu-ray projects may hang at 99% of completion" No, it does NOT resolve this issue. Blu-ray encoding is still hanging at 99%. This is not just poor - it is unacceptable.

    Jerky Blu-Rays From Toast 10

    Thanks for your reply. It was a true blu-ray but I discovered the problem and it was my own fault. My footage was fine but I had also added a slideshow that I'd made in FotoMagico but it turned out I had set the framerate incorrectly in that and so Toast had altered my movie to match it, resulting in it adding frames and making it jerky. I re-did the slideshow at the same frame rate as my movie and redid the Blu-ray and it's all fine now.

    Jerky Blu-Rays From Toast 10

    Apologies if there is a thread about this, but I couldn't find it. I am using Toast 10 on a MacBook Pro and have created a 1080p movie using footage from my Sony AVCHD Handycam. If I drag the footage onto Toast and make a DVD it plays back fine, but if I make a Blu-ray instead it plays back jerkily, especially on panning shots. I have resaved the HD footage as an MP4 file and put it on a Blu-ray and into my PS3 and it plays back fine, so it is something to do with the Toast encoding. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm currently just using all the default settings in Toast and don't know much about bit rates or data rates etc. Thanks for your help.
