Blu Ray Burning With Toast 11, Output Imovie '13 Mp4

Question

Hi,

 

I use iMovie '13 (latest), Yosemite and Toast '11

 

I used to burn HD-DVD with Toast 11 from iMovie output (1080p25, played perfect on Harman Kardon Blu Ray player.

I want to burn Blu Ray (have Asus BD burner now). The output from iMovie is 1080p25, MP4

 

 

Questions:

1. Can I burn a Blu Ray with Toast 11 using this iMovie output; I read somewhere that 1080p25 is not a valid Blu Ray format, and I do not want to end up spending hours of rendering and throwing away BD-discs

 

2. what Toast settings would be advised

 

Sincerely

Should work fine. You can take a clip and burn the Blu-ray format to a standard DVD disc as a test.

You mean burn a disk image in Blu Ray format and then burn the disk image on a regular dvd?

And what BD settings for toast would you advise eg bitrate, encoding (remember the output from iMovie is 1080p25, MP4) etc..

Toast has a high-definition DVD setting for creating Blu-ray format videos on regular DVD discs. I only suggest it as a time saver (and saver of more expensive Blu-ray disc media) for trying out a few minutes of your video to see how it looks when played back on your Blu-ray player.

 

As for settings, you might just choose one of the presets. If you do go to the custom settings then probably choose MPEG-4. But don't set the bit rate too high or it can cause playback problems. Maybe there are others who have tried different settings. See if anything is suggested at kenstone.net.

Thanks; but I already know the HD-DVD option works. Now I want to know if the BD-option works with 25 fps progressive, cause I read somewhere that 108025p is not a valid BD format....... Guess I just have to try

My point is that the format is the same so if the test clip works then the larger one burned to a Blu-Ray Disc also works. They are both Blu-Ray format videos regardless of what kind of disc media you use. Since you needed to test if it works I was just explaining a shorter way to learn if it that's the case.

Thanks, got it! :D And tried it (eg 1080p25 MP4 export to toast, BD-image from toast, them BD-image from toast to DVD).......................it worked!

Now I can start using Blu Ray discs!
