Question: Best Way To Burn Apple Prores To Bd




I made an export using iMovie 10.1, using Apple PreRes. The info box says: Size 1920x1080, Colorprofile HD (1-1-1), Codecs: Linear PCM, Apple ProRes 422, Timecode.

Additional info from QT-infobox: Framerate 29,97, Bitrate 142.0 bit/sec

I want to burn a BluRay-disc (BD), but not waste a lot of discs trying the right settings :mellow:, so my question is:


What quality setting in Toast '11 must I use:

  • ​Best ? or
  • Custom, and if so, what settings?:
    1. MPEG-4AVC or MPEG-2
    2. Average Bit Rate and Max Bit Rate
    3. Motion estimation?
    4. Select Half-PEL?
    5. Reencoding?
    6. Field dominance progressive I am sure
    7. Aspect ratio automatic or 16:9
    8. Audio Format: Dolby Digital or PCM, and at what date rate?

I appreciate the effort, sincerely

Always use Best setting. Strongly recommend test burn using standard DVD first, to avoid making expensive BR coasters. If necessary, reduce content to fit standard DVD.

I've always used "best sitting," too, with satisfactory results, i.e., no coasters. Then again, I've never tried anything else, so you can take my experience or leave it.
