Can I Prevent Having To "encode" Every Time I Burn A Copy To Blu-Ray?

Question

I have some rather large files that I'm burning to Blu-ray. I get requests randomly and have to re-burn a disk. Is there a way to save the "encoding" so I don't have to wait several hours every time I re-burn a disk?

I'm a Windows guy but you should have a option to save the file as a BD image file.

 

Then you just burn the saved BD image file when you want another copy.

You can choose menu File > Save as Disc Image ...

or you may set the drop down menu for Destination in the main window (bottom center) to Disc Image (the Burn button (bottom right) changes to Save).

The result of the encoding will be saved to a file, with the same content as a disc would have.

 

The next time you need a copy, you can do so via the Copy button near the top of the main window. Choose disc format in the drop down menu to set it to Image File. Select a previously saved Image File, which you can now burn directly (without waiting). Alternatively, you can drag-and-drop a .toast Image File onto the Toast application icon to load it into Toast.
