Toast 19 Pro - NO RE-ENCODE Bluray Video


Recommended Posts

Hello Forum,

I have a question regarding using Toast 19 Pro. Unfortunately, I already had major problems activating Bluray authoring. Now I have the next question and I need help with it.

Briefly to the situation: So far I have used Adobe Encore to burn a Blurays. Unfortunately Adobe is no longer developing this and I need an alternative.

So far I have exported my films with Premiere Pro as h264 Bluray with 25/30 MB bit rate. I then loaded the files directly into Encore and outputted them directly as Bluray WITHOUT RECODING.


So I need a program which burns my videos as Bluray WITHOUT recoding or authoring with a simple menu.

Now I came across Toast and the colleague in the chat (before buying) had confirmed that this works.


Unfortunately, when I try to create a BD, I cannot find any way to import my files (m4v and wav) in the program. Furthermore, I have not found a way to adjust the settings so that my video material is NOT re-encoded. The 25/30 MB bit rate should also be retained.


Where can I find the settings? What exactly do I have to store in which menu? Which files can I import? Should I use TSMuxer to edit the file before importing it? It is important that the files are NOT re-encoded.

If this function is not available, I will claim my money back, otherwise I will not be able to use the program.

I've just run into this problem myself.

Toast 19 Pro refuses to import elementary m4v and wav files from Pr that are BD-legal.

If I export a muxed H264 mp4 file from Pr, Toast imports it just fine. But then it insists on re-encoding it no matter the settings in Toast.

I have to see if the audio is the problem; maybe AAC audio in the mp4 file will work better.

hello jeff, unfortunately i find it very sad that such a simple function does not work.

I also connected the files to a stream with "tsmuxer" - that doesn't work either.

the support says that a simple "passthrough" is not provided and the program cannot do this.

so I got my money back because the software cannot be used!

Sorry you had to do that. You may not have to give up on the software just yet.

I uninstalled with CleanMyMac X and reinstalled a freshly downloaded version. 

I exported from Pr as H.264 Blu-ray with bit rate set to 10 Mpbs and 15 Mbps max.

I muxed the video and audio from Pr in tsMuxer as a .m2ts file and used that as the source in Toast. I set Toast to it's default settings except I changed the encoding bit rate to 10/15 max to match my Pr export and I set re-encode to Never.

I had a successful burn to disc image with no re-encoding by Toast. 

I'm going to try a 20 Mbps/25 Mbps max export and burn now.
