Separated Audio And Video Files For Blu Ray

Question

Hi.

I compressed a dvcpro-hd .mov into 2 separated audio and video files with Episode Pro in order to burn a blu ray.

The formats proposed by episode for blu ray are H264 (video - extension .mp4) and ATSC A/52 (audio - extension .a52).

Toast 9 doesn't accept these formats. Neither video nor audio. I suppose it doesen't run separated files like DVD Studio Pro does. But the user guide is dumb on this point.

Could you bring some light ?

Let me try...

 

My suggestion would be to add the .mp4 file to a Toast project and then encode it (without the audio)

I haven't dealt with .a52 files before, but if there is someway to convert that into a .ac3 file (same format, I'm not sure how the file formats work though - it may be as easy as changing the file extension).

Once Toast has encoded the video, take the transport stream it created and copy it back to your hard drive. In the same folder put the audio file with the same name, then add the newly encoded video file to a Toast project. Toast should simple multiplex the two together and you'll be set.

You will have much better luck using an un-encoded movie and letting Toast encode it for you (as MOEG-2 or AVC), but if you DO encode first, remember that AIFF (WAV) or AC3 are both valid formats for Blu-ray sound. There are other more complex formats, but ac3 is simple to make, and AFII or WAV are ubiquitous.

Thank you for these suggestions but my intention was to encode with Episode Pro said to be really better and just use toast for multiplexing the files and burning the blu ray. I will change the A52 extension into AC3 because I think effectively it's the same format but the problem is why toast doesn't accept mp4 video ?

My goal is to burn a blu ray with the Episode encoding quality.

ts is a multiplexed format I can generate also with Episode but the settings proposed for blu ray (in Episode) are separated files : mp4 and A52 (or AC3)
