burning blu-ray aspect ratio error





I have been having this problem for a long time. When I burn blu-ray content on a normal DVD or when I burn an actual Blu-ray DVD some of the content is squished into the top half of the the screen on playback. When I play those same files in Quicktime it has the proper 16:9 aspect ratio that I expect but not the the burned discs. PLEASE help I am slowly going insane.

Anyone have an answer for this? I tried burning my first DVD with 1920x1080 quicktime file and I get the same result as Chad.


1) My FCP timeline is set to 1920x1080 and when I export the timeline to a self-contained QT file and play it with quicktime, the video fills up the screen.


2) I open Toast Titanium (with my new HD Plugins sucessfully installed), drop the QT movie inside, pick the menus etc. and burn.


3) When I insert the DVD into my PS3, the menu comes up beautifully in the correct aspect ratio and fills my 46" LCD TV.


4) But once I play, my movie has the problem that Chad's does.


What am I missing or doing wrong?

Okay, so I figured out what the problem is.


1080 @ 30P = Works

1080 @ 24P = EPIC FAIL with the squish

720 @ 60P = Works

1080 down converted to 720 @ 24P = Works but looks horrible.


Apparently Toast (or the Blu Ray function) does NOT like 24P in the 1080 flavor.


So this doesn't work for my needs and it would have been great if there was some note on it before someone buys the product. I'll file a ticket and ask for my refund.
