Blu-ray disc using Toast 10 and acceleration via the Elgato Turbo H264 HD

Question

I am aware of the Elgato Turbo H264 integration within Toast 10 for converting files. However I would like to know as to whether it is possible to create a Blu-ray disc in Toast 10 and use the Turbo H264 during the file encoding process to hardware accelerate the encode time which Toast would normal do via software.

 

Has anyone tried out the creating a Bluray disc or Bluray DVD (AVCHD Disc) using Toast 10 and an Elagto Turbo H264 HD USB hardware accelerator. If so how did you get this to work within toast?

I too am interested in the simple question: does the Elgato Turbo.264 HD speed up Blu-day encodes with Toast 10 (+BD Plug-in)?

 

Elgato themselves say it DOESN'T work with full size HD 1920x1080 - is that correct? :(

Bump! I guess we're not going to get an answer to this?? :(

Toast does not use the TurboHD when encoding to MPEG 4 for Blu-ray disc.

Ah OK - thanks for the answer. That's a shame.

 

I wonder if there's a technical reason why not - maybe the Turbo.HD chip cannot do the right MPEG-4 format for Blu-ray or some such reason?

 

It would be good if it could. (Hint to Roxio, if it's just a software interface thing.... Hint to Elgato if it's a hardware thing...) :D

I have tested the elgato dongle for making a mp4 h264 files and successffully build a bluray with Adobe Encore CS5 by the way.

 

Beware that elgato only do single pass cbr files... and I noticed that the color looks a bit darken.

Just to bump this - I am still interested in hardware-accelerating Blu-ray encoding with Elgato Turbo.264 HD dongle. Any joy anyone?

 

(I don't have CS5.)
