Why Does Toast 9 Encode M2V Files


Mark Pigott

Question

I have a movie that I want to burn, and it is only 13 minutes long.

It is an elementary stream (m2v and ac3). But when I load it into Toast,

it insists on encoding the files. This will take quite a while on the G5.

 

In preferences I have encoding set to Never.

 

What gives?

I ended up using Adobe Encore and got vastly superior results.

 

Here was my workflow 1080p ProRes Timeline 30p in FCP

Export as QT ProRes

Transfer over network to PC

Open up Adobe encoder, set to 1080 29.97 fps, Audio Dolby, 10min, 15target, 16 max

Export to Adobe Encore

burn as blu-ray folders

use image burn to write to DVD-5

 

 

 

Toast will re-encode even if the setting is to never re-encode if the source video does not meet the video DVD spec.

Didn't know you were making a Blu-ray disc. Still, it may be the .m2v exceeded the bit rate or frame rate that Toast accepts as meeting the Blu-ray specs.
