Bd Encoding?

Question

Let's face, I have been trying to burn my old Vid movies to blu Ray.But the encoding takes over 12 hours. Then when starting to write which also takes a very long time. And at times it will get to about 65%. and error will pop up and all that time is wasted and a wasted BD is now garbage.

Does any one know is there is a third party that will encode each video file and all Toast 10 will just "WRITE. NickD

I only know about Toast. But I strongly recommend choosing Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button. That way you don't risk ruining a disc. There can be problems when the drive has to wait for many hours before it can start the burn. Burn the finished disc image to disc using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window and it should complete without any problem.

I think you should know that when you do choose Save Disk image. It to encodes just as long. I still think a third party should encode first and then it should Write only. I have just notice there's a Software; Squeese which I have to study and watch the Videos "How To". http://www.sorensonmedia.com/video-encoding/ NickD

Yes the encoding is the same regardless of choosing Save as Disc Image. But there is less risk of wasting a disc. Toast will multiplex rather than encode a video that meets the specs for the kind of disc you're trying to create. If you are using something else to do that encoding I suggest doing tests with short clips to check if Toast shows multiplexing instead of encoding when you initiate the save as disc image. If you're sure that the video meets the specs and Toast still wants to encode, go to Toast's custom encoder settings window and choose Never re-encode. If Toast still insists on encoding even if you select Never re-encode then the video is outside the specs Toast sees as needed for that format.

 

You mention that these are "old vids". What are their current specs. Maybe there is something in the Toast settings that I can advise about.
