Will Toast 11 Import H.264 Blu Ray Files?

Question

Hi folks,

 

Some clients have inquired about blu ray delivery, which I've yet to add considering Apple doesn't have a proper delivery method imho.

 

That said, I see Toast 11 might be the option! :)

 

If I'm editing in Final Cut, could I use my CompressHD card (which is near real time processing speed) to output blu ray h.264 files and then import

those files directly into Toast 11, create a menu (like in DVD Studio Pro for DVDs) and then burn?

 

I ask b/c it looks like Toast can do the conversion to h.264 from a self contained .mov file (if i've understood what i've ready properly).

 

I'd like to use the CompressHD card b/c it is wickedly fast and the encodes are solid as well - to date, I've been using this card for iPhone etc.. type files.

 

Thanks in advance,

Keebler

I don't know. You can buy Toast as a download from Roxio and if it doesn't work for you get a refund within 30 days. Toast does have a "never re-encode" option but it will still re-encode if it determines the video is not to the specs Toast requires. As for the menu, are you familiar with Toast menus? They are very basic so it's not like what you can build in DVD SP. You can customize the background with your own image, though.

You could import h264 files made in Compressor in Toast 10. I imagine you can do it in Toast 11 as well.

Keebler27,

please save yourself a ton of stress, money and aggravation....

 

DO NOT BUY ANY ROXIO PRODUCTS!

 

Toast 11 will import anything you want, it just won't be able to export it.
