Burning Blu-Ray With Toast 11

Question

I'm having a little trouble with the playback quality of the Blu-Ray discs I'm writing with our OWC Mercury Pro. I've tried exporting the video as a quicktime movie with both FCP 7 and Compressor. When watching the video it seems very jumpy especially during our shots that include lots of movement. Anyone know why this may be? Thanks so much!

Thanks for the suggestion! Would you be able to tell me now to lower the bit rate?

You mentioned using Compressor so I was assuming you used it to create the MPEG 2 video file for use in Toast. Tell me more about how you prepared the video for Toast and what settings you used in Toast. If Toast did the encoding then the video doesn't have a very high bit rate and the problem is something else.

 

Do you have the same playback problem if you play the Blu-ray video using the Roxio Video Player? It is in the Toast Extras menu.

I just sent the project to compressor and exported it as a Quicktime movie. I also tried just exporting it as a Quicktime movie from FCP as well and got the same result in playback. I basically followied these instructions as I prepared it for Toast http://eshop.macsales.com/articles/howto-burn-bluray-toast

How does Toast describe the video and audio specs when you've added the video to Toast? Something to try is to choose Custom as the quality and click the Customize... button. Click the Encoding tab in the window that appears and change the video format from MPEG 4 to MPEG 2. Also put a check mark next to Half Pel. See if that makes any difference. Try this with a short clip that you know has the problem. Choose Save as Disc Image instead of clicking the burn button. When the disc image is finished select it with the Mount Disc Image command in the Toast Utilities menu. Then open Roxio Video Player and select the mounted disc image to open and view.
