Toast Hd Dvd Video & Final Cut X With Compressor



I purchased Toast 11 Titanium to make High Definition DVDs that will play on a BlueRay Player. I'm actually 99% satisfied, but Toast still converts the video, exported from Final Cut Pro X, by default, Apple ProRes, before encoding and burning the DVD. While it is doing a great job of that final conversion, there must be SOME loss of quality in the conversion. My question is, is there a format that I can export from Final Cut and or Compressor that Toast will be able to grab and burn without conversion? Thank you in advance for any help or suggestions.

I wonder this as well and would need to do a lot of different 1-minute exports to see if anything works. I do know that Toast multiplexes rather than encodes the HD MPEG 2 videos transferred from my TiVo. But you I'm pretty sure you can't export MPEG 2 from FCP. I want to throw the ball back to you. If you choose MPEG 4 and Never Re-encode in the Toast custom encoder settings window, can you find any MPEG 4 settings that Toast won't re-encode? You can make a very short clip and choose Save as Disc Image with Toast to see what happens.


Nobody has reported a setting that works so far.
