Burning A Blu Ray Disc

Question

Hello

 

I am a Titanium newbie but have used Toast 6 for 7 years or so.

 

I have Titanium Pro on the mac and 6gb ram plus Os 10.6.8. I want to burn a BluRAY disc and I have a 30gb .mov file exported from Final Cut.

 

Can I drag and drop this into titanium and let it compress it and then create a disk image?

 

There does n't appear to be much info on this but maybe I am not looking the right place.

 

Thank you

Assuming you either purchased the Toast 11 Pro version or purchased the standard version and the separate Blu-ray plugin, then all you need to do is install the plugin (by double-clicking on it) and entering its unique registration key. At that point you will have the Blu-ray option available.

 

The size of your source video in gigabytes is irrelevant because it is going to get encoded by Toast as part of the authoring of the Blu-ray disc.

 

You can choose Save as Disc Image either from the File menu or you can click on the button at the bottom of the window that identifies the destination drive. A popup lists disc image as one of the destination options. When you select that the burn button changes to a Save button.

Hi I looked at that and saw how to save as a disk image.

The space taken up on the BluRay disc is approximately 2gb. The file is actually approx 90gb (my apologies ) and is an uncompressed 1920 x 1080.

 

When Toast does the compression is there any control I have over what quality the file on the disc will be or is Blu Ray a standard viewing size? I realise an ordinary DVD is 720 x 576 for PAL systems but what is the size for Blu Ray.

 

I just want to get the best quality I can on the Blu Ray . I just don't understand what is the maximum I can get.

 

Thank you.

You can access the Toast custom encoder settings window by clicking the Quality button and choosing Custom. You can choose either MPEG 2 or MPEG 4 compression and the bit rate. I'm not an expert on what settings are best. I think too high a setting creates playback problems so choose something reasonably high.

Finally got my recorder and burnt a Blu Ray disc. Everything worked very well and the 90 gb ended up as 6.5gb on the disc. It all played back without a problem.

Many Thanks for your help and just to let you know I set all the quality settings to max and there has been no playback problems on my dvd player.

 

Playing back using the roxio player on my mac was no where near as good.

 

Thank you.
