Jittery Video During Playback Of Blu-Ray Burnt With Toast 11

Question

I'm trying to make a blu-ray of a video @ 1080p, 23.98 but when playing back on a PS3 the video is jittery. After reading several discussions on the matter, it seems it has to do with Toast re-encoding the video, however I have not been able to find a solution yet. Is there a way to change the settings on Toast so that it allows a pass-through of the original file OR is there a compression codec/format which is more optimal for Toast to use to create Blu-rays?

 

I have tried with an uncompressed file and an Apple ProRes file, both with the same result.

You cannot prevent Toast from re-encoding the video unless it is in MPEG 2 format. However, you can make a variety of adjustments in the custom encoder settings window. You access this by clicking the Customize... button and then the Encoding tab and Custom button. Don't set the bit rate too high because that can cause playback problems. Try with either MPEG 2 or MPEG 4 encoding.

 

Something else to try is burning the video as a data disc using DVD-Rom (UDF) as the setting. My Sony Blu-ray player can play video on data discs so maybe the PS3 can do that. In this case the video won't be re-encoded but it has to meet the PS3's specs for a supported video format.

Thanks for your response,

 

I tried playing with the settings (varying the bit-rate and such) and tried it using the MPEG-2 codec but still the same result. I'll see if I can find another blu-ray player and see if it has the same problem. My coworker seemed to have luck using Adobe Encore on his PC, I would have just preferred to be able to make it on the Mac. As this disc is for a client, we needed the disc to auto-play and loop as apposed to using a DVD-Rom setting.

 

If you have any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them because I'd like to be able to use Toast on the Mac and not have paid $20 for a plugin I can't use and 5 shiny blu coasters.

My best guess is if you exported at 30 (or 29.97) fps then Toast would make a more playable video.

I am having a problem with playing back my blu ray burned with toast 11. the scenes with motion are not smooth. I shoot at at 29.97 frame rate. HD 1080i . I have tried different blu ray players but the problem is still there. Anybody got any ideas?

What settings did you use in Toast? It could be that the bit rate is too high for the players. Also, try MPEG 4 instead of MPEG 2 (or vice versa) as the encoder to see if that makes any difference.
