Am I Missing Something Here?

Question

1. I get a new iMac.

2. I get a new BluRay burner.

3. I make a movie in iMovie.

4. I get TOAST 11 PRO and burn a new BluRay movie.

5. I check the new BluRay movie on my home BluRay player and all is well.

6. I now cannot view the new movie from the disk with TOAST on the iMac.

 

HOW can TOAST MAKE a freaking movie and then NOT allow me to VIEW it??

 

Am I missing something or did I just waste $100.

Here are some options, none of which give full menu navigation:

 

1. Insert your Blu Ray into your Blu-Ray burner/player (assuming of course you have such a burner/player).

2. With 'Blu-ray Video' selected, go up to 'Extras' and select 'Roxio Video Player.'

 

0r,

 

1. Same as above.

2. Use VLC (free) to play your blu-ray.

 

Or,

 

1. Same as above.

2. Use 'Blu-Ray Player' (~$150) to play your blu-ray.

 

I prefer the third option.

 

Of course, if you save the BDMV folder created by Toast on your hard drive, you can use any of the three methods without have=ing to insert the disk into a blu-ray drive.

Once I made the BluRay disk, I also made one for the computer. It shows BD on the icon and I can view it from there however, my question would be "Is playing it from the hard drive the same quality as playing it from the disk?

 

1ST goal is to check my work. 2nd goal is to watch other movies VIA the disk on the RETINA display.

Go to the Toast Extras menu and open the Roxio Video Player. It will play the videos on a Toast-burned Blu-ray disc. You also can use it to preview the movies before burning to disc by choosing Save as Disc Image and then mounting the disc image. There are several ways to mount a .toast image file. The one I use is control-click on the file in the Finder and choosing Mount It from the contextual menu.

 

There is no difference in quality playing the video from the disc image or from the disc.
