How Can I Burn The Best Quality Blue Ray Disk?

Question

Hello Guys, I am new to Toast 11 and am burning i-moive 11 HD quicktime short films to toast 11 Blue-Ray format. I have to say the DVD done this way is amazing and totally kicks butt on burning my films to standard dvd inside the mac. However I would like to know the best possible setting for the highest quality Blue Ray burn using toast 11. I notice that under (Customize) in the B/R menu you can set the bit rate like up to 26? Should I do that? or should I just leave the burn settings at best? Or? Any help from you veterans will be most appreciated.

Thanks

Steve

Hi Steve,

 

That's funny, I have the opposite experience, Apple's Final Cut Pro X file > share > Blu-Ray outperforms Toast 11 Blue-ray burning. I don't know why, must have to do with codecs used. Don't know about iMovie, though. But maybe moving the nitrate slider up will improve Toast's rendering and output quality? Haven't tried that one, thank you for bringing it up.

As you will have guessed, I'm no rookie either, still a lot to be learnt. But then, this will always be so.

Don't ever move the bit rate to the maximum. It can cause stuttering on playback because of so much data to be read. Personally, I just use Best quality. What I suggest is taking a couple-minute clip that has some action along with strong contrast of dark and bright areas and do a test using different settings. Choose Save as Disc Image for each setting. Mount the disc image (one way is to choose Mount image file from the Utilities menu) and select it using Roxio Video Player from the Extras menu. Play it at actual size so you can examine its quality. If one is noticeably better than another then you have your answer. You may need to empty the Roxio Converted Items folder between each session where you've changed settings so that Toast encodes rather than multiplexes the video.
