  • Burn to Bluray - Option Grayed Out

    I have been having great success creating projects then burning to blu-ray from the timeline using Edius 6.06. Just two weeks ago I burned a slideshow of images and music. Prior to that burned about 10 disks with archived avi clips.

    My latest project is a slideshow. Regardless of what I do I cannot get the option to burn to blu-ray.

    Here's my work flow.

    File -> New -> Project -> Check Customize Box -> Select Video Preset -> Choose HD 1440 x 1080 50.94i

    Regardless of what I do, I cannot get the blu-ray option to NOT be grayed out when I go to burn the disk.

    I have tried probably two dozen new projects with various settings and cannot get the BD option.

    Tried both images and/or avi clips.

    Tried exporting to a 1440 x 1080 50i AVCHD file then re-importing into a 1440 preset also. Still no luck.

    Just not sure what I am doing wrong.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

          Not seeing what you are referring to. I'm browsing the Grass Valley site. Where might I find version 6.07 to download?

          Thanks..Alan

              Install version 6.07. No difference.

              General question:

              If the template I load meets blu-ray specs, does it matter what type data I add to the timeline?

              Do certain types of data improve the ability to burn a disk to blu-ray.

              Again, the odd thing for me is I did all this two weeks with great success.

                  Duplicated the settings and no BD.

                  If I were to print to file then import into a blu-ray template, what would be your suggestion?

                  Thanks...Alan

                    Can other program see your blu-ray burner? maybe it is dead.
                    If you want to output a file, then use the blu-ray exporter, or MPEG2.

                      Edius sees the burner. I can burn a DVD but no BD option.

                      Export to MPEG2 the import in 1440 50i?

                        You can export to what ever you want as long as it is blu-ray compliant, then use another program like encore or to author and burn your BD until you figured out what is wrong, if you want to use Edius again, I don't see how it would help, it doesn't matter what files are on the timeline, as long as your project is blu-ray compliant it should work.

                          To be sure, in Edius you click on
                          Export/Burn to Disc/Style and there your BD button is grey out?

                            That is correct.

                            I followed your suggestion to export to MPEG2 1440 and I then imported into a 1440 template and I now get the BD option.

                            That is the only format I have exported to, and imported from, that has displayed the BD option.

                            I do not understand it but I am happy I now have the blu-ray option.

                            Thanks to all for their feedback.

                              You should try to figure out what the problem is, this is not a good way to make BD, your files are being encoded twice, once from Edius and then again from the BD program, but your problem is really weird.
