  • Authoring Blu-Ray

    Hi,

    A simple one, what is everyone using to author SD and Blu-Ray DVD’s?

    I am used to using encore DVD 1.5 but it doesn’t do BluRay.
    I render straight out of edius via procoder express and am looking for something similar to Encore’s workflow and features, esp since you cant buy encore cs3 as standalone.

    Many thanks,
    Manjit

    The only one around (unless you want to spend 50-60K) is DVDitProHD from Sonic/Roxio (look it up at Roxio's website) - works well for me but has been quirky for others - lots of features.

      I've been using Roxio for about 5 months, burning Blu-ray's, no problem, I bring is "canopus HQ avi's" and let roxio do the rest. PS I do have a problem with SD DVD's, ie same footage, letting Roxio do the conversions, but I get Jaggies on Text and Hi contrast footage...still working on that end of it. Currently using Roxio 9 for my SD's...Gary PSS the quality looks great.

        You need to upgrade to Encore CS3. It does SD, Bluray, and Flash from the same project. I also have Roxio, but prefer the workflow within Encore.
        Encore will do H.264 Blurays, which Roxio will not do.
        Go to this link. You can purchase PProCs3 and you get Encore CS3 included.
        You are looking at $300 for the package.

            If you mean between PPROCS3 and Encore CS3, I don't use PPRo.
            I own it, don't use it.
            I have used Encore since v.1 and the integration between Photoshop and Encore is beefed up in CS3.

                It depends on what I am doing. If I am doing an H.264 project or a project that I need to turn around SD and HD in a short time, I bring in a full raster uncompressed file. I am still not secure enough with the way Encore handles Canopus files.
                Other than that I send in an MPEG2HD file from Procoder 3 and a standard version of the timeline or uncompressed master file.
