If you're planning on using Encore for blu-ray burning, I found this guide helpful. It's published by Adobe and has the compressor settings needed for blu-ray export into Encore.

Just went to the Los Angeles Final Cut Users Group and Bruce Nazarian spoke eloquently about this workflow. Basically, it is FCP -> COMPRESSOR (MPEG2 HD) -> ADOBE ENCORE -> TOAST 9.2 (with blu-ray plugin).

The amazing thing is he said you can burn up to 30 minutes of Blu-Ray material on a standard DVD (redlight) and still playback on a BDR player (tested on Sony and LG). Holy Crap - You mean I don't have to buy Blu-Ray Media? The directory structure just has to be intact when you create it in Encore (then it's copied in Toast).

This guy was a great speaker and it's inspiring to hear pioneers develop creative work-flows without breaking the bank.

I thought I read that

I thought someone had posted the BR to DVD idea but didin't know how or how long the play time would be!!!

That is huge for me as most of my shoots result in a less than 30 min end product. It's definitely worth a try ( or three :).

What is redlight? Red laser, DVD-R? A google for red light DVD is yeilding some very off color links :)

SO, I guess the $1300 question is do I need to buy Encore or Premier bundle?

Thanks to all this is great info!
