Blu Ray burning in Toast and/or Sony Architect

I just got a Lacie d2 burner with Toast 9. I am running FCP 6.0.6 and have a 20GB Quicktime MOV(720p60 DVCPRO HD) I need author out to Blu Ray. I have read that some people have had problems with Toast burning out to Blu Ray. Of course I found this out after I got my burner with the copy of Toast. I know I need a plug-in to burn to Blu Ray, so I probably will just end up upgrading to Toast 10 pro anyway.

So has anyone had success burning out to Blu Ray in Toast? If so, should I set it up in Compressor as an MPEG 2 before, so Toast doesn't have to spend so much time encoding? You know how DVD SP does this where if you choose the right format in compressor, it doesn't have to encode it.

Also any thoughts on appropriate bit rate etc would also be helpful.

In addition my other option would be to burn to blu ray from parallels running DVD Architect.

Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Jon

Dunno I am trying Nero on W7 in Parallels

Don't know on that. I use Linux with my Blurays. You could use Ubuntu to burn if toast doesn't work costs $0.

I am trying Nero's trial. Because I don't like that I cannot put an audio file to play on the menus. I understand Toast isn't iDVD and Apple foolishly is not supporting Bluray so I am stuck with either spend big $$$, no music I am looking at Nero.
