I can deliver in just about any format needed by a client. I started BlueRay in January or so of 2006 and have made somewhere around 3000 or so BRD discs; not one failure, either. I also did REAL HD-DVD discs from early 2007 through the end of 2007. Most clients get BRD.

Thanks everyone,
could you elaborate on a workflow,
I am on a standard 8-core: Two 2.8GHz, Quad-Core Intel Xeon 5400 series processors,

I realize Adobe Encore is a must, I am getting it....
what burner do you suggest I need to buy, to burn to a Blue Ray media after all encoding
authoring done?
Friend of mine at this point switchеs to a PC computer...
is there a way to stay on Mac platform all the way in process?...

Any of you done everything on a Mac?

Thanks in advance!

I have been editing on my mac and using my PC (Encore) to make blu-ray dvds. It would be nice to be able to do it all on the MAC but what can I say... DVD Studio Pro is behind schedule here!!

Not yet. Perhaps next year I will deliver on Blu-ray. I am giving clients a copy of their highlights video on DVD encoded with AVCHD. This will play in most Blu-ray players and is HD, although not quite as good as true Blue-ray.

Just for info, all three clients I have mentioned it to this week have taken up my offer of Blu-Ray even if it just to have until the players become cheaper (or the fiance convinces the bride about why a PS3 is a better wedding present than a towel bale!)

We are making the switch from Sony Vegas to FCS. Vegas 8.0 will allow you to export the timeline directly to Blu Ray, with no menus. The recent update to DVD Architect will allow you to make a basic menu structure. I am trying to figure out the best way to export video from Compressor and import it into DVD Architect.

I would like to be able to offer a 'Blu-Ray' copy of a wedding to potential customers but am not sure about how to approach the duplication companies.

Does anyone know if it would be possible to transfer a completed DVD Studio Pro authored DVD disc (with finished Menu) directly onto a Blu-Ray, thus preserving the Menu and DVD contents exactly as they were created on the DVD?

All suggestions greatly appreciated. I edit on an iMac by the way and don't have any 'Blu-Ray' facilities myself.

To my knowledge and practice, you have to do authoring in Encore, on Mac platform to burn it or to make .iso file.

OWC Mercury Pro 6x Blu-ray LG GGW-H20L Super Multi Blue External is out, great news, now can record 'Blu-Ray' on a Mac!

We've been offering blu ray about a year now and we've had four clients request it so far. We edit, export and compress on a mac and then transfer the files to a PC and use encore to burn.. other than encore being a pain to use its working well..

In what way? Encore in combination with photoshop almost gives me unlimited design freedom that no other authoring program can offer. I even find it very easy to use, if I see a design in my mind I can build it with Encore, real fast en real easy.
