    Hi All!
    I've recently been accepted into southampton film festival, and have been asked to supply them with a Blu-ray version of my film. The trouble is I don't know how to burn a blu-ray. I have a macbook pro, use final cut to edit and Idvd to bur my dvds. If anyone has any advice on the best way to go about burning my film onto a blu-ray, I would be eternally grateful!

    You need a separate blu-ray drive to burn the disc. Superdrives will neither read nor burn blu-ray.

    If it's a one time thing I'd burn to DVD then try to find a friend or a shop that would copy it to blu-ray.

    You can do it only in AVCHD for a decent HD picture and then bitrate is left for only AC3 sound. You have 10.8Mbps to play with.

    But long story short - with a Toast and HD plugin, you are able to master a BD disk directly from video clips with basic menu and also burn a externally mastered BDMV folder to disk.

    you can also replace the superdrive with a Panasonic UJ-267 Blu-Ray player/burner and use Toast Titanium 11 with the HD app
