    I have Toast 9 with the HD plug in and have been able to successfully burn Blu-Ray playable HD discs on normal DVDs. However, it takes over 24 hours to convert from quicktime and burn a 30 minute HD disk.

    Flow is: Canon HD miniDv tape to Final Cut Express 4, export finished timeline as a Quicktime movie, self contained, then drop into Toast 9. Is the time problem with Toast or is my G5 dual 1.8 tower at fault here?

    I reckon you'll get your answers asking at the Roxio forums. It's quite busy down there.

    Thanks for the Roxio tip. The encoding does take a long time, but I didn't find any solutions such as saving the movie as something other than Quicktime. I wonder how much faster a newer Mac would be compared to my G5 dual 1.8.

    Ah... There in lies the problem. With dual G5s, not much can change.
