Create a Blu-ray Disc for HD Video from Class on Demand takes an HD project from Final Cut Pro and creates a Blu-ray Disc for it. However, Final Cut Pro has only a limited ability to create Blu-ray Discs. So this session looks at three ways to create high-definition optical discs: using Final Cut Pro, Roxio Toast, and Adobe Encore. Along the way, we will explore the differences between Blu-ray and AVCHD Discs, standard compression settings and data rates, and take a close look at authoring Blu-ray Discs using Adobe Encore.

Audience Level:
