Thanks in advance for any help you can give me. Is anyone on the forum using PP CS3 for commercial Blu-ray replication, and is that working out OK?
My replication house is saying they have tried Encore as well as other authoring programs and didn't find Encore sufficient to encode everything properly.
If anyone is using Encore for replication, can you post a quick workflow of what steps need to happen to get basic movie files and menus in a usable form for replication? I'm working with an HDV movie edited originally in FCP.
In reading other posts on this topic (Yes, a little late) most of the problems discussed are about costs for licensing, not about specs. As more and more small replication outfits are now replicating Blu-ray, my question still stands about formats and specs. Is Encore able to create proper files, and if so, what kinds?
Thanks a lot.
I believe from what I've read that Encore can't create a master for replication, because it can't provide the required copy protection for Blu-ray. Replication houses can do this for a fee. One such place charged $2,500. I don't know how that compares, but it's something to start with.
