I have created a movie with final cut studio 7 ,

output quick time . DVD creation with menus is going very well but when I want to format and burn , I get a file on disk HVDVD_TS and not a movie on the disc to see on the TV.

Also, I downloaded the new version of Compressor 4. However , completing the film on Final Cut Pro 7, I can not send the movie to Compressor. If I put the movie in Quick Time to Compressor, the  system runs forever and I can not get anything better in the end.

At the end , I used Toast and then I get a result. Except that I connected a LG blueray burner on my macbook pro 17 ' and I do not see it on the desktop. It is grayed out in the left column of the Finder. Howewer, it burns. But I can not read the burned discs on the MacBook .

The HD is complicated !

I may it was better  to go to Final Cut X ?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Core I7, 17"

    This comes up a lot because of the HD DVD option in DVDSP. It's not Blu-Ray. HD DVD is a dead format and shouldn't be used. To be clear, there is no Blu Ray authorring capability in DVDSP.


    There is limited Blu-Ray capability by creating BD disks directly from either FCP or Compressor, You can also use the properly-encoded output files in Toast. How well your LG drive works with Mac's is another story.


    FCP X won't give you anything better for what you're tring to do.


    Good luck.

    I don't think you can "play" blu-ray movies on a mac (I could be wrong on this).  Do some googling for mac blu-ray software players and see if you find anything.


    Have you tried playing a blu-ray you've burned on a blu-ray settop player?
