Blu-ray Made Easy: A three part guide from Avid editing systems to Sorenson Squeeze to Avid DVD by Sonic

We just re-discovered this gem on the Avid user forums!

I've created a three-part tutorial on Blu-ray burning with Avid Media Composer, Sorenson Squeeze, and Avid DVD by Sonic.

Download the tutorial: Blu-ray Made Easy [PDF]

It covers the following parts:

• How to export from an Avid HD project (in Avid Media Composer)
• How to use Sorenson Squeeze for creating Blu-ray files
• How to burn to Blu-ray using Avid DVD

To burn a Blu-ray DVD you must have the following:

• Avid Xpress Pro 5.6.x / Avid Media Composer 2.6.x or higher
• Avid DVD 5.6 or higher
• [optional] Sorenson Squeeze 4.3 or higher
• A Blu-ray burner (internal or external will work)

Make sure you are using compatible versions of the Avid editing system with Avid DVD (e.g. for Avid Xpress Pro 5.7.x use Avid DVD 5.7 / for Media Composer 2.6.x use Avid DVD 5.6)

*This tutorial was used with P2 material shot at 1080/24p, from a Panasonic HVX-200. The results may vary with XDCAM HD, HDV, RED files, etc. but the processes should be similar to this tutorial. All feedback is absolutely encouraged, from others who have used different formats for this process.
