Hi,

Is there a way to burn a BD-R from FCPX that has two videos (Projects) on it?

I've read a suggestion to paste the second video into the timeline of the first and set the second video as Chapter 2 - not what I want.

I tried selecting the two Projects in the Browser and choosing Share/ Blu Ray but nothing happens.

Anybody use Toast? I have the latest version and it successfully burns a disc with 2 movies that will play fine on a computer, but in the blu ray burner on my hdtv the title screen is black. I can even blindly navigate with my blu ray player remote and by trial and error select and play both videos, but that's of course not acceptable.

I even tried doing the blu ray from Compressor, but even in the batch window it makes each video a separate blu ray.

Any other suggestions before I give up and just make two BD-Rs?

Thanks!

Apple Blu-Ray support is minima. One video per disc. Sorry.

Hold the phone! If you still have Low Sierra you can install Adobe Encore if you subscribe to their softwares. They no longer support Encore of course because we are not meant to have physical media any more.. it's all about "The cloud" these days. Plus the studios wrecked that train before it started because they didn't want a situation like we had with DVD where anyone could author them.

ANYWAY, if you have a machine running Low Sierra or earlier you can install Adobe Encore CS6 (6.0.0.492) which is the latest release of the product on the Mac. You have to download the entire CS6 legacy suite I think, but just delete everything else besides Encore. You can put as much stuff on a disc as it can hold. I've had nearly 50 different timelines and projects on a dual-layer Blu-ray disc before, complete with fancy menus. One of my Blu-rays even had a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style where the video would end and you'd choose what the character would do next, many many different timelines.

So yes it can all still be done! But High Sierra will break it!

I did try Toast - it didn’t fully work. See my initial post for details. Thanks though.
