Just tried my first blu ray with my Mac Book Pro using FCP 7 HDV 1080i60 sequence - share -blu ray-selected create blu ray disc- output device- hard drive - creates a disc image, burned using disc utility with our Mac Pro with a internal Pioneer Blu ray burner with a standard DVD-R. I've read that this work flow works but mine the play back stutters (audio & video). Does a better brand of DVD-R's make a difference or do I just need to use blu ray discs?
