Good Blu Ray Settings for Authoring?

Hi,

I'm authoring a Blu Ray for my film that is playing on screen at a film festival and I would like to know a good way to burn a high quality and safe playing Blu Ray for a theater.

Can anyone tell me good settings: Average Bit Rate, Maximum bitrate, etc? Dolby audio? Dialog normalization? And anything I may not know of?

My film is 15 minutes long. I have both Compressor and Toast. Any preference?

Thanks!

Sandy

Film festivals usually have a list of specifications to be fulfilled. Ask for these or they might refuse your film.

They don't tell you the best authoring settings. Festivals just say "auto-play, no label, etc..."

Any thoughts on authoring settings?

For 15 minutes you can use whatever "speed" profile you want and set the average bitrate high enough (try not to go beyond 25Mbps, as some players may have problems reading the disc). I am not familiar with Macs, sorry.
