Blu-Ray WorkFlow (Mac)

Curious as to what workflow is working for folks to go from blu-ray discs to atv…

Here’s what’s working for me (MacPro Quad 2.66 w/ 12 GB w/ Pioneer BDR-203)

  1. MakeMKV (http://www.makemkv.com/) - free beta to decode blu-ray to MKV (~40 min for 2 hr movie -> 25 gb file)

  2. Handbrake (customized the ATV '09 preset for higher quality and I force 720p resolution & set RF -> 16.75 (1.5 - 2 hrs -> 4-5 gb file)

  3. ftp with Cyberduck to movies and play under the Files menu on ATV.
