Please forgive my ignorance of all things computer .....

I just purchased a new high def camcorder (Panasonic HC-V700). I am old school and want to have a physical DVD to view now and pass along to my children in the future. I also do not want to "downgrade" the frames which would negate my purchase of a HD camcorder.

Here is what I have:
MacBook Air (2011)
4TB external hard drive
Toast 11
Panasonic blu-ray commercial dvd player

I know I need an external blu-ray burner (recommendations) and appropriate discs.

Question is, in order to burn the movie content so that it is able to be viewed in the commercial blu-ray player, do I need anything else?

Thank you in advance!

I keep seeing references to a plug-in for Toast in order to be able to watch the burned video on a commercial player. Is that needed in addition to my Toast 11 or is it just extra hype?

Looks like you got everything. Toast is good. Or at least it is what I use to burn DVD movies.

It depends on the version of Toast you have. The Roxio site is almost deliberately misleading/woolly.

If you have Toast 11 titanium you need the plug-in to burn to the blu-ray video standard.

But I'd check your version specifically and contact them direct to be certain before laying down any money.
