And then there's Cyberlink and Roxio which I have yet to produce a working BR.

There may be other options as well but Compressor to Encore seems to work well.
BUT Vegas comes with DVDArchitect which burns the whole enchilada.

Yes, in the "near future" ... So far, there is no BluRay in DVDA.

I have done over 20 blu-ray projects with Roxio - DVDit Pro HD - have produced very nice workable (PS3 and Sony BDPS-1) discs - they have just introduced a new build (6.4). The program will produce a volume (BDMV + Certificate) in approx 40 minutes ( 2 hour video at 1920 x 1080, with 4 movies and 5 menus with motion background and motion thumbnail chapters).

The latest version of TSMuxeR (V1.8.4.88) is free, and does Blu-ray (BDMV) authoring onto standard DVD5/9 media.

No menus yet, but it has subtitles and custom chapters.

I burned a XDCAM-EX, 35 mbps VBR 1920x1080 24p collaboration with 5.1 Dolby surround onto a 35 cent disk.

I'm starting to have fun now...

How can someone play the HD-files from a standard DVD player ?
Impossible, I guess...

Then: Can you play these HD-files from a standard DVD disc, if you put them in a BlueRay consumer player ?
Impossible, I guess...

Then, what is left over:
Can you play it from a computer ?
Yes, if you have the correct software, I guess...

Then - result is: You can only play the HD content from a standard DVD on your own set-up practically... (because of the above mentioned compatibility problems.... I guess)

Many "guess",...
Can someone explain the reality ?

I am trying to find out, how to author BlueRay HD-video from my EX1, so that everybody with a consumer BlueRay player can watch my HD-content on their LCD-TV (or Plasma) using the HDMI inputs...

I only know about using Adobe Encore, but never saw some tips and tricks or any other remarks from own experience. Knowing most of the Adobe bugs (especially when editing in Premiere), I am not convinced that latest Encore can really author BlueRay in a stable way...
I don't want to try 5 times after having a first usable disk (at disk prices of 10Euro/each)

any comments for a Windows-based workflow ???
