Blu Ray authoring options
on Nov 13, 2014 at 3:25:10 am

It looks like this entire authoring section is dedicated to Encore. Which I understand is basically be abandoned by Adobe. I use After Effects to build my compositions and export HD videos. Until now I was satisfied just having them stored on my HDD for watching later, but I was considering trying to create a bluray disk to see how it plays in my PS3 and my PC. I'm starting to think it's not worth the time and effort.

The only programs I own for "authoring" is Sony's DVD Architect Studio. From what I understand you can use this program to make a blu-ray menu. BUT the big question is what kind of video formats will it accept. Since I have not touched Encore I just don't know what file types are accepted to create a bluray disk. Can anyone tell me a good format to render from AE that will play on different drives, like a PS3 or PC? That would at least be a start. Thanks in advance.

Blu-Ray supports the following formats:

*MPEG-2 HD (.m2v, .m2p, .mpg, .mpeg)

*SMPTE VC-1 (.vc1)

*MPEG-4 AVC (.avc, .264, .h264)

MPEG-4 is the newest and most efficient when it comes to bitrate vs overall quality so I would recommend that. As for resolutions and framerates that are compliant, it seems like everywhere you look gives you a different answer, but according to the DoStudio manual these are accepted:

The list on Wikipedia is slightly different:

Hope this helps!
