Best output format when rendering a project to be burned to Blu-ray?

Piggybacking off this thread where I asked the same question but for DVDs, what is the best way to create a Blu-ray file out of my project? The specs of it are described in that other thread for the most part (1920x1080, 23.976 FPS).

Do I need to do anything special for this render (like Disable resampling)?

I am not authoring my projects Blu-ray's. Therefore, I need to have all bases covered for when I hand the file over to the person doing it - separate audio and video tracks, audio and video together in one file, etc.

Thanks a lot guys. This community has been so helpful with me since March, I really do appreciate you all.

For Blu-ray you have a choice of MainConcept MPEG2 with the Blu-ray 1920x1080-24p, 25 Mbps video stream template or Sony AVC with the Blu-ray 1920x1080-24p, 16 Mbps video stream template . Both will create a Blu-ray compliant video stream. Obviously you can get more AVC than MPEG2 on a disc because of the lower bit rate, but it produces the same quality because of the better compression of AVC/H.264 over MPEG-2.

With what John has posted, does this include the audio stream as well, or just the video one, meaning I'll still need a separate AC3 file to go with the Blu-ray file? Because, again, I'm not authoring the Blu-ray of my project, someone else is. And so I want to give them all the files they'll need, and when I say that, I mean the high end, separate video and audio file, and a generic file that will have both the audio and video in one, like some MPEG2's do. If someone, like John, can give me a basic rundown on this, I'd appreciate it.

[Seth Kopchu] " I'll still need a separate AC3 file to go with the Blu-ray file? "
Yes. Blu-ray and DVD's are composed of separate Video and Audio streams that get repackaged into the format required for Blu-ray or DVD. So yes, you still need to create a separate AC3 file to go with the video stream. You can render this using Dolby Digital AC3 Pro.

John, similar to rendering out a DVD project with ckicking an audio tab and checking "Inclide Audio", does such an option exist for when making a Blu-ray ready file so that I can have both video and audio combined together in one file?

Yes, You can do this to any template. It is not advised because your audio won't be as high a quality but that's up to you.

Actually, for rendering my project out to either MPEG2 or AVC for Blu-ray purposes, there is no way for me to click on the tab in the audio setting to include the audio. Does this mean that for every Blu-ray creation, either by my hands or by someone else's, there will always have to be the separate audio and video track (which I know is the premiere choice but I was still curious nonetheless)?

Wow, you know I never noticed that before. You can add audio to the DVD templates but not the Blue-ray templates. I would never add audio to my Blu-ray renders which is why I never noticed but you are right, Vegas Pro doesn't allow you to add audio.

I guess it does. If you want a Blu-ray quality render with audio use the AVCHD templates instead. That will have both video and audio.
