    Even if I'm not Anton, I'm answering about too.
    Handbrake does not output Blu-ray compliant files!

      Andreas - I quote the Internet - "H.264 is a video compression format to encode HD video content in a container like mp4, avi, mkv; it is widely used for the distribution of digital video streams, such as videos from YouTube, Facebook and the iTunes Store. The H.264 is also known as being one of the standards for Blu-ray Discs." Therefore, my question should have some kind of answer! I thought Handbrake could output an H264 Mp4 file?
      Stay well.....

        The entire specification provides a wide range of different parameters and conditions and the encoding can be of more or less complexity which relates to processor capabilities on the decoding side. Blu-ray expects specific H264 files which handbrake can't generate.
        There are too many details about the entire specification to put it into an answer. Handbrake generates H264-files of great quality in a MP4 or MKV container intended for web use or playback on a computer or other devices.

          While Handbrake, or more precisely the codecs it has access to, don’t have specific Blu-Ray export profiles. X264 can export compliant video with additional scripts. Maybe have a search to see if you can find the X264 scripts, they may work in Handbrake. While elementary streams are usual, different authoring applications can use various containers such as MP4 etc. You can also look into demuxing if elementary streams are required.

          Is your Robot three laws safe?

              Hi Alan

              I would not use Handbrake for Blu-ray. What software are you using for Blu-ray Authoring?

              the EDIUS Blu-ray exporter is not too bad, only the menu quality of EDIUS is below poor

                Just my 2 cents.

                I use the TMPGEnc AVC plugin to make blu-ray compliant files (I also have the MPEG plugin too) I have traditionally fed these to an old Encore CS6 that I have in order to author the disc. However, since Adobe killed Encore, Magix has DVD Architect (also does blu-ray). I picked up Magix DVD Architect 7 also a couple of years ago on a humble bundle sale but never really started using it as COVID pretty much killed any event videography I was doing on the side. Magix also offer Movie Studio which can burn Blu-Ray.

                To be honest though, Blu-Ray support in software is pretty limited and sadly, I would be surprised if it lasts much longer.

                  Thanks for all your input, guys. Appreciate the technology you explained. Anton - I've always been using EDIUS to author my Blu-Rays and have been quite pleased with the result - even on my 4k 14ft. theater screen. I was just inquiring and always delving into technology that will improve whatever I was doing. There's always a better way to do everything - so it seems! Inquisitive minds just want to know!

                    I author with DVDArchitect and use EDIUS Bluray preset in an interlaced project. I do my main edit UHD progressive, export a HQX file that I use both for TMPGenc to encode for DVD ( 2 pass VBR ) and then use HQX file in an EDIUS interlace project to create the Bluray file. Author just once in DVDArchitect and use both the DVD and Bluray files to create DVD and Bluray with the same menu structure etc. Burn with Nero. TMPGenc encode for Bluray does not seem to work in DVDArchitect whatever way I have tried. Actually use HQX as the main file whether editing in EDIUS , Resolve even Vegas for that matter. As an EDIUS output ProRes would work too but Vegas and Resolve do not output ProRes so HQX is better to just go between any of them.

                      I use the avc plugin from tmpgenc to export mp4's from within Edius and have used tmpgenc auhoringworks in the past to create blu-rays with a menu by using a HQX file, tmpgenc software has proven to be extremely reliable/stable in the past creating dvd's and blu-rays. I"m glad though I don't have to do this anymore as now everything is delivered in HD and 4K mp4 to my clients via download.

                        Tmpeg Authoring works well and does excellent menus once you understand to think sideways, back to front and upside down

                        I always exported mpeg2 HD Elementary streams from EDIUS which are accepted by Tmpeg without any further encoding

                        like in your case, Blu-ray is dead here, I deliver mostly on USB now with small orders still wanted on DVD and for that I use DVD-Lab Pro which is also fed with mpeg2 elementary streams from EDIUS

                          So am I really a beginner if I use Edius 8's H264 exporter and the generated files look great to me?

                          I export [email protected] CBR 50Mbs, superfine, HW encoder.

                          Only downside, a 4 minute timeline takes about 15 minutes.
