What is Blu-ray authoring?

Blu-ray authoring is the process of creating and compiling content, such as video, picture, and interactive menus, into a format that can be burned onto a Blu-ray disc. This process involves encoding the content in a specific format, arranging it in a logical order, adding chapter markers and menus, and then creating a disc image that can be burned onto a Blu-ray disc.

The process of Blu-ray authoring requires specialized software and hardware, as well as knowledge of video and audio encoding, compression, and disc formatting. Blu-ray authoring is commonly used by video production companies, studios, and independent filmmakers to create high-definition Blu-ray discs for distribution or sale.

It is important to choose a suitable Blu-ray authoring software that meets your needs when burning videos and pictures onto Blu-ray discs.
