This is the official discussion thread for the AfterDawn Blu-ray Encoding Tutorial. It is a series of guides intended to walk you through the process of preparing video and audio for authoring to Blu-ray. The following installments have been published so far: Lesson 1 - Prepare Source Video Lesson 2 - Create AviSynth Script Lesson 3 - Chapter Points and Bitrate Lesson 4 - Encode Video Lesson 5 - Encode AC-3 Audio Lesson 6 - Advanced Bitrate Calculation Lesson 7 - Advanced Audio Processing Lesson 8 - Convert Text Subtitles To Images Lesson 9 - Prepare A Still Menu Background Lesson 10 - Make Menu Buttons With GIMP Please post any questions or comments here and I will try to respond to them as quickly as possible. If there is something specific you need help with, especially if it is not covered in any of these guides, I will do my best to help. If you have Blu-ray authoring questions you may be interested in the next series of guides I am working on which cover that subject.
