The general process we use here to author to Blu-ray is basically four steps:
1) Create a 1920x1080 image and save as 24-bit .tga
2) Convert .tga to .yuv
3) Encode video from .yuv
4) Author video to Blu-ray compatible discSTEP 1 – CREATE IMAGE
Paint.net or Photoshop are two programs that are able to save to 24-bit .tga images, but I'm sure there are many other image editing programs able to do the same. All of the video used in the project is 1920x1080, so that will be the expected image resolution. Generally just keep the RGB values between 1 and 254, or 16 to 235 if you want to stick to the black to white range. If all R, G, and B are equal you have a gray, and for example if one color is at 235 while the others are 16 you have a primary color. There should be information online for how to use different image editing software, so the most important item is that at the end of this step you need to save to a 24-bit .tga file with a 1920x1080 size.
In the attachment, example.tga is the expected sort of image to have at the end of this step.STEP 2 – CONVERT TO .YUV
For this step we use a program from dr1394. rgbtouyvy.exe is explained in http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...7#post12165597
or the yuv.bat from the attachment will work on the example.tga image.
With the attachment, you can use the yuv.bat to convert example.tga to example.yuv to complete this step.STEP 3 – ENCODE TO VIDEO
We encode using http://sourceforge.net/projects/megui/
After installing those two programs you also need to extract http://avisynth.org/warpenterprises/...l_20060728.zip
into the Avisynth plugins directory. Once you open MeGUI allow the program to update and install the profiles. Click “...” by AviSynth script to select a .avs file for encoding, by encoder settings choose the x264: standalone AVCHD option (spelled slightly differently), and by file format choose the raw .264 setting.
The example.avs in the attachment is setup to encode approximately three minues of video. You will need to change C:\\example.yuv to the path where example.yuv is located, and after doing that you can use the file for your AviSynth script to encode the example (or just put the .yuv in C:\\). The .avs file can be edited to display different images, for example flashing.STEP 4 – AUTHOR TO BLU-RAY
There are a number of programs that can author .264 video to Blu-ray compatible files. MultiAVCHD and TsMuxer are free programs, or there are a number of commercial programs. If the program authors to AVCHD folders and you want to burn to DVD media, then you need to burn to UDF 2.5 or 2.6 like described in step 4 from http://club.cdfreaks.com/f142/bd2dvd...-guide-232165/
Generally creating disks compatible with Blu-ray players is discussed in http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...815296&page=65
Anyway, that's the general overview of how to author chosen images to Blu-ray compatible video. If there are specific questions of problems encountered, and what to do with different steps, I can address those items. The example.zip attachment should contain the following files:
