Terje, today GG is working on bluray to make these changes.  Theywill be checked into the git repository but no new builds yet.  I willbe doing more thorough testing tomorrow.

0) Yes. Adding the 4 1440x1080 template as in wikipedia table.
> And the HD Blu-ray format does support MPEG-2 at 1440×1080> 1440×1080 59.94i  4:3
> 1440×1080 50i      4:3
> 1440×1080 24p      4:3
> 1440×1080 23.976p    4:3

1) Not at this time.
This is a nuisance for sure and occurs in other cases too; rather thanjust throwing in a change that will have repercussions elsewhere, thiswill have to be studied further.  I have been tasked to recreate thesituation you are describing and although I have been BD creatingall morning long, I still don't quite understand what is happening.May be a while before that happens.

2a) Yes. Will be saving the "Work path" to be used again the next time.2b) Yes. Timezone will be looked at to determine default FPS.

3) Sort of Yes: The current default choice is faster for testing and users who "just want to make a bluray" as easily and quickly as possible so wedidn't want to change the default from being bluray-something.  However,he modified in bluray opts file the "profile=baseline" to  "profile=high" andadded a bluray-lo opts for the original.  Processing will take longer fornewbies.  This was only a compromise.

4) This requires learning Java script in detail for BD-J.  It is not fun - unlessyou like that sort of thing.  The Programming Blu-ray Disc hardcopy bookwe have devotes almost 2/3 of its content just basically explaining this andreally doesn't even provide enough information to actually code it up.  What I understand is that there are 2 ways that the player is supposed to be ableto handle a disc -- #1 it should just start it (so I don't have to lift a finger whichis how our 2 work) and #2 use the java script to allow manipulation.  Anotherhowever, GG says if I look around the internet and can find a completetemplate that is already coded up for the entire structure, he could add thatto bdwrite and just substitute the correct values for titles, etc.  So I am looking.

5) Adding code to save the bluray rendering batch job so they can bechanged.  This shows up in BD Create window.  This was an oversight in theoriginal code.6) Interlacing is now being handled for Top Field First, etc.
Answer to another email quoted with > below:

Yes, the bdwrite program is fast and is started inside cinelerra.
> Shortly I follow this simple test procedure with Cin 5.1 :
> 1. File > Load raw video file(s) from /video
> 2. File > BD render and use work path  my ~/Cin_Video
> The bd_#project folder is created in the ~/Cin_Video folder containing
> three files
> bd.m2ts  bd.sh  bd.xml
> When BD-render finishes the bd.m2ts file 100% (ETA 0:00:00), the
> additional udfs file and the EMPTY udfs folder is created and Cinerella
> is automatic closed (quitted) immediately. Should it really?
Yes, the bdwrite program is fast and is started inside cinelerra.
