Encore Blu-ray Loop-Point Update

We just discovered a mistake we made in our modification of an Encore Blu-ray image to fix the loop points and menu transitions for seamless playback.

As we mentioned earlier, we still had a small pause during playback on a set-top player at the loop point and menu transitions (but no pauses on a computer). After discovering an error we made in how we set the seamless connection condition value, we corrected our mistake and watched as our modified image now had 100% seamless playback on a set top Blu-ray player.

We are now very excited about these modifications and are ready to get started on a tutorial. Due to the complexity and non-intuitive nature of the BD Edit interface, it might be easier to comprehend a video tutorial instead of a written one.

We will get started on this soon!

UPDATE: We’ve discovered additional issues with how we modified the navigation commands, and are currently researching a better method of modifying the commands that doesn’t cause these problems. We will announce when these problems have been resolved. Stay tuned!
