Marco Arment on Why Apple Doesn't Support Blu-Ray ⇒

· Joanthan Poritsky

Blu-ray is a [pain in the ass]( ray-blues), even for consumers. The major movie publishers finally got what they wanted in a home-movie medium: enough dynamic “multimedia” capabilities that they can boast “interactive” extras to sell more expensive “special editions”…

Still, I’d like to see a new version of DVD Studio Pro (or Blu-ray Studio, or Digital Studio) in the next Final Cut Studio update. I agree with everything Marco is saying except he leaves out the phenomenal picture quality of Blu- ray. In the hands of indies, who knows how great 1080p discs could have been all these years.
