Highest quality Publishing option
It looks like my Blu-Ray burner is on the fritz so I am looking for the best alternative. I am also seeing the handwriting on the wall that Blu-Ray is fading in popularity. At issue is that I have been ecstatically happy with the quality output of Blu-Ray. Recent attempts to publish in MPEG seemed to fall short.
What is the highest quality publishing option? Is it still Blu-Ray?
I use the publish video file option to create 4K UHD MP4 files with the "Extreme Quality" setting.
Then to get to 8K videos, I upscale the 4K file using Topaz Video.
I realize almost nobody has 8K TV's, but in a couple years they will.
I don't want my videos to become obsolete.
My question is: how do you deliver that 4K or 8K file to a client? I give access to the file on a Google Drive but most of my clients are older(I do funeral/memorial slideshows) and don't know what to do with that. If they live near me I also put the video file on a USB drive and give it to them to use at the church or funeral home.
I find that supplying the client with a DVD or BD is the simplest way to give them the product I'm creating for them.
Any other suggestions anyone?
I can write a 4K MP4 file to a USB drive.
It will play on most smart tv's.
