Step 2. Configure the program for burning a compliant Blu-ray disc if you like, just switch to the 'Options' tab and configure the settings.

Step 3. Back on the 'Information' tab, you can now click the 'Calculate' button if you want to see the size of your compilation.

Step 4. Now we're ready to burn so click big 'Build' button. If you're prompted for a volume label, you can either use the one suggested by the program or type in a new one. Click the 'OK' button when you're happy with it. The program will then burn your files to the disc.

As soon as the burning completed, you can enjoy the blu-ray movie with the newly burned disc freely!
