    I am looking for what I consider to be a relatively cheap (<$50) Blu-Ray authoring program for PC. I have only used Mac based software in the past to create DVDs and I now want to move on to PC based software for Blu- Ray authoring.

    I need something that will work with just about all file types and have a library of menus on hand. Prefer a simple to use program.

    None like that really exist. Your best bet is to use DVD Fab Blu-ray Creator, which can be used to do decent stuff with some fiddling.

    DVD Architect Studio can author Blu-ray with menus and costs $40 but I'm not sure that it converts video and audio to be Blu-ray compliant. You can try it before buying.

    I think Cyberlink PowerProducer Ultra (but not PowerProducer Deluxe) can do everything that you want, although it costs more than $50. You can try it before buying. See www.cyberlink.com/products/powerproducer/features_en_US.html

    It does. I have full featured DVD Architect and it re-encodes video and audio. That's why I don't use it and use MultiAVCHD instead.

    Does it support 4K? How free is the menu creation?

    I am not sure I follow your question.

    RE menu: you can create menus in DVDA.

    RE DVDA itself: it is not free. It usually comes with purchase of Sony, now MAGIX, Vegas Pro video editor (which I have).

    Basically, are you tied to a template or can you design a nice menu ground up with custom background, music, your own buttons, text and everything? Can you make a custom submenu, for example for Special Features, or is there a locked number of menu screens that you cannot change?

    Got it.

    The answer is YES to all of the above. That's why it is called DVD Architect Pro. Lower versions may not have all these features.

    Depending on the price, if I didn't want to do 4K, I'd be all over that. I might be anyway, since my sly editing of DVDFab Blu-ray Creator is quite limited.

    I have previously tried https://tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com/en/product/taw6.html and it may work for your purpose.
    For the nth time, with the possible exception of certain Intel processors, I don't have/ever owned anything whose name starts with "i".
