I finally got the Blu Disc Studio Lite to work - with some help of the developers (thank you!). The software is a bit daunting for people who just want to put together a simple bluray disc and not some fancy all moving all roling James Bond type menu. But that is what you can do with Blu Disc Studio.
The Lite version has its limitations but is quite capable of creating your bluray disc - but you need to put some thought in the project. Then it allows you to make a disc without transcoding, with multiple audio and subtitles.
For those who want to try and not figure it all out again, I made a small user's guide for the Lite edition as "work in progress" but when interested, drop me a line as it is not online: theo de klerk @ gmx com (spaces become dots, except around the @)

Has anyone actually used the Lite version? It requires you to demux your .ts files - only for the tool to remux it.
The addition of chapters causes it to go into unresponsive mode for minutes only to turn up with a single chapter: the start. Any attempt to play, move, delete such chapters sends it into unresponsive mode for minutes again.
I'm running a 3 GHz Intel 4 Core processor with 4GB memory that may not be the fastest available, but has no problem running anything else.
Although it is one of the few BD creators that will not re-encode your video if not needed (and thereby pretty much maintains the size of the video file instead of doubling or quadrupling it in size), has multiple audio tracks and multiple subtitles, it is not intuitive by a long shot (in my book). Unfortunately some parts are unresponsive and thereby make this likely tool not very productive.
