I've never dealt with Blu-Ray files, but I'd like to convert my short film MOV file to an M2TS file for a festival. Does anyone know how I can accomplish that on a Mac, or otherwise point me in the right direction? Thanks!

My immediate need is to create a transport file. I'd also like to create Blu-Ray discs, but I don't have a Blu-Ray burner or burning software yet. If you have any suggestions for the best setup, I'd appreciate them very much!
Robin, What they are asking for is either an M2TS file or a physical Blu-Ray disc so they can copy the M2TS file from the disc onto their hard drive. I have Apple Compressor and I find that by using the "MPEG-2 Transport Stream, 15 Mbps" setting I can create an M2T file, but I'm not sure if that's the same as the M2TS file that they are asking for. I think my preference for authoring would be to use Toast, but I don't have anything yet.
Thanks very much for your help!
My understanding is Steve Jobs didn't want Macs to do blu-ray so left that capability out. Perhaps Toast can do it, but you have to buy a blu-ray drive
Robin I think Jobs was right. I worked at Image Entertainment a leading DVD/Blu-ray independent distributor and we saw the end of media coming a long time ago and were early developers of streaming content. Good to know Macs can do blu-ray as it still comes up sometimes, especially for some festivals. I have both Encore and Studio Pro but mainly use Adobe Media Encoder for almost everything now as physical media keeps disappearing
