The answers to your two questions:

Does it create UHD Discs? No.

Are there any plans for this support in the future? We currently have no future plans to support this, but that might change at some point.

Hi

. . . . If not, are there any plans to get it to in the future? . . . .

Very unlikely, there are no burners or disks (AFAIK) available that for 4K UHD, the disc format is a proprietary format and as such the licencing has 'restrictions' and high cost.

. . . . DVDFab has UHD Creator . . . .

In my experience it does not work.

Back when Blu Ray came out the medium was heavily locked down for several years. Now it's easy to rip and author them with 20$ software at an electronics store. I remember when DVD was like this too.

Just wait a year or two (or three) and you'll be making HDR10 UHD 4k blu rays easy.

To add to that, not many people have cameras that can capture HDR video with sensors that capture approx. 9-14+ stops with Log, RAW, and HLG picture profiles. You'd need such a camera to record such files that can be turned into HDR10 4k files for the UHD 4k blu ray standard - but nothing is stopping you from authoring an SDR 4k file with useless HDR10 metadata and putting it on a disc - that is what they may be afraid of - flooding the market with discs that are not up to spec. Some smartphones can shoot and encode HDR10 4k video but I doubt that would look good on a TV because of the bitrate and storage issues on phones.

Hi

While waiting, most 4K TVs will play video from an external USB drive or Memory stick, and if on your network the video can be streamed to the TV from a computer or laptop - of course you get no menus, however you do have a method of playing the video.

Very true, you can even burn the video file onto a BD-50 or BDXL-66 or BDXL-100 but not all players can play that from the disc with a file explorer. A USB stick or hard drive is a good way to play UHD HDR10 content at the moment. Most TVs support it from USB, yeah.
