Assuming the MKV files are the files I need what comes next? Do I just drag and drop the MKV file into Blu-ray Creator and press burn? Do I need to convert the MKV file to another format to get the full Blu-Ray quality? Are there other steps necessary before? Basically, the question is how do I burn MKV files to a Blu-Ray disc to play in a Blu-Ray player with Blu-Ray picture quality?

MKV is simply an 'open source' file container format. I can contain several video standards like H.264, AAC audio, etc.

The real question you should ask (which I don't know the answer to I'll admit, not familiar with that software) is will that software open (read) those files and then encode them if needed into the right BR standard streams for burning to disc. Putting the files directly on the disc does nothing useful for what you want, your disc burning software needs to be capable of authoring a video disc that conforms to the proper BR standards.

"Blu-Ray picture quality" is wholly dependent on the source video being used.

It looks like the answer, generally speaking is yes, according to their advertising and information on their website:

I am far too busy taking pictures to look for problems with the cameras I use to take them.
