This addresses all parts of DVD authoring. It supports two video, eight audio and 32 subtitle tracks for DVD. It can write a CD (not VCD) or create a DVD image that can then be burnt using DVD-writing software. It can also directly write to DLTs but not to DVD writers.

A project is organized in the form of menus, titles, cells and chapters. Menus can be graphics or video with interactive buttons.

You can have an unlimited number of menus or submenus. A good feature here is that it can use Adobe Photoshop files
directly as still images for menus, including layer data for various states of a button. Titles are a way of grouping logical selections of movie clips. A cell corresponds to each segment of a video clip on the video track, and contains the corresponding audio and subtitle tracks. Chapters are the logical markers in the video that do not interrupt in the playback and can be used to jump to various parts of the video. Most functions of the software are drag and drop making it easier to use.

Everything that you import is called assets and is sorted automatically into three parts–clips, menus and images–and the whole thing is called an asset library, from where you drag objects to the timeline for development.

This is not a movie capture or editing software, but is used during the last step in DVD creation. So, you need to create a storyboard and have your movie clips ready before you start work on this software. It supports limited input formats: DV AVI is supported, but only certain MPEG-2 files like MPV, M2V and MP2 are supported. The menus accept transparencies only if they are created in Photoshop.

In a nutshell, a comprehensive DVD authoring tool. You would of course need to do a lot of preparation of the basic material for your projects using other software for video and graphical editing.
