Exclamation What DVD making software do you recommend (to make dvd's with menu's)? - 05-28-2007, 00:00 | posts: 2,076 | Location: PERSIAN GULF, IRAN, EURASIA.

Hi,
I had some home made video and image files i wanted to burn to DVD, but i wanted to make a professional looking menu for it.

What software do you recommend i use? And/Or if the software already has a professional template for me to use as menu's?

Thanks.

ohh thats a good q, i want to hear the answer too.

just now i used vista windows dvd maker, but if i choose 4:3 or 16:9 the picture is still not right and i get at 4:3 left and right black lines and at 16:9 i got black lines and the actors are stretched.

maybe someone who knows how to solve that. the source of the vids is allready at 16:9 so i dont get it why that happens?

Nero can, but not as advanced nor as good looking as others.

ConvertXtoDVD is the best and fastest 1click converter.
But unfortunately for you the menus are pretty basic... :/

If you want the same quality menus as the common pressed DVDs coming from Hollywood, you can try searching for the now discontinued Spruce DVD Maestro.

The "linky" is fine, but the MaestroSBT is just a subtitling utility.

I always use ATP DVD artist - it's the easiest to use and gets the job done quick. There's a free trial available and it's like 10x cheaper than the competition. http://download.cnet.com/ATP-DVD-Art...-10904909.html
