Hi all...

Would be interested to hear comments on what people would recommend as good
authoring software. Looking for something that will take the video from a
miniDVD camcorder and allow me to edit it and save it in a format ready for
burning to a 4.7Gb DVD.

Out of interest what format is the video converted to prior to burning to
DVD?

Regards,

Paul

Hello there,

I use MM 2.1 and MovieDV 6 for capture/editing and Dazzle DVD Complete for
everything else......very pleased with the results..I did try Nero and Easy CD
6 and 7 ...did not like either

Basic. Sonic MyDVD comes with most burners and works fine for the
very basics. Otherwise, Roxio EZ-CD creator 7 or Nero 6 Ultra with both
do it w/o extra programs.

These will all do the basics w/o much money spent, and do the job fine.

Above that?

One program: Ulead DVD Workshop. Simple to use, yet very powerful.
Highly rated by www.dv.com magazine and others, does a lot w/o going
into technical specifics ala Sonic Scenarist (what the movie companies use).

I would highly recommend DVDlab from Mediachance.com. Very simple to use
but is capable of doing highend authoring aswell. The chaps website is well
worth a look as he has loads of helpfull programs on there.

Good luck,

Paul.
