Best DVD Authoring Software

by TalonRazor / March 30, 2004 11:32 AM PST

I run a small (2 people) videography start-up company. Been crusing around for a good DVD authoring program and seeking advice. Anyone have any favs for a moderatly priced ($100-$170) DVD authoring software?

If I was to look at speed being an issue, Virtual Dub is all too handy at cutting up and splicing together video content. Price? Free. Look it up at Instructions are there, but can take some time for those that have not been doing any video editing.

This tool is, for me an important piece of DVD creation since many editors don't have much speed when cutting/trimming/splicing.

As to DVD creation, your "spec" is rather lightweight. You may just have to buy a DVD recorder and try the software that comes with it.

I will note that special effects are not cheap and the more you want... Let me put it the way they do in Hollywood... "Bring your briefcase of money."

A good one is Sonic MyDVD Studio Deluxe. Inexpensive & good at capturing or editing VCD or DVD and recording on VCD or DVD.
