Yeah, bought this one straight away on their site, tried it,
and is very easy to handle , is it possible to extend the number
of DVD menu-graphics templates ?

Not sure, havent got that far yet. I dont think I will find much use for it actually as it doesnt suport Subtitles and cant import Chapters (have to manually enter them). I also continue to get error messages about my CCE encoded m2v files saying not compliant while the mother-of-all authoring Maestro eccepts them fine and produces compliant dvd streams.

One use I could see if you want to put 2 movies onto the one dvdr with a simple menu. Encode to 2gig with DVD2One, etc. Then import the VOB files directly, set up menu and compile.

Thanks, Chickenman, I only did on project yet, on a DVD+RW
with my Canopus hardware avdc100 and (demo) Scenalyzer
software, i like the simpleness of TMPGenc DVD Author,
no re-encoding, and the controll you have for the menu-making,
i guess you’re right, that there is some room for improvement,
but hey, it’s just released, and maybe the designers are reading
this too…:slight_smile:

This prog seems pretty decent and fast but it also appears to be very picky on the files it accepts. I too have been getting a number of error messages regarding DVD compliancy.

Also to this point, while I can put something transcoded with DVD2One or DVD95Copy into it to create a menu, the reverse is not true. If I want to “shrink” something created with DVD Author, neither DVD2One nor DVD95Copy will accept it.

I’m assuming it’s due to the fact that DVD2One is fussy about files that were altered by another prog, other than a ripper, of course.

That’s a shame, because DVD20ne is also one of my favourites,
I hope some of “them” come with a update, but i am not
shure, who is the “defective one”

Maybe this is one to look at… http://www.mediachance.com/dvdlab/index.html. You can get a beta on the forums!

Looks nice indeed, couldn’t find any link to the beta software,
only “This software is not yet released.”
