Windows 7: DVD Authoring

DVD Authoring

Now that Windows Movie Maker has been updated to 2011 …
I might be able to use Windows 7 for my video project.

It’s compatible with my Sony camcorder MPG2 videos .. And I don’t have to convert the Video format.
I’m now looking for a good DVD authoring app for Windows 7.

I liked the old Sonic in my XP computer so I tried the new Roxio version in Windows 7.
It’s not as good as the old Sonic .. Can’t control the Menu .. Each menu is limited to 4 clips ..
And of all the transition options .. There’s no fade To/From black that I can find …
And why not a WS menu format ???


Windows 7’s version of DVD maker seems to be a joke.
Any suggestions ??? .. Just something to make reasonably simple DVDs ??

I'm thinking Studio is like Photoshop .. It requires a long learning time.

If you are looking for a paid for Video Editor/DVD Authoring software then Corel Video Studio Version X2 will do you proud. If you consider going to HD in the near future then go fo Version X3 but X2 has a better built in authoring tool than X3 which needs an extra stand alone piece of kit (free when you puchase the full program.) X2 is still available on Amazon here in the UK, I dont know about the US though. Would be very happy to assist with either version if you wish. Can use PM if you prefer!

Well worth a try. You can download X3 on trial basis for 30 days but you can't download the new authoring module until you buy.
We await your further video questions with baited breath

Got several hours of uploading to Utube ... Then I have to update the web page .. before I can get to trying something.
I'm wondering if there's a limit to how much I can upload to UTube ??
Adding about 1.75gig today.

Don't think HD is in my future .. My new cam isn't really HD .. (Sony DCR-SX63)
and HD would be overkill for what I'm recording.
Better sound would be nice .. It sounds much better in live surround sound.
When I bought it .. The saleslady said something about a better USB plugin Mic ???

Attached is the DVD menu (page 1 of 2) that I can create in my Old Sonic .. And I kinda like it.
The default was music which fits what I'm recording .. But maybe I'd like to make my own background.
The new Roxio only allows about 4 Thumbs per menu ... and I usually have a bunch.
Something like this is what I'm looking for .. hope this makes sense

Ulead/corel (same product) is at least as user friendly, but has more options as to what you can do with the video itself (since it is video editing software). I haven't played around too much with their standalone authoring program, but it is solid as far as I have used it.

He's actually trying to uncoil the mic cord ...
But that's not what it looks like in the video ..
This gave me a chance to play with captions in WLMM .. Here
