Create your own “do-it-yourself” DVD disks right out of the box
Video DVD Maker is a quick and remarkably easy tool for mastering DVD disks from your own
home-made videos right out of the box. Plus, Video DVD Maker allows you to deploy your video
project on different types of disks, including CD R/RW, DVD R/RW and DVD R DL.
The program enables you to capture video from a TV tuner, a web camera, a DV camcorder, or any
other video device. You can save the captured data as an uncompressed AVI file, or use one of the
compression methods to save it in the format you want. In addition to the video devices, you can
import video from video files in different formats, including AVI, DIVX, XVID, MP4, MPG, WMV, ASF,
to name a few. To gain this ability, you must first install the appropriate codec, which you can
download, for example, from http://www.free-codecs.com/Codec_Packs.htm.
Video rendering is accurate and blazingly fast. As soon as the project is ready, you can burn its
DVD image onto a CD or DVD disk. The DVD production is configurable with such options as
specifying the project name, PAL or NTSC system, video or audio compression.
Video DVD Maker is perfect for those people who don't want to spend too much time on learning a
complex video editing platform, or want to save money by not purchasing value-added features that
they will never use. Simplicity of use comes with the user interface, which has been designed as a
three-step wizard for creating a DVD with just a few clicks. Now anyone, regardless of their
creative ability, can master and deploy a professional output. At any point of video authoring,
you can refer to the Help file with one press of the F1 button. However, the software is so
straightforward that you can get started without any technical documentation.
Getting started with Video DVD Maker is easy:
Step 1: Capture. Jumpstart your DVD authoring with the Capture panel. Here you can capture video
and audio from the video device. Video, which is being captured, can be previewed in the preview
window. The compression method of the output file can be chosen on the Setup page.
Step 2: Render Timeline. Here you can add extra video files to your project and then render the
time line. The process can be viewed in the preview window. Thanks to the optimized rendering
algorithm the project can be processed blazingly fast.
Step 3: Burn. And finally, you can deploy your DVD project onto a CD or a DVD in minutes through
the built-in burning facility. In this panel you can specify the name of the input, select the
drive and erase the disk, if it has already been recorded. Added to this is the ability to record
VIDEO_TS files, which have been created in other programs.
