GUI_for_dvdauthor doesn't re-encode.mark0326 said:Thanks for the replies, I'm particularly looking for ones that don't try to re-encode your footage, GUI for DVDAuthor (and similar) look promising. I will look into them thanks.
Indeed he did. Can't keep a good man down, though! ;-)mark0326 said:Didn't Lester get shot?
Probably the major reason I've made so much use of GUI_for_dvdauthor, being that when I first started to author DVDs - like many - I was interested in making DVDs look more like commercial products, and being able to include things like preview footage, motion menus, and animated thumbnails.mark0326 said:Thanks, for the amount of use it will get I really can't justify paying out too much but like you say, GUI for DVD Author is looking good, I will try it.
The last program I tried restarted the motion background every time a button was selected on the menu or chapter pages, that made it look awful!
Welcome to the world of extremely limited functionality of DVDs. Tons of capabilities have been added to the two competing HiDef DVD formats.mark0326 said:The last program I tried restarted the motion background every time a button was selected on the menu or chapter pages, that made it look awful!
I second that: I have struggled for days to get GUI for DVD to work but it won't. Several good people have tried to sort me out but frankly it's just not understandable!neumannu47 said:Lester, since you know what you're doing, GFD is probably a great utility. However, I can tell you that I'm still struggling with Nero and TDA. GFD requires a good understanding of DVDs, which you have.
Having said that, I'm trying to find a way to create menus that are only text. NVE and TDA want to put thumbnails on the menus. GFD appears to offer that capability, if I can figure out how to use it. NVE and TDA may do it, too, but the way to do so escapes me. It is as if I don't have all of the templates or something.
Good call - don't often refer to it myself, as I can do what I want with it.TimA-C said:Have you tried looking at the 'How-to' guide here http://www.videohelp.com/~gfd/GUI_DVDauthor_eng_07.htm ?
