With DVD Studio Pro, you'll be able to create full-featured DVDs with high-quality audio and video and professional navigation without focusing on learning DVD-authoring commands. The projects you author are fully compatible with set-top and computer-based DVD players.
Your DVD projects can include motion or still menus, up to 99 video tracks--each with chapter markers, multiple stories, up to nine different angles, eight audio streams, and up to 32 subtitle streams--slide shows, and multiple language tracks. DVD Studio Pro supports making DVD-9 projects, so you can create DVD-Video projects up to 9 GB in size. Create menus with Adobe Photoshop. DVD Studio Pro reads native Adobe Photoshop files directly to create menus and overlays. Or you can design motion menus using clips imported from a video editor such as Final Cut Pro.
DVD Studio Pro features compatibility with your desktop video editing application. You can easily encode your video files in the format required for DVD using the included high-speed MPEG encoder. DVD Studio Pro also handles all kinds of audio, from mono to 5.1 surround sound, and includes a utility to translate your audio into Dolby Digital AC-3 format. You can also add Web links to your DVD, so with just a click, viewers using a desktop computer can reach detailed information, product updates, or even your Web store. Videotape doesn't provide that kind of interactivity.
DVD Studio Pro's easy-to-use Apple interface displays all aspects of your project at a glance. You can work productively right away. A handy inspector shows all relevant settings. You can even customize the onscreen layout to match your work style. DVD Studio Pro features real-time previews so you can see your progress as you work--no need to create a disc image or wait for multiplexing.
