It's time for me to either upgrade Encore (from 1.5 to 2.0) or look at switching to a different DVD authoring programme. And I need advice!
Encore just isn't doing it for me at the moment - too many issues with ugly menu higlights and lots of limitations with menus etc.
As the computer I'm currently working on is also in desperate need of an upgrade I want to keep an open mind as to where to next...
I mainly work on simple DVDs (no animated menus) with lots of chapters and menus. Currently I design menus in Photoshop and export mpegs from either Premiere Pro or compress them through Squeeze. This all happens on a PC although I like the idea of getting a new Mac... whatever's best value for money I suppose!
Any tips or advice or comparisons would be appreciated.
Do you work on many commercial DVD's? If not, I would suggest DVDlab Pro. Its very powerful, more than Encore and others in the same category, only for 250$. You have access to all specifications and it contains great features to make authoring easier.
