    Re: Is Avid DVD up to the standards of MC?

    I stand corrected.  MediaChance replied to my inquiry this morning, and confrmed that DVD Lab Pro 2 does not support BD.  Meanwhile, it still does a better job for us than Avid DVD for standard DVD's.

    Re: Is Avid DVD up to the standards of MC?

    Thanks for posting that information Randall.
    I was beginning to think that I needed new glasses.

    If anyone is likely to be staying with DVD as their delivery media, then I agree that DVDLabPro is a good alternative.

    However any application that could replace AvidDVD would have to support Blu-Ray as well.

    AvidDVD's strength here lies in the fact that you can produce either a DVD or a Blu-Ray disc from the same authoring. You make your choice when everything is ready.

    Re: Is Avid DVD up to the standards of MC?

    For very simple DVDs (without fancy menus etc.) i really love(!) womble's MPEG Video Wizard DVD 5.0 (www.womble.com)

    There is a free demo version to test it. The mpeg-editing-capability is fantastic!

    When it comes to any programme that can be used to encode/transcode video/audio files, I personally would never install them, even a trial version, on any computer that I was using DVDitProHD/Avid DVD on.
    Especially if I was having problems with DVDitProHD/AvidDVD already.

    If I was certain that I didn't intend using DVDitProHD/AvidDVD anymore, then I would uninstall it and test other authoring applications in order to find one that suited me.

    I have tested Encore CS4 and TAW4. But neither of them are on the same system that I have my working DVDitProHD/AvidDVD's on.

    Now, this is just my own feelings on the topic. I know there are many who are happily doing just the opposite and not having any problems.
    It's just that I don't feel I should tempt fate. Geeked

    Re: Is Avid DVD up to the standards of MC?

    Agreed, Douglas. The ability to choose DVD or BD output after authoring is DVDit's strongest attribute, and AW4 greatest weakness.

    Hello douglas,

    you can use a virtual pc to test demo-versions. Use a tool like oracles free virtualbox. (http://www.virtualbox.org/)

    Udo, I am not an adventurous person when it comes to testing free downloads etc.
    I know there are a great number of knowledgeable people who enjoy and know there way around these aspects of the computer world.

    Call me an old fogey or a stick in the mud, but I prefer to stay within my limits.......... mind you I can sometimes extend my limits a little.
    But never a huge step into the unknown.
    I think I am very much like Mike Shaw.............  Big Smile . .  in that respect.

    Thanks for posting the information.
    I am sure that there are some people who will be happy to take a look at Virtualbox.

    Regards,
    Douglas

    Re: Is Avid DVD up to the standards of MC?

    I am a bit surprised regarding the relatively small number of comments presented. It could be taken that DVD (BD) output is not a primary concern of many MC users.

    Interesting in that regard, and it would explain why Avid DVD has not seen the development attention than MC has benefited from in the same time period.

    John,

    If you look at what MC has been used for over the years - Major films, TV productions etc., then it's no wonder that these users aren't interested in putting anything out to DVD. They only do one thing for a living - Edit. Their art is in putting a masterpiece together for people to view and enjoy - if it's in a cinema or on a home TV doesn't matter.

    How it gets to where it ends up is someone elses problem.

    Since the "Liquid invasion" however things are starting to change. We could do just about everything in Liquid without opening another App. - except burn Blu-Ray.

    MC now has a new customer base, and maybe Avid will take a serious look at DVDit to cover it when more and more of the new users really get up to steam on MC and then start complaining about the failings in DVDit.
