Whilst DVDA/DVDAS are popular and moderately easy to use, I've found another package (Free?) which also includes small amounts of animation to the Buttons . . . some YouTue Tutorials are of variable quality.
The software is: QDVDAuthor and started out as Linux, but is now available in Win or Mac versions. It appears to allow AVCHD burning for HD movies onto a DVD, but I wonder if anyone here has used this and can vouch for it?
I found Wondershare DVD Creator, which similarly offers both Win and Mac versions . . . but it's not quite clear to me if this is the same program with a different wrapper.....anyone?
I'm quite happy with DVDAS for plain DVDs since I only need a Menu displaying the (very short) films on the disc. Backgrounds, music and/or other visuals are not necessary IMHO.
However the bonus these progs appear to offer is both Menus and AVCHD, if I can add a smalll animation when the button is pressed so much the better . . . . . but I'm still of the view that the Film needs to be better than the Titles, so the animation will be restricted.
