  • Project: Recording a cDVD Video Disc with a Custom Menu

MyDVD is a great example of the new generation of DVD recording software—like Apple's iDVD on the Macintosh side, MyDVD makes it easy for anyone to create a DVD Video disc, complete with basic interactive menus! No longer do you need years of film editing experience, $20,000 of hardware and software, and the eye of a “starving video artist.” MyDVD takes video clips directly from your hard drive and allows you to choose things such as backgrounds and buttons from an easy-to-use menu system; there's even a helpful wizard to guide you through the entire process, if you like.

In this chapter, I'll show you all of the features of MyDVD, and we'll create a DVD with video clips of your family's summer vacation taken from your hard drive.
