Chapter 16. Technical Testing: Hardware and software techniques for quality control testing

Testing your project is critically important because a lot of things can go wrong when you develop something as complex as a DVD project. And the very last thing you want to happen is to find an error on a finished disc, especially one that has been reproduced in large quantities. At several stages throughout the development process you should burn the project onto a DVD disc and test for possible problems. This testing process is sometimes referred to as QC (Quality Check or Quality Control) and sometimes as QA (Quality Assurance).

If you've collected assets for your project from outside sources, don't assume that those assets have been prepared correctly. Take the time to preview all movies and audio files that will be included in your project, making sure the quality is acceptable and that everything plays as expected. If you've received video segments or graphics from another designer, check the file formats, sizes, and spelling accuracy of menu items.
