WinX DVD Author is a very complete DVD authoring tool. It allows you to create a DVD movie from a video file or a previously ripped DVD disc. It has a built-in burning engine that allows you to burn the discs after conversion is complete. You can create menus and add different audio and subtitle tracks.
WinX DVD Author has a set of features (burner and converter), and they can be accessed individually or you can use the step-by-step wizard to create your DVD movie. The wizard is by far the easiest and less time-consuming approach. You simply add the video file that you want to put on your DVD and click on "next". The next step is to design the menus that the DVD movie will use. There are quite a few templates, so you can just skip this step if you want and use any of the backgrounds available. Or you can use your own images as backgrounds and add your own music to the menu as well. You can change the fonts and the placement of items on the screen. Then you can start the process and burn the DVD.
I like the fact that you can create several subtitle tracks from .SRT files and you can change the text properties as well. The custom menus are also a nice feature.
- Lots of authoring options (aspect ratio, audio track, subtitle, track, menus).
- Easy to use.
- Built-in preview
