Whenever you require an easy-to-use tool to transform your amateur camcorder videos into pro-looking DVDs, Aimersoft DVD Creator is a neat option to consider. Its wizard-like interface makes it suitable for all users, and its support for all popular video file formats allows you to produce attractive video DVDs from nearly any set of files that you may have in your video collection.
The program’s interface shows four main tabs, and those are all the steps you need to take to produce and burn DVD5 and DVD9 discs complete with menus and subtitles. The “Source” section is where you add all your video clips to the DVD project. Aimersoft DVD Creator can process any MP4, AVI, MPEG, MOV, FLV, DAT, or Real Media video file (among various other Standard Definition formats), as well as any HD AVI, HD MPG, M2TS, TS, or MKV High Definition videos, to name but the most popular ones. JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, GIF, and ICO image files can also be added to the list – the program will transform them into animated slideshows customizable in terms of transition effects and view duration. By clicking on any of the items on the list, you will open the program’s media editor. Here, videos can be trimmed, cropped, watermarked, and subtitled (by importing an SRT file), and their brightness, contrast, and saturation values set to fit your preferences or to correct common exposure mistakes. Photos and other images can be rotated and watermarked, and you can also add your favorite soundtrack to the future slideshow and select any of the transition effects provided.
Once all your videos and photos are in the right order and edited to fit your needs, you can move to the “Menu” tab. Here you will find but four templates to choose from, but don’t panic – you can download many more free family, holiday, nature, or life memory templates and add them to the list easily. This simple menu-authoring tool comes with a menu tree structure that will help you to move around the various levels and to have a real-time overview of the overall disc navigation. You can then preview your project to check that everything is in its right place and that all works as planned. If all works as it should, you can click on the “Burn” tab and save your DVD video to disc, save it as an ISO image, or both.
As seen, the entire creation and authoring process couldn’t be easier. The resulting DVDs will enhance your home video collection, and will allow you to make copies of your best shots for your friends and family in no time.
