iSkysoft DVD Creator is a handy software tool that allows you to create professional-looking DVD and Blu-ray disc movies from your ordinary video and audio files. You can add a customized menu with sub-menus and a background audio, for which the program includes multiple ready-to-use templates. Besides, this tool can also be used to create stunning slideshows from your image files, also with background audio.
This DVD creator is characterized by a simple and intuitive interface that allows even inexpert users to create a DVD or Blu-ray disc movie in minutes, and even to burn it into a blank disc from the same interface. In its first window, the program allows you to select the type of project to be created (DVD or Blu-ray disc), and then, its main window is launched. It, in turn, guides you through the creation of your movie through four simple steps - Source, Menu, Preview, and Burn.
The source section allows you to add all the video files you want to include in your movie and group them into titles. You can also add sets of image files that the program will automatically transform into slideshows. Besides, you can edit both video files and slideshows to make them suit your needs. As for the videos, you can rotate, flip, or trim them, add watermarks and subtitles to them, and/or adjust their brightness, contrast, saturation, and audio volume levels. With regard to the slideshows, you can change their images order, rotate them, add texts to them, and select transition effects and background music for the presentation. By the way, this section supports video, image, and audio source files in a myriad of formats including AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV, 3GP, MKV, VOB, MP4, FLV, TOD, RM, DAT, DV, JPEG, BMP, GIF, TIFF, and PNG, as well as MP3, AC3, M4A, WMA, AAC, MKA, AIF, WAV, APE, FLAC, OGG, and others.
The Menu section, on the other hand, automatically creates your menu structure from the titles and source files you added in the previous section. Here you can select among four base templates that you can then customize by adding texts and changing the background image or music; however, you can also download many additional templates from the iSkysoft website for free. Anyway, you are not required to create a menu, leave your movie without one. Next is Preview section, and it basically is a media player that allows you to see how your movie will look and behave. And finally, Burn section allows you to select a disc burner and configure some additional parameters to get your movie directly burned into a blank disc, though you can alternatively save it as an ISO file.
To cut a long story short, iSkysoft DVD Creator is a powerful tool that allows you to author your customized DVD movies in an easy and fast way, even if you are a standard user who does not have much knowledge on this subject. With just a little practice, you will be able to create stunning movies and presentations, and certainly, impress your friends.
