New Adobe DVD Software

http://apnews.excite.com/article/20030331/D7Q3T8P80.html

Adobe are bringing a product out called 'encore' so you can create DVDs. Ive been thinking of buying a dvd recorder for a while now so this might be the incentive I need.

cheers mate, looks interesting. I'll have to get practicing for when I can afford a DVD writer - that's a lot of practice!

dvd authoring is very simple. make all the pages in photoshop at the correct resolution and export as uncompressed tifs. leave a border around the edge for TV screensafe purposes and use screensafe colours (ie. try not to use white as it flickers).

the problem with dvd projects are they are much harder and costlier to update than a website. in fact, its a pain in the arse!

you could download a trail version of reel3 by Sonic which is a budget to medium range product:

i went to the adobe show at imax a couple of days ago and did a demonstration of Encore on the imax screen. it was a very impressive bit of kit. it uses the photoshop engine so you have have both programs running simultaneously and just drop psds into encore, rather than doing everything as tiffs as u would with maestro, etc.

also has benefits such as photoshop 7's text tool, etc. beats any other dvd authoring software i've seen so far. price isn't too unreasonable either.

tiffs and psds are all fine and good but I want my dvds to have video like the real dvds do ;P

how does it look for integrating video/after effects/premier?

I've never authered a DVD, is it possible to use director (or anything similar) to create the front end? or do you have to use very simple DVD packages ?

almost all dvd's are created in photoshop. you can make stuff in flash, director, etc but then you bring it into the program as an avi file (or similar).

remember, with dvd you don't (yet) get the interactivity of traditional cd-roms or web.

encore will retail for around 500 quid - far cheaper than 20k, which is what maestro used to cost

still, means my trusty old director package could be some use. Need to see these things in opperation before I stump up the cash for one though - time to find a software show... where's the next decent one, or anyone know of a good place for a decent demo?
