Here are some of the easy to use features of TAW 4:
Import Hi-Def Video (AVCHD/HDV) from a Camcorder
Create and enjoy the high-capacity Blu-ray format, high definition video complete with themed menus without worrying about disc capacity. This allows the saving of high-definition videos taken with an AVCHD or HDV camcorder and keeping it in high definition. Add in high quality 5.1 Dolby Digital surround sound or linear PCM audio (up to 192 kHz/20bit) and the result is an excellent audio/video presentation.
Edit Video Footage
The included cut editing tool gives users the ability to cut-out unwanted scenes or turn one video into several separate videos. The simple controls make editing video a breeze for anyone.
Author DivX® Discs
DivX authoring capability allows DivX projects to feature DVD-like menus and navigation. Finished projects may be replayed with DivX Player software on a PC, or on any DivX Ultra Certified DVD player, a television or compatible home theater system.
Dolby Digital 5.1 Channel Support
For added interest to any video with surround sound, the enhanced software supports input and output of 5.1 Dolby digital audio. Now every nuance, lyric, and bass sound can be saved and enjoyed.
Advanced Slideshow Creator
Photography lovers will appreciate the advanced slideshow creator that allows users to create slideshow DVDs or hi-def slideshows (1920 x 1080) on Blu-ray Disc. Users can animate each slide with transitions and add animation effects to bring still images to life.
171 video transition effects add a professional look to video clips; batch authoring that automatically renders multiple DVD/BDMV projects one after the other, eliminating the need to start each output manually; author Blu-ray discs with full HD pop-up menus; create menu parts such as buttons, frames, and backgrounds from custom images.
TAW4 easily captures video directly from a DV or HDV camcorder. It requires a simple IEEE 1394 (i.LINK) PC interface connection. It can also import many types of source files, including: DVD-VIDEO, DVD-VR, MPEG1/2, MPEG-4 ISO/H.264, AVI, Windows Media, DivX, and QuickTime (mov, mp4, 3gp, 3g2) file formats. Users can utilize up to two subtitle streams simultaneously, making it possible to create a DVD or Blu-ray Disc with subtitles in multiple languages. The included disc writing tool completes the process by burning the project to DVD or Blu-ray Disc media.
