- Features are the same for version 1.5 and 1.6, except concerning DVD +R Double Layer writing.
With TMPGEnc DVD Author you can change (author) your MPEG-1 / MPEG-2 files to DVD-Video structured files. Using high quality MPEG files made by the "TMPGEnc Plus 2.5 series" or captured by an MPEG capture device, it is possible to perform your own DVD authoring quick and easy.
The outputted file structure (.ifo, VOB) can be burned to a DVD disc using the DVD Writing Tool included from version 1.5 or using your own DVD writing software. This way you can create your own original DVDs. Furthermore, Version 1.6 even allows writing on DVD+R DL (Double Layer) if you have the appropriate DVD writer and media. Since DVD Author also supports DVD-Video files (VIDEO-TS.ifo) as input files, you can also cut out scenes from your favorite DVD and make a new DVD-Video. You are also able to create interesting menus using the "motion menu" feature also included in the product. We recommend you try this easy-to-use authoring software.

1. A user-friendly interface with an easy to use five-step procedure.
We have designed the work procedure in five easy steps so even beginners can start making their own DVD-Video at once.
2. Supports advanced settings of TMPGEnc Plus 2.5.or TMPGEnc 3.0 XPress
TMPGEnc DVD Author supports MPEG-2 files encoded with advanced settings, such as a 3:2 pull down and a reverse 3:2 pull down, which other conventional authoring software do not offer. By using files produced with TMPGEnc you can obtain high quality DVD-Video.
3. Fast preview and work response when working with Cut edit or inserting Chapter points.
The editing function and inserting Chapter points is carried out using thumbnail display in the GOP structure, and can therefore be done while watching the original source in a preview window.
4. Quickly convert MPEG files to ifo, VOB files without re-encoding.
Since DVD Author does not re-encode the video file, you can quickly convert MPEG files to a DVD file folder structure without degrading the quality.
5. Convert to 2 Channel DVD Audio, where the left and right channel has been split up.
Supports MPEG-2 source files captured from bilingual TV broadcasts. By splitting up the audio into the right and left channel, it is possible to create bilingual DVD-Video.
6. Supports DVD-VR (VRO format) files recorded on a DVD-RAM recorder as input files.
You can use VRO files recorded on a DVD-RAM recorder as source files. Editing can be done easily and a DVD-VIDEO file can be created.
7. Re-edit your DVD-Video files (VIDEO-TS.ifo).
You can re-edit the DVD-Video you have already created. Because the chapter point information is also acquired it is not necessary to insert them again. Without losing quality you can redo your DVD-Video.
8. Can easily create high quality menus
Thanks to the Motion menu function that uses movie clips as a source, it is possible to create a menu with motion using a video clip as a source like in a commercial DVD. Motion menus can be used for the menu background and also for the menu pictures.
9. [Edit menu theme] function
We have received plenty of suggestions about adding a "menu theme editor".
Available from version(1.513.44), you can create interesting menus.
10. Supports TMPGEnc Sound Plug-in AC-3
If you have the TMPGEnc Sound Plug-in AC-3, you can encode in DolbyÂ® Digital (AC-3) 2ch audio! This standard format is now widely used in commercial DVD's. It gives you good quality sound and uses less space on the DVD. Since this plug-in allows Dolby Digital audio decoding, you will be able to hear the sound while editing or to encode Dolby Digital audio to another format and vice versa.
11. High Compatility for DVD Writing and Playback (PxEngine)
The DVD writing tool, based on the well known "PxEngine" allows creation of reliable original DVD.
