A good DVD always begins with the menu. It should be an eyecatcher but it should not bore the viewer to death with long loading times. The most important thing is surely the compatibility to all players in the market.
In the chapter about encoding, I alread mentioned that a high quality MPEG2 encoding and a compatible Dolby Digital stream are the most important things to ensure the compatibility of a DVD. A nice-looking menu, not too bumpy but also not too boring and with many possibilities of design, the DVD is complete.
Or do you only need background graphics and highlight masks to create your own menus? I can offer this service, also.
Not satisfied with old DVD menus? I'll exchange them with better ones. If you are interested in increasing the runtime of the DVD, e.g. to fit more episodes of a series to each DVD, or if you would like to increase the quality, it is also possible to make an optional filtering and reencoding.
As source materials, I accept commercial DVDs as well as hard drives with raw or encoded video files, Betacam SP, Betacam SX, MPEG-IMX, DigiBeta, U-Matic Lowband, Video8/Hi8, MiniDV, VHS, S-VHS, S-VHS ET, D-VHS, Video2000, Betamax, BetaHifi, SuperBeta, TED, Laservision, Laserdisc und Laserfilm.
