    With such a plethora of tools out there for `authoring' I wondered if
    experienced people could provide some input as to where to look for
    authoring tools that can take me from entry level to light business
    use.

    I have Nero 6.2, Ulead movie maker, and plan to install the trial
    version of Adobies Encore tomorrow.

    So far with only one authoring job under my belt, it seemed like Neros
    authoring tools were the more professional.

    What do experienced people use...

  2. Your title says "entry level" but then you talk "more professional"

    I don't know if you can have both... but read here, may help

    The best entry-level/professional is DVD-Lab by Media Chance hands down.

  4. Try DVD Lab (30 day fully-functional trial, $99 to buy) - it's not as
    easy to use as Nero, but it seems to be very flexible and professional
    and probably runs circles around anything in it's price range
    (although this is based on other people's opinions, I barely scratched
    the surface on it, before my trial ran out, and I've never used
    anything else other than a crappy all-in-one bundled Roxio app that
    really sucked..)





    by the way...

    I like Sonic DVDit 5. Haven't tried any of the other ones so I can't
    make comparisons. This is a little beyond entry level, at least from a
    price standpoint.

    I had very bad experience with Roxio - it was easy to use, the menu
    functionality was good - but the quality of the encoded video was very poor.

    I am now using TMPGE Express to encode and TMPGE Author to make DVDs. I
    am very pleased with the quality (takes forever to process, however). The
    functionality of the Author program is not as rich as Roxio's - but it is
    very easy to use.
