DVD authoring software for PC's

Hi folks,
I usually hang out in the Vegas area, as I've been using Vegas for a long time, and really love how it works.

But I have to say, I am not happy with the companion product - DVD architect. It's very confusing to try and create interesting buttons, and menus. What are you folks using for your DVD stuff? I frequently send out DVD's with multiple shows that I want people to navigate directly to. One time I saw a demo of Adobe after-effects, and it seemed like they were doing some pretty great things.

Does anybody have any other suggestions I might try?
Thanks,
Milt Lee

That would be Adobe Encore DVD and not After Effects.

I use it and love it. You can author your DVD with it, to look and work just like any commercial DVD. Download the free trial and see for yourself.

I have been very happy with DVD-lab Pro from mediachance.com.
http://www.mediachance.com/dvdlab/dvdlabpro.html

It is very versatile and is constantly being enhanced. I found it to be very intuitive. You can take it on a test drive for free.

Regards,

I use the DVD program inside of Pinnacle 10 plus, and have used Pinnacles menu systems for years.
