Tor is correct--I understand fear of piracy but it would be nice if Sonic came up with a better registration scheme---Having said that, its a toll free call to Wisconsin and Sonic's service is excellent. As far as 4.0 goes, I think its terrific---

In answer to Dans question about ReelDVD. Based on manufacturers spec at Sonic.....
MY personal opinion is the interface to DVD Architect is superior. But that is not to say ReelDVD is bad. ReelDVD supports subtitles and additional audio tracks. DVD Architect ver 1 does not. DVD Architect supports 5.1 AC3 encoding. You have to move up to Sonics' Scenarist to get that, but Scenarist also supports DTS and other advanced audio formats. Scenarist is strictly for pros or rich kids with lots of money.

DVD Architect when bundled with Vegas is a great feature. At the moment I can live without subtitles, and I'm not pretentious enough to put a directors commentary on anything I do. hehehe. I don't know how the actual mpeg2 quality compares between ReelDVD and DVD Architect.

ReelDVD when not bundled with a capture card lists for 999.00 with net prices lower. That's more expensive than the full retail of the Vegas 4 + DVD Architec. So I would expect it to have more features the the initial version of DVDA.
On another thread, Videoguys posted a special with the RT.100 and ReelDVD that sounds pretty good.

The Vegas+DVDA bundle is the least expensive, quality, 5.1 surround option currently available. And after a film professor pointed out you missed at least a third of a movie, I'm not the sub-title snob I once was, though that is the one thing I wished SoFo had included. Just my opinion. Usually everyone elses disagrees.
