DVD-lab PRO v2.5.1 (update)

This program has a serious bug (and has had it for several releases) that prevents you from using 99 VTS's as advertised. In fact, any more than 8 small VTS's will generate a "out of memory" error every time. Mediachance knows about this problem (the older posts on their website show they have known about this for more than two years). They have given an explanation of the problem, but it has been shown to be untrue. In addition to this, they will not give an estimate of when the bug might be fixed, and have released a few updates without fixing this bug, choosing to fix far less serious bugs instead. They also provide several trouble-shooting tips, but these do not help. <br/> <br/>Also, the program does not support SUP or IDX subtitles, and often mis-syncs SON subtitles that work fine with other programs. <br/> <br/>In shory, Gui for DVDauthor is a far more capable program...without the steep price.

DVD-lab PRO v2.27 (update)

I really like DVD Lab. I haven't used it for about a year and then I didn't explore all it could do but I was REALLY happy with what I did do and have considered buying it in the future along with Womble MPEG editor. Maybe there is better stuff out there but back when I was making tv shows into DVD's these two pieces of S/W were my favs.

DVD-lab PRO v2.18 (Update)

it's ok

DVD-lab PRO v2.1

Excellent piece of software for the Beginner. It gives a great deal of freedom and is incredibly easy to use. It allows you to make very nice Menus fast and easy. I don't recommend this for commercial (Hollywood) applications as it does not give you complete control over a DVD, but it is great for authoring independent projects and professional looking Home movies and such.
