For the longest time I have used a program called DVD Lab http://www.mediachance.com/ It was absolutely fantastic for authoring DVD's. So now I am starting to venture in creating HD-DVD and BluRay DVD's with my HD Material. For now, I am just going to go to DVD Media for short videos and things like that. But it appears that DVD Lab , and DVD Lab Pro are really no longer being updated and they don't appear to support HD-DVD and BluRay formats. Does anyone know of a quality program that can be used for authoring HD-DVD's and BluRays ? Typically I do all my editing and video effect items in one program. Save the output to standard video files. Then use another to encode it to proper format Then use DVD Lab to create my menu's, chapters, and overall DVD layout. Then make a DVD directory on the hard drive, then use Nero to go from hard drive to disk. It is a tedious process, but I have never found a single program that can beat the flexibility and consistancy of this method.
