Default EXpert advice needed

After all the problems i had with svcd, I've decided to move to DVD. I got a burner and now I need good authoring tools.

1. Which author tool (in your opinion) is the best. I use avi and mov files for most of my stuff.

2. Which encoder should I use to turn wav into AC3?

thanks in advance

Sonic Foundry's SoftEncode - if you can find it...

Ah, my friend, how are you? DO you have a author tool you prefer? I've got IFOedit, Spruce up and Ulead DVD workshop, but I cant tell which is best.

1) DVD2ONE is NOT authoring software

2) If you'd bother to carefully read Frodo Skywalker's initial post:
"I use avi and mov files for most of my stuff." - you wouldn't post such nonsense...

no need to be a little bit cheeky Setarip, no idea what has gone wrong with your attitude since the last year now.

I thought he meant authoring as in burning!

2) obviously considering the person *MAY* have knowledge to convert the source files to MPEG 2 (DVD format), then burning it to DVD! or using the built in encoder (IF IT HAS ONE) to convert it to DVD format

Setarip, there is no need to turn on against me, or anyone else for that matter, just calm down!

Sure, u may have all the posts, and a good amount of stars, but that does not neccesarily mean u have ALL the knowledge in the world, I don't, I don't blab about it, and I am sure neither do u, but the impressions I am getting from your posts seems that you are trying to give that impression.

Posts does NOT neccessarily mean that you have ALL the knowledge, no it does not.

Just plz, CALM DOWN!

If all you are going to do is post erroneous and/or misleading responses to earnest questions - and then rambling, nonsensical diatribes when you're taken to task for doing so - perhaps you just shouldn't post at all.

Additionally, your "tagalong" postings, "congratulating" or agreeing with other posters (particularly moderators) smack openly of "brown-nosing"and ABSOLUTELY WITHOUT VALUE.

Just as a side note - I am VERY calm. You, on the other hand...

In other parts of these forums, you'll find other similar followups to your other erroneous postings and subsequent whining.

Have a nice day ;>}

P.S. From this point forward, I'll ignore any additional pointless retorts - they're just not worth my time or the bandwidth...

Setarip, I am very calm, but certainly u are not and I do not do what u do, do wasteless postings!

"let us know of ur success"

or other things like that (can't quite find the link yet...)

you are nothing but starting to cause trouble here, and it is up to me if I should post or not, not u. I am simply trying to help here, unlike u, u may like to help, but u also like to leave a trail of trouble in some threads, like this one.

Clearly, we know who is in the right here.

u can clearly see who is starting trouble, CERTAINLY not me.

at least I do have some fans and grow nearly everyday and I respect and appreciate that ppl do like my advice.

have a good day and don't start trouble.

play safe!

ARE YOU TWO MARRIED?? GEE Whiz.

To the question:

I use Spruce up a lot because of its good features and ease of use, but I'm not sure if it can convert video files, I dont think it can.

I have been using Cyberlink Power Director for that task. I just got it and it seems pretty good.

Hope this helps,
