DVDAuthorGUI is a convenient tool that provides you with an easy to use user interface for the DVDAuthor program. It allows you to create movie DVDs without having to deal with the command line interface of the original application.
Since Windows became the most popular operating system, most of the computer users got used to the graphical interface and find it easier to operate. This is particularly true when you need to handle multiple files and parameters as is the case when creating video DVDs.
All the parameters of the DVD are stored in a project file that can be loaded later if you want to make modifications. It includes the list of video files, the audio tracks, the subtitles and the other essential elements required to author the disc.
The main advantage of the GUI is the ability to access the resources, to organize them into chapters and to create the menus required to access all the titles from the media player. The functions are clearly structured and easily accessible with just a few clicks.
The menus provide access to the advanced features of the DVDAuthor in order to edit the XML file before authoring the DVD. This enables you to fine-tune the output that can also be saved as an ISO file after the authoring is finished.
The GUI requires minimal resources to run and can improve the experience for the users that are not used to the command line interface. While the professionals might still prefer the command line for its flexibility, DVDAuthorGUI is recommended for the casual users for quickly accessing the basic features of the DVD author tool.
