“Our parent company, Pegasys Inc., is a global video software producer and has found that language can be a barrier to users understanding and enjoying the full capacity of a software program,” stated Kimi Matsuki, TMPG Inc. CEO. “This is why we are proactive about making our software programs available in a variety of languages.”
“We are especially excited about translating DVD Author 3 into French and Spanish. This robust program includes HDV capture, DivX authoring, multiple subtitle streams, and the ability to import popular video formats for authoring to DVD or DivX. DVD Author 3 will also cut-edit, create custom menus, and burn projects to a CD (DivX only) or DVD,” Matsuki added.
DVD Author3 Features
With DivX authoring capability, DivX projects can now feature DVD-like menus and navigation. DivX projects made with TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring enjoy the ultimate combination of DVD-like presentation with DivX technology. Finished products may be played with DivX Player software on a PC, or on any DivX Certified DVD player and a television or compatible home theater system.
Capturing video directly from a DV or HDV camcorder is a simple process with the DVD Author 3 software. The camcorder simply plugs into a PC via an IEEE 1394 (i.Link) interface. The software then views the contents, adding it as a source file. TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 improves format input, allowing inclusion of other types of source files. These include: DVD-VIDEO, DVD-VR, MPEG1/2, AVI, Windows Media, DivX, and QuickTime (mov, mp4, 3gp, 3g2) file formats. Since the software can utilize up to two subtitle streams simultaneously, it’s possible to create a DivX or DVD file with subtitles appearing in more than one language.
When using TMPGEnc DVD Author 3, users can utilize either the built-in menu templates or with the robust menu creation process, users can create quick and easy custom menus. Users can also freely position and resize titles, thumbnail images, and text creating dynamic motion menus that give life to any production, as well as change highlight colors and screen ratios. Special Smart Rendering technology makes encoding with TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring faster, allowing users to edit and output DivX and DVD projects much quicker than other authoring software.
