i use it - at a basic level - ie i don't do anything advanced with it. just add a background image, add the menu titles and navigation buttons and leave it at that.

what is it you want to know about DLP2?

If you are going to spend that type of bucks look at http://tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com/en/

Worksfor me and much less expensive. You can also get a plug in co-processor that makes it run like a scalded ape.

If you are asking about TMPGE, there are various menu options that I believe will provide you with what you want. You can down line load a trial copy at
http://tmpgenc.pegasys-inc.com/ and give it a try yourself. They also have various other products dealing with creation and editing of vidos.

none of the ones on PC do any of the things you want that dvd workshop does.

problem is its so outdated you cant do widescreen and it doesn't work on windows 7.

put mac osx on your pc hackitosh and then put final cut studio 3 and use dvd studio pro works like dvd workshop but 1000 times better

like the menus and buttons on the power rangers samurai discs we did? you wont find anything on a PC to do that other than dvd workshop but it wouldnt be widescreen and it wont work on windows 7

GR, attached a quick & dirty RTF file. hope it answers your questions. if you have any more Qs, please shoot them my way. ok-kokey?

i have always used DLP2 for my homebrew projects. i find it easy & straightforward to use. i'll admit i only use a minimal set of features, but enough to get the job done. so i have no complaints about it. i cannot say how it will perform against others as i don't use any other authoring packages. hope you will find it as easy to use as well.

have fun.

just so everyone knows, DLP2 works on both XP (x32) and Win7 (x64) for me.

GR - no probs. shoot me any Qs you have and i'll try to help.

konfusion - custom buttons - you can, but there are limits.
mediachance have a lot of help info at their site. link for custom buttons.

i think you can simply create a button "image" - in photoshop, as psd file - then import it into DLP2.
