DVD Architect 3 software
Nothing beats DVD Architect software for professional DVD authoring. Its clean, drag-and-drop interface and powerful layout and authoring tools make it easy to develop dynamic menu-based DVDs, movies, picture slideshows, and music compilations. DVD Architect software works seamlessly with the Vegas environment.
Dolby Digital AC-3 encoding software
Officially tested and certified by Dolby Laboratories Inc., this encoding software optimally prepares AC-3 output for professional surround sound DVD productions. Encode 5.1 multichannel or stereo mixes to AC-3 format inside Vegas software.
Powerful DVD Creation
Professional DVD design and authoring
Author professional menu-based DVDs using backgrounds, motion menus, buttons, text and effects. Use programmable end actions to set DVD content to loop, hold, or timeout at the end of a scene change. Create DVDs with subtitles, multiple languages and running commentary.
Powerful DVD layout tools
The project overview window in DVD Architect 3 software provides a hierarchical view of all the menus and titles in a DVD project. View end actions, quickly delete, add or rename a menu or title, or set the DVD introduction media. DVD Architect 3 software has a fully customizable interface to optimize workflow.
Adobe Photoshop layer support
For the ultimate in control over the appearance of your project, you can import an Adobe Photoshop (PSD) file to create menus, buttons, and more.
Multiple audio track support
Produce DVDs containing multiple languages, alternate music beds and Director's commentary. DVD Architect 3 allows up to 8 different audio tracks for each title. Also add multiple audio tracks to videos and picture slideshows.
Subtitle creation and support
Create and edit frame-accurate subtitles within the DVD Architect 3 interface by exporting text regions using Vegas software, and importing them into the DVD Architect interface. Subtitles display on-screen during movies, slideshows, and music compilations. Text files can be translated for use as alternate language subtitles in a project to create DVDs containing multiple languages. Subtitles can also be imported from a text file or third-party subtitling application. DVD Architect 3 supports up to 32 subtitle tracks for each title (16 tracks for widescreen).
5.1-channel AC-3 encoding
Output surround mixes by encoding 5.1 multichannel or stereo projects with the Sony Pictures Dolby Digital AC-3 encoder. DVD Architect software also imports AC-3 files for the creation of multichannel 5.1 DVDs.
Customizable user interface
Customize the DVD Architect environment to fit your workflow. Dock multiple windows and float them anywhere on your workspace--especially useful when working on a system with dual monitors.
Smart project reprepare
Now it is faster and easier to edit a previously prepared project. Using new technology, DVD Architect 3 software can now recognize and prepare only the changed portions of the project--saving you valuable time.
You can use playlists to play a sequence of movies, chapter markers, music compilations, or picture compilations. A playlist works much like a slideshow--the list of entries is played start to finish and an end-action defines the go-to point after the playlist is finished.
Programmable end actions for menus and media
Create customizable end actions for menus and buttons in your DVD project. Set DVD content to loop, hold, or timeout at the end of a button or scene change. Set multiple end actions for a single menu item without rendering the file.
Project overview window
The project overview window in DVD Architect 3 software provides a hierarchical tree view of all the menus and titles in your DVD project, providing an instant overview of your entire DVD. Quick navigation allows you to add, move, delete, or rename a menu or title, set the DVD introduction media with ease, and view end actions.
Jacket picture creation
A DVD player can display a "Jacket picture" (an image contained on the DVD disc) when the DVD player is in "stop" mode.
Apply image-correction filters to media files to fine-tune still images and video. Filters include Brightness and Contrast, Levels, Auto Levels, Crop, and Anti-Flicker.
Dual-layer authoring and burning support
The DVD+R DL format allows users of drives such as the Sony DRU-700A to burn DVD discs containing up to 8.5 GB of data. Most DVD players will be able to play DVD+R DL DVD discs.
DVD mastering tools
DVD Architect 3 software adds support for export of DLT, DDP, and CMF--the common packaging formats required by professional duplicators.
Asset behavior control
DVD Architect 3 software lets you specify behaviors for links, highlight masks, destination buttons, custom color sets, remote behaviors, and much more.
Flash .SWF format import
Import Flash (.swf) formats into a DVD Architect 3 project and combine with other events to create spectacular DVD motion backgrounds and effects.
Support for setting CSS (Content Scramble System) and Macrovision (Type I, II, and III) copy-protection flags when creating masters.
Multiangle video selection
You can add multiple video tracks to videos to add support for multiple viewing angles. During playback, press the Angle button on the remote control to change angles. You can add up to 8 video tracks for each title.
Real-time external monitor preview via i.LINK connector/IEEE-1394
Ensure your DVD project looks the way you intended. Preview your DVD project in real-time while simultaneously viewing on an external monitor via i.LINK connector/IEEE-1394 devices. View safe areas and fine-tune subtitles and object positioning in real-time. Simulate different aspect ratios including letterbox and anamorphic widescreen.
DVD disc optimization
Optimize projects to make the best use of disc space. DVD Architect software analyzes source material, and provides fit-to-disc adjustable compression in your project on a file-by-file basis.
Picture slideshows and music compilations
Drag, drop, and arrange stills in the DVD Architect interface. Create personalized music compilations that display text and images, or add background music to stills to enhance presentations.
Elementary stream import
Import MPEG elementary stream MPEG-2 files. No additional conversion is necessary.
24p DVD encoding
Prepare and create 24p DVD projects. DVD Architect provides support for 24p MPEG files and preparation of 24p DVDs.
Fit to disc compression
Automatically adjust the project video bit rate to fit your DVD project onto 4.7 GB DVD media. Only video and audio that requires additional recompression will be adjusted. If a project cannot fit on a disc, DVD Architect software lets you modify settings on a file-by-file basis to ensure proper size.
Enhanced optimization tools
DVD Architect 3 software includes recompress settings, allowing per-asset control of bitrate estimation, aspect ratio, resolution, frame-rate, confirmation of no-recompress, and more.
Extensive DVD burner support
