I thought there would be 100 and 1 good solutions for this but so far I have not found something that could all of the following:

  • Create a DVD-player DVD
  • Have a menu with options
  • Have images & Video
  • prefrably handle .mod

Basically I am trying to put a bunch of photos and videos from our wedding & honeymoon on and older-relative friendly DVD. So it must be able to be playable in a normal dvd player so therefore it must be able to show a menu with categories.

Anyone got good recommendations for this? Everything I come across is either a completely generic menu or frankly broken!

  • either windows or linux programs are fine but windows would be eaiser :) Jun 9, 2013 at 14:46

Adobe Encore can do what you are looking for. It is included with Adobe Premiere. You can either buy a copy of CS6 or if you only need it for the one project, you can use Creative Cloud to obtain it for just a month or two.

In general, you will find most DVD authoring software comes in fairly expensive packages. It's not as easy as you would think to do and not a lot of software does it. The options now are cheap in comparison to how much it used to cost. When I first did DVD authoring, it cost $2500 to get DVD authoring software that crashed every 15 minutes or so.


Take a look at Movie Studio Platinum 12 (or DVD Architect Studio w/o video editor)
