Given the flakiness that is dvdauthor, I'm playing with the idea of getting a Mac Mini for dvdauthoring.
This is strictly a hobby, so I'm really not looking to spend $500 on software on top of the cost of the compute r (though this would be a good excuse to finally get myself a Mac!)
So what I mainly want to know is: how advanced is the DVD Authoring software bundled with the Mac Mini?
Create Detailed menus, with clips, etc? (dvdauthor can do this)
Apply subtitles to the stream during authoring, from
Work directly with file formats other than raw mpeg2 video and ac3 audio (built in demuxer)? (dvdauthor can't)
I want more than the simple "click and drag" style level of control.
Is it doable, or am I hoping for too much?
Thanks for any help.
