Ulead has announced the December availability of DVD MovieFactory 2.0.

This new version includes Disc-Direct capture, allowing users to write directly to DVDs from video sources without writing to the computer’s hard drive.

The software also provides on-disc editing tools for use with DVD+RW drives, allowing the re-use of video already recorded on the disc.

DVD MovieFactory 2.0 will be available for download starting December 10 for $44.95. Registered users can download the upgrade for $34.95. The retail product is scheduled to be on shelves in January 2003.
