About Sonic MyDVD Studio Deluxe
Sonic MyDVD Studio Deluxe is the easiest, most complete CD and DVD creation software. In addition to integrated video editing with automatic scene detection, it includes the ability to add chapter points, motion-video menus and animated buttons to create the look of a real Hollywood DVD movie. Users can also create high-quality photo slideshows on either CD or DVD, complete with transitions and soundtracks.
MyDVD Studio Deluxe lets users create personalized music CDs with unlimited MP3 encoding, burn exact copies of CDs or DVDs, and provides the choice of manual or automatic backup of individual files, folders or whole volumes to CD or DVD. MyDVD Studio Deluxe also includes Sonic CinePlayer, which allows users to play Hollywood DVDs right on their PC.
Because Sonic MyDVD Studio Deluxe is OpenDVD-compliant, previously burned discs can be opened, re-edited and updated with new video and photo content, and re-burned to DVD and CD recordable/re-writable media. This enables the creation of an entirely new generation of DVD and CD applications, such as video diaries, up-to-the-minute, customized sales presentations, compilations of family events, and more.
