Any idea when I'm going to get my second DVD that I sent money for?

The lab I'm working in just bought five or so portable external DVD-Rs (actually, they're external SuperDrives). We haven't given them a test drive yet, but I expect they'll be thoroughly inspected this month in preparation for regular use by the beginning of the fall semester.

The problem, so I hear, is that the Macs only have two DVD authoring software programs - one's iDVD, which is way too basic and has almost no functionality. The other is a $1000+ program that is extremely complex and based on an indenpendent line command structure. If anyone released an intermediate-user program that allowed for the creation of extras like animated menus and multiple audio tracks, that'd be great.

On the other hand, the PCs have some better authoring programs, but I don't know if the lab has the money or wherewithal to buy any good ones. Any recommendations?

For pcs, I used DVDit, and I really liked it. Then my comp crashed and I lost it. So now I'm using spruce up. Basic, but you can use pcm for audio and whatnot, so its good.

I'll probably buy one around mid-September. I'm already encoding videos, though. And I'm usind Sonic Scenarist to author DVDs.

Actually DVD burners are really cheap at this point. They're cheaper than what I paid for my first CD Burner back in late 1998.

Check out www.pricewatch.com (http://www.pricewatch.com) or www.pricegrabber.com (http://www.pricegrabber.com)

A Pioneer DVR-A04 can be bought for $250. Panasonic LF-D311 DVD-RAM/DVD-R combo drives are as little as $210.

I'd have one already only that I don't have much use for one (I could copy PS2 games but there aren't any I want anyway). By the end of the year they'll be under two hundred dollars and blank discs will be cheaper than CD-Rs were at this point in their life cycle.

Now standalone DVD burner units are a different story...

As far as I'm concerned, buying a DVD burner is a waste of money until the DVD-A standards have settled. 24 bit/ 96kHz shows... yummy!

That's nice for you. Here, they are at LEAST $1300. So I'm waiting until the price drops, which I'm assuming will be part-way through next year.

I will have a Mac soon enough...this is #3 on my Mac software list, after Final Cut Pro and Max/MSP. Now all I need is money....arg!

At least v.2 is half as expensive and about 10x more usable than the original (which I believe was the other program I talked about above last year).
