The installation of dvdSanta is easy and intuitive. Not only can
you place the program files where you want them it also gives you the option of
installing a Desktop icon and a Quick Launch icon.
First off lets get one thing straight this is not some startup buggy software
that is going to confuse you or crash every time you turn around.
dvdSanta bills it self rightly as "The easiest way to create your own DVD!"
The first screen you get when opening dvdSanta is where you pick out your task.
The choices are Video Files to DVD, Photo Slide Show to DVD, Digital Camcorder
to DVD, and Disk Image or DVD video folder to DVD.
I first tried out the Video Files to DVD and I was impressed not only with the
ease of use but also the advanced options available.
Then I tried the Photo Slide Show to DVD. Once again easy to use but it has the
advanced features. (Some of them are: The ability to do Panning and Zooming all
kinds of different transition effects, plus of time that photos show, transition
time. Plus you can even record a narration!
I was unable to try out the Digital Camcorder to DVD since I don't have a
The Disc Image or DVD video folder to DVD was also simplicity itself.
BTW I almost forgot to mention the multi-language abilty of dvdSanta. Fourteen
The only limitation on the trial version is it will show "Demo Version" text on
the output video.
In conclusion the people at ZY Computing have got a real winner on their hands
with dvdSanta. The simplicity of use, plus with the advanced feature available
make this an outstanding piece of software.
You gotta have it!
