Sothink DVD Movie Maker is a suite of tools for converting video files into a DVD format that’s suitable for use on standalone DVD players.
Sothink DVD Movie Maker is a platform for converting video files you can play on your PC into a DVD format that a conventional DVD player can handle. You can convert a single video file to DVD, or you can add a large number of video clips and organize them to your liking. The program makes the entire process simple, which makes it suitable for beginners, but if you’re an advanced user who wants more control, Sothink DVD Movie Maker provides those configuration options as well.
Sothink DVD Movie Maker supports a wide range of video and audio codecs and formats, including AVI, CDA, MKV, MP3, WMV, and OGG. Adding files to your new DVD is a simple as dragging and dropping them onto the user interface, but you can also go through the file explorer. The program also includes some basic editing tool, and you can trim each added video down to an appropriate clip. Unfortunately, if you want advanced editing, such as creating multiple splices, you’ll need another program.
Once your source files are added, edited, and organized, you can configure the DVD that will be outputted. You can choose the PAL or NTSC encoding, and you can choose the DVD size based on the DVD-R discs you have available. That allows the program to make compression adjustments in order to ensure that everything fits. You can also create a menu that viewers can use to navigate your DVD, and there are even templates provided, such as a holiday themed one.
Sothink DVD Movie Maker has a built-in resizable preview window that you can use to preview your DVD before burning it to disc. There’s also built-in burning software, so when you’re satisfied, you can skip outputting to VOB and burn the creation directly to disc. All in all, this is a wonderful package that makes it very easy to create homemade DVDs.
The selection of editing tools may be too basic for some users, and performance can degrade during long creation suggestions. That suggests a resource leak of some kind, but a quick restart of the program will generally fix the issue. Also, there’s no built-in help, and while the program is very intuitive, an easily accessed resource that explains features and concepts would be nice.
