Hello to MAGIX

I hope that DVDA will now have a happy future under MAGIX...

Currently the support in DVDA for DVD VMCommands is poor (have a look at DVDLab2's implementation - it's much better) also needed scripting for Blu-rays!

3D (stereoscopic) in Blu-ray disc creation is lacking the ability to add playlists - any 3D material in a playlist will only play back in 2D. No support for pop-up menus either.

I could go on - but feel that MAGIX may already have it's hands full of VEGAS PRO requests ...

In addition to work with the properties and handling of VegasPro software, more thought needs to be given to making DVDArchitect Pro software the valuable companion piece that it should be. There is absolutely no competition worldwide for the market that a combined entity of VegasPro/DVDAPro can satisfy. The emphasis going forward should be creating Blu-ray as well 4k video Blu-ray disc media.

Perhaps the DVDAPro area of software is most underserved by the lack of the exact how-to do tasks within the software - not actual bug cleansing.

Here for Gary Rebholz and Eric Dettman, a list of in-depth discussions about the state of mis-info.misunderstood features of DVDAPro.

Speaking of DVD Architect:

Update to include Blu-ray's Pop-up menu, at least we can do navigation from it, rather than just being limited only to Top Menu / Title Menu like DVDs.

Regarding Set's comment about pop-up menu - there is a little documented and definitely under-utilized feature in DVDAPro 5.2 version where on-screen menus are permitted. This kind of utllity already there, needs to be fully exploited by tutorials...

BUT on the other hand, an actual Pop-up delivery for the on-screen menu would be most desirable. This kind of feature was last implemented by the last version of Adobe Encore, which is sadly no-longer available.

If DVDAPro would bring this to the market once again - it would be the single add-on feature that would make the going retail price of DVDAPro worthwhile. Sometimes just one single feature can provide the momentum in a market devoid of competition to actually surge to the forefront.
