    Recommend DVD authoring app?

    I'm looking for a DVD authoring program, in particular one that can develop a scrolling text menu. All that I have found use graphic menus, perhaps 4 choices at a time, with the serial option of moving to another 4 graphics. Some provide a static content sample; others are clever, each graphic running content, but there may not be enough information to distinguish one from another. And there's no quick way of knowing what's ahead.
    A scrolling text menu has these advantages:
    More videos, perhaps all, can be shown.
    Subject matter can be clearly stated.


    And a further question in case there's no program with text menus. Which of the others do you like?

    I have no solution but based upon experience I see a need to have some way to stop any scrolling so one could click on an item or make a choice of an item to allow pressing a number key to get it.

    Thanks Berton,
    Just a few hours ago I began to think that, not my words, but my word was misleading. I should have said scrollable' In most cases, just a static step-thru list would do.
    I've just discovered Cyberlink PowerDirector, but I'm still at the bottom of a steep learning curve.
    Other, programs that I've tried, have flakey, uncontrollable menus. PD, as it's called, looks like quality.
    I looked for the THANKS button.

    You're welcome. Sometimes it's all in the wording.
