Targeted at people who want to get into DVD production, DVD Authoring & Production covers almost every aspect of the DVD production and authoring process. However, the book is organized in such a way that you can either read it from start to finish or read a chapter at a time to bone up on specific issues (e.g. a brief history of DVD). This is rather thoughtful, considering the book runs close to half a thousand pages.
Essentially a how-to guide for developing DVD titles, the author touches on a lot of technical details and has wisely included a comprehensive glossary of acronyms and DVD terms.
Throughout the book, you will find “Tips, Tricks & Techniques” boxes, which offer some common sense advice on how to author and produce DVD titles. A copy of “StarGaze”, a DVD title developed by the author, is also included to provide real-world examples of the DVD authoring and production process.
