Creating a DVD or Blu-ray, a data CD, or an audio disc can be complicated enough to have to deal with the technicalities of some disc creation tools. Wondershare DVD Creator offers a simple yet efficient disc creation, authoring, and burning tool that anyone can use. As a bonus, the program includes tools to burn ISO files to disc, edit video, extract the tracks of an audio CD, and create a slideshow, among others.
If only navigating through the program’s interface was less confusing at times, this would be an incredible simple disc creation tool suitable for anyone. The problem is that every time you close the window of the option you were using, instead of going back to the main initial menu, the main program also closes down. In addition, the names of the options are not as descriptive and straightforward as one would expect, making it harder than necessary to find the toolbox, or to go and rip one of your audio CDs.
Other than that, the program works like a charm. Apart from the well-known fact that it can burn to any kind of disc – including DVD5 and DVD9, Blu-ray discs, and all types of re-writable discs – it comes with some utilities that are worth mentioning. Wondershare DVD Creator allows you to edit your videos before authoring and burning your DVD – this will allow removing unwanted parts from your video files, cropping them to your favorite size, adding watermarks and subtitles to them, etc. Another interesting and useful utility is the menu-authoring tool – it offers a good range of templates for you to use as is and the option to customize them to fit your preferences.
Finally, the program also includes ripping tools to extract audio tracks from an audio CD or to convert your DVD or BD video streams into more portable formats. Besides, if you want to clone one of your discs, or to save your favorite movies as DVD or BD folders on your hard drive, burn any disc from an ISO image file, create a slideshow with your favorite photos and background music, or to convert your audio tracks into other more suitable formats, you can also rely on this highly comprehensive tool to perform those tasks for you.
