SmallDVD is a simple DVD authoring utility for MacOSX that will take ready-encoded MPEG2 files and create a DVD image from them that can be burnt using Disk Utility.
It is an AppleScript front-end for dvdauthor and a variety of other existing command line tools.
I use MPEGStreamClip to edit the MPEG2 files recorded from TV, create the disk image in SmallDVD, then burn it with Disk Utility.
I wrote SmallDVD because I couldn't find anything else that let me create a DVD with several files, and a simple menu with a static background image. You can read about my failed search for a similar app here.
This version adds more control over the colours of the DVD menu. You can now:
specify the colour of the buttons, labels, and the highlight and select colours used when navigating the DVD
choose to use a solid colour as the background instead of an image file
choose whether the buttons should have borders (I always thought this was necessary, but turns out they weren’t).
I’ve also improved (I hope) the logic about which menu settings get saved in the template.
There is known problem when selected dark coloured labels on a dark image background. The button borders show up, but the text doesn’t. I think this is a bug/oddity in iMagine Photo which is used to create the menus. If you use a solid background, or lighter colours, it’s OK.
