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 werenâ€™t).
Iâ€™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 doesnâ€™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, itâ€™s OK.
