Authoring
When laying ou menus for HD or standard DVDs, users now have a whole new arsenal of creative tools. SmartScene menus feature a large preview window which changes content when the viewer rolls over a text item. Motion filters bring still-image backgrounds to life. Text and objects can be freely rotated, resized and repositioned, to make pleasing menu compositions.

Unique to consumer authoring software, DVD MovieFactory now offers Menu Transitions. These enable pleasing visual transitions between menus and titles. Commonly seen in commercial DVDs, menu transitions have previously only been possible with professional authoring packages.

Slideshows
Digital cameras and camera phones continue to be hot sellers, and one of the best ways to share photos is with a digital slideshow on disc. DVD MovieFactory 5 lets users arrange and enhance their photos, apply smooth transitions and add a soundtrack before burning to CD or DVD.
