ConvertXtoDVD gives you the tools you need to take any video files from your computer and burn them to a DVD. While this procedure has always been possible, this program removes the complications and makes the process accessible to even novice users.
Excellent interface: When you open this app, it's clear what you need to do to add files, how to make any desired adjustments, and then convert and burn them to a DVD. All technical aspects of the process are handled for you, and optimal settings are automatically chosen. But if you have more experience with this process and want to customize elements of the converted file, you can adjust things like brightness, contrast, and aspect ratio, and you can make edits, all from the main window.
Chapters and subtitles: Another nice feature of this program is the way it automatically adds chapters to the files you process to burn to your DVD based on their details. You can also manually adjust the placement of these chapters and add subtitles before burning.
Trial limitations: The trial version of this app produces a watermark on converted files, so it's good for getting a feel for the program's capabilities; but to produce anything useable, you'll have to purchase a license for $44.99.
ConvertXtoDVD gives users of all skill and experience levels the ability to create DVDs from files stored on the computer. The finished DVDs can play on any DVD player, so you can enjoy your movies on your own TV or send them to friends and family without worry that they won't be able to play them.
