I've been trying out a couple of software to transfer my digital photos into VCD/SVCD and DVD formats. I will summarise my efforts and hope to hear some comments from the forumers.
1) Ulead DVD PictureShow 1.0
This is the best of the lot. Supports only VCD and DVD but the pictures come up the best among all the software that I've evaluated. Unfortunately it does not support SVCD format and does not have other transition effects.
2) PicturetoTV ver 1.2
Great transition effects! Easy to use. Does not support DVD format and you need to buy SVCD plugin. I burnt some photos on the VCD format and the pictures on TV is quite disappointing.
3) Photo2VCD v1.60 Pro
Great transition effects, support VCD and SVCD but not DVD formats. Burnt pictures on VCD and SVCD formats. VCD not very good as pictures were grainy. Tried SVCD/PAL format and it was worse - pictures got truncated and still grainy.
Overall, DVD PictureShow is the best IMHO.
Are there other software out there that allows you to create VCD/DVD from digital photos?
