I decided to put this site up as a place to help those with some DVD Authoring issues and other issues related to editing.

Being a MacCentric type of person, there will be a heavy bent to Apple :)

In a short time there will be tutorials and some detailed explanations because I often find that sometimes posting answers on boards with enough details and examples becomes a challenge and a bit overboard, as it were. Figured it was good karma to help others since so many helped me when I started out awhile back, and they continue to do so to this day. There will be some short movies (a minute or two or length) showing how to set up certain things that often come up.

Movies are all being converted to H.264 QuickTime Format. Feel free to download and scroll through slowly where ever it will help.

As of September 13, 2006, the site is being revised to add further instructions, images and new material. Hopefully the links will remain the same :)

Very often there can be more than one approach to an issue or problem. As time goes on I will try to present more options

Also, as with anything related to computers, bugs can creep in. So no matter what you read, you need to test, test, test, re-test and proof any thing that you make, ALWAYS.
