Any help appreciated. How easy would it be to create a template to make several DVD's (menu's, etc) the same? IE: If you want to start a business providing video service to someone, like people who are selling their cars. You go to these peoples places, and film the interior, exterior, features, etc. Then you go home and just export the video into a ready made template. The DVD will have the menu buttons for Interior, Exterior, etc. Is this possible, and what software would you use?

It's pretty straightforward setting up templates. You need an NLE to edit the video footage, an encoder to convert the edit to MPEG2, a DVD authorer to build the DVD & a graphics design program to make the components that the authorer will use. Some programs combine multiple functions. A standard professional entry-level setup would be Final Cut Pro, DVD Studio Pro & Photoshop. You could probably get by with a consumer-grade setup like iMovie + iDVD. This is all Mac stuff, BTW. -r

I think Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro are both available for PCs. Thanks for the help, djdb.

banjo...both of those are only Mac programs. They are awesome. You could do it with iMovie and iDVD as well. What you are talking about is quite simple stuff and easy to put together. A good way to make some quick cash.
