what is authoring

Authoring is the process of combining materials such as video, graphics, sound, animation, documents, and files into a format suitable for viewing on the appropriate device. Such devices include but are not limited to DVD players and computers, and Internet browsers. Often times this requires the creation of an interface, allowing the user to navigate and access the different assets or files easily and conveniently. In the case of DVDs, this interface consists of a menu or menus with play and chapter (scene) button ForCD-ROMs and ECDs, this interface is called a splash page. For more information about authoring see DVD authoring, CD-ROM authoring, or ECD authoring.

TESTIMONIALS

  • I am so grateful to the Authoring House @ Disc Makers, because, you know, I had this idea for creating instructional DVDs that I could then use as a supplement to my live workshop. The problem came with how do I edit film (and make a DVD)? At one point I was wondering if I would have to go to film school. I don't want to make films; I just want to make these instructional videos that are very simple and I don't see why I should have to go back to college just to be able to do this. It was so frustrating. Finally, when I talked with (The Authoring House @) Disc Makers and they said, oh yeah, we can do that for you. I can't even tell you what a relief that was for me. And then they followed through with truly professional services and I so appreciate that.
