Although Nero is one of the most famous DVD burning apps on the market, it also can't meet you sometimes. For example, there is no Mac Nero version. Or you want more features, say, make DVD menu or add background music etc. For whatever reason if you want something like Nero, you can get an ideal program like Nero here.
In fact, there are a lot of DVD burning software like Nero in the world. However, in this article, I'll introduce Wondershare DVD Creator (DVD Creator for Mac ) - a great app extraordinarily similar to Nero even better than Nero in some respects. With it, you can burn almost any form of video file (eg. MOV, AVI, MPEG, MP4, VOB, MKV, MTS, M2S, FLV etc) straight onto a DVD disc. (DVD–5 and DVD–9 supported; DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, DVD-RAM.) And thanks to its free DVD menu template library and handy editting tool, it also lets you customize your own DVD menu, add background music/picture, crop, trim, rotate videos and do more quickly and easily. Both Windows and Mac version are available here. Just get the right version and refer to the detailed guide on Windows. (Note that the steps on Mac are very similar.)
1 Import videos or photos
After you run this program like Nero, you can import media files in 2 ways: directly drag and drop the videos or photos into this app's left pane or click Import button to add them. Note that you can group a few videos together to form a chapter by adding a title. If you want to separate them, just delete the title you added. To change the video sequence, just click the "↑“ or "↓" option at the bottom.
2 Edit the video files (Optional)
The built-in video editor lets you enhance your video files, including Crop, Trim, Rotate, watermark, Effects, etc. To run this video editor, simply highlight a video and click "Edit" button to enter into its editting window. All the changes will be applied immediately and you can preview the effect in reall time.
3 Customize a DVD menu
This app is similar to Nero in terms of DVD burning, but is better than Nero by offering you lots of cool features, say, personalizing your DVD menu. Just switch to Menu tab at the top, and then choose one menu template you like, next, personalize it with your favorite background image, background music, item position, button, text, etc. If you don't need a menu, just choose "No Menu". Or if you want more, click the green down arrow button to download more free menu templates.
4 Preview your project and start to burn a DVD
In order to ensure your DVD movies look great, you can click the "Preview" tab to preview your DVD movie in real-time. At last, insert a blank DVD disc to your dvd driver and click the "Burn" button at the bottom-right corner of the interface to start burning DVD disc with this software like Nero.
Tips: If the size of these added media files is larger than 4.7G (DVD5), but you don't have a DVD9 disc (7.9G) and insert a DVD5 disc instead, the program will automatically compress your files to fit this DVD5 disc (4.7G).
