    I was using my friends DVD studio pro until the new FCP came out, well no DVD studio pro, for now at least. I have been getting by with just IDVD when needed, gets the job done just not nearly as cool as pro.
    So my question is this for FCP users, do you all use DVD studio pro (which makes sense) or do you use a different menu builder?
    I'm curious if no pro menu program comes out for FCX and want to learn a better way to build menus.

    (I assume a pro will come out just an odd question that i thought of)

    Say what you will, and it is a tad expensive, and bundled with Premiere...

    But I like Encore

    DSP Authoring

    Whether using DSP or Encore, it would be better to design your menus in AfterEffects or Motion, then flatten your image or video and bring in as a background element to your menu, then just use the whatever Authoring software more as final compositor of your assets.

    Just add you button overlays and connect everything and create your disc.
