For my wife's non-profit, I handle all of the computer/creative work including filming the shows and putting together DVDs of the performances. For a while now I've used DVDStyler for the DVDs, but the last few years it has just gotten nearly unusable with it taking multiple days trying to re-encode DVD files Compressor generates. So, I'm looking for something new to use- but it seems like there's NOTHING else out there for the Macs that doesn't use canned, generic menus. I need something that I can create custom menus for from scratch. It's hard to believe with how much creative work gets done on Macs that there is NOTHING else out there that can create professional-looking DVDs (and more specifically, menus) besides DVDStyler. What am I not finding in my search for a replacement?

I still use DVDSP for any DVDs I make. I still keep a few hard drives with the OSs that will still run it, and boot from one of those when needed.
