This article looks at the new tools and formats for revising, re-editing and reauthoring DVDs. The model for DVD authoring has been similar to that of movie making or music recording, which involves a huge effort to produce. However, professional DVD re-editing relief is on the way. There are two main trends: DVD copying tools that can extract selected tracks and elements from a disc, and DVD re-editing formats that save authoring information on a disc to allow it to be recreated. These approaches are demonstrated by examining a variety of DVD applications to deconstruct, extract and re-edit the contents of DVD discs.
