The article discusses about DVD menu authoring. The success of DVD authoring programs is attributed to the use of graphical interface to make the process of linking DVD assets easier and more logical. The combination of technical and aesthetic will always be the foundation of DVD authoring. Authors should learn the techniques that make a DVD successful, then they should adapt such lessons to their own DVD authoring. Further, defining the end of chapter behavior should always be considered by users.
