I took 3 years of video footage (got the camcorder when Hollace
was almost 1) and authored them to full featured DVDs with
custom menus, animation and music.
The DVD starts with an animated kaleidoscope pattern set
to music by They Might Be Giants. The main menu items then
Disk one and three are similar in where I have multiple menu
screens with 10 clips each on them. Disk one is the favorite
clips and disk three is everything I couldn't fit on the other
2 disks. Disk two is a special events disc with the 4 birthdays
and Christmases celebrated. On the Birthday section, I have
a slide show of the the early days going back as far as the
10 week ultrasound and birth annoucement. The Christmas section
also features my famous Christmas
cards. All menus and slide shows are set to music, mostly
from They Might Be Giants kids album "No!", John
Lithgow's Singing in the Bathtub and the Channel Sisters which
was a favorite kids album of mine.
This was authored in DVD Studio Pro on the Mac.
