Sony Creative Software has announced upgrades to its DVD Architect and Bluprint applications for authoring Blu-ray discs.
DVD Architect 5 software enables independent producers and videographers to
author both a standard definition DVD or a High Definition Blu-ray Disc complete with full motion buttons, motion menus, scene selection menus, subtitles and alternate video and audio tracks. The drag-and-drop DVD Architect interface, layout and authoring tools work with the Sony Vegas Pro video editing and production software, making it easy to develop dynamic menubased DVDs, movies, picture slideshows and music compilations.
Blu-print 4.3 enterprise software helps to simplify the complexity of producing interactive Blu-ray discs at professional studios or authoring houses. Blu-print 4.3 now features integration with Ensequence on-Q Create for Blu-ray Java, which enables Blu-ray Disc developers to create and distribute Java based interactive features.
Blu-print 4.3 features automation tools to simplify otherwise daunting tasks, such as creating multi-story Blu-ray discs. Bluprint 4.3 offers a full-featured high level scripting language that saves DVD authors from having to write BD assembly codes, as well as the ability to export all project objects into XML files for easy BD-Java authoring using Ensequence on-Q Create for Blu-ray Java.
