DVD authoring is the process of creating a DVD video capable of playing on a DVD player. DVD authoring software must conform to the specifications set by the DVD Forum group in 1995. The complexity of these specifications results from the number of companies that were involved in creating them.
DVD authoring is the second step in the process of producing finished DVDs:
Step 1 is the creation of the movie (or program);
Step 2, the authoring, is the creation of user menus, insertion of chapter points, setting autoplay and/or repeat options;
Step 3 is the manufacturing (replication) process to mass-produce finished DVDs.
