Hi,Jim. DVD Creator has a built-in video editor, which enables you to trim, rotate, crop videos, add text watermarks, apply special effects, and adjust the video color etc. You can add personalized background music to the photo DVD slideshow. But if you want to replace the video audio with different audio, you can turn to Aimersoft Video Editor, which is more professional and powerful in video editing.
Just purchased Aimersoft DVD creator yesterday. Guess I'll find out when I get into it but I was wondering if you can directly edit videos in it like a movie maker. ( I want to replace the video audio with different audio, or do I need to do that first with a movie maker before importing to DVD creator)?
It sounds really interesting! I will try it and see if it really does what it promises.
