    Just out of curiosity, does anyone here know what professional authoring houses use software-wise to put dvd's together?

    I believe that Sonic Scenarist is the "de facto" standard, but don't quote me on that. Don't even think about using it for home unless you intend on putting up a second mortgage.

    Every house I know uses Scenarist for the true top-level Hollywood studio level DVDs.

    It runs about 5 figures

    Like everything else at that level of production, this piece is not just some program installed on a PC: this is a "system" with specific hardware and software elements.

    This is not something you can just buy a CD and install.

    It looks like depending on the features you get, Scenarist runs anywhere from $15k - $40k. Yikes! Hard to believe this is from the same guys who make the 'MyDVD' package that came with my Pioneer.
