Be Sure to Have Trai Look Over Your Files Before Replication

Trai Forrester is the World's Acknowledged Leading Authority on DVD Studio Pro®

Trai got his start with DVD Studio Pro in the spring of 1999 when the program was known as Astarte DVDirector. Trai became the world's leading Astarte Dealer/Distributor by fall of 1999, traveling throughout the country, installing and training on the new system, helping bring in scores of early adopting studios into DVD Production.

Trai released the "TFDVD-9 Maker" the workaround to DVD SP's DVD-9 formatting bug - summer 2002'. For almost 2 years afterwards, it's the only way to guarantee a spec compliant DVD-9 in DVD Studio Pro®.

Trai led the development of DVDAfterEdit, beginning in Fall, 2002. The program was originally designed to extend DVD Studio Pro's capabilities.

DVD Project Coordination / QC

Save time and give your DVD project the best chance for full success, by having Trai guide your DVD production team.

This consultation package is all encompassing - Trai provides input from the very beginning of the project by telephone (conference call, usually) covering every area of the DVD project's construction, as it progresses. Also, assets are periodically sent to Trai by FTP, hard drive, or email for his input.

Everything is covered:

  • Disc Navigation Structure / Layout
  • Asset Creation, i.e., Menus, video encoding, audio and subtitles.
  • Disc Programming - Trai will show you some commands to add to your disc, and make sure your programming is streamlined.
  • Project Proofng - This is performed at New Constellation Technologies. Please send in all the project files for either Sonic Scenarist or DVD Studio Pro.
  • DVD Packaging - Trai should approve the DVDs final packaging; a good percentage of DVDs with playability issues out in the market are caused by damage from the packaging.
  • DLT Pre-mastering - This crucial procedure will be performed at New Constellation Technologies.
  • DVD Check Disc Proofing
