Yes, I am aware of the fact that physical discs are slowly being replaced by digital media but the process is rather slow, and a lot of people are still using physical discs because they are so accessible, and they do not require fancy hardware. If you are a fan of DVDs, then the good news is that this review is just for you. Today, we are going to do a Wondershare DVD Creator Review; for those who do not know, we at Twitgoo have reviewed different Wondershare offerings, and have always loved the products that they offer. Therefore, I was genuinely excited when I got the chance to review the DVD Creator.
Now if you did not figure out the purpose of this software, this is for people who want to create DVDs using the videos that they already have with them. I know this does not sound like a very attractive feature, but imagine yourself in a situation where you have a lot of videos stored on your PC, but you want to turn those videos into a DVD. This is where the Wondershare DVD Creator comes into play. The good news is that with this software, it will be much easier for you to just create the DVD, and share it with others, or just keep it to yourself.
With that said, in this Wondershare DVD Creator Review; we are going to explore the features, as well as the pros and the cons of the software, and lastly, we will also cover a detailed tutorial so the readers do not have any issue using this software.
In this section of the review, we are going to discuss the features that you are going to get from this software. The reason why we think features are necessary to explore is because some people do not get confused that easily, and they are looking for the complete rundown before they can make a decision.
With that said, the good thing about Wondershare DVD Creator is that it is packed with features that are completely relevant to the software. Which means that the developers added nothing unnecessary into the mix, making this software cohesive, and completely relevant. With that said, the features are listed below so you can have a look at them.
Huge List of Formats Supported
The good news here is that Wondershare DVD Creator supports a long list of formats. The software includes over 150 formats for your convenience. You can use these formats to do DVD, DVD folder, Blu-ray DVD folder, ISO, Blu-ray disc, as well as MP4 to DVD, MKV to DVD, AVI to DVD, and so many other formats there are available. This makes everything so much more convenient for users who have different, uncommon video formats.
In addition to that, there are so many DVD types that are supported including DVD-9, , DVD-5, DVD-R/RW, and in addition to that, BD-R, BD-RE, BD-25, BD-25, BD-50, and BD-100. Needless to say, as far as the discs are concerned, nearly all of them are supported, and you should not have any issue with them either.
Burn Easily With Just a Click
Obviously, we are using a DVD creator, so the main attraction here is the DVD burning feature. In the past, some of the DVD burning softwares that I have used for often not easy for the general consumer, mainly because they had issues with a learning curve. The good news here is that with the Wondershare DVD Creator, burning DVD is just a click away, and it will make your experience super easy. I know it might sound like something that is not entirely possible, but my experience has shown me just how good and flexible this software is.

Another redeeming feature here is that Wondershare DVD Creator lets you edit videos as well. The software uses a built in video editor that makes the whole process much simpler and easy to understand. With this software, you will not have any issues whatsoever either. The whole process is simple and straightforward, and you can trim videos, crop them, enhance the by tinkering with their colours, and saturation, as well as watermark them, and last but not the least, you can even add subtitles to make your entire experience of editing videos much cohesive.

Sometimes you do not want to burn videos onto the disk but instead, you are looking for a different feature like creating photo slideshows. The good news here is that Wondershare DVD Creator, you can easily create photo slideshows, and add as many photos as you want. The good news is that you can eve edit the photo slideshows based on your requirements, and in addition to that, you can actually add music to your photo slideshows, so the convenience is there.

Another great feature that I find very convenient is that you can make DVD menus using the software as well. Now this is a tricky feature, but the good news here is that if you proper to have a cohesive element in the DVDs, then you can go ahead and make DVD menus as well. You can make the menus just the way you want, and the best part here is that you can even go ahead and make official looking DVD menus with the software, and it only takes a couple of minutes for that to happen.

Lastly, you have to go to the burn section where you will burn the DVD. The process does not take long, and depends solely on the amount of files you have stored on your DVD, so that is one thing to make note of.

I have used a lot of softwares over the years that promise to give you a relatively simple and smooth experience of creating DVDs. However, the thing that you need to know is that the thing that is promised is not always there. That is the case with most of the softwares that you use in the market, but as far a Wondershare DVD Creator is concerned, it is by far the best DVD conversion software that I have used so far.

Last but not the least, it also supports a number of different DVD, as well as Blu-ray types, so you are never really out of options. I have no complaints whatsoever as far as the performance is concerned because it works really, really well.
