A useful piece of software that will help users who wish to create and customize their own autorun interfaces for CDs / DVSs. AutoRun Design features an accessible editing interface with a lot of useful functions and it provides the necessary tools to shape and refine the autorun interface to the requirements of average users.
Having a straightforward interface and basic looks, AutoRun Design could be the right choice for users who are passionate and are just making contact into the autorun menu creation field.
Providing plenty of tools for inserting various content and defining the characteristics of the autoplay interface, AutoRun Design might be sufficient for the needs of basic users.
However, although it offers a good degree of adjustment for the characteristics of the individual objects, it does lack more advanced options in the main menus and advanced users will not be pleased with this aspect.
AutoRun Design features a main window where users can preview the elements of the autorun interface and a side panel where the individual objects can be edited in terms of cursor aspect, sounds, images, hint, transparency, etc.
A built-in wizard for the autorun creation is available and users benefit from numerous hints and suggestions presented in it to help them choose the content characteristics that best fit their preferences.
Several types of content are supported by the application and users can choose to insert labels, buttons, scrolling text, images, videos and even embedded media players.
