SocuSoft DV to DVD Converter is a program designed to help you turn recordings from camcorders and common video files (e.g. AVI, VOB, MOV, ASF, MPG) into DVD videos.

The interface of the tool is clean and pretty intuitive. Video clips can be imported into the file queue by using either the file browser or "drag and drop" function. It is possible to work with multiple clips at the same time.

In the file list you can check out the thumbnail, duration, resolution, default trimmed length, transition and location of each entry. So, all you have to do is burn the DVD movie to disc or create a disc image file on the had drive.

SocuSoft DV to DVD Converter lets you preview clips in a built-in media player and trim them by marking the start and end position. But you can also apply a transition effect (e.g. horizontal, top center), set SocuSoft DV to DVD Converter to keep the audio stream, enable a fade in and out effect, as well as adjust the volume.

Additionally, you can move items up and down in the file list, add background music, preview the entire project, create a DVD menu by adding items and selecting themes, select the TV system type (PAL or NTSC) and set SocuSoft DV to DVD Converter to automatically power off the computer after conversion.

The video processing program takes a reasonable amount of time to burn a DVD video while using a low-to-moderate quantity of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and includes a help file. We have not come across any issues throughout our testing.

The output DVD clips have a good image and sound quality. But you cannot specify the thread priority or set the tool to open the output directory after encoding.
