How easy is it to make DVDs from your home movies? We're glad you asked...

It's as easy as 1-2-3!

1. Capture (transfer) video from your camcorder.

Capturing video is easy. Just plug your camcorder in to a Firewire (IEEE-1394) port, even while GEAR is running!

GEAR Video lets you control your camcorder with standard controls. You can watch the video and hear the audio, even while you are capturing.

You can start and stop capturing different scenes while the video continues to play. Just press "Start Capture" and "Stop Capture".

You can also capture video from your webcam while you capture audio from your soundcard!

2. Encode video to DVD format (MPEG-2). GEAR 8 includes a fast, high-quality MPEG encoder. Just select the clips you want to encode, and select the bitrate (higher bitrate for higher quality, lower bitrate to increase the amount of video you can fit on your DVD).

This process converts the video from your camcorder's format (DV) to the proper format for DVDs. GEAR Video can also convert DivX video files, Windows Media Video, or Microsoft DVR-MS (Windows XP Media Center Edition recorded video files) to DVD-Video format!

3. Create and burn a DVD-Video disc. Just add your movies to your DVD-Video project and give each one a name. GEAR automatically creates a menu with video thumbnails. You can even choose the best frame of video from each video title to use for the menu thumbnail. GEAR lets you choose the colors for the background and text labels. Or you can use a digital picture for the menu background. If you have many videos, GEAR automatically creates multiple menus. GEAR Video lets you create great looking DVDs quickly and easily.

Get the right GEAR for your tunes!

Don't let the name fool you. GEAR Video has all the audio capabilities you will ever need. CD ripping, burning, audio capture, and audio encoding/decoding and editing are all included with GEAR Video!

Record audio from any soundcard. You can record audio in WAV format, or directly encode it to MP3, WMA, OGG, or MPEG Audio!

Rip tracks from audio CDs. Save as uncompressed WAV files, or encode to MP3, WMA, OGG, MPEG Audio. GEAR's advanced CD ripper lets you select all tracks, or just the tracks that you want, and you can adjust the file size and audio quality, as well as the ripping speed. CD audio discs are automatically recognized, and the artist and track titles are displayed.

Edit audio files. A built in audio editor lets you customize your tracks.

Convert audio files from one format to any other!

GEAR can encode your audio files to WAV, MP3, OGG, WMA, or MPEG Audio (and it can decode from any of these formats). GEAR Video gives you control over quality and file size, while making it fast and easy to convert your digital audio files to your preferred format.

Unlike most other CD or DVD burning software programs, GEAR Video is multi-tasking! You can burn CDs and DVDs to more than one burner at a time. You can use any combination of CD or DVD burners - they don't have to be the same model. And your burners can be connected through any type of interface (IDE, SATA, SCSI, Firewire, USB 1.1 and 2.0).

Why sit around waiting on your software? Get your DVD burner in GEAR! With GEAR Video, you can continue to work on new disc projects while you are burning CDs and DVDs. Duplicate batches of CDs or DVDs using your Windows PC and multiple CD or DVD burners, at any speed, to any media format, including DVD Double-Layer recordable discs (DVD+R DL, or DVD-R DL). Burn the same title to multiple drives, or different titles to different drives.

GEAR Video can copy DVD Movies (DVD-Video titles), or import and burn DVD Movies to any recordable or eraseable format. Create CD-ROM or DVD-ROM titles, to back up your software, media, or data files. With up to 8 GB of storage on DVD+R DL or DVD-R DL discs, GEAR Video gives you the capability to quickly and easily back up your important files. Burn to DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW, or DVD-RAM drives.
