AVS does author a DVD just like EVD. In fact it gives the option to preview everything before recording to DVD (such as trimmed parts removed, menu, chapter points, image enhancements, audio effects, scaling, etc.). It also outputs to other devices, such as smartphones, game consoles, palm devices, Sony devices, etc. The only thing that it can't do that EVD can do is capture the VHS tape in the first place - obviously. Of course if I had a TV tuner card or similar in my PC I wouldn't even need that as AVS can record from devices connected to the card directly.
