Been looking at this product for a while and reading all the comments. Really like what I see. But want to make 100% sure before I buy since I have bought other products only to find out afterwards there was something I needed it wouldn't do.

My needs are simple. I want to pull in a mpeg file... edit out pieces (like commercials) take that edited file, add a couple chapter points... pull in a personalized background image for my menu, background music for the menu and then just a play button and two chapter buttons... so just one menu page.

That's it....

Other products either wouldn't allow me to customize the menu or would force me to have multiple menu screens

will this product meet my needs?

If you can afford it, I would recommend getting the full retail program suite instead of a cut-down version. Few of us have the version that you are looking at so can't really tell what it can or cannot do.

No program will force you to have multiple menu pages unless they are required by your project structure. For example if you have a single video file and you want to have a "play" button as well as some chapter points then you have to have two menu pages. The main menu page would have 2 buttons: the Play button which would play the video and a "Chapter" button which would take you to the Chapter Menu page where you would select the chapters to play. You cannot have a Play button and Chapter buttons on the same menu page.

Bowers32,
Myguggi must be clairvoyant or else he knows something we don't.. This forum covers several products. Which product are you asking about?

Assorted computers in Windows XP, 7, and 10.

Not clairvoyant , I just assumed the OP was referring to the product (Roxio MyDVD VideoLab HD) for the forum he posted in

I don't see that on the Roxio store as being available.

I was referring to the MyDVD product... it has been several years since I made my own DVD's... when I did I used the Dazzle capture device and it's software and it let you do what I described.. one menu page, showing the two chapter thumbnails so you could chose where to go from the front and only menu page... I guess everything is now like the store bought dvd's where you choose play or "scenes"
