I think the name of this software product is explicit enough: Leawo Blu-ray Creator does exactly what its name suggests. However, it is not restricted to creating Blu-ray discs only, as it also supports creating various types of DVDs. The application has a nice interface, which is, in fact, very similar to those of various video converters. Luckily, this means that if you have used any of these programs before, even more if they are from the same developer, you’ll have no problem to use this one.
To start creating your disc, you should start by picking the desired contents. Many types of video and picture files are conveniently supported. Moreover, the tool allows importing files from ISO images and video folders. A built-in media player can help you preview the imported files and take snapshots of your scenes. In case, they have more than one audio track and subtitle version, you can also pick one of them. What´s more, you can embed subtitles from external files. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to allow creating clips with various audio tracks, which may be important if you’re creating a multi-language disc.
A few basic editing tasks can also be carried out with this program. For instance, you can trim a segment from the original video, although it is too bad that extracting various segments from the same clip is not supported. You can also crop the image and adjust its parameters. Moreover, the program also lets you add text and image watermarks. Finally, it can create 3D simulations out of 2D videos.
Once you’re done selecting sources and editing them, you can proceed to create a disc menu. If your graphic design skills are somehow limited, it is good to know that there are some built-in templates to choose from and that you can also download others from the developer’s site. In addition, if you would really like to add a very personal touch to the menu, you can always create one from scratch. Fortunately, you don’t need to burn your disc right after creating its contents for the tool also supports saving them to a video folder or an ISO file.
In a few words, Leawo Blu-ray Creator is an easy-to-use application that has everything you need to produce your own video discs with decent quality. However, you should know that some converters come with built-in disc creating features. Perhaps, it would be a wiser move to explore some of them and see if they can do what you need.
