To be perfectly honest, I find myself dropping down to a CLI
on a regular basis because the GUI (yes, even under Windows)
fails to be exact with the options. I glance over at the file size
and I'm like "WTF are you encoding with and at what rate?!"
But I still prefer to use GUI tools, especially for managing the
I just want to re-iterate one last time that if a Windows application
works well for you, then there's nothing wrong with using it. There
is nothing wrong with paying for software that matches your
expectation in workflow.
E.g., as I always say there is a fine line between people preferring
software and other solutions do not exist or does not do something.
There are countless tools for fine-grained DVD menu creation and
they can work on the same directory you are encoding files to. If
they have to be the same program, well, I guess I'm an idiot. ;)
My apologies for being an idiot. I'm regularly an idiot. ;)

My apologies. I'd forgotten that some people prefer to use a GUI for this kind
of thing. For that, I'd recommend using avidemux (http://fixounet.free.fr/avidemux/).
Even still, to get a VOB (and other requisite DVD files) from the MPEG that's
generated, you'll need dvdauthor and/or qdvdauthor.
