Nero Burning offers a complete audio-editing and CD-burning
solution, and even lets you design and print cover art for
your new CDs. It all starts with the Nero Wave Editor, which
offers non-destructive editing that lets you try many options
and undo all changes. A range of audio-processing options
gives you complete control over your audio files before you
record them to disc. A real-time "audition" lets
you select and hear effects in real time, as your sound file
plays. Preset Manager lets you save your frequently-used settings.
There are also features for sample format conversion, anti-aliasing
filters, dithering, and noise shaping.
You can design your own CD graphics quickly and easily with
Nero's updated Cover Designer, which helps you produce professional-looking
layouts for your CD booklets and inserts. Cover Designer includes
assorted graphic effects, customizable design templates, multi-/maxi-album
support, and predefined paper stocks. The Nero MPEG-1 video
encoder allows you to make VCD and SVCD discs from MPEG files,
and convert AVI video to MPEG via a drag-and-drop interface.
Your disc will then be ready to be burned as a Video CD, playable
on your PC or in compatible DVD players.
You can also add onscreen menus to your Video CDs and Super
Video CDs. These menus are like cover pages for your discs,
making it easy to select tracks for playback. And Nero 5.5's
audio plug-in interface makes it easy to create your own custom-written
support files (DLLs) for the new formats of your choice. (Programming
knowledge and extra third-party tools required.) If you're
a programmer or software developer, you can now use Nero 5.5's
embedded API to add Nero Burning's powerful CD-writing functions
to your own applications.
