Has any one used TMPGEnc DVD Author?? I use DVDit!PE now but TMPGEnc does such a great job at encoding I thought maybe they did it again with TMPGEnc DVD Author.

I looked into TMPGEnc DVD Author some time ago and it doesn't offer much more then the regular software that comes with most DVD-recorders.

I instantly bought Ulead DVD workshop and am very happy with it. Especially for animations it gives even better encoding results (at factor 100, 9mbps and AC3-audio) then every setting I tried in TMPGEnc, especially with smooth gradients: I tried all kinds of GOPS, compression rates, etc.

For a small 300 bucks you get most professional features of the big guys; only when you have to make masters for tape or disc you must go to the more expensive authoring packages.
