Yep, I should downgrade, but then soon Qt 3.2 should be state of the
art (since 3.3b1 is currently out).

I am planing in doing so under qdvdauthor.sourceforge.net as soon as one
can actually use it ;)

There is next to no overlap as far as I can tell. I am intending in
generating the gui for the menu's first, then for subtitles and last but
not least might integrate the burning process as well as a preview tab.
I could actually play around with dvdauthor enough now to be able to
wrap up the basic handling. I hope my Son/wife will grant me this extra
time I need ;)
The nice thing is that one can prep a Video DVD and watch it from HD
with xine (or similar), thus the burning process is not currently that
So in other words you would be able to use kdenlive to generate the
videos, cut them together and then with dvdauthor/spumux you can create
menus, subtitles and additional sound tracks to put onto a DVD (or VideoCD).
The integration in kdenlive could be a new tab next to the the [Effects
Setup] - tab. I think this would be logical. As I said before I will do
the separate app but it should be fairly easy to integrate most parts in
kdenlive without major hassle since I am using Qt.
