My father has been painting his art on the computer. He also composes music. What he would like to do is be able to record his music into the computer and then merge his music with his art and create a DVD video that he can present to others or in a gallery.

I am interested in learning:

1. If anyone knows of a good music composition software.
2. What software is recommended for drawing his digital art. (He uses paintbrush right now.)
3. What software is recommended for combining everything together.

We have played with Windows Moviemaker some, however, he wants something a little more professional. Any help or discussion on this would be great. Thanks.

if you had a mac u could use Apple's Garage Band to record the music and iPhoto, iMovie, and iDVD to make the movie with the music you recorded in Garage Band, because all these are integrated. Even though that sounds like a lot of programs it would probably take you an hour to put everything together minus the recording and burning.

I think what he was asking is what software is good for art creation, which photoshop is a good one, Paint shop pro is a cheaper one that is decent, and the gimp is a free one that is good as well.

On the music part, I would definately recommend Acid Pro 4.0 (or if there is a later version) Great for combining tracks and has lots of effects you can add. You can really make all your tracks come together beutifully with it. And you can import various files (avi, mpeg) into it. It will show you each frame right alongside with each track that is lain out. And you can adjust it all accordingly.

Try something like Animation shop to put all those pictures together...you can specify the length of each frame (or in your case, each picture) very easy to use.

hope that helps

Acid isn't really "composition" software, it just lets you layer existing wave files and apply effects to them.
On the music side, it really depends what your father intends to do with the software. If he's going to record it live, then use recorded samples to arrange the music, Acid would be ideal. However, if he needs to compose notes/a whole score directly onto the PC, or if he want's to use advanced MIDI functions, you should check something more specialist such as Cubase, Logic (Mac only AFAIK), or Sonar.

As for putting music and video/graphics together... Premier. There's so little competition if you're seriously going to do this professionally. Yes, other options have been suggested, but Premier is the price it is because it's that good.

i use for the PC sound Forge for the audio(typical) Mac users like Pro tools and Adobe After Effects for video /image and audio integration. It works very well. Chekc out a couple videos on my site feedtank.com
For sound programming that is very simple: FMOD

i dont think the dude is comin back ;-)

photoshop and sound forge for the raw stuff.

then comp it in premiere or i have recently made a full res commercial in vegas video (from sonic foundry) works almost the same as acid but handles video/images aswell, very easy to use and can create comps very quickly. recommend it. ;-)
