Creator 2011 looks like a great project for many of my projects including audio (mostly vinyl) and video capture. Before buying I would like to know how to use the program to burn Transport Stream files to DVD.
I'm currently importing videos from a VCR using a Hauppauge 2250 PCI-E card and Hauppage WinTV. This creates a very large .ts file. I then load the .ts file into Aimersoft Video Converter (trial version) where I crop, enhance and convert the file to .vob format. After that I open the .vob file in Windows (7 64-bit) DVD Maker, add a menu, and burn to DVD.
Question 1: How would you use Creator 2011 to capture video from a VCR connected to a Hauppage card, and output to DVD?
Question 2: I like the trial version software I'm using for file conversion because it fully utilizes my quad-core processor (AMD Phenom II X4 965). Is there a 64-bit version of Creator 2011, and how efficient is it?
Thanks in advance for your suggestions which hopefully do not include purchasing additional hardware.
Creator 2011 will work with certain TS files directly. I doubt that it will capture from that TV card but you would have to try it. Most cards come with proprietary software. Roxio software can come with a proprietary capture device.
What you could do is Capture as you do now and do all your editing in Creator 2011's "Edit Video- Advanced" application and burn to DVD using Create DVD. You can do all your editing in Edit Video Advanced and output it to mpg2 format or simply save it as a project. You would add the projects or the mpg2 files to Create DVD to create menus and burn the DVDs.
There is no 64bit version of Creator; Speed of converting and burning are associated with your other hardware especially your video card (which you didn't mention.)
