Can anyone tell me which is the best format of audio (e.g. wav, mp3 etc) to use when adding background audio to a production. I seem to run into very long time span when encoding move on My DVD after exporting production?

wav is always the best if you are talking about a video project. Not all mp3 files are the same and some high quality mp3s will cause problems.

The time to encode depends on your computer - CPU, GPU and memory. Try an experiment.create a short project. Encode the project to a mpg2 file with hardware encoding on sand then do the same with software encoding. Which one is faster? Use that in the future. For this experiment when you are using Edit Video -Advanced, select to output and select mpg2; no need to use MyDVD.

In Video Wave go to the menu and select tools then options. A window will open where you can select hardware or software.(The select will be made in both Video Wave and MyDVD).
