Thank you for asking. Yes, that's what I was trying to do.
I found a tip on another forum that said to Export the dsmsn file.
I tried that and it worked, it converted the .dsmsn file to .mpeg and the file showed up along with the film clips.
This is not an obvious thing to have to do. Is there another way?
I wanted to use the Molecules menu, which I was using on Creator NXT 2. Is there a way to change the font? There were a lot of options in the older program.
MyDVD used to burn an .iso file that allowed me to burn a DVD with the menu and three movies. Then it started making an .iso that did not burn the menu and I discovered it was making additional files with the extensions .001, .002 and .0010.
Anyway, last Saturday I managed to use Creator NXT 8 to make a MyDVD file with two movies. I saved it as an .iso and then used the flame icon to burn a disk. The disk was good. I used the Burn Disc Image to burn the .iso like I did with the old program. That did not have the menu. Why not?
It got me thinking that maybe I could burn a disk straight from the MyDVD using my old program. I added three movies and created a menu and it worked! I was able to re-edit and re-burn it and got it the way I wanted. I was very happy on Sunday. But on Monday I tried to do it again with three other movies and it did not work.
The files created by Creator NXT 8 were these:
At 12:28, .MyDVD, 394 KB and .0010, 0KB. At 12:48, .iso, 2,097,120 KB and .001, 2,084,672 KB
The older program, Creator NXT 2 created these files: The good three-movie: .iso was 2,097,120 KB, .001 was 2,097,120 KB, .002 was 97,152 KB and .0010 was 0 KB.
The unsuccessful three-movie had this: .iso was 2,097,120 KB, .001 was 2,097,120 KB, .002 was 25,632 KB and .0010 was 0 KB. The difference seems to be the size of the .002 file.
I also tried using the older program to make a disk with two movies. That failed, too. It had .iso of 2,097,120 KB, .001 of 940,544 KB and .001 of 0 KB.
If these numbers would help explain why sometimes it worked and sometimes not, I would be interested.
I was hoping to use the new program to make disks that look like the ones I had already done. I'm a little disappointed that it limits me to two movies, and the font is less attractive, but I can live with that.
Thank you for hanging in with me on this. BarbP
