Burn Dvd From Roxio Videowave

Question

I just downloaded creator NXT pro 5.....had been using Roxi 2012 and upgraded hoping the quality of the DVDs would be less grainy. (Original feed was crystal clear).

Trying to burn DVD with new product. Previously, I could click the DVD icon and without menues, click the burn button directly. Now I see "PREPARE FOR AUTHORING" and create video file. Have been searching help and can't find how to "burn" from this program. What am I missing?

"They" took away the old Roxio MyDVD and substituted a "lite" Corel program in its place.

 

Now you have to click "Prepare for Authoring" in Videowave, and save the video file. Then you run the pseudo-MyDVD and find the saved file, and burn it to disc.

 

I can go do it and create some screenshots for you if you're still stuck.

 

Regards,

Brendon

Thank you to both of you for your responses. I watched the YouTube explanation and followed the directions, but wow...the quality is so much worse than the old "burn" process. I now have the project in "movie clips" m2ts file, MP4 file (too large for a regular DVD, and multiple ISO files. Have done the copy and create as both DVD and video. Have just burned the movie clip version and it looks awful. It appears the create DVDs icon leads me to the mydvd which requires a menu. Can't find how to eliminate the annoying music you get on the root menu. Can't even edit the words root menu. I am getting to be a desperate person and have spend two days working on this. Thanks for allowing the vent. Thinking I will re load 2012 unless a miracle happens tonight.

The method shown in that youTube video is the only way in NXT 5 to createa DVD without a menu. The myDVD in NXT 5 is useless when you want to do any custom menus etc.

 

Now as to quality of the DVD. I have no idea what quality your selected for your DVD. First of all if your source videos are HiDef (mts, mp4, etc) then the quality on the DVD will be quite a bit lower, after all the video on the DVD is "standard" 720x480 video. Also file size of your source videos is basically irrelevant, it is the time length of the video that matters. A standard 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video. Any longer the bit rate has to be reduced and you lose quality.

 

If you can re-install C2012 then that is what I would do

You should be able to load Creator 2012 'under' (not over) NXT 5. Won't work the other way around ;)

 

But the Quality has to be 'HIGH' in your Export As from VideoWave and then in your Burn from Video Copy & Convert.

 

Most likely you have let it lower somewhere along the way. I added some more explanation to that Topic in Post #3 here. Take another look and make sure you doing it that way.
