creating the best video file?

Question

Hi,

I'm new to Roxio and NXT Pro 6. I have lot of video I captured from my Sony handicam and would like to create a video file. I've imported my files into Videowave and now wish to create a video file. I'd like the best resolution and audio to either play the video on my tablet or desktop but may also want a DVD. Do I need to create two different video files for this? If so,  what's the recommended format to 'make movie'? The setting defaults to AVC smartencode but not sure if that'll work for what I mentioned above. any help would be appreciated!

 

Thanks

What is the format of your video (on your camera, and on the videowave program ? (AVI-MP4-mpeg or ??  )

If it's an AVI or MP4 you can just download it to your tablet and it should play there. If it's in your

videowave program it will also play on your computer. And from your videowave program when finished,

it can be placed in MyDVD program and play there also. How large is the video (in time not memory) ?

Approx. I Hour time max. on a DVD should give good results.

Thank you for your response. The files are .MTS (AVCHD) I do have it downloaded but if I upload to the cloud or shared drive and someone else wants to watch on say their phone, will that format work? I did need to put it in Videowave as I needed to combine tracks and edit it a little. Now I want to create a DVD so my question here would be what format to I want to export to for best quality?

My suggestion for the format to use for a DVD and/or for others that would want to watch it on their phone or ? would be an MP4

video file. I use the free trial program "VLC" to convert many of my video files from my video cameras and have  had no problems.

If you choose, check the internet for the program VLC and use it for conversions.

For uploading to cloud or shared drive, the best format would be mp4. That of course requires the user to have a device to watch that format

For a DVD, the format has to be mpg.

No need to use 3rd party programs as Videowave will create the required format

MPG vs MP4-----

Both mpeg2 and mpeg4 can maintain about the same quality of audio in the encoding process.

The mpeg2 uses H262 encoding while mpeg4 uses H264. Though mpeg2 compression

is simpler than mpeg4, mpeg4's, mpeg4's compression is an improvement over mpeg2 format.

Compared to mpeg2 mpeg4 is a far more versatile encoding format.

For this reason I have used MP4 for most all my videowave productions which include video.

choose what ever you have at your disposal for your videowave and DVD productions and compare

I prefer MP4 !!!
