Best Output for VideoWave


robmel1

Question

I have created a presentation using VideoWave and an looking to create the best output for it. I used the option "Burn With MyDvd Express" to a DVD (which is where I want the output to end up.)

 

Will that insure the highest quality output for a DVD or is there a better method?

 

Thanks,

 

Robert

Save your production in VideoWave, and close VideoWave. Open MyDVD, click on the Add New Movie, browse to the .dmsm file you just saved, in VideoWave, and add it.

 

Make whatever changes you want to the Menu, click on Burn, uncheck the Burn to Disc option, and check either the Save disc image file or Folder Set. Save it to wherever you want, on your hard drive.

 

I save to image file most of the time, and I make a folder where I want it saved, before burning to the file. Once the .iso file has completed encoding, open Disc Copier, and burn the .iso to a DVD.

Sorry gardnpabruce, you type faster than I do. :P I'll leave this since I think I touched a few more points.

 

I assume you have the full EMC 8 and not one of the lite versions that may have come with your computer or a piece of hardware. I'll aso assume that you have the latest version of DirectX 9c and have updated the drivers for your video card.

 

I think that most experienced people will tell you not to use the Express. Use the full MyDVD application. Under project settings, deselect fit to disc and select best. Later, when you go to burn, select create image file (iso). After the project encodes, copy that iso file to a disc using Disc Copier.

 

The best encoding assures that the project is encoded at the highest bit rate. Creating the iso file separates the encoding from the burning so your computer only has to work on one thing at a time. Copying the iso file to the disc seems to work better for a lot of people. Disc copier will lower the bit rate just enough to get that iso onto the disc if it is over one hour in length.

 

If the project is over one hour, you might also want to consider burning that iso file to a DL if you have that capability.

 

Some people claim that software encoding will also give a slightly clearer video. Software encoding is slightly slower. I haven't been able to tell the difference. In MyDVD, go to the top menu, tools>options> select software.

 

Perhaps others will also add what they do.

 

As always, make sure that your computer is free of malware and that your hard drive is defragged. Video work is CPU and video card intensive. Make sure that you have the updated drivers for your video card/chip. Use the one from your card's manufacturer. Don't have anything else running during encoding - no games, don't read your mail, etc.

You have to host the image and place the address in the box after clicking the image button in the post.

 

Sorry to be a pest but I'm not sure how to do the above.

 

I have jpeg file on my hard drive - that's what I want to include in my message.

I was able to get by the error. I'm not exactly sure how.

 

The only two things I did was to change the file name (I had tried to overwrite an existing *.iso file) and I changed a transition in the presentation. I'm not sure why either one would fix the problem but one of them sure did.

I was able to create a DVD using your suggestions but now, when I try to create another *.iso file, I get an error message.

 

I would like to include the screen image of the error but am not sure how to do that.

 

Could you please tell me how I can include the image?

 

Thanks,

 

Robert
