I created a video that i made from a dvd videorecorder in MyDVD. It saved as a .dmsd file. How can I change that to.mpg or other widely accepted video format?

 

The saved .dmsm file is just a set of instructions to tell the program what to do to the original file, when it is burned to a DVD. It isn't a movie file.

 

If your intent is to burn your production to a video DVD, close VideoWave, open MyDVD, click on Add New Movie, then browse to the folder you saved your VideoWave file, select it, click ok, then burn it to a DVD or image file.

If your intent is for other video formats, open VideoWave and add in the movie. Make any changes (trims, transitions, etc.). From the File menu, select Output As and there are numerous formats and qualities to choose from.

Somewhere along the way I became of the impression that after you created your project in Videowave [.dmsm] you should always output the project as a mpeg-best format and then using that file in MyDVD to create your movie before burning to .iso.

 

Is there any particular advantage to outputting to mpeg-best rather than just sending the .dmsm file to MyDVD?

None that I can see. Back in EMC 7, 7.5, and maybe even EMC 8, sometimes when folks were having sync problems, outputting the file, in VideoWave, then using that file in DVD Builder, or MyDVD in EMC 8, it cleared up audio sync problems.

 

Also, in EMC 7 and 7.5 don't have the number of tracks that 9 and 10 have, so if you were trying to do an effect like the Brady Bunch, you put and overlay on a colored panel on the internal track and one on the external track, then output that file to an .avi or .mpg, then brought that file into the VideoWave project and repeat as necessary to attain your final goal.

 

For a "normal" production that you plan on burning in MyDVD, there is no advantage to outputting it first, that I can see.
