Merging Projects


mark brittain

Question

I have created a number of projects and am trying to merge them into one with no success, they are *.dmsd files. i have tried buringing them as ISO's and then tried merging them using the compile movies option , but is does not appear to work, its hangs at step 2, 37% complete. I understand if they were *.dmsm files then I could merge them but I do not know how to create or convert these. can any one help have spent hours creating hte projects and feel I am falling at the last post

If you are saving as anything but mpg or DV AVI you are degrading your project…

 

All DVD Movies are mpeg2!

 

So if you use mp4, it has to be tinkered with and compressed. Then when MyDVD renders, it has to be un-compressed then tinkered with and recompressed into mpg.

 

Give that a try and see if things don't improve.

 

Overall Length of play is another area. A 4.7gb DVD holds about 1 hour at highest quality. Anything longer gets packed on there by degrading the video quality to make room.

Dmsd = MyDVD Project file.

 

Since you can only have ONE project running, you can't do merges.

 

MyDVD is only a program that is intended to make a User Interface on a DVD. I know of no software that can do what you want…

 

However, you can either project into MyDVD and select Edit Movie. From there (VideoWave) you can do a Save As to create a dmsm file or an Output As to save it as a video clip.

 

For future projects plan them so that you do all of your edits in VideoWave and lastly create your menu interface with MyDVD.
