Problem Burning From .iso File & ? On Optional Settings


keweims

Question

I have a couple of questions, EMC9 Home page, lower right hand corner it says Welcome and under that is Options which opens a file tree, the COPY- I have nothing checked should I have something in that file checked?

the VIDEO file-should I have smart or custom encoding? audio format? under HD Definiition encoding should ATSC or DVB? and what should video format and audio format be set at?

I need to make several copies of the production which is a slideshow created in Videowave9 contain pic/trasnsitions/music/ I have tried to create an ISO file, but when I burned from that file it came out lousey, a lot of skips, and such. I still am having the file to big for HQ so I bought a dual layer reader/writer and am waiting for the dl discs to arrive. I will make only a few copies using the dl discs the rest will just have to be done in standard play.

Your computer specs came through fine.

 

Let me take a question at a time.:

 

Don't worry about the preview, it is low quality to begin with and some of the temp files do degrade. If I remembered which one it is, you could delete it and get back to the original quality. The only real way of telling what it will look like is to burn the ISO to a disc. Get a couple of best quality RW discs for this if your DVD player will handle them.

 

You can get a quick approximation of quality by downloading VLC (free player) and play the ISO file on your computer.

 

If you had skips and hang ups in the DVD, there are two possibilities 0 the DVD blank quality and the player.

 

Use top quality DVD blanks (Verbatim, TDK) Typically store brands and Memorex are not very good. If there are even slight manufacturing defects, then they don't burn evenly and may give you the problem. cdanteek has a link to a program to check your burns in his signature.

 

With the DVD that doesn't play well, is that on your computer or on a DVD player? What program on your computer ? If on a DVD player, have you tried a different one -perhaps a friend's? You might want to try using a CD cleaner disc. You can get them almost anywhere (Wal-Mart). You may want also to try to nlow out the interior from dust accumulation *protect your eyes).

 

As for the skips and issues related to transitions in preview, that may be related to your video card/chip. I'm sure you have updated the video drivers and also updated DirecX 9c. Go to the nVidia control panel and set the card/chip performance to best performance and not best appearance. You can change it back later.

 

In Video Wave, do an output to mpg2 file for DVD and watch the preview. You need only to watch a couple of transitions to see if you are getting the jumps. If you are, go to the top menu and select tools, options and put a dot next to software or hardware - opposite to where it is now. Try encoding a short section again to see if that cured the transition issue.

 

When you make multiple copies, copy from the ISO file and not a disc copy. That way, you are not compounding any burning glitches on the DVD.

 

Do you only have that 80 gig hard drive? Make sure that it is cleaned of all the temporary and other garbage files (CCleaner is good for this) and that you defragment frequent frequently (Auslogic Defragmenter is good for this). Don't use the registry cleaner for now. Also consider getting another larger hard drive. Perhaps an external USb connected hard drive might be something you want to invest in. Get something in the 300 to 500 Gig range as a long term investment for all your videos and files. They are under $100 on line.

 

I do plan on purchasing and external hard drive with 500gig. I did use the ccleaner,and the auslogic defragmenter. I am also using Verbatim DVD's. I followed your instructions again and burned to an ISO file. I have made 2 discs from the iso file and no skips or hanging. But as I said before the quailty seems to be slightly degraded. The funny part is it looks great when I play it from videowave or when I send it to burn to dvd. It is when I play it in a dvd player connected to a tv that shows the degrading. I have played it on several dvd players (1 wouldn't even read the disc) the others played it but with the pics appearing a little pixelated. You mentioned possibly finding the original file? I was not aware that I might have several files of this production, is the an original somewhere in my computer? If so how would I find it? Thanks again,

The file I was referring to was for the preview on your computer. Since that is not your problem, don't worry about it.

 

Slide shows are at standard TV quality 720 by 480. If you are watching the video on HiDef TV, then the quality depends on your TV's ability to properly render the lower definition. Did you try playing that ISO file on your computer using VLC? How did it look?

 

Sorry, I don't have any further suggestions if all your settings were as above. Perhaps someone else has an idea.

I used three versions of the software before I made any changes in that options box. Stay with the defaults. That should have nothing to do with your past problems.

 

Now, I assume you are talking about Video Wave and MyDVD settings. See images below. These are my normal settings (images are from EMC 10). I'm not really sure where you are seeing some of those options; are they in Copy DVD when you go to copy the ISO file to the disc? For now, simply copy the ISO to the disc using Creator Classic. As above, I have EMC 10 whihc has a diffferent copying program (Video Copy and Convert.)

 

I hope you are not using My DVD Express.

 

DVB is Blue-ray. Unless you have that burner and player, don't use it. If you are making a slide show, I don't think that HD settings will do anything. Your slide show will be 720 by 480. If you are editing HD video than that control works. (I may be wrong on this one.)

 

For a beginner, and one who is going to make a ISO file, stay with smart (again, I'm not sure where this option is). Unless you have an OEM product, stay with the default audio -AC3.

 

I don't remember all the suggestions so remind me; did you try outputting the project to a file from Video Wave as an "mpg2 for DVD , best quality"? If so what happened? Note that if there is something wrong with the project - transitions, images, audio file, etc. - the encoding will hang. Did you try this and what were the results?

Since we seem to have a failure to communicate (in that we can't seem to find out what is causing the original issue), how is what you are doing different from what I posted and what settings are different from the images?

 

Please put your computer specs in your signature. It will show up in all your post so people 1) Don;t keep asking you or 2) have to go looking for it. Simply go to near the top of this page and click on My Controls and edit your signature to include the information including CPU, audio and video cards. memory, etc.

Sorry about the double posting, I am obviously a "newbie" I have updated my signature w/computer info. I had put that info in the wrong place so it did not show up-Sorry again.

I had followed your previous instructions to the letter on saving/burning to an ISO file. And went to Creator Classic then to burn to a dvd. Which as I said before had skips and hang ups in it. I will try again now to burn to and ISO file. I also have noticed that each time I burn the production it seem to degrade slightly, for example when going from a transition to a pic. the pic seem pixelated for a second then you can notice a slight movement like the picture is now slipped into where it should be and becomes clear. My last question is if I am making many copies of this production is it better to burn from the ISO file (assuming it comes out right) or from the original program (videowave 9) or copy one of the dvds?

I hope my signature comes through w/my computer info, I will keep my fingers crossed
