Question

I have a 2G production in VW. Before I selected the "Output As" I changed the rendering from HW to SW rendering and the rendering went fine. I selected a folder on my aux HD for the file and started it. The encoding and the encoding preview worked fine. I played the production after it was finished by selecting the "preview" function. My question now is how do I burn this 2G mpeg file to a DVD?

 

Sorry to ask such a newbie question but I am hoping for some help from those much wiser...

Launch myDVD, select a menu style, then using "add" option add the mpeg video you created.

You could also have saved the VW project file, exited VW, launched myDVD and added the VW dmsm project file.

Hopefully you selected "DVD, best quality" as output in VW

That is also not normally the way things were intended to flow… Look through this for project planning - Here

 

FYI: File size is a useless measure in Video and tells us nothing. Runtime is what counts.

 

JimI just read your post on project planning. I wish I would have seen that a year ago! I kind of stumbled through EMC 10 in my own clumsy way. I did manage to mostly get to what you have laid out since I do all my editing in VW and then always burn to MyDVD. Where I have been burned is when I move clips or photos after adding them to a project. I like the idea of creating a flow folder and then saving the project like you did. It makes a lot of sense, along with copying whatever files I might use to a seperate folder where they would stay.

Now, here is what happened with the project I referred to here. The runtime is 29 minutes, 58 seconds and 10 frames. The project contains mpg, jpg, transitions, caption screens and background audio (no narration). I used MYDVD to burn it but when I played it in the DVD had a lot of green screened video and places where the video froze but the background audio kept playing. It was very annoying. So, I used the "output as" function to save to a video file and I changed it to software render and it worked great. I did end up being able to use Video Copy to burn the file to a DVD but I do not care for the look as much as I like the look of the menu screen when burned with MyDVD but the video played great and the quality wasn't bad.

 

Again, thank you for taking the time to post your workflow. I am going to keep it for future reference. Also, if you have any other pearls of wisdom related to my current project, I am all ears.

 

Thanks again,

POTL

First, in MyDVD, make sure that the Quality setting, at the bottom of the screen, is set to High Quality (HQ). The default is Fit to Disc. Then, burn your production to an image file, or folder set.

 

In Video Copy and Convert, click on the DVD Video Copy tab, and browse to the file you burned, from MyDVD. You will have your menus intact doing it this way.

 

If you click on the Video Compilation tab, and burn, you will get some generic menu. It sounds like this is what you did.
