All standard DVDs have to be in mpeg2 format :blink: that is why there are no other formats available

 

What else do you expect?

I'm just asking, because after MyDVD is finished to encode and when w i watch the movie you can see that picture is hacking very slighly at the same time intervals.

What do you mean by hacking?

Where do you observe this? When playing the DVD on your computer or on a stand-alone player? Have you played the DVD on different players? What quality did you use when burning the DVD?

What make of DVD media are you using?

Very hard to explain, but you could say that movie is stopping for a milisecond.( if you would push pause and then continue. its the same effect but its so fast that movie or sound doesn't stops its just be like hacking effect) This already excist when burn to folder. I burned with fit to disc both on dvd and to folder with the same effect. Played DVD on two computers and on DVD player.

The only way how I can show graphically is like this (normal playback is continues line. If you move your finger on the table and then stop and then continue to move and so on... Only this effect is so short and last like milisecond at the time or something).

Don't use Fit-to-Disc it gives poor results, use High Quality setting and burn to folder set. Then use Creator Classic to burn to DVD. How long in time is the video?

I am pretty sure that Fit-to-Disc did a poor job on that video. What is the size of the folder set that was created on the DVD?

 

It was i think 2.90GB

 

After I will burn to folder. Should I burn it onto DVD with Video Copy & Convert?

Since a 4.7GB DVD can hold 60 minutes at best (high) quality then you can see that Fit-to-disc compressed the 90 minutes of video down to slightly more then half of the DVD. Obviously you will lose a lot of quality :rolleyes: . This is why most of the gurus recommend to never use the Fit-to-disc :unsure:

You can use Video Copy & Convert, or Creator Classic. I use Video Copy & Convert, but I know some folks use Creator Classic, if they burn to an image file (.iso).

 

I always burn to a Folder Set, instead of an .iso file.

Ok. Now I'm about to do first attempt. With "Same as original" and will burn to folder set. Though when its encoding now it says that it will be 8304,9 MB. If i will choose to burn to DVD with Creator Classic is it going to do that it fits on DVD disc?

Preview the movie first using Cineplayer -- it should be able to play your folder set.

 

You can use Video Copy and Convert to burn the movie to a standard DVD. It will compress the movie though in which case you will lose quality but it's up to you to decide if quality is acceptable. If you don't want to lose quality, you can try the dual layer DVD, or split your production into two (to create two standard DVDs).

Preview mode quality does not mean very much :rolleyes:

 

What is the source of the video you are using?

 

I used some different movies in AVI format. I encoded now with High Quality like you advised guys, burned movie to imge and movie is in good quality. Only I still have that little annoying hacing effect.

 

Guys, image file is now 7,30 GB. Can I burn it onto usual DVD with Creator Classic? Is it going to compress or something that it would fit on DVD?
