Damaged, Distorted Playback


Rosey

Question

Hi,

 

Can somebody tell me what I did wrong when burning to DVD, a movie I edited?

 

I imported the movie from a DVD to my computer using the Roxio edit application.

I edited some things and burned it in MyDVD. (The movie was recorded on a DVD from a movie on TV)

 

While burning, I could see the scenes played as they should, on the window. It was a 2 ½ hours production, and it took 4 hours to burn.

 

When I played it back, I see on the side of the screen:

Menu 1 and Menu 2. Below that it says: Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.

All I get to see of the movie is the title, over and over, and nothing else, and whatever text there is all fuzzy you cannot read it.

 

I went back to MyDVD and tried the Preview, which I didnt do before, and the effects are the same.

 

 

This are the settings in MyDVD when I burned it and when I previewed:

 

Menu style: Home theater

Apply style to: Entire project

Quality: Fit to disc

 

Underneath Disc size there is a line. The line is yellow almost to the end and says: Used 4568.0 MB Free 132.0 MB Time Remaining: 00:04:56.

But I had an empty disc in the driver

 

In the window I get after clicking the Burn icon it says:

Ready to burn

Capacity of current disc: 4706.1mb

Estimated size of project: 4693.mb

Speed 16.0X

 

I appreciete any suggestions,

Rosey

Thanks sknis,

 

I can't cut anything from the movie. Would you recommend to divide it in 2 and burn to 2 different DVDs? What would be the best quality to burn them in: Same as original, EP, LP, SP, HQ?

 

Thanks,

Rosey

 

Did you make an ISO file when you burned the original DVD? If so, you MAY be able to burn the ISO file to a double (dual) layer DVD.

 

If not, cut the movie in half in video wave and then burn each half to an ISO file at HQ. Then burn the ISO to a single layer DVD. You may not need a menu for the second half unless you want chapters. A menu on the first half is up to you.

 

Add the movie to Video Wave. split the movie at about 1/2 at a convenient place. Save the project but keep it open. Delete the section after the split and save that with a name you will remember (1st half). After you save it, close it and then reopen the original project that you split in half. This time delete the first section of the split. Save that with a name you will remember (2nd Half)

Home burned discs = one hour at best quality video on a single layer DVD. Up to two hours at crappy quality. Double for DL discs.

 

More than 2 hours; all kinds of problems including those to do with menu.

 

File size means nothing unless you are just burning data.

 

Fit to disc setting - crappier still.

 

Encode at best quality setting to an Image file. Use Video Copy and Convert to burn the ISo file to a DVD AFTER you cut it down to no more than 2 hours.

Thans,

 

How do I set up to burn without a menu? I don't want a menu at all, but it's there automaticlly when I go to MYDVD.

After you open Create DVD, go to the top menu and select "file" then "new Project" and make your selection there. One more thing, without a menu, the video will loop after it finishes.
