Need Basic How-To For Dummies

Question

I am trying to help a friend make a video DVD of about 35 short MPEG clips. (He purchased Creator 2011 Pro.) As I tried to load the clips, I found I had to load them one-by-one. That didn't seem right, but no matter how many I selected, only one loaded. After every 3 files it would pop-up saying the menu was full, and did I want to create a sub-menu. We ended up with quite a few sub-menus by the end. After the last file was loaded, the program was not responding. Had no choice but to close it, and everything we had loaded was gone. I'm not finding the user guide to be very user friendly. Is there a step-by-step guide for this project somewhere? We don't want anything fancy--just one DVD with all of the small clips playing uninterrupted.

 

Thanks for any help!

Digital Guru, I looked at all of the links in that post, but I'm just not seeing one that shows how to do what seems would be a simple task. :( Is the answer there hiding in plain sight?

Can you please provide the complete name of the Roxio software that you have.

 

From your description, you want to combine first those small video clips into a single video and then create a dvd out of that combined video.

It sounds like you're adding each clip as a title in MyDVD.

 

What is the total duration (in time) of the 35 clips? You should combine all the clips using Videowave (Edit Vide Advanced). Then save that project (it will have a suffix dmsm when saved as a Videowave project). Then open MyDVD and select that project to be a title in a DVD. Let me see if I can find a tutorial poste din the forum that will provide the details of creating DVD. I will be back (unless another member provides the details).

 

This is from a previous version but steps should be parallel:

I would estimate the video clips total no more than 45 minutes. Some are very short (less than a minute). A tutorial would be great! Thank you!
