Hey, Walt... Split From Digital Files

Question

Hey, Walt...looks like you're the man with all the answers! So here's a question for you: Since you point out that it is actually preferred to capture onto a hard drive first--and then move to a DVD (if that's the desired destination), what format does the program capture in? AVI? MOV? Some other format? What say you?

 

Thx!

Terry

I'm not Walt but the basic answer is that EVD 3 Captures in mpeg2 format and that cannot be changed...

 

You also asked, "...and then move to a DVD..."

 

There are 2 ways to do that!

 

As a Data DVD - files on a disc, playable on some DVD/BD Players.

 

As a DVD Movie - playable on all DVD/BD Players but not readily usable as individual files.

 

Both can be done in the software by choosing the Export option of Archive vs DVD ;)

I'm not Walt but you seem to be in a hurry to get the answer to your question. The capture does really matter, it is the output. Any DVD that plays on a standard DVD player must be mpg2. Discs must be authored so just putting a video file on a disc will not allow it to be played except perhaps on a computer and some TV that will play those types of file.

 

If you go directly to DVD, then the file must be captured or converted to mpg2 or it wouldn't work.

 

Apparently you do not have the program so the following my give you some ideas about options. Remember you are capturing from an analog source so no HD file formats.

Thanks, Jim and "sknis"! Actually, I do have the program...just hadn't installed it yet, and because I work with Premiere Pro, I was merely alluding to formats I'm familiar with. I was mostly concerned about "editability" (not sure that's really a word :) ) of the converted files in Premiere. Thanks again to you both!

 

Cheers,

Terry
