  • AVI to DVD.

    I'm currently using a pretty basic piece of software called quite imaginatively "AVItoDVD Pro" it does manage to convert most AVI clips to DVD so they can be watched on a standard DVD player.

    My problem is that this bit of software offers me no scaling on the avi clips, so at the moment I can fit 2 400 meg avis on a DVD, but the third JUST drops off the end, if I could scale it down a bit then I could get all 3 one. Also, I'm unable to create animated menus or control where the dvd menu starts (the first clip just "starts")

    I need a piece of software that is able to create dvd titles, menus, if possible scale the AVI to a particular size on the DVD to optimise how many clips I can get on.

    Freeware or otherwise, no preference. Just names of pieces of software that anyone here may have used and found to be featureful and reliable.

    Cheers

          True, MB, but does that also include home movies? How about VHS tapes?

          I, too, am interested. I had been using the DivX conversion program but, quite honestly, it sucks balls. for the fourteen hours it takes to do one movie.

            I'm actually encoding TV shows for my GF. But yes MB you big pirate head, it can be home movies too!

            DVDit Pro is actually very good, the menu creation system is very neat and there are many examples. Quite flexible. it can burn direct to an ISO too which I've not seen before. Going to test the image I did tonight.

                DVDit Pro did a remarkable job. Burning worked jsut fine, can have animated menus / transistions, add music to menus etc.. very good. Problem solved.

                    every time I try to place a movie (no matter the original format or size) into a new project, it tells me the movie is 4 or 5 Gb too big for the DVD. Did you run into this?

                      Yeah, go into project settings and reduce the encoding or it may be that you've configured the size of your media to be say CD-R or the like.

                        I have to go well under the 'poor quality' level to get it to fit...around 3750 or so. I am writing one now...it'll be interesting to see what the quality looks like. These are normal lenght movies, too..not like "Gone With the Wind" or something.

                        Thanks for your reply, btw.

                          No problem.

                          I encoded 3 x Buffy the vampire slayer on 4200BPS and didn't notice much difference in quality. I just burnt some at highest quality this morning and so will check them against each other and let you know.
