I’m looking for the best way to convert low-quality 150Kbps ‘Real’ video clips (.rm) and put them on DVD.
I currently use SUPER which provides many ways to encode the video and a lot of control over the output, but it is tough to get it onto DVD. SUPER can output directly to VOB fiels. Then, a program called IFOEdit lets me create IFO files for one VOB file (but I don’t know how to get other VOB files to be treated as seperate chapters). From there, I can just burn the files with NERO Burning ROM.
If I use NERO Vision, it will always transcode the video fiels before burning, which decreases quality significantly. Maybe this is because it is a ‘transcoder,’ not a true encoder.
Ideally, I should only encode once. But would the quality suffer much if I encoded to high bitrate before reencoding before burn? Is there a better program or a better way to do this?
