vbimport

#1

hmm. i got the software super dvd creator, it is good so far. i authored 1 movie, and it only up to 1.7 gig, so i want to add to have 2 movies on a 1 4.7 gig dvd was it possible? btw im making a dvd playable to a standalone dvd player…

I’m not sure Super is a good choice for the job…I’d use Avidemux to join both avi’s…Try with FAVC, DVDFlick, ConvertxtoDVD if you want DVD output…
BTW,is that the free Super or another tool “Super DVD Creator” ?


#3

it is another tool it was not free, http://www.super-dvd-creator.com-http.com/features.html. is der a free super dvd creator? wat is favc? i didnt like dvd flick very slow converting process T_T

Load all your files to Supper DVD creator. Make menu to choose what you want to ply and burn disc.
If they are both 1.7GB than they are fine for DVD5. No further compression required.

Yeah I was of course commenting on the free Super,though Ive used it from time to time…Don’t know the other Super DVD Creator so can’t comment…Frankly I’m a little skeptical of anything with “Super” in the title…:wink:
Cheers!..

@ B2kevin,
FAVC is a very good free All-in-One converter…IMO, better than CX2DVD,but slower again, JMHO… I have both and I prefer FAVC since it uses HCEncoder or Quenc for encoding…But to each their own…

@tonee
does FAVC can customize menus? i mean can i put my ideal background for it? how bout d video quality? is der a selection, like high, medium and low? can i put mp3 as a music background? can i create chapters? sorry for many questions. im just curious. :slight_smile:

You can set your own image as the background in your menu using FAVC…I think it calls for a jpg. There are three settings for preset video quality, though you can adjust the bitrate manually also. Chapters are created automatically, but you can adjust the number of them by setting the interval at which they occur. You cannot set their position manually.


#12

My idea of a good converter is it’s abilty to create a good quality output,not it’s abilty to create good quality menus…
Having said that FAVC produces a simple menu that can be customized somewhat, as stated above…But again I’m for great quality video more so than creating great looking menus…

so it means that favc cant put mp3 as a background song?
what does the quality of the converted video on favc? same as on ur pc?

You can combine as many complete DVD to one, as you want. They all can have their own menu, but you will need a Master menu from which you can choose either movie with its own menu.

To your last post. MP3 is not DVD compliant audio format. It is only for DivX(mpeg4).

@cduncle

is there a master menu creator? if im ryt the menus are related to ifo and bup files?

You’ll need a more capable authoring program if you want to make menus with submenus. Look up GUIForDVDAuthor (free) over at videohelp.com and for a complex menu, look at this guide:
http://download.videohelp.com/gfd/GUI_DVDauthor_eng_07.htm

TMPGencAuthor 3 is about $90, includes an encoder and divx authoring capability as well. It can make more complex menus for you, though you will have to put up with periodic checks to make sure you aren’t a thief (requires internet connection in other words).

Another option is to buy DVDLab Pro. It is ~$250 these days. There is a free trial for the program if you want to try it out. It is much easier to use in my opinion. The help file included with the trial is excellent. May be more than you need, since this program is at the quasi-pro level.
