Well this is my first post on this type of forum and i'm hoping you can help to resolve this age old problem many have experienced in the past.
I'm trying to convert my SVCD's to DVD-r but am having problems following the procedure i have tried below. Basically the end result is that although the picture and sound come out the image is shifted about a quarter to the right of the screen.
From what i've seen on other posts by Chickenman it looks like i have to re-encode the SVCD mpegs to proper DVD files.
Question : HOW DO I DO THIS?
The procedure i tried initially is as follows :
stripping the streams (splitting the audio from the video) for this u will need TMPGenc.
start her up. Click.
simple de-multiplex is the tab u want.
click input browse.
show it the first mpeg....mpeg 1?
it will output the streams into the same folder.
repeat this for all your mpegs....once all are done you can delete the original mpeg if u want...make sure u delete the right one!!!
changing (S)VCD to DVD.
for this step u will need IFOedit.
open her up...click DVD author.
load the first mpeg streams in...video in the video box...audio into the audio box (the audio stream may not be visible when u click the audio browse button, just select show "all files" in the second drop down box on the file browse box "Files of type:")
show IFOedit the same folder the respective mpegs in to keep things together and neat.
u just need these 2 streams loaded...don't worry about the other boxes. (Unless u want chapters...see ammendment)
click ok and dvd authoring will start.....when finished close ifo edit and reopen and repeat this step for all your mpegs.
when you have done all your mpegs close IFOedit and move onto next step.
Joining the VOBs together.
For this step you will need VOBedit.
right so what we have now essentially is 2 or 3 films each containing only 1 VOB probably only 800mb each (normal VOBs are usually about 1gb)
we need to join them to create 1 film out of those 2-3 VOBS.
First we need to rename the VOBS because they are all named...probably...VTS_01_1
we need to rename the respective VOBS to VTS_01_001, VTS_01_002, VTS_01_003 etc......
Then place them all in the same folder. Create a new one if u want. When u have renamed all the VOBs and placed them in the one folder.....create a new folder called VIDEO_TS somewhere for later...then... open VOBedit.....
click open and show it the first VOB..VTS_01_001
then click Edit-Join clips.....
a file dialog box will pop up asking where u want to ouput the joined VOBs..show it the VIDEO_TS folder u created earlier.
then another box should pop up aking u to choose a VOB id for the first VOB just choose 1 and Ok it.
now joing will comence.....when its finished close VOBedit and move onto next step......
creating new IFO files for the VOBs.
Start IfoEdit, and press the button 'Create IFOs':
Show it the first VOB file.....
Now you will be prompted for a destination directory for the output IFO files. just show it the same folder (VIDEO_TS)
OK it and let it do its business...
when its finished close IFOedit and re-open it.....show it your newly created IFOs in the VIDEO_TS directory.....highlight the VIDEO_TS IFOfile.....press "Get VTS Sectors" Button and keep OKing until its processed all it needs to..(maybe some...maybe none)
Close IFO edit.
Burn the DVDR.
If anyone know's how to reencode the SVCD's to true DVD compliance or a guide detailing how and which software to use, i would be utterly grateful.
Peace ... Dawg
