This is my 1st post here…
I need some desperate help! Let me give you some info on what I’m trying to do and then explain what problems I’m running into. I have created a photo montage with MAGIX Movies on CD & DVD 4.0. I’ve burned several copies onto DVD+R discs and plan to give it to family members.
These are the problems I’ve ran into:
I didn’t put a menu on it as MAGIX doesn’t have templates that appealed to me nor did they give much option in modifying the templates. So I just left it without menu. So far I can view it just fine on my DVD player (cheapy brand), my father cannot view his and my sister can view hers, but the picture jumps. I’ve been told that one possible cause could be that it doesn’t have a menu is why my father wasn’t able to view it at all. Disc type could be the reason my sister couldn’t view hers.
Now that I’ve read up more on disc types and what is more compatible I would like to burn this as a DVD-ROM so no matter who I give it to they can view it, but MAGIX doesn’t give that option. When I try to export this project from MAGIX to AVI or MPEG so I can upload it into another software such as Pinnacle Studio Plus 10.5 that will give me more options the quality is poor.
Pinnacle Studio Plus 10.5 has better options on menus that I would like to add to this montage, but I can’t get a good quality avi or mpeg to use.
Can I copy the DVD’s that I’ve already burned, work with them in another software and bypass MAGIX altogether and still get good quality images? What software is recommended to use to copy a created DVD? What is recommended to burn as DVD-ROM?
I just got Pinnacle Studio Plus 10.5 as a Christmas gift that I should be able to create future montages with and have more options on burning to DVD, but I’m still learning the program. I spent months working with MAGIX Movies to CD & DVD 4.0 to create this photo montage and don’t want to nor have time to redo the whole thing in Pinnacle SP 10.5. We are traveling this coming weekend for our family Christmas and this montage was suppose to be gifts, so if you can really help me I would be so grateful!
