MF4: Create DVD from Hauppauge TV Card

Postby sjj1805 » Wed Feb 15, 2006 3:24 pm

Tutorial: Create a DVD from a Hauppauge TV Card
OK the competition is over but that does not mean we should all stop trying to be helpful to each other.
A fellow member has requested information regarding how to record and then produce a DVD from the Hauppauge TV Card with DVD Movie Factory.
This member has version 3SE, However I only have Version 4 and so I will detail two methods of capture.
One is using DVDMF4, the other is to use WinTV2000 which is the software used with the Hauppauge TV Card.

DVDMF4.
If you have not already done so go to the following location and download and install the following:-
http://www.ulead.com/tech/dmf/dmf_ftp.htm
1. DVD MovieFactory 4.0 Update Pack Build 4.04
2. DVD MovieFactory 4 Hauppauge devices support pack ( 6 in 1)

(Make sure you select the correct one for your model of TV card)

Now open Ulead DVD MovieFactory 4.0 and start a new DVD project
Image
then Add Media
Image

Click Advanced Settings

Image
Capture properties will bring up a box, Make sure you select Antenna or cable as appropriate.
Image

Check the capture plug in has selected your Hauppauge Device
Image

Format should be MPEG (Hauppauge cards do not capture in AVI)
Now choose where to save your capture to and press the capture icon.
Image

If you have an earlier version of DMF or for some other reason are unable to capture with it, then use WinTV2000
Image

Quality levels depend upon how much you want to squeeze onto the DVD.
Standard play = Bit rate 6400, Peak 8000 Variable � approx 1 hour
Long Play = Bit rate 4800, Peak 6200 Variable � approx 1.5 hours
Extra Long Play = Bit rate 3000, Peak 4400 Variable � approx 2 hours
Image
Now you just need to press the two highlighted record buttons.

After capture you will then need to open DMF and this time select the Add Video Files Button
Image

Next step is to click the cog wheel at the bottom left of the screen to bring up a pop up dialog box. Here you need to make sure that Do Not convert compliant MPEG files is selected.

It should now be simple enough to work out how to progress from this point.
You can add/edit chapter if required. Selecting next brings you a several Menu Templates to choose from


Image

Double click any writing you wish to alter and a pop up box will appear
Image

Press [next] twice to bring up the burn page. Here you can give the DVD a Title and choose to record to disc, Hard Drive Folder or create an image file.
Different users have their own preferences at this point, mine is to burn to a Hard Drive Folder where I can now view the completed DVD with PowerDVD as a final check before burning it to a DVD disc.

For further information concerning the DVD authoring stage please view:
Authoring a DVD although written for VideoStudio 9/10 the procedure is almost identical in MovieFactory 4/5

Creating DVD from MPG

Many thanks, looks like the help I need.

However, I couldn't find Build 4.03, but did download Build 4.04.

You show a screen and say to start a new project, but when I start MovieFactory 4.0, I cannot fathom how to "start a new project" or get the screen you show. Could you help me more?

Again, many thanks.

Kadish
I have changed the build number, thank you.
Did you start Movie Factory 4
from Ulead DVD MovieFactory 4.0 Launcher
or Ulead DVD MovieFactory 4.0 (in the start folder DVD Authoring)
I use the second one.

(C:\Program Files\Ulead Systems\Ulead DVD MovieFactory 4.0 Disc Creator\Ulead DVD MovieFactory 4.0\DVDMF.exe)

Another reason you may not see that first screenshot is that there are several versions of Movie Factory 4. I have the Disc Creator Edition.

Thank you

thanks for the nice tutorial.
the part about bit rates and quality is especially helpful.
i may decide to buy the movie factory 4 version or rather get the upgrade.

Build pack 4.04 cannot find MovieFactory

Postby bayman2 » Mon Mar 19, 2007 9:36 am

Your tutorial is just what I need, but when I try installing the MovieFactory Build pack 4.04 it tells me it cannot find MovieFactory installed on my computer. How can I point the executable at MovieFactory?

Thanks

Many thanks
