I have tried a number of different ways of doing things including editing with VS8, saving to file and burning with Nero - still has OOS problem. I thought it would be easier to transfer Video to DVD than this. Has anyone had any success with a different software package as I am about fed up with VS8?
As thecoalman suggested, you might try burning to a rewritable before you commit a project to the permanency of a write-once DVD+R.
Based on what I've been reading here, elsewhere and through much trial and error, I've finally found a process that's eliminated the out-of-sync problem I, like so many others, have had using UVS8.
Since I'm capturing analog (cable) TV programs and trimming only the commercial ads from within the video, I'm not truly editing
in the purest sense of the word. Nontheless, I still had sync problems with UVS8, particularly during that last process in Share mode; the process that creates the DVD files and/or burns to DVD.
After literally days of trial and effort, I took the advise of another who posted in an earlier thread on this forum and installed a trial version of VideoReDo which I now use to trim commercial ads and prepare (render) the trimmed MPEG for authoring. While I continue to use UVS8 to author (i.e create chapter points and a title menu) I make sure the option to render (SmartRender) is turned OFF
when I add the video in the Share mode. Since this final UVS8 rendering process is where all the OOS problems seemed to be created, I simply do not want UVS8 to re-render the video.
I know there are other authoring programs I might use, and will probably migrate to one of them in due time. For the moment, I've spent so much time trying to get just one good in-sync burn, I have no urge to purchase and learn another piece of software. But, sadly, I can see my days as a Ulead customer as waning. (I started with UVS6.) Learning about video is neither an easy nor a simple process. But, if I'm going to spend the time, I'd much prefer to devote that time and effort toward learning
rather than trying to figure out how to repair and work around a piece of software.
