Re: Bitrates for DVDs

My conclusion was that, using a DV-compressed original, there was little to be gained by using bitrates higher than 6000 kbit/s CBR for the video. This applies to practical viewing of the DVD on a 32" LCD or a 28" CRT TV from 3 DVD players, as well. This point of view has been disputed by a member ...

I have noticed that when I compress the audio using LCPM then the MAXIMUM bit rate I can use is 8264 where as when I compress the audio using MPEG I can select a much higher bit rate for the video so that goes with what I read in earlier posts. That is because the max combined bitrate for video+aud...

Re: MFDiscCreator6 clip import limitations ?

I'm getting a pop of window telling me that 3.0 has a limitation of importing 99 clips. For the next little while, I have to combined lots of these clips onto one DVD or one DVD-DL. That's probably due to the 99-title limit within the SD DVD specs. Using a video editor (as Steve mentioned) will all...

Could the people who posted the last 2 replies (posted between 2300GMT 1st Mar and 0200GMT 2nd March please post again - or was that you George? Hi John, Those two posts were probably me (they were probably the same/duplicate post I mentioned). I was mentioning that your idea of going with 7,700kbp...

The clip I got the properties from is one of the clips I captured. The equipment I have should be fast enough because I already had it working when I first bought the package? It puzzles the heck out of me. So if the video you captured is uncompressed, you might be experiencing dropped frames durin...

If you add 4 clips to the timeline in VS, they become ONE clip when you take that timeline into the DVD Module. This is different than if you go to the DVD Module, and add the 4 separate clips individually.

You might be trying to capture uncompressed video -- which will be huge, and you might experience dropped frames (if your computer isn't up to the task). Make sure you are capturing DV .AVI (not just .avi uncompressed). Also confirm that you are connecting a firewire cable from camcorder to computer...

Do you have any other options checked? Such as "Play all clips first before menu" :?:

Are you coming from the VS Timeline, or are you going to the DVD Program, and adding separate clips :?:

You would need separate video clips to do what you are describing (in VideoStudio). A single clip with multiple "Chapter marks" will let you jump to a specific "chapter" (or scene), but playback will continue until the end of that Title clip (i.e. video clip).

A while ago, I recorded a cable broadcast (that had CC), and I was able to just transfer the CC to a dvd I authored with MF. I never had to re-render the mpegs, so that probably preserved the line-21 CC. If you are only looking to simply add menus and cut out some scenes, then it might be possible (...

Nice job Devil. Couple things to consider adding: for the IEEE-1394 converters -- perhaps mention to look for dv camcorders with the A-D pass through feature. for alot of VHS tapes, some find it easier to just connect to a DVD Recorder. And then import the resulting mpegs from the dvd recorder unit ...

look at the following link -- there is a pulldown menu with options for different types of menus (smart scenes/ text/ thumbnail -- select a Thumbnail menu)
