Help with turning video clips on to DVDs

Can any one help me?

I have various video clips mostly in mp4 format and I now have ulead video studio version 11 and I can join the clips to make a continous movie.

What I can't seem to do is find the right fomat to save the movie and burn it on to a blank DVD disc (DVD-R) so that I can stick it in my DVD player attached to the telly and watch my movie on the telly.

Anyone know how to do it?

Peter - I have Ulead Version 9 and I can do this, so it must be there on version 11.

On Version 9, you do all the editing on the video(s) and then go TOOLS, CREATE DISC and follow that through to the end.

However, I have found that ULEAD doesnt always burn the DVD correctly doing this - so at the last step above, I often create the image files on the hard drive and then burn them to a DVD later using the ULEAD VCD/DVD burner. (you will find this via START PROGRAMS etc etc).

Although I do not use ulead I would think it is simple to do.

If you find the button to create DVD it should produce the DVD folders (vidoe_TS and audio_TS) on to your hard drive. You should be able to make it do this by selecting 'create folders' rather than 'burn disc'.

You can then burn to a disc whenever you want using Ulead or, my preferance, Nero. In nero selct New, DVD, DVD Video, Make sure the left payne is in the video_TS folder then find you newly created dvd on your hard drive in the right payne. goto the video_TS folder and drag all the files (.VOB, .IFO etc) to the left payne and then burn the disc.

Burning at a slow speed (4x or 8x) will often get better results.

Another way would be to use something like WIN AVI, that will take your joined up video file (mpeg, avi etc) and produce a disc, simple but effective.

If it is in MP4 format, you should be able to find an assortment of apps that will convert the file to DVD. May take a little bit of internet searching but should be worth the effort.

Also have a look at afterdawn.com/ and sourceforge.net

I have used this bit of kit in the past with reasonable results.

However I have found whichever bit of software I'm using, that once you start converting video clips to different formats you can get problems with lip synch.

Biggles - there are no problems with lip-sync and such with Ulead. Its excellent.

Yay!

Thanks Guys! I found the bit on Ulead you meant and it worked a treat!

I downloaded a trial version and there is no help files with it so I am slowly getting to grips with what it can do!

Well as I said, I only have V9 (although its a full version). I think its a great product.

The only complaints I would make are that the interface is a bit odd - its not really intuitive.

Plus it does some odd things when you delete frames and so on - especially when you have transitions between frames. However maybe these are improved on V11.

Good luck. Glad you got it to work.
