rendering videos for multimedia dvd-rom
on Nov 11, 2015 at 7:32:23 pm

good evening to all,

please, i wish to have your kind advice and/or your suggestion for rendering videos for multimedia dvd-rom

i am trying to close a deal for a small production of multimedia dvd-rom's for a local charity club

i have to tell that it was my idea the production of a multimedia dvd-rom since there is a large number of videos and audio files

some of the videos have to be downloaded from vimeo and youtube and have to be converted first in order to be rendered in vegas

the audio files are mp3 and wave

i am thinking to render those videos in windows media format v.8 or v.9 (wmv) with 3 mpbs with audio of 320 kbps

also, the audio files have to first converted in wave and then to be encoded as mp3 files @ 320 kbps cbr

the videos are documentaries, social events of the club, lectures, seminars and the audio files are also lectures as well

my multimedia dvd-rom will be something like those dvd's that are bundle with many magazines (pc format, computer & music, keyboard magazine)

my other problem is to find a multimedia program to create my dvd-rom

i know only director and authorware for multimedia creation but i am afraid to say that both are out of my budget

many thanks in advance

ConvertXtoDVD is the best DVD Authoring software around, and very affordable.

I believe you need to select your multimedia authoring software first and then render to the format that the software requires. This may be different for each authoring program.

I've never created a multimedia dvd and in 2015 I have no idea why anyone would want to with most people using computers and tablets that don't even have dvd drives anymore. That's a technology from a by-gone era.

good afternoon to all,

dear john i thank you for your kind reply

the only reason i want to produce dvd-rom is because i cannot find a way to put all those videos and audio files on a single dvd (as dvd movie)

if i produce a multimedia dvd-rom then all those videos and files could be easily fit on a single dvd (4.3 gb)

as for the multimedia authoring software i have to buy i will try to find through ebay authorware or director mx 2004 (old versions - cheap software)

So the local charity who you are bidding the work for knows this is not a regular DVD movie but rather a multimedia DVD ROM that requires a Windows computer to play back? That's all I'm pointing out. If people are expecting to play this back on their TV sets they are in for a surprise.

by-gone era or not, many a clients still request this dated medium.
And DVD Rom's still have their Archival purpose and place!

I'm not talking about a regular DVD. I'm taking about a Multimedia DVD. I've never had anyone ask for a multimedia DVD which can only be played in Window computers ever in the 15 years that I've been editing video.

good afternoon dear john and i thank you for your kind reply

yes, you have right

it will be a windows or macintosh compatible dvd-rom

the easiest way is to just burn a data dvd with all the videos and audio but i prefer the structure of the dvd-rom

any ideas of the final rendering videos

thanks in advance

hi again dear john ... and sorry for my come back

i forgot to tell you that i have found through google while i was searching for authoring multimedia the follow very old magazine

https://books.google.com.cy/books?id=K8IS2A_xDLUC&pg=PA8&lpg=PA8&dq=Multime...

unfortunately i couldn't be able to download tha magazine even with some google magazine download utilities

the magazine have a very interesting review of all the major multimedia authoring programs

it would really great i could find any of those old multimedia authoring programs through ebay or as free download (since those programs are too old) but nothing was found till now

i thanking you very much

[kathreen anachioti] "the magazine have a very interesting review of all the major multimedia authoring programs"
That magazine is 20 years old. I doubt you could get any of those programs to even run on a modern computer.

Like I said... people don't make these anymore. I really don't know how you could accomplish this. I would make a normal DVD with a menu.

The closest I have seen this being done was a normally authored DVD (with a bit of room to spare) then we added a folder for JPG's at the highest level. The DVD still played, but the images were only viewable on a PC. That's what the client wanted, so that's what we gave them :-)

My system specs: Intel i7 970, GTX570, 12GB RAM, ASUS P6T, Vegas Pro 12 (x64), Windows 7 x64 Ultimate, Vegas Production Assistant 1.0, VASST Ultimate S Pro 4.1, Neat Video Pro 2.6

Did you try the program i recommended to you?
You can quickly download the trial and use it quite easily to create your DVD.
Its already set up to some degree, You can drag your video in it and burn same
time with good results, and you fidget around from there!

hi dear steve and sorry for the delay in thanking you for your reply

yes, i have checked the link you have gave me but i am looking for something else

please, let me explain that my problem is not to convert my videos but to create a dvd-rom with video and audio files (dvd-rom like those of computer and music magazine)

i have been told by a friend to try adobe's flash

with flash i can create a welcome screen, the menus i need but i am afraid to say that flash is too expensive for me

a friend advice me for mediator pro or adobe director

if i cannot find the program i need i will try to create just a data dvd with all the videos i have to include

i am thinking to render those videos as windows media video of 3m sony vegas pro 8 template just to keep the size small

thanks

Right now, for you, a Data DVD sounds like your best option then, Cause
You are being pointed to go into some dark places that you've mentioned here
in this post, lol

Here is a video that will give you some Ideas







But to tell you the truth, I think the project your doing would be better done on Pinnacle Studio, as setting up a DVD WITH Multiple menus is much easier to do than it with Vegas. I have both Programs running on my computer. If your just putting the files on the timeline and not doing a whole lot of video editing and addons to the file on the timeline, that is the way I would go

Been There, Done That, Probably More Than Once!
