New to this stuff. I have had trouble making a DVD, I have Roxio and get stuck in the same place everytime. I have Movie maker2 works good and easy but will not play in home DVD.
Got any ideas on good and easy software or any other suggestions.
If you are using Camcorder, the best solution is to download authoring software like Ulead DVD movie factory 2 (about 30 megs for the trial version).
Mentioned program has everything you need in a user friendly (wizard like) enviroment: direct mini DV capturing to hard drive or directly do DVD (!!!), menu creation, insertion of personal images, mp3 audio etc.
But the best thing is that it incorporates REAL TIME MPEG 2 encoding!!! Yes, connect your camcorder to PC and youl get some MPEG 2 in real time, or convert your raw DV materials from disk into MPGEG 2 all the same...
But, if you were wondering about copying retail DVD movies, youll have to grab few programs like Smart ripper, DVD to one, an some burning tool like Nero.
BTW, forget about Windows movie maker; its sheer crap!
