Adding audio files to compliant MPEGs
on Aug 1, 2005 at 11:45:28 pm

As my business of transferring 8mm home movies continues on, I've had several requests to add background music to the transfer. Right now I transfer direct to DVD from my pany DV30 via firewire. If I need to customize menus, I use Ulead MovieFactory to rip the MPEGs from the DVD, create my customized menus and then burn the DVD. Ulead has a setting that will not re-encode compliant MPEGs, which I have, so this workflow is very quick and easy. But, as soon as I add music in Ulead, it does re-encode my MPEGs which doesn't look as good as the originals. Has anyone had experience combining compliant MPEGs with music and then burning back to DVD?

Thanx
LS

I do this a lot for home movie transfers.

I go directly from a camera live to the DVD-Recorder though
and skip the tape step. If music is to be added, I record
to DVD-RAM then rip/demux the .m2v video streams.

I bring those into ReelDVD then drop the music right
over it. I made a DVD-ROM full of licensed music with
both pcm .wav files and dolby .ac3 files. I always use
the .ac3 files to keep compatability and playback to
a maximum. Then I build the disc from ReelDVD and burn it. Done.

simply adding audio streams to an mpeg2 video only stream should
not require any re-encoding. I wonder if there is an option somewhere
in ulead to turn it off.

Hi Boris, thanks for the reply. I am basically doing exactly as you are, I am recording live thru my camera to my DVD recorder, not going to tape, onto a DVD-R. I use Ulead MovieFactory to rip the MPEGs from the DVD-R.
I can see how I could add a single music track to each of the ripped MPEGs but what I want to do is add a music track to a series of MPEGs not just a single MPEG. In other words each 50 ft. reel creates an MPEG about 3 minutes or so, I end up with about 15 or 16 MPEGs on a DVD. I want to add about 10 tracks of music to cover all of the MPEGs so the music does not actually begin/end with each individual file.

Thanx
LS

I'm doing what you describe with ReelDVD.
