Rendering and Burning to DVD Issues
on Jan 22, 2010 at 1:05:57 pm

This is my first time using AfterEffects or any video software for that matter. I made a 20 minute picture slideshow with text animation, some picture effects, and audio. I was able to render it to a .mov format, but I would like to be able to burn it to a DVD and have it actually be readable on a DVD player or Xbox 360.

I had success with this by converting my .mov with Squeeze 6 on a trial basis to an NTSC DVD format which indeed did play on my Xbox, but because I only have a trial, there's a big watermark logo in the background of the entire show.

I've tried two other programs to convert my .mov to an MPEG format, but one was only recognized as a mixed media disc on my xbox and the other wasn't recognized at all. I noticed that the file from Squeeze 6 has a .m2v file name, while the two others that don't work had something different.

Does anyone know of any other freeware I could use to covernt my .mov to .m2v or another format that should work for a DVD player? I've tried searching for information on .m2v file formats, but I can't find hardly anything. I don't know why that is.

Thanks for your help!

-Jeff

If your computer is a Mac, you can use iDVD. If your computer is a PC, I wouldn't know...Windows Movie Maker?

Did you Google "MOV to MPEG-2" "windows", or "MOV to DVD" "Windows" ... you get the idea ....

The MPEG-2 DVD NTSC format I already had was actually good. My issue was I was burning it straight to the DVD without using a DVD authoring program. Why must this stuff be so complicated? haha

[Jeff Price] "Why must this stuff be so complicated?"

Read Dave's post in this thread for a good explanation.

Basically because working in a program like AE is not intended for the average user. This is professional-level stuff. To us, the idea of using a DVD authoring program to make a DVD is not "complicated" it's "the basics." Speaking of the basics, in my post in that thread I link to a great resource for folks who are starting in AE. Check it out.
