Dvd intro scenes?

Was wondering what all you pros use for a program to make your snazzy intro scenes on your dvds. Just saw taperguys newest BTW everyones explanations on vegas on this site are stellar. Just finished authoring my first dvd with no hassle whatsoever. Thanks a lot. Especially Saltman

The bonnaroo one I did was done with a program called Swish Max. It is a flash animator. It is not very hard to use and has some really neat functions. The bonnaroo one was a series of still photos with various transitions between them. That program exports out .swf files that can be dropped right into Vegas. I use vegas to save them as a mpg, which can be used in DVD Architect. You might be able to import .swf files straight into DVD Architect but I have never tried. If you want some more info on that program I can help you out. It is a lot like Vegas.

Re: adding chapter (song) markers in sony vegas..

same way as DVDA. you hit the "m" button and name it there. When you render in vegas check the box that says something about retaining chapter marks.... It's at the bottom of the dialog box.

Best app for sync'ing video?

I have a video of my band with horrible audio and a seperate audio recording which is a good (WAV format on my HD). I'd like to combine these two and make one great DVD. I have a mac and have final cut pro as well as soundtrack. (I don't know much about these apps)

The file is a direct transfer from a DV camera. It 45 minutes and the AVI file is 10gb!!!

Any help would be appreciated befoe i dig into this tomorrow night via the trial and error method.

Re: Best app for sync'ing video?

I'd suggest extracting the audio, 10 GB is a pain in the ass to edit. Personally I prefer synching with Samplitude (multitrack hd recording app), cause its graphic style makes synching quite easy. Sometimes, when the two audio sources aren't quite in synch and some cutting needs to be done, Samplitude is killer.

You could also make a DVD out of your AVI file as if the audio was perfect, then from the finished DVD, de-mux the audio, resynch it with the new source, then re-mux it. Then you'd have your 10 GB AVI off the table and are able to work with handy files. As the video remains untouched when you mux, this is probably the way for you to go.

Re: Best app for sync'ing video?

I actually took th AVI file into FCP, tossed the bad audio and brought in the new audio. I was able to move it side to side and line it up. I exported another AVI file and brought it into toast and burned a DVD. I'll watch it tonight and see how it went.

I'll check out Samplitude. What is mux?

Also, now that I have the audio in place, what is a good application to do the tracking and titles?

Re: Best app for sync'ing video?

De-Muxing is separating audio and video streams of a DVD, re-muxing is joining them back together. Great if you get a DVD and a better audio source and want to join them in no time. Also no re-encoding involved, so no change in video quality.

Re: Best app for sync'ing video?

I think you will find the demuxed mpeg2 file will be harder to work with than the uncompressed .avi. Atleast it is on a pc. I work with 20-30GB avi files every day and they don't cause any problems. When you bring a mpeg2 into Vegas ( a pc program ) it is slow and jerky. The final product isn't. But it is a pain while you are editing.

Anyway it sounds like you are on the right track. I thought there was another program people were using with macs to render. I forget the name now.

I also think you will find that if the video and audio were both digitally which DV is of course.... it will be a cakewalk to synch it. You will probably not need to stretch or cut, etc...
