Vegas > Architect Help Needed Please!

OK so with the help of some fine folks here and my own research, I figured out how to capture & synch a live concert using Vegas 6. However, thats about as far as I've gotten.

Can anyone point me in the right direction as far as chaptering and authoring? I'll be using architect to author. I assume I put the chapters in while Im still in Vegas, but Im not sure how.

What do I need to do to chapter this thing and get it into architect to author and create a menu? I realize I will be designing the menu art in something like photoshop, but I still need some direction here.

So close... Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Scott

Re: Vegas > Architect Help Needed Please!

Try to search for Saltman's instructions on doing all this. You can make your chapters in Architect. When you drag your main video and audio to the bottom right corner of architect, go just above those streams and right click to add chapters. add your media to the main project. Then right click on the media and it will allow you to add a scene selection menu. Thus using the chapters you have created. Hope this helps, I'm new to this too.

Tivoed video help

I have recently tivoed on highest quality a few great programs. Im in search of anyone who knows much about seeding videos to see what is necesary for the videos i have tivoed and burned to dvd to be able to be ripped and put up here to download as well as other places on line. The programs i have do need editing out of the commercials and could also need a little edditing themselves.
I am trying to get up the following videos:
Pearl Jam storytellers
The Drug Years parts 1,2,3 and 4.
and 2 History channel docs called Hooked: Illegal Drugs and How They Got That Way. One is on Marijuana and the other is called LSD, Ecstacy, and the Raves.

These are just a few of the recent things ive tivoed. If anyone has any knowledge of good ripping and editing programs i may go from there or if anyone has done this with other similar dvrs or like things and wants to help please do.

Thanks for any help/information
Seth

PS once i get this going i hope to add a running thread or poll here so if yall see something coming up ill be sure to tivo it and dont mind doing it for music or programs im not interested in as well.

Re: Tivoed video help

I'm not sure if the best path to getting these files so that you can edit them is by taking the tivo files, burning them and then reripping them.

You might be better off taking the .tivo files (with TivoToGo), and stripping the DRM headers which leaves you with a "normal" mpeg2 file. Manipulating a mpeg2 file will be easier than a ripped DVD burn. There are tons of sites on the Net explaining how to do this -- you're on your own as far as the legality. Some software is even able to manipulate the .tivo files directly.

Lastly at least some of the programs you mentioned (the History Channel docs) are available for sale -- perhaps something you might not want to freely torrent.

Re: Getting films on to PC from VHS

I would guess that if you have a really decent video and soundcard, just hook up the VCR outputs to the cards and hope for the best in A/D conversion.

I'm actually going to transfer a few dozen VHS to DVD in the next few weeks but I'm borrowing my brother's stand-alone DVD burner while he's on vacation because I have crappy video and soundcards in my pc.

Anybody know some good software to edit my files after I convert them to DVD? I plan to try to edit on my pc from the DVD's to make DVD compilations later, i.e. putting all my SRV clips on the same disc etc.

Burning 2 DVD's on a Single Dual Layer Disc

I downloaded 2 DVD boot. I would like to burn it on a single DL disc. The files for each DVD are named the same, i.e. each DVD has a file named "VTS_02_1.VOB" etc.

Can I just re-name the files on DVD 2 to follow in sequence after the ones on DVD 1? Or won't that work unless I re-author the entire thing? I'm guessing that's the case because for one, the menus probably wouldn't work then or something.

Pretty sure you'll have to re-author the whole thing.

Re: Burning 2 DVD's on a Single Dual Layer Disc

you can't simply rename the files.... the ifo bup file etc... wouldn't be correct. I think there is a way to do it though with a specific program. I have never done it but I thought I heard people talk about it.

Question Authoring Questions

Hey All,

I have just converted a VHS>DVD on my stand alone DVD burner, transfered the files to PC everything fine there, but now I want to add new menu and ad chapters etc but need suggestions on easy editor software. One main problem seems to be the lag time I get useing Nero Recode. The lag time is pretty shakey and cumbersum and is making editing longer then it really should be IMO.
I'm running a PIII with a GForce 5200 Video card 512 memory. Not much but all I have now, wondering if I'm just underpowered on this. BTW the videos play smoothly on player, just not in Recode.

Any help welcome.
Kingfish
