Re: Final cut pro, root menu?

I known absolutely nothing about DVD authoring, but I'm guessing that maybe your problem has something to do with the autorun.inf file or the DVD equivilent. Maybe when you insert the DVD, the player is not reading that file, but when you click the title button, it reads the file correctly. Check Final Cut Pro settings for something similar to making an "autorun CD" when burning CDs.

Sorry if I'm way off base. I'm just assuming DVDs work in a similar fashion as autorun CDs, in that there is a file that is read when the disc is inserted and that file (autorun.inf) points to the first file that is to be run (ex. setup.exe) (or played - the VOB? file?).

Re: Final cut pro, root menu?

i'm a bit confused walter, you say you authored the DVD with FCP? to the best of my knowlege, i didn't think FCP would create menus or author to DVD, or atleast i've never used it for such...you need DVD Studio Pro for that [or one of the other dvdauthoring programs]...

FCP will export in a few different "formats", maybe you exported in mpeg2 using Compressor and then burned? lets us know a few more details, and maybe i can help more?

After the .avi to dvd conversion. How do I...

... burn multiple conversions to one dvd?

I'm using VSO Divx to DVD converter and it's great. What I've got is smaller video_ts folders that I could fit multiples of on to one dvd and then view on my tv. The problem is each conversion creates its own video_ts folder with this included:

VIDEO_TS.BUP
VIDEO_TS.IFO
VTS_01_0.BUP
VTS_01_0.IFO
VTS_01_1.VOB

Obviously , if I tried to drag the next converted video into Nero 6, it would overwrite the previous files already there.

Anyone know how to create a tracklisting (not sure of the correct terminology) of sorts to add more of the conversions to one burn session? Each conversion is about 850 mb, so I can burn 4-5 on each DVD.

I tried renaming the .vob files, but that didn't work. I had left the first set of VIDEO_TS.BUP and VIDEO_TS.IFO files in place. I just added the remaining three after I renamed the numbers to consecutive.

Re: After the .avi to dvd conversion. How do I...

I think what you want to do is create a menu and then each video would be an entry in that menu, but I have no idea how it would be done. I know nothing about DVD authoring.

There are a few good sites that would probably be able to offer specific help. I know someone posted a couple of them somewhere on this board. Check out the most recent 3 or 4 threads' titles asking for DVD help and see if you can find them or maybe search for "authoring". I'm pretty sure I made a post using that term in one of the threads that mentioned the sites.

EDIT: Here ya go. Check out these links:

Re: After the .avi to dvd conversion. How do I...

So it might be called authoring. See, that's the problem with searches. I looked through 12 pages of 'dvd' search returns and didn't see anything relating to this. Maybe authoring is where the info is at.

Re: After the .avi to dvd conversion. How do I...

So, how does this look? I followed the video structure over at videohelp.com, and I think it's correct. I received zero warnings when dragging the consecutive .vob, .ifo, and .bup files over while NOT dragging over their respective video_ts files.

Re: After the .avi to dvd conversion. How do I...

no you need use a dvd authoring program to and add all the different videos into one project which will then create a new video_ts folder with all the videos in. TMPGEnc DVD Author 1.6 is easy and is free for 30 days

Just a quick note/question. Will TMPEnc allow burning? I know a lot of trials/demos for burning software will allow most or all functions except burning.

Re: Final cut pro, root menu?

next time you start a project click on the disc in the upper left
rename it to whatever you want and select "menu" as the defualt jump to when started/start up action

you can also click connections and see what it set to do what when you are done to double check all buttons and menus do what you want
rather it be a loop, timeout, jump to, end jump

Re: After the .avi to dvd conversion. How do I...

I use DVD Santa for this type of thing,eg: converting 2 TV episodes from AVI to VOB to put on one disc,all you do is choose both the AVIs when you choose the media you want to create a DVD of and it'll add them both into the VOB etc
It's a simple easy to use prog
PM me if you're interested but can't find the prog
