Question Making a DVD with chapters

Hello everyone, I searched my hard drive and I found a lot of bootlegs shows in .mpg and .avi files, some have a really nice quality! I'd like to make DVDs of them to eventually trade them here and with other mail traders, I wanna start a Bootleg collection.

Maybe this was already asked, if so pardon me.

What would be the best program to create the DVDs with full menus and chapters?

I have Nero but it don't seem to be the best for creating such DVDs..

Thanks!

TMPGENC DVD AUTHOR 3 will do the thing. I converted a 60 minutes video file in 1 hour & a half & quality was really good for this kind of job.

I'd first check if some of the shows/clips you have are already circulated on DVDs. Waste of time and money if there are better or same quality versions available - info: http://db.etree.org/bs.php

I'm surprised no one has told you that your mpeg and avi files are lossy, so even if you make DVDs from them you would not be able to share them here.

You can certainly make them for your own enjoyment though.

There are a few quality encoders you can get, like TMPGEnc Express, it does a very good job, Canopus Procoder, more expensive, around $600, Sony Vegas, same price range, and CCE, the best in the market at about $2K.

Vegas and Canopus are the only two that will do framerate conversions, 25 FPS to 29.97, CCE can also do it if you know how to use avisynth.

For DVD authoring, there are many programs you can get, DVD Lab Pro is one, I use Tsunami DVD author, it is very user friendly and around $100, you can create motion menus with ease.

If you need step by step instructions, just type your question into google, there are tutorials in sites like videohelp.com

Great! Look where was Einstein. If you wouldn’t tell me I wouldn’t know that!
I test a lot of software so that is why I converted that file.

I should have replied with a quote to Forever Wild's post, not yours.
