I have a question. I am using Final Cut Express. I figured out how to capture the video from the DV tape to my HD. Now what steps do I need to take to produce the VIDEO_TS files (vob and fob files)?

Re: Final Cut users

1. Edit your video (cut out the bits you don't want) using Final Cut
2. Encode your video within Final Cut to MPG-2 . Use this bitrate calculator to determine the min/avg/max video bitrate. http://dvd-hq.info/bitrate_calculator.php
3. Encode your audio to AC3 or leave as PCM within Final Cut
4. Import your audio and video files into an authoring application like DVD Studio Pro
5. Create a menu and chapter points in your authoring application
6. Once you've finished, your authoring program will create a video_ts folder containing .vob, .ifo and .bup files

Re: Final Cut users

Shawn, even if you don't have external audio to synch with, don't waste your time using crappy ac3. You can fit an hour's worth of footage on a single layer with 8200 kbs VBR & LPCM audio.

MAKE sure ALL your settings are correct when capturing, rendering, & authoring (ie, if it was shot in widescreen, 16:9 for the capture & render. If it was shot in full screen, 4:3 for both)

Re: Final Cut users

gonna be hard to synch the aud on this new monsoon tape. I got about the last 25 minutes of the 1st set. Then I didnt change tapes at set break. Just stopped the recording. Then I had to put a new tape in a little more than half way through the second set.

hey, Im new at this

also, you might find some useful info at Ken Stone's site, don't think he cover FCExpress but it ain't much different than FCP5 or 6 as far as basic functions go...i always recommend new editors check out some of his tutorials :
