Need Simple Process to go from AVI to VOB to DVD

Recommended Posts

I've just purchased a Samsung dvd-r reader/writer for my netbook. Rather than install the bloated Nero Essentials (at considerably extra cost) I have heard that imgBurn is a good alternative. So I've downloaded it to my netbook and installed it OK.

 

So here's my problem. On my laptop I have InterVideo. I import an avi file into that, then choose burn video and it makes a full video dvd, i.e with \Video_TS folder etc., and VOB file etc., in just a couple of clicks.

 

But with imgBurn it does not seem to be so straight forward. I have tried to import the avi file into imgBurn, and then managed to convert it to an iso file still on the hard disk. But what now? How do I use imgBurn to create the \Video_TS folders etc., and then reformat / export the iso file as a vob file etc. to the dvd-r disk in the writer?

 

Thank you

 

P.S. I tried to do a search for 'avi' in the FAQ and Help files - as suggested - but this failed due to 'avi' being only three letters. So its not possible to search by three letter format codes!!

ImgBurn burns as-is, i.e. it doesn't convert anything.

 

For that you should use DVD Flick (free), ConvertXtoDVD (paid) or similar software.

When you say InterVideo, are you refering to WinDVD Creator?

 

If you finaly have the Video_TS folder created, use this Guide to burn it to disc using ImgBurn.

InterVideo was pre-installed when I bought my Toshiba Qosmio laptop. I believe that it is now called WinDVD - however I still use it as InterVideo. I can import an avi file into it. Put this on the timeline. Maybe edit it, or add menus, captions, fade, etc., or do no edits at all. Then it outputs everything directly to a dvd-r during which it creates the \Video_TS folder, vob files, etc., i.e. it creates a fully playable dvd. It has none of the messing around of ingBurn. BUT I can't transfer my copy of InterVideo from my laptop to my netbook since I don't have the installation disks 'cos it was pre-installed on the former.

Refer to post # 2.

 

ImgBurn does not convert, it burns what you give it.

 

Maybe I don't understand your post :blink:
