    AVI Format

    Re: icons - I created a few folders on the desktop that contain related icons. Good comprimise? Still looking for info on this: Does using DVDShrink in the setup path affect final DVD quality? Path: AVI / DivxtoDVD / Video_TS / DVDShrink (to review video and add AC3 audio) / IMGBurn / DVD Disc From reading this forum, I think video jumps / blotches noticed earlier were due to poor media and possibly to the DVD player hooked up to a VCR as well as TV.

    Good info above. DvdShrink has an Ac3 audio checkbox. If I run Video_TS files made by DivxtoDVD through DVDShrink and then burn to disc with IMGBurn am I getting Ac3 quality audio? I know I can also burn direct from Video_TS to IMGBurn to DVD disc. Does using DVDShrink in the setup matter in final DVD quality? AVI / DivxtoDVD / Video_TS / DVDShrink / IMGBurn / DVD Disc Note: I like the video preview feature when I import the Video_TS files into DVDShrink before burning to IMGBurn / DVD disc. BTW: DivxtoDVD trial (X2D) video seems brighter than Divxto DVD (Free). Other points: with X2D it's possible to control convert time/quality and dedication of CPU to convert process. Comparing X2D vs WinAVIVideoConverter - toss up / but people seem to say X2d has more quality and less pblms. Icons? I have both 19" screens full with icons!!!!!!!!!!! Time to get lean!!! Brewer

    Hey!!!!!! Amazing. Shamus Thanks!!!!!!! And Thanks to Lightning UK for a great IMGBurn!!!!! How do you compare .avi to VIDEO_TS shrink reduction using ConvertXtoDVD vs DVD Shrink? Steps I used to make DVD from .avi: 1. ConvertXtoDVD reduced 18gigs of .avi to 2.6 gig VIDEO_TS file 2. DVD Shrink / IMGBurn made a 2.48 gig ISO file 3. IMGBurn (4X) made DVD+R Used 4X burn rate to maintain quality. My Sony DRU810 DVD burner burns max 16X. There are chapter points in ConvertXtoDVD!! BTW tried making MPEG-2 files with TMPEGEnc - quality was poor from my .avi master file. The DVD I made with the steps above plays when you open WinDVD software, and plays in WMP as well. A few places I notices a slight jerk in motion, but it could easily be my PIII CPU / 512 Rambus ram ancient beast taking a stress leak. Other than that the DVD sound is excellent and picture quality almost equal to the major studios. Since the source is an indie film, it's very good picture, but not Hollywood. Yet!!! This is the best place on the net!!! Lots of good links on members posts.

    Hey!!!!!!! I was using the clip with the wrong audio source!!!! When I used the band clip with the music CD added directly into the movie via Adobe Premire 6.5 timeline vs live recording through the camcorder all worked great: VSO DivxToDVD (Free) did a great job making VIDEO_TS files. DVD Shrink 3.2 imported these files and did its thing. Can I add chapters to the video w/ DVD Shrink / IMGBurn? Is this possible?

    Used VSO DivxToDVD to make an iso of a short test band scene AVI source. Mounted iso in Daemon Tools - sound was delayed / shrill.

    18 gigs? Indie film edited with Adobe Pro 6.5. Timeline exported to .avi (1hour 22min long film). People involved want a DVD of it to send others to show their work. I can use Nero 6 to make std quality DVD MPEG2. I just wonder if that's good enough? Nero says to use DVD 9 - whioch I don't have here now (Dual layer DVD). Shrinking then burning ISO to disk, I also wonder if the result looks just like DVD movies from "major" studios. IMGBurn handles dual layer DVDs, right? Even shrunk by DVD Shrink to fit 1 DVD, you can ask DVd Shrink to max quality before burn. MPEG2 export from Adobe Pro 6.5 timeline results in jerky motion DVD. Sonic / My DVD - can't read the .avi file!! Nero 6 can work, but if I can get great quality, I'll go for that. Thanks for the link to classic IMGBurn. I'd need to go VOBs to an ISO to DVD shrink to IMGBurn. Still deciding what to do...........

    Does it make sense to convert a 18 gig .AVI to ISO, then use DVD Shrink to fit the ISO to DVD, with final burn to DVD using IMGBurn? Reason: 18 gig AVI is an indie film master I just finished audio/video post. Looking to make DVDs for people involved. DVD Shrink / IMG burn seems to me a better way to goto DVD than MPEGII considering data loss and how the final result will be. What software should I use to do AVI to ISO?
