Rendering First Project In VMS 10

I am a new user of video editing software. I recently purchased VMS 10 HD Platinum Suite.

I have just about finished my first project of compiling 1950s 8mm film events that were digitally converted to DVAVI format. I have added voice-overs and music sound tracks.

My question is: What is the best quality format to render the project in for DVD distribution to family members? Are there any customized settings in VMS 10 that should be used during the rendering?

Thanks,

Bob

Standard SD DVDs are MPEG2 so that is your option. I'm not exactly sure the options in the Movie Studio version but I thought there was a "Make Movie" type option that would go to DVD Architect.

As an alternate solution, you could render the whole thing do DV-AVI (since that's what you started with) and give that single file to DVD Architect to create the DVD. Then DVD Architect will convert it to MPEG2 for you.

Thanks Edward,

Yes, VMS 10 has a "Make Movie" option, but you can also go the route of "File/Render As" and select rendering options. I do not not know if either of these options will automatically take me into DVD AS 5.0 or not. Guess I will have to try one and see what happens.

What is the advantage of rendering to a DVAVI format prior to going into DVD AS? Do we gain something over rendering directly to MPEG2 from VMS?

The only thing you gain by going to DV-AVI is simplicity. Give that to DVD Architect and it will automatically convert it to MPEG2/AC3 without you having to worry about bitrates or other details.

Otherwise, no. Go straight to MPEG2 and AC3 and give those files to DVD Architect. But you need to make sure the bitrates are appropriate for the length of your video.
