DVD creation software

Question: DVD creation software

Hey everyone,

I am trying to look into what software or program would be a good option for a work project that I am trying to help out with.
The goal is to send training DVD's to our customers so that they do not have to come to us or us go to them for technical training on our products. We do not have any videos created for this just yet, but I am thinking that the DVD's will be a mix of video/audio/powerpoint content. Want to be able to skip chapters and have the customer be able to pick sections that they want to view at a time.
Have any of you used DVD creation software like this in the past and what was your experience with it?
Have any of you used Adobe Encore? Would that work for what I am trying to accomplish?

Thanks in advance!

Preferred Solution: DVD creation software

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: DVD creation software

I have no experience with Encore, but if I was in a dire situation I would probably take your videos and edit the slideshows into a single video via a program like Vegas Pro. Then I would use CreateXtoDVD to convert it all to DVD format and add chapters in the appropriate places while also making a clean looking menu.

I'm sure there are better ways of doing this, but if I had to do what you're doing right now it's how I would tackle it.

I need to build a small website for my Mum & Dad's new boat-trip business - nothing too elaborate. I have built sites before using Microsoft Publisher. This was very simple to do, but graphics always came out fuzzy on the internet. What software could I use (Less than £200) that is very simple? I have no knowledge of HTML. Is there something I can use just like Publisher (ie - put picture and text on and it converts it all to code) but that will keep pictures clear? Many thanks for help.

Answer:Which Web Creation Software? Help!

Thank you for that! I have always just been puting pictures in and have never really thought about the size. I'll give that a go on Publisher

is there any software to make dvd menus and such?

basically i just want to create a private dvd for myself so I can make databases and images and video clips organized in menus and such.

Any software to do that? And is there any software that can export a database into something presentable? (Like does microsoft have any software that syncs like that?)

I guess the most important thing is having presentable pages like frames where I click on a menu on the left and it opens on the right.

THanks for any help.
 

Answer:dvd creation software?

Well there is a wide choice.

If your looking to make simple data disk, Try BurnAware Free Edition http://www.snapfiles.com/get/burnaware.html

or DeepBurner

For DVDs with videos you can play on a DVD player, If you have Vista you can use Windows DVD maker, you'll find it built in.

But what you want i think is something more interactive, Normally you would make a powerpoint presentation, but if you want it on a DVD, im not sure.
You could try Nero http://www.nero.com/eng/nero8-introduction.html

Answer:PDF creation software

i can't say microsoft word is free but it is probably already on your machine. the later versions will export to pdf. use of a google account may also make it possible. you could attemot uploading an attachment to gmail (or into google drive) then selecting the" change format to google docs format" option and then opening the google doc and selecting pdf as a download option.

I am looking for a good video creation software that is easy to use. I tried Cyberlink PowerDirector 6 but I have had issues with that, firstly, when i produced the movie from the finished project i played the mp4 file and realised that the program had muted the sound on all of the video files in the timeline, and not just the ones i muted manualy, all that was heard was the sounds from the music timeline and the voice timeline, and the success of my movie suffered from that, I opened up my projet file in PowerDirector to see why this had happened and the program was running as slow as sh*t, but when i finaly managed to get it to play one of my video files i recieved an error about video source files, which i suspect is due to the fact that i had just downloaded a new media player (VLC) which didnt convert the files, theyw ere still in mp4 it merely changed the icon so i dont see why PowerDirector couldnt play them. (VLC was installed AFTER publishing the movie btw). Overall i got results no better than i had using Windows Movie Maker, which we all know if a freebie provided with Windows XP. So can somebody tell me either how to resolve these issues or a good alternative video software to use. Because i really cant be bothered with cyberlinks useless support.

I need some good reccomendations for burning stuff to a DVD that can be read on a US dvd player. I know that Windows Vista comes with Windows DVD maker, but I'm kinda put off by it: I was trying to fit a coupel episodes of a TV show onto a single-layer DVD, and while normally I could fit 12 or 13 episodes to a disc (just as a data disc), as soon as I wanted to format it to read on players the size of a single episode consumed 2GB, which tells me A) Windows DVD Maker is doing something wrong, or B) I really have no idea what I'm doing.

Please tell me what I need to do to create a fairly basic DVD that'll play. I don't need super-advanced menus or any of that shit; I'd just like to fit 4-5 episodes of a TV show onto a DVD (does it need to be double-layer?), so I can watch it on my TV. Thanks much!
 

Answer:DVD creation software..or authoring, I think

It includes a copy of Logo Plus, an OLE mini application for creating logos.The software is completely free.

I am writing a little application to run on WinXP, Vista and Windows 7. The application is to be used in a big company where only system administrators are allowed to install. The users have a restricted account.

Here is my problem:
When the software is installed I place a XML settings file in the CommonApplicationData folder. The settings file has information on SMTP settings and local printer information (supplied by the administrator under installation). When the users run the program they have read-preveliges on the settings file but they can not write to it = they can not change the default printer since this is saved in the settings file.

How do I go about this? I have tried saving the file to the LocalApplicationData but this will place the file in the administrator's LocalApplicationData and thus unaccessable to the user.

Any ideas?

Hi everyone,

Here at Kingsnortongirls school we a running a course and part of this requires that pupils use video editing software (we dont have XP by the way). We have looked at packages such as Pinnacle (which we do use in certain departments) but this is too sophisticated/expensive for our requirements. Does anyone use an alternative they can recommend? if anyone knows of anything which will allow to do basic video editing (i.e. add sound, add effects etc).

Also we need to convert documents to PDFs again can anyone recommend software, I have looked at one or two freebies (such as primo pdf) but this caused all sorts of problems with our printers (it uses a driver to enable conversion) and we would prefer if our other printers stayed as the default. primo pdf doesnt do this, it make it the default printer, even though we set our original printers as the default, it reverts back.

so if anyone can offer any advice on these 2 questions, as usual it will be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Steve.
 

Answer:free video editing software and pdf creation.

For pdf conversion OpenOffic.Org does it very well and it is totally free. As far as free NLE's go, I dont like any of them. I would reccomend Sony Screenblaster with DVD--its under a 100 bucks and a great NLE to learn on.

Mainly, I'm looking for a good tool to create DVD-Rs out of existing video files on my computer (in a way that will allow them to play on stand-alone players), most of the guides and such that I tend to find usually detail the opposite process... That is, how to rip/encode DVDs and other stuff for portable players, HTPCs, etc. From what I understand tools like Handbrake/AutoGK simply perform this conversion...

So what exactly do I need to go in the opposite direction? Do I need to use an authoring program like TMPGEnc or will something like SUPER suffice for a quick burn? To be honest I haven't really dived in and tried using any of these programs yet, most I've done is make backup copies of my own DVDs (or my cousin's toddler's movies) using DVD Decrypter and DVD Shrink.
 

Answer:DVD Creation

VSO ConvertX to DVD. Does exactly this and is easy to use.

Hi, new here...you guys have a poop ton of the info I crave so I choose ya'll.

Anywho, with that done:
Can someone PLEASE tell me what in God's creation is the "4fe0556.exe" running in my processes? I've searched high and low with no success and don't want it there if its not needed. So, if anybody has a clue as to what this is, and could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to offer.

Note: I've run all the prelimenary steps that are described/recommended on this site and have also run through all the spyware/malware steps in order to attain cleanliness. BTW, thanks for those steps, my computer was F*ed up something nasty and seems to be back to normal. The only thing really concerning me now is my processes b/c on average its at 50-55 processes with anywhere from 50-80% CPU Usage. I would like to decrease this if possible.

Comp Specs:
HP Pavilion zd8000
Windows XP (SP2)
Pentium 4 @ 3.20 GHz
512 MB of RAM
12% (11446 MB) of disk space usage for System Restore
768-2000 MB Paging File for Virtual Memory on C: Drive

If any additional info is needed, please let me know. Thanks again.

I'm not certain what it does, but I wager if you were to search your hard drive for that file, you would find it in c:\windows\temp. There always seems to be some randomly named exe in that folder running in the background. As far as I've been able to figure out, it is normal.

Answer:Jpg vcd creation

Hiya

Found this:

http://www.roxio.com/en/products/videopack/vpfunctions.html

just search for jpg.

Ah, here's something.

Use something like BBMPEG and the list option and define the number of
frames to last 25 x the number of seconds you want them to be on screen.
Resize them to 720 x 576 first and output to MPEG2 for best quality.

Resize them to 352 x 288 for MPEG1 or VCD

These settings are for PAL.Click to expand...

Answer:map creation

If you don't have one just tell me how big you want it, and what area of the UK you need. I can zoom in for as much detail as you want. Getting the right amount of detail and just the towns that you want is difficult. For that kind of control you would need to import a WMF into a program like Draw Plus, Page Plus click here or Corel Draw, type in the names of the towns and export the whole as a GIF.GIF Image: click hereWMF: click here

Question: DvD Creation

I burned a DVD of "Motivational Posters" and some music. It burned correctly and it loads in everything.

The problem is that my DVD player sucks. It only plays the pictures and I can't find any way to play the music at all.

So my question is:

Is there a way I can set up a DVD menu type thing to open up the music folder by folder?

EDIT:

I meant on the same disk. It's a DVD+R. Or am I going to have to make a new disk? and If I were to make a new disk what free software could I use for MP3's? Burner XP is what I used, and Xilisoft's DVD Creator only allows me to work with Videos.

Answer:DvD Creation

The only option for a DVD to play music if it does not support mp3's, is to encode the music into a dvd Movie with either a blank video track or even some of the poster images you have used. Most DVD players do support file browsing for mp3 so try messing around with the menus when you have the disc inserted.

Hope this helps!

I have some files that I'd like to burn onto a DVD... how do I do that? I currently only have Nero, and if it does convert the files into DVD format, I haven't figured it out. Any help? Thanks...
 

Answer:AVI or MPG DVD creation

Burning them as MPG or AVI should be as simple as adding them to a data DVD project in Nero, and burning.

However, if you want to create a DVD that is playable in (non DivX) DVD players, then you will need to convert the files into DVD format first. I've always liked DivXToDVD for this purpose. This will convert an AVI or MPEG video into an ISO file. You can then burn this ISO file as a data DVD project, and it will translate into the necessary file structure (ie. VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS at the disc's root) as well as the correct filetypes (*.VOB).

However, DivXtoDVD has been discontinued, and the SHAREWARE version ConvertXToDVD has replaced it. I've never used this, so I can't comment on what kind of job it does.

Another freeware alternative is AVI2DVD, but I've found that this program often messes up the sync between video and audio.

All these programs work the same... put in an AVI/MPEG, spit out an ISO, then burn the ISO, and you should have a working disc. Let us know if you have any problems.

You have a database of student records. The database contains the following information:

StudentName

StudentIDNumber

Major Valid data > Business, Math, English, History,

GradeAverage Valid Data > 1.0 to 4.0 in .1 increments

ClassYear Valid Data > 1, 2, 3, 4 - each number represents the class year with 1 = Freshmen, 2 = Sophomore, etc.
Write the pseudocode for a program which will read this file of information and print a letter to each student who is eligible to join the new Honor Society. No students belong to it yet. Freshmen may not join the Honor Society, but membership is open to all other students who have a 3.5 average or above. There is a scholarship available for a History major who is a member of the Honor Society, so all history majors will need a special message (on the same letter is fine) advising them of this possibility.

Hi all.
I'm interested in creating a DVD (or series of DVD's) containing multimedia pub quizes. Different rounds of questions on various subjects, some written, picture, music and video rounds that can be played on any DVD player preferably but on a laptop at least. It would be good to be able to (for example) play the intro to a track and ask them to name it then play the same thing again (from the same screen) and have it carry on further into the track come answer time.
Does anyone know of any frontend software that would be good for this? Something written specifically for the task would obviously be best but anything that could do the job and has good online support and tutorials comes a close second.
Thanks in advance

I have an excel spreadsheet that I am using with several VLOOKUP values referencing customer survey questions. There are several ticket numbers one one sheet that each have a series of questions asked to the customer, along with a rating of 1-5. I have a list validation with a dropdown that points to a ticket #, and based on that ticket number, the appropriate questions are displayed for that question. I also have a tech assigned to each of the tickets, so when a ticket # is chosen from the dropdown, the appropriate tech's name is also displayed.

What I am trying to do is have a checkbox, Yes/No, or True/False cell where the tech can toggle the value for each ticket. I know I can create a "third" column for the Yes/No value with another VLOOKUP to tie in to each ticket, but how can I get the value to be displayed based upon what the tech is choosing in the same cell?

ie. I want cell A1 to be a vlookup for the value in B1 (ticket # chosen from dropdown) a range of C1:C20 (list of ticket #'s), but I also want the tech to be able to choose the value.

I know this can be done in Access with a simple checkbox. Can the same be done in Excel?

I have a very restrictive permission system on my external hard drive, for security reasons (and because the files on the drive are very valuable (to me at least), scientific journal articles amongst other things) I have it set so that:
only one user (an admin, which has full control) can delete, this is further restricted by another permission that disallows deletion (this applies to all users, even 'everyone' group) so I have to make the conscious decision to remove the disable permission, then enter that user's admin password on the UAC screen to delete any files. This is to hopefully prevent accidental deletion of any files and to prevent any malware corrupting these files (I don't ever install using that admin account or use that admin account for anything other than when I am using these files)only my main account (read, write & execute) & that admin account has write capabilities (annoyingly though to rename/move a file the delete permission is used, why is that? Shouldn't rename at least be 'write' not 'delete'?)Only that admin account can take ownership and/or edit permissions, through both the filesystem permission and the 'take ownership' power in Group policy (only that admin account has that ability). Again, like delete, further restricted by a 'deny take ownership & change permission' group which further disallows any other user from making changesevery other user, including the 'everyone' group only has read & execute access

Hi,

I am a developer trying to write reports out to csv file on the file from an Oracle database.

I have a link that says: "download csv file" which links into a .csv file. inside the csv file there is a reference to an ASP via include, so that when the link is clicked on it processes the query passed to it and populates the csv file.. on the fly. This, means i do not have to use the FileSystemObject to actually create the file because it's already there, and the database query just loops through and bungs the data into the file.. once they request it.

If i browse to this directly it works ... but does not via the link. ?
