Default New to this stuff

I am new to all this DVD writing stuff. I have made one with Roxio 6, with it's DVD builder and then had to burn the image. It works, but then I found out how to make VOB files using DVDsanta (I haven't bought yet, just testing out. If anyone knows about this program is it worth the money to buy? Or is there a better one out there?) Anyway I was wondering if I could build the DVD using the vob, IFO, and BUP files? Is there anyway to create my own custom menu and create these types of files? I also want to be able to create chapters too. So I can use DVD Shrink or something to create my own DVD. I am making a DVD of VHS recorded TV shows that I have put on my computer. If anyone can help me out with my question it would be greatly apprieciated, thank you. I was also wondering about getting Nero ultra 6, is it work it to get?

For building your DVDs and adding chapters and menus, you can try TMPGEnc DVD Authoring for easy use with rudimentary menus, or try DVDLab for more complexity but with better menu options. Both have free trials, and the purchase prices are reasonable.

"VHS recorded TV shows that I have put on my computer."

What is the format of the files? - .AVI (DivX-compressed or otherwise), MPEG-1, MPEG-2, other...

One set of procedures (other posters may/probably will suggest alternative methods) would be:

1) Use "TMPGEnc" (or "TMPGEncPlus") to convert the .AVI (DivX-compressed or otherwise) to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this

2) Use "TMPGEnc DVD Author" (a different program than "TMPGEnc") to easily create the required additional DVD files and structure (and chapters and a menu, if you wish)


**If the combined filesize of the DVD "package" written to your hard drive is greater than 4.37Gb, use DVD Shrink (or similar) to compress


If your O/S is either Win2000 or WinXP, TMPGEnc DVD Author can also burn your DVD. Otherwise, use NERO to burn in "DVD-Video" mode
(As an alternative to "TMPGEnc DVD Author", you could use "DVDLab")


Let us know of your success ;>}
