Default vcd to dvd help

I have tried various programs, and the result I get is stuttering and loss of colour in the film

I have vcdgear ( to ger .dat to mpeg), no1 vcd convertor (to get mpeg 1 to mpeg2) and then used dvd-lab pro.

I have also tried nerovision and dvd-lab.

please help.

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

1) If not already DVD-compliant, use "TMPGEnc" (or "TMPGEncPlus") to convert the MPEG to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this (This step may not be necessary, if your MPEG-2 files are already in DVD compliant format)

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 ;>}

The "AVSEQ01.DAT" file is an MPEG-1 file. You should be able to load it into "TMPGEnc" and proceed as I've described above...

Rip the mpg from the .dat in VCDGear.
Author in DVDLab, or TDA, or anything else that accepts non-standard mpegs.
