Default AVI (DivX) --> MPEG-2 (DVD)

hi there!

what i want to do is converting DivX movie files to DVD compliant MPEG-2 files in order to burn them onto a DVD that can be played back in standalone DVD players.

i already have a DVD authoring tool (SpruceUp, not the best one but sufficient for my needs), what i need now is a way to convert AVIs to MPEG-2.

thanks in advance!

greets
whatever

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 ;>}

thanks a lot, setarip! the procedure you suggested fits my needs perfectly. it's still a little tricky to get all resolutions and aspect ratios right, but it works in any case
