Just got a DVD camcorder recently. I have two disks with files and want to string some together (perhaps edit out some short portions) and burn to a full size DVD. As a test I copied the files to my PC and eventually with a trial version of MPEG Video Wizard put together the files I wanted (the editing bits out can come when I know what I am doing) and exported to a DVD. The resulting file is an MPEG and plays on my PC, but not on the DVD player, which I guess needs .VOB files. Not sure how to do this and create .IFO too.
I'm a bit confused about terminology: authoring, reediting, converting, reconverting, demuxing etc and would welcome a simple outline/flowchart of the processes involved in what I want to do. Suggestions of suitable easy to use software would helpful. I do not foresee doing anything very ambitious in video making and might not need to do more than joining, editing out, adding transitions and titles.
