Thread: Vegas to DVD

  1. #1

    Default Vegas to DVD

    Hi. Ok, so I have finished my project and want to put it on a DVD. I render it as a MPEG2 file. Someone said to save the audio and video seperately. Can anyone briefly explain how to do this? Then when rendered I open it up in my DVD authoring software and bingo?! Most videos will be 60 minutes or less so I can render at 8mbps.
    Can I just use Sony Vegas to render and Nero Vision to author the DVD?
    Anything I need to know?
    Cheers for any help.

    I dony use nero but i would be suprised if you need to render sep audio.

    I use DVD Architect from sony and you just drag almost any video file into the app and it recompresses the file as a mpeg2 DVD.

    The max bit rate for a DVD is about 9 mbps.

    Make sure you render the tight flavour for your country - ntsc or pal - to ensure max compatability.

    I have found some discs I make fussy about playing on some players when the dvds are over 95% full.

    thanks for the tip about the 95% bit
    I knew about the Pal/ntsc thing
    I did it, used Nero and watching it now.
    I already had Nero is why I was asking. So save $.
    A couple of posts have said to render audio and video seperate.
    But I did not and it is playing in front of me now. Awesome.
    My first full project, from cam to tv.
    Thanks again

    Well - I dunno about the sep audio advice - must be app specific as that is a new one on me. Will check your vid .

    The advice re separate audio and video is specifically for DVDArchitect as Vegas will allow you to encode your audio using Dolby (.ac3) and DVDA will accept .ac3 as an audio input.

    I believe the advantage of .ac3 is better compression - but I may be mistaken.

    Am using Nero Vision now. It is basic but ok for what I need at the moment. I am guessing Dvd Architect is a much better program that allows you to create fancy menus and the like. So will upgrade eventually.

    Any advice on how to render the 2 seperately? Or do you keep them on the timeline and just drop and drag seperately?

    Cheers

    The reason for the separate audio is the if audio is rendered with the video then it is PCM, if you render separately then use AC3.

    The reason to do to separately, is that AC3 (192kbs) takes up less room so enables more video on the DVD, also (I believe) that the standard for studio in the UK is AC3.

    enables 120minute video at good render for the video.

    As long as video & audio are the same nae DVD-A will take them as a pair, if not then drop the video n opne in TL in DVD-A an then find audio and drop onto the TL
