    Default Help needed - 7 movies in one dvd but new to editing

    Hi,
    I'm a print designer with no knowledge of video editing/dvd creation based in the UK, and I have been tasked with compiling a training video consisting of 7 movies (supplied in different formats, sizes and frame rates).

    I have built a project in Encore with a menu system and imported the movies as separate chapters which seem to be fine in preview but I when I burn the dvd some of the movies are not showing the text properly and they seem very jumpy. Do I need to encode all of the movies to the same settings, if so what setting would be best to use?

    My deadline for this project is tomorrow as it was a last minute idea.

    Any help would be gratefully appreciated and might save me from a nervous breakdown!

    Thanks
    Mark

    You don't make life easy for your self. It's not great to have different sizes and frame rates. As you have found out, it can make life difficult with text placements etc. If I was you I would make all the clips the same size (720 x 576) (wide screen or not depending on the clips you have) but all the same size. The frame rate should be 25fps and render them in an mpeg2 format. This is the format you need for a DVD. Then do your work with the text etc.

    Hope you make your dead line.
