hauppage PVR-250 & DVD-compliant MPEG-2 files ??????????

Discussion in 'Amateur Video Production' started by Edwin van Eck, Nov 29, 2003.

  1. Hi,

    According to the documentation of the Hauppage PVR-250 capture card, I can
    capture DVD compliant files and burn these to DVD.
    But I have been trying a whole day different settings (while capturing in
    the wintv2000 applications) with Ulead DVD workshop and Ulead Movie Factory
    2, but no results. It keep converting the file (which takes several hours)
    to a DVD compliant file, before I can burn this.

    The reason I bought this card is to get rid of this extra step!
    Anyone any suggestions for me? Please respons also to my E-mail below.

    Edwin van Eck.

    What are the attributes of the DVD-ready files you capture with your
    capture device?

    If you don't know their precise video/audio properties, then right
    click on them and click PROPERTIES.

    For example, I sometimes work with MPEG files that have the following
    precise video/audio properties:

    NTSC drop frame (29.97 fps)
    MPEG files
    24 Bits, 720 x 480, 29.97 fps
    Field Order B
    (DVD-NTSC), 4 : 3
    Video data rate: Constant (9000 kbps)
    Audio data rate: 384 kbps
    AC-3 Audio, 48 KHz, 2/0(L,R)

    Why is this important?

    Because if one knows the precise video/audio properties of one's
    source clips, one can eliminate the need for re-encoding in any Ulead
    DVD authoring application.

    One does so in Ulead DVD MovieFactory 2 by clicking the second button
    in the lower left corner of the interface - the button with the large
    check - to make the PROJECT SETTINGS pop-up menu appear.

    When the PROJECT SETTINGS pop-up menu appears, click the CHANGE MPEG
    SETTINGS button and adjust your Ulead DVD MovieFactory 2 PROJECT
    SETTINGS to precisely match the properties of your source clips.

    Also be sure to check the DO NOT CONVERT COMPLIANT MPEG FILES check

    If you follow the above steps, there will be no re-encoding in Ulead
    DVD MovieFactory 2.

    In Ulead DVD Workshop, it's the same:

    When you click the MAKE DISC button, adjust your encode settings to
    precisely match the properties of your source video and check the DO

    If you follow those steps, no re-encoding will occur.
