Help. How can I make a change on the Menu Screen without recompressing all files.

    After I prepared a DVD, ready for burning, I noticed a problem with the
    opening menu. How can I change a word without having to go through the
    whole recompression process?

    I know DVD-Lab will accept VOB files, and others probably do too.

    Steve, sounds like you exported an AVI from Vegas and are letting DVDA do
    the recompression for you.
    It's much easier to export the MPEG-2 & AC-3 files from Vegas (one less step
    for your computer) and bring these into DVDA. Then, if you do run in to the
    kind of problem you described, it's only a couple of minutes to fix it as
    DVDA doesn't have to recompress anything.

    Yeah. Thanks for confirming what I suspected. I spent more time today than
    I care to admit searching this group and the Sony DVDA forum until I found a
    reference to the same idea as in your reply. Render in Vegas. Thanks,
    again.

    I haven't a DVD burner but I believe it is the same as the SVCD's I create
    with menu's. I use Studio 8 and when the project is rendered and saved
    Studio creates a stu file and does intelligent rendering with both AVI's and
    MPEG files So the program only re-renders the change. As I said I have ony
    tried it with MPEG2 SVCD's but from the forums comments that applies to DVD
    as well. I am a video editing hobbyist and have found Studio to be very easy
    to use.
