Burn To Disk w. Power Director:
Q: I have several MPG files on my hard drive that play in the InterVideo DVD
software. It appears that the analog video was captured nicely. Please
be patient and tell me how to burn them to a disk using the VideoAdvantage
Cyberlink PowerDirector, nothing has worked so far. I have tried the
software that came with the DVD Burner, Nero but it is asking for a format
other than MPG.
A: Here is the step-by-step:
- Launch the Power Director software and click on the Burn button
- Click on the Produce Movie icon
- Click on the DVD icon and click the right arrow at the bottom right hand
corner of the interface
- Under Import click on Video Files
- Select the files that you wish to burn to the DVD
- Once you have selected the file(s) you want to use click on open
- You will be allowed to preview each file to make sure these are the ones
that you wish to use
- Click the right arrow at the bottom right hand corner of the interface
- Put a check mark next to Burn To Disc and click on the Burn icon at the
bottom of the interface.
Transfer file from hard drive to DVD:
Q: Am able to capture a VCR tape to the PC's hard drive using the default
settings in AD FullCap. Can not figure out how to transfer this file from
the HD to a DVD. Have looked at the manuals and help files that came with
your software to no avail. What am I missing? Bought this product solely
for transferring VCR media to viewable/playable DVD disks. HELP!
A: Once you have captured your file, you can use the Power Director to edit
your movie and then burn it within the Power Producer Express.
- Launch the Power Director and click on the Burn button. This will open
the Power Producer software
- Select the type of disc you wish to burn (from what you are saying you
would select DVD), import your video files and burn the software.
On the Video Advantage installation CD there is a User's Manual for the
Power Director software that will give you an in depth view of the
software and its capabilities. You can also find an abbreviated version
in the Quick Start guide that came with the Video Advantage system.
Q: First let me say that I am very pleased with your product. I've got a
bunch of video tape that needs to be stored digitally, but it seems I've
been having more fun making slide show presentations from individual
photos! It took me quite awhile to really get the hang of it, but once I
learned the terminology and how to navigate the software, I can knock out
some impressive projects in a very short time.
So far, my only gripe is the menu page after producing a DVD with more
than one selection on it. I would like to just have the titles displayed
over the background picture, not the boxes, other photos or anything else.
If this is possible, I haven't been able to figure it out. Is it possible?
A: Unfortunately, the program is designed to display at least one photo/video
clip on the menu. There is no provision for just text. If this is a
priority, you may want to look into a dedicated DVD authoring package
which will allow you to do this.
Q: Before I bought Video Advantage, I inquired whether the software would
allow me to assemble my large quantity of video clips into a menu based
DVD. I was assured that this was the case. However, upon receiving the
product, the manual mentions only timeline based assembly of the clips.
For my project, I do require that I can access the clips via a menu and
sub menu based interface. Please advise how this can be done.
A: In the Power Director if you click on Help->Search and type in menu you
will be given a list of choices. Select Captured Clip Options. From there
click on the link for Detect Scenes in a Video Clip. This wi
