Hey thanks digitalvideo!

I don't use DivX either
I tried NeoDVD, but it doesn't work It always re-encodes the video. So there's something in the mpeg that it doesn't like. I thing it's the CQ or the GOP size. In NeoDVD the GOP size has to be 15, no matter if it's a PAL or NTSC DVD.
I haven't tried SpruceUp, because I don't have it. If you have it, give it a shot!

Hi digitalvideo:

Surprise. Good news. IT WORKS!
I just created a 2 minute mpeg with the KDVD template and imported it with SpruceUp trial version. I created an .img and mounted it with Daemon tools 3.11 ( http://www.daemon-tools.com ) and viewed it in WinDVD. Perfect!.

have you ever burnt it to a dvd and do you still get the DD audio i have burnt standard DVDs using the demo and nero. my question is do you still get the same audio doing it your way or does spruceup use standard 48khz audio and do you get a slightly lower filesize than 5 hours on a DVD using that audio ? and will the burnt DVD play also do you have to use mpeg 1 layer 2 48khz

The audio sampling is 48Khz, because thats the way it's set in the KDVD template. It's a DVD compliant template. But I selected 192Khz instead of 384Khz to save some space. I have played the DVD I burned in 4 different brands of standalone DVD players. Worked flawlessly on all!

Just got a copy of SpruceUp and the Daemon Tools,, how do I use th Daemon Tools to put the KDVD file in SpruceUp? Would like to try to do tow complete movies this weekend as a test, I know MyDVD works on your template but will try SpruceUp, because MyDVD will not allow changes in teh audio files to make it smaller. Many thanks

Daemon tools mounts images files. You can save your DVD project to an image file with SpruceUp, instead of a physical DVD device. Then you mount this image, or virtual image as called, with the Daemon tools.
This way you can test it as if you had inserted a real DVD in the machine.

To create an image, go to Export source options in SpruceUp, and select image as an output. Then select the directory where you want to put it. This is the image file you mount with the Daemon tools.

I think that SpruceUp doesn't re-encode the audio. I took a look at a small encode I did, and viewed the folders produced by Spruce, and the file size of the mpeg is about 1MB larger than my original.
So SpruceUP doesn't re-encode anything. And I used the default options.

Spruce Up Will accept various audio settings, if we made the change to the audio during the TMPGEnc conversion would that make a smaller file size?

Yes it will. I just verified by de-muxing the VOB created by SpruceUp, and looking at the audio, and it is in fact 192Khz. Just the way I encoded it with the KDVD template.

The test i ran on Hollow Man (113 Min) gave me a 2.4 GB file with your original Template, so if I run this again and change the audio settings to something Spruce Up will accept this should give me a smaller file size, which should allow we to burn 2 movies on one DVD-R (4.7GB) providing the movies are not over 120 min. Now I jsut need to review what audio settings Spruce Up will accept and change the settig just prior to teh TMPGEnc conversion.
