What do ya'll use to author your KDVD files to DVD+/-R. The reason that I ask is that I have tried DVD MovieFactory 2 and DVD Workshop and I get the exact same error on my 2 movies that I am attempting to author into a DVD. They both state that the number of chapters chosen exceed the number of frames?!? I figured it to be a bug so I switched proggies and got the exact same error. So the problem has to be my movies. Encoded using TSMPGE 2.5 Plus using the KDVD Full D-1 Template, 16x9 Aspect Ratio. both proggies state the files are 29.97 framerates. I encoded using 23.98 (with 3:2 Pulldown when playback activated). I think that this is where the problem lies... Should I just use Pulldown all by itself?? I would hate to have to encode to 29.97 and waiste space. Anybody else having troubles with these 2 proggies??

SodGawd,

I have been troubleshooting the same problem for the past month. It seems that the only way that Movie Factory will accept all chapters is when the frame rate is 29.97 (not 3:2 pulldown).

I have an ATI Radian card and if I record from TV with 3:2 pulldown it works (I don't know why!).

Try the new TMPGEnc DVD Author http://www.pegasys-inc.com/e_tmpg_author.html (get 30 day trial) , it does it all. Accepts VOBs... I love it.


Good luck,
Shaq


Main features



1. A user friendly interface with an easy to use five-step procedure.
We have designed the work procedure in five easy steps so even beginnners can start making their own DVD-Video at once.

2. Supports every setting in TMPGEnc Plus 2.5.
TMPGEnc DVD Author supports MPEG-2 files encoded with advanced settings, such as a 3:2 pull down and a reverse 3:2 pull down, which other conventional authoring software does not. By using files produced with TMPGEnc you can obtain high quality DVD-Video.

3. Cut out unwanted scenes during authoring.
It is possible to cut out unwanted scenes or to use only specific preset scenes. DVD Author really shows its strength when working with captured files.

4. Fast preview and work response when working with Cut edit or inserting Chapter points.
The editing function and inserting Chapter points is carried out using thumbnail display in the GOP structure, and can therefore be done while watching the original source in a a preview window.

5. Create DVD-Video with up to 99 tracks and up to 99 chapter in each track.
You can make up to 99 tracks and up to 99 chapters (in each track). The chapters can be inserted manually, or automatically at a regular interval or a specified number of chapters. A thumbnail image can be manually applied to each chapter.

6. Quickly convert MPEG files to ifo, VOB files without re-encoding.
Since DVD Author does not re-encode the video file, you can quickly convert MPEG files to a DVD file folder structure without degrading the quality.

7. Convert to 2 Channel DVD Audio, where the left and right channel has been split up.
Supports MPEG-2 source files captured from bilingual TV broadcasts. By splitting up the audio into the right and left channel, it is possible to create bilingual DVD-Video.

8. Re-edit your DVD-Video files (VIDEO-TS.ifo).
You can re-edit the DVD-Video you have already created. Because the chapter point information is also acquired it is not necessary to insert them again. Without losing quality you can redo you DVD-Video.

Ok.. I tried TMPGEnc's DVD Author.. It took and made a DVD from my pulldown enabled MPEG-2 files no problemo and they played great in PowerDVD (my test player). I really like the chapter building part of it but the menu creation area needs a lot of work. I don't particularly like template based menus. I like total control of the layout. if that were added to it then I'd say that it is off to the right start.

I am also keepin my peeps on DVD-Lab.. Looks promising for the price ($100).

Take a look.. http://www.mediachance.com/dvdlab/index.html
