Couple of questions on Moviestacker & TOK. First If I want to put 2 or three movies on one DVD-R what settings in Moviestacker would I use? and which template would I select? In TOK would I check the MPEG 2 block regardless of the template? I will be using DVDiT to put it all together. Comments and suggestion please. thank You

Hi there!

Its simple!

First u must know in what for a quality u want to encode. A DVD is a large Medium. It can hold 4,380 MB. So, check the legth of ur movies. An 120 Min movie will be sometimes larger than a 90 min film.

If uve short films in 16:9 u can use a better Quality.

How to do it:

First create a project with DVD2AVI 1.76. (Demux the audio tracks u want to AC3 files!!!).

Encode the AC3 Files with besweet. (It must be 48.000 KHz!!!!!. The bitrate should be min. 160 kb.)

So now uve all ur audiotracks in MP2 (48.000 Khz). and ur 3 *.d2v-files.
Start MovieStacker.

Its DVD so coose the right DVD resolutions:

3/4 DVD full (544x576 (or 480)) for AR: 2,35:1 movies

3/4 DVD small (528x576 (or 480)) for AR: 1,77:1 movies

1/2 DVD (352x576 (or 480)) for AR: 4:3 movies

Use the normal KDVD Filtersettings of MOviestacker:

Sample Script for 352x576:

Mpeg2Source("Enter here ur source")
GripCrop(352, 576)
STMedianFilter(8, 32, 0, 0, 8, 32)
UnFilter(50, 50)
TemporalSmoother(1, 1)
Start ToK

Choose one of ur avs-Scripts and open it in ToK.
Go to the section 'Predition & Spacing' and enter ur wanted filesize at spacing by using 'free'.
For example: Uve 4,380 MB free on ur DVD. So u can splitt this space to 3 same file sizes. So enter 1.460.000.000 Bytes.

Go to Audio & More an enter the path to ur encoded MP2-File for this movie.

At more enter this for the GOP: 1, 12, 2, 1, 25.
Go to Main. Choose Mpeg 2 and activate no muxing! Hit Start and ToK encode ur movie in the wanted filesize. Must be a nice quality!

Edit ur DVD with TMPGEnc DVD Author for example:

Open ur files with add and choose the right audiotrack for the movie.
Create a men with chapter or so and create the DVD-Files. Burn this with ur favorite burnig-programm like Nero 6...
