I've taken a quick look around the forums, but I may have missed an obvious answer to this. I'm attempting to author a DVD using Ulead Videostudio. I think it's version 7. Unfortunately, the software is letting me down. I've compiled a project, made of various MP3 audio tracks and AVI video clips (from a canon S1 IS camera). I've tried a couple of different output methods from the SHARE tab in the program. The project is a video clip of about 67 minutes. Output 1: A video file. I've successfully rendered both the "NTSC DVD" video file and a standard mpeg-2 file. Output is successful roughly 60% of the time, meaning the program finishes the conversion without crashing. Output 2: DVD Disc Image. This method usually fails after successfully completing the "converting video" step. I say successfully, because the output converted video file plays and is full length, with all the appropriate transitions/sound overlay, etc. Output 3: DVD folders. This also usually fails after completing the "converting video" step. Output 4: Direct to Disc. This method is supposed to burn the completed project to a DVD-R, but does not ever get to the burning step. My environment: Windows 2k Pro SP 4. 1GB RAM, Athlon XP 2600+. Working on a non-boot volume drive, 100GB, with 30GB free space. At least half the time, Video Studio simply exits about halfway through the process. Not out of disc space, no warning screens or anything else, just crashes. I can't afford to buy authoring software, or I'd be using TMPEG authoring software. Can anyone help me get a dvd out of this software? Thanks much!
