Hi all, Heres the scenario - Hope you can help a poor frustrated little man. I've created a home movie for my sister's birthday and have edited it using adobe premiere. It runs for about 50 mins and is about 4 or 5 gigs exported to an .avi file. My problem is, is that i've used many program out there, and NONE have been able to perform the seemingly easy task of converting my avi to a VOB or DVD format that can be viewed on a DVD player. I've used: DVDsanta - When converted the file ends up having no video + only has distorted sounds which resemble that of static interference. Nerovision - Always tell me to purchase the mpeg2 encoder (or something to that effect) and when I goto nero's website - it says its already included in the nerovision package I have winavi - will only work in "trial mode" when I installed the full version - there is still an error that im missing a specific codec. When i install the codec - it says im still missing it. cusoft - I can't get the audio and video to meet (must be doing something wrong here) Please guys, if anyone can recommend a "fool proof" program or programs (or an alternative) that can take my avi to dvd It will be greatly appreciated. It would also help if a little info as to how to work the program would be given too, as i seem to have a nak for making things not work. It's already past my sisters birthday and all the people on the video are egerly awaiting the final product (including myself). All the above programs were highly recommended and were apparently fool proof, but this fool proved them wrong. Once again. Pls help if you can. I'm at the end of my tethers and have just about lost hope. It's been tormenting me for weeks now. Sincerely Sacraven.
