Thanks for clicking. I'll do my best to keep this short and to the point, but I fear it will end up quit long. But it is paragraphed and whatnot--with real punctuation and spelling--so I promise reading it will not drive you batty. I have 30 xvid AVI files that are about 110 MB each, with 12 minute runtime, at 480x352, with 106 kbps MP3 audio, and 1100-ish kbps for ave. video bit rate. I've used the bitrate calculator and it seems as if I can fit all of them onto one DVD-R 4.5 with the same audio and video bit rates without losing any quality. The files are meant to be kept separate, so in the end I intend to author the DVD so that each separate video file is accessed from the main menu. Upon the end of the playback of each file, I hope for the DVD to return to a menu I've indicated. I have purchased DVD-lab PRO but am still new to the program. I know that if I load multiple video files into the program I am able to configure it to perform as described above. But I've yet to figure out how to effectively run a batch with DVD2SVCD using DSRoBa, so converting all 30 files is a tremendous chore. If I were to find a way to join the original xvid AVIs (any tips on a quality joiner?), this problem would be solved. But, I'm not sure if that will complicate the plan I described above. That is, if I join all my xvid AVIs into one xvid AVI and convert them with DVD2SVCD using DSRoBA and then import into DVD-lab PRO, will I be able to set some sort of points within the large video file that will tell the DVD to return to an indicated menu? (Think of a DVD that plays a scene from a scene selection menu and then returns itself to the scene selection menu.) So, in a nutshell: Do I need to leave the files separate so that I can make a menu as I've described (and if that's the case, please offer a recommendation for a batch converter)? Or can I join the files and make the type of menu I'm looking for without having to learn a new conversion program (and if this is the case, please suggest an AVI joiner, and/or a short run-through of the how-to on making the aforementioned menu in DVD-lab)? So, I'm really just asking for some guidance here. There are a thousand ways to skin this cat, I'm sure, but I'd appreciate your input and experience. Thank you. And cheers for making it this far.
