    This tutorial is intended to help Afterdawn users convert a DivX file into a DvD. This is a great tool for turning home movies into DvDs as well as any other video files you may have stored in your computer.

    What you will need:
    DvD Burner Drive
    Divx to DvD
    Blank DvD-R Media

    Open the program. If you are prompted to update your version, do it, then continue with this tutorial.


    Under [bold]Source File[/bold] click the folder beneath it to the right (next to the red x). Navigate your way to the file you want to turn into DvD AND CLICK OPEN.

    [bold]Destination Folder[/bold]Select where you want the finished product to go.

    If you have [bold]CopytoDVD[/bold], check the box next to it. Your dics will burn as soon as the file has been converted, assuming you have one inside your burner prior to the file's completion.

    Both the video size (4:3 or 16:9) can be chosen by using the drop down box by "Aspect". Same goes for the image quality (NTSC or PAL) if you select one in the drop down box next to "Standard". If you have know idea what to select, leave it at automatic.

    If you'd like to see a Preview of the file while it converts, click the corresponding box in the top right corner of the program box.**NOTE: It may cause you a headache, I say "leave it unchecked".

    Got all your options sorted and selected, [bold]CLICK CONVERT[/bold]


    The process length will depend on the size of the video. Once completed, you can burn it with your favorite burning program.

    Mybe a buffering issue. Make sure your computer RAM isn't being utilized for anything of other than the necessities.

    It won't work for VCDs because you're converting the files to be read on DvD format. Not this particular method anyways.

    I'm not sure, it depends on a particular system capabilities. For example, processor speed and RAM play a factor. For me, a two hour movie takes about 45minutes for the process but others may be different.
