Creating Disc's from Dvd-Mpeg 2 Files

The first thing we need is a project using the same settings
as the video file being used.

The quickest way.
Start a New Project (this is important)
Drag the Mpeg 2 file to be used for burning to the timeline.
Video Studio has now changed the project properties to match.
Delete the clip from the timeline and save the project.

We have an empty timeline, check the project properties,
Just to be sure, they should match the Mpeg2 properties.


PAL (25 fps)
MPEG files
24 Bits, 720 x 576, 25 fps
Lower Field First
(DVD-PAL), 4:3
Video data rate: 6000 kbps
Audio data rate: 256 kbps
MPEG audio layer 2, 48 KHz, Stereo
Dolby Digital Audio, 48 KHz, 2/0(L,R)(for VS 9)


From Share Create Disc this window can be seen.
Take note there are NO video clips in the timeline.

Ensure DVD is selected as the Output Disc Format

Click 'Add Video'

Select the Mpeg 2 file created in the previous section.
Mpeg 2 Video Clip inserted in timeline.

For this example we are not creating any menus.
De-select the create menu box.
Select NEXT and NEXT again



We are now presented with the final window, the burning window.
From here we can create copies of our work.

1. Record to Disc
2. Create DVD folders
3. Create disc image file

We can adjust various output settings.
Alter burner settings to our requirements.

Record to disc.

Does what it says, burns the Mpeg 2 file and all menus to a DVD disc.

Under Output Advanced Settings
You can include a DVD Player within your disc.
VS 8 only

Select OUTPUT to burn disc



Create DVD folders

This option creates TS folders of your project.
Saved to a folder on your hard drive.

You can view this file using software such as Power Dvd.



Create disc image file if you need multiple copies.

This option creates an image of your entire project.
Including all menu's and chapters.
Saved to a folder on your hard drive as *.iso file.

I find it best to create a new folder for each iso i make

Using the Disc Image Burner we can make copies.

The disc image burner is included in VS software and can be found at:-

Start / program / ulead studio 7/8/9/10
