When I'm looking at my video collection I see different formats, file sizes, resolutions, bitrates, audio formats and codecs. It normally takes some time to create a DVD from this assortment of different formats. What would you do if you wanted to create a DVD from various .mov, .avi and .mpg files? Convert them, load them into a program that is able to create DVDs and burn them afterwards? How much time would that take, what would you say?
DVD Flick is a powerful DVD authoring software which can automatically create a DVD from various video formats such as Apple quicktime, divx, flash video and mpeg. There is no need to convert them into a DVD compliant format, just load them into DVD Flick and it will do the rest for you. All that needs to be done after DVD Flick finished converting the files into the appropriate format is to burn them.
You should take a look at the projects settings before proceeding to generate the DVD. You may select a different target size such as CD, DVD-Ram or Mini-DVD, change the target format between PAL and NTSC and change the quality of the encoding process. A better quality or a second pass results in a longer generation time but also in a better video and audio quality.
You may select the audio format and bitrate and opt to generate a iso file instead of a video_ts folder. It is also possible to burn the new DVD right after the generation finishes.
The only thing that is really missing is the missing menu feature. There is no way to create a menu at this moment which means all files are played in a row which could get confusing if you have many small movies on a DVD.
Here is a quick rundown on how to create a video DVD with the help of DVD Flick.
- Download and install the program, and start it afterwards.
- Click on the Add title link on the right sidebar to load video files that you want to burn to DVD
- You can edit or remove titles, and move them up or down if you want to modify the order. The program modifies the quality of the video files automatically so that they fit on the target disc.
- Before you start you should take a look at the project settings menu to configure the target size which allows you to burn the video files to various formats including VCD and dual-layer DVD, as well as target format (pal or ntsc), and whether you want to create an ISO image or burn the resulting video directly to the selected disc format.
- You should also check out the menu settings where you can select a theme and make some modifications as to how the items are displayed on the screen
- DVD Flick creates the video DVD then which it can automatically send to a burning software like IMGBurn.
