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.
