Do you mean Video Studio? I know there are higher level programs Ulead does.
I've stated before what I work with. I'd be glad to know more about your setup and how it works.
Cyrano, I meant Movie Factory 6.
Here is a list of programs you need.
Womble MPEG Video Wizard DVD
Ulead Movie Factory 6
Also, the max size of your files should 4 gig or less. This equates to 20 minutes of HDV footage per disk. You can use DVD-9 disks to get 40 minutes as well.
Cyrano. I use CapDVHS to get the video off of my HV-10 onto the computer. You can download here for free. http://www.videohelp.com/tools/CapDVHS
I then use VideoRedo to clean up the HDV video, make basic cuts of the program and create a compliant MPEG2 Program Stream. Hit save as, select MPEG2 Program Steam and it will convert the file in minutes.
You can buy it here: http://www.videoredo.com
I then take that file and load it into MPEG Video Wizard DVD.
You can get it here: http://www.womble.com/download/
Add the file to the timeline. Hit the export button. Select MPEG2 in the video tab and where you want to save the file. Click the Audio tab. Hit the AC-3 button then select AC-3 5.1 beneath it. Click the Monitor tab and hit start. It saves the file on your hard drive as a compliant MPEG2 Program Stream movie with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio.
Open Ulead Movie Factory 6. You can buy it anywhere or I think online.
Click the New Video Project. Select HD-DVD as the type of movie you are making. Change the type on the left bottom of the screen to HD-DVD Standard 15g. Open your file that was created using Womble's MPEG Video Wizard DVD. Click next. Here you can add menus, chapters or click on the edit room to add transitions etc.
I like to add chapter intervals at this stage and nothing else. I don't like the menus in MF6. Click the film with a Gear on it button at the bottom. Make sure you select "do not convert compliant MPEG files" button is selected. Click the change MPEG settings, then hit customize. Click the Compression tab at the top. Select Dolby Digital and the Audio type to the bottom position. Click next two times. When you get to the burn screen, select "Create HD-DVD folders" and not the create disk button. You can at this point burn it to disk but if you have a Toshiba HD-A2 player (2nd gen player) you have to use Nero to burn the disk. Click the box and select a folder to burn the file on your HDD.
Open Nero 7. Select Burning Rom. Select DVD at the top, then DVD-ROM (UDF) as the type. Click the Multisession Tab. Select no Multisession. Select the UDF tab. Under options, select Enable XBOX Compatabilty. You may or may not see an error message if you do, just ignor. Click the New Button. Find the HD-DVD_TS on you computer that you created using MF6. Drag it from the right of your screen to the disk on the upper left hand corner of the screen. Once you have done this, click Recorder button, then "Choose Recorder". On the bottom left had side, click the options tab. make sure that you have on the bottom left hand side the term "Book type settings:"Click the button underneath and make sure it says Physical disk type selected. Hit Okay! The reason you do this is because the newer Toshiba HD-DVD players choke on the ROM selected Book types. The older 1st gen HD-DVD players didn't have an issue. If you don't have this selected, than your video will be choppy and drive you insane.
The Burn button will be available at the top of the screen. It has a match on top of the disk looking button.
Click it and burn your disk. When its done, put it in your player and you are watching HDV with DD5.1 in less than 45 minutes.
Best of luck!
