Video ReDo: How to Create a DVD

Video ReDo is a powerful video editing package which makes it easy to create a DVD. Here are a few simple steps which can be used to author your very own DVD. It's easy to add videos onto the disk and then burn it. The finished DVD can be played in any DVD player which is compatible with recordable DVDs.

Step 1: Creating a New Project

The first thing that you need to do is create a new project. To do this, start Video Redo and select the option to create a DVD project.

Step 2: Adjusting Settings

When you start a new DVD project, you can adjust a variety of different settings. These include the option to create an ISO file. It's useful to create an ISO file rather than burning to a disk if you want to upload the file to the Internet or you want to burn the disk later. It's also possible to create ISO files on a computer which does not have a DVD burner inside.

Step 3: Burning Options

There are also a number of different burning options which can be selected. These include verify disk after burning. This makes it possible to check that all the files have been burned correctly onto the disk and that nothing is destroyed.

It's also possible to specify the volume name which will make it easy to find out what is on your disk.

Step 4: Checking the DVD

When you have selected the videos that you want to burn on the DVD, it should be easy to look at the amount of space available. The space available will depend on the length of the video that you have uploaded.

Step 5: Menu

One of the best features about DVDs is that it's possible to create menus. The menus make it very easy to navigate and find your way around the disk.

There are a number of menu options which can be used. If you do not wish to use a menu, then the option can be turned off by selecting "No Menu."

When "Create DVD Menu" is selected, there are a number of other options. You can select what happens when the DVD starts playing, and what happens when the title ends. It's also possible to select a template.

If you want the DVD menu to be displayed when the DVD is first played, then be sure to select this option. Otherwise you can start playing the content straight away.

Step 6: Customizing Template

If you're not happy with any of the default templates, then you will be able to customise them. This is simply a matter of clicking and dragging the objects around the screen.

Step 7: Output Options

Once you have created the other steps, you will then be presented with the output options. Be sure to select that you are using a single layer disk here unless you are using the more expensive dual layers. It will then inform you of any changes which are required. It is also possible to make changes manually if required.

Step 8: Burning

With a blank DVD in the drive, click the buttons to continue the process and burn your video onto a DVD.
