How to create stock DVD menus for Dimadsoft DVDRemake Pro

There are already 4 types pre-loaded Pool 2 is for PAL (720 x 576) with 2,3 and 4 merged titles and Pool 4 is for NTSC (720 x 480) however if you want to create your own the simplest way is to use Adobe Photoshop or CorelDraw and Muxman to create a dummy title and then import this into the stock menu.

All you need to do is located the correct titleset (this is normally the last one on a DVD merger) and right click it and select replace with still from the menu



The best way to create your own is to export an existing frame as a BMP to get the location buttons for you custom title and then use this as a starting point then create your own BMP and then use Muxman to create the VOB that you can then import into DVDRMKP to use for your new merger menu



NOTE:>> Muxman requires the use of 24 bit Bitmaps ONLY, if select the Photoshop 32 bit default this will give you an empty VOB but will not cause an error in Muxman v0.15R so make sure that when you save the file in Photoshop this has been pre-selected with the 24 bit mode.

If you are using the latest FREE version of Muxman v0.16.6 from the 14th October 2005 then you have the option of FORCING the aspect ratio and the resolution for either PAL or NTSC and 4:3 or letterbox 16:9 if you forget to use a 24 bit BMP the resulting VOB will look like this, caught me out a few times I must say..



Anyway point well and truly put I think so if you download version 0.16.6 and FORCE the video you can create not only the VOB file but also the corresponding IFO and BUP (VOB backup) for the BMP that you have created.



Click on START and then use this resulting VOB file to LOAD into DVDRMKP this will add yours to the stock list for use. It will work first time as you used the existing BMP as a template the buttons will already be in the correct place.

Hidden within one of the CDR-Zone forums is this great tutorial by blackstar from 2009 no need to rewrite it here so goto the link below

This tutorial uses the following FREEWARE Tools and a drawing package for creating BMP's you could use MS paint however I suggest either Coraldraw, Paintshop Pro OR the ever popular Adobe Photoshop CS2

does kodak zm1 record in pal or ntsc


It's neither, really, it's 640 x 480 @ 30 frames per second. The assumption these days is that you're going to keep your movies on your computer and play them there. However, if you're considering converting your movies to a DVD, or some other format that uses PAL or NTSC, then your answer will be "NTSC" because the conversion from ZM1 to NTSC will be painless, whereas the conversion from ZM1 to PAL will lose one out of 6 frames, resulting in very slightly stuttered motion.

How do we covert our panasonic TH- 42PWD7B to HD?


Replace it if you want true HD. The TV has 640 × 480 pixels (dots) in use for 16:9 or 852 × 480 dots for 4:3. This translates to 480p or SD resolution.

You can watch an HD signal with downconversion. You will also need a digital to analog converter for OTA signals since the TV doesn't have a digital tuner (ATSC in the US) It reads NTSC, PAL, PAL60, SECAM, Modified NTSC signals in the following formats: 525 (480) / 60i · 60p, 625 (575) / 50i · 50p, 750 (720) / 60p · 50p, 1125 (1080) / 60i · 50i · 24p ·25p · 30p · 24sF ···· SMPTE274M, 1250 (1080) / 50i.

I hope this helps.

I bought an HDTV LCD Sanyo from USA got it with me to Lebanon, when I turn the TV on the picture is so clear but it will not work on the satelite or caple, the picture not clear and has no voice. I need to know what system is using? thanks


There are currently 3 main television standards used throughout the world:

NTSC - National Television Standards Committee. The oldest existing standard, developed in the USA. First used in 1954. Consists of 525 horizontal lines of display and 60 vertical lines. Sometimes irreverently referred to as "Never Twice the Same Color." Only one type exists, known as NTSC M.
Here is a list of TV STANDAREDS I had for a while and can finally share it with someone. GOOD LUCK!!!! TECHMAN

SECAM - Système électronique pour Couleur avec Mémoire. Developed in France. First used in 1967. A 625-line vertical, 50-line horizontal display. Sometimes referred to by wags as "Something Essentially Contrary to the American Method" or SEcond Colour Always Magenta!" Different types use different video bandwidth and audio carrier specs. Types B and D usually used for VHF; types G, H, and K for UHF; types I, N, M, K1 and L for both VHF/UHF. Different types are generally not compatible.

PAL - Phase Alternating Line. Developed by German engineer Walter Bruch and the German electronic corporation Telefunken. Walter Bruch
patented his invention 1963 and the first commercial application of the PAL system was in August 1967. Also a 625/50-line display and variant of NTSC. Proponents call it "Perfection At Last." Due to the cost of the enormous circuit complexity, critics often refer to it as "Pay A Lot". Different types use different video bandwidth and audio carrier specs. Common types are B, G and H; less common types include D, I, K, N and M. The different types are generally not compatible.
