Question about Ulead Videostudio 8 for PC

1 Answer

Creating DVDs from VHS recordings.

I am struggling to create DVDs from my old VHS recordings. My main problem is that when I play on my DVD player the DVD disk which I have created,the picture appears "shaking", flickering. I do not know the settings which I should use in order to prevent this. During the process of creating a video file (Share - Create Video File - Custom - Options - ULeadVideoStudio) I did check (select) the box which says "Apply Anti-Flickering Filter", but this didn't always help. Let me describe the whole process which I take in order to create a DVD out of my old VHS recordings: 1. I capture (record) the video VHS recording on my PC; 2. I trim the clip; 3. I save the trimmed clip; 4. I create a video file. To do all this up until now I have used my ULead VideoStudio 8 SE DVD software. 5. Now I convert the video file which I have created to VIDEO_TS format. I have to do this as this is the only format which my DVD player can read. To do this I am using ConvertXtoDVD (VSO) software which I have. Then I burn the converted video files (the ones which have been converted to VIDEO_TS format) onto a blank DVD disk. To burn the DVD I use Nero version 10. I would like to say that I do have the manual of ULead 8, but there isn't much which I can learn from it. In most of the cases it says "if you want to do this (change the settings, create new settings for example), this is what you have to do". But it does not tell you which are the settings which you need to change and what your settings should be, if you want to create something (a DVD, for example) or for any other purpose. What I mean is, that in my opinion the manual should have been organized in the following way: 1. IN ORDER TO CREATE A DVD, the procedure should be (you should do) A,B,C,D, and your settings should be E,F,G,H. 2. IN ORDER TO CREAT A DISK TO BE PLAYED ON YOUR PC - (then specify the applicable procedure and settings). 3. IN ORDER TO CAPTURE OR EDIT AN IMAGE - and so on. 4. IN ORDER TO CREATE AN AUDIO FILE ----- and so on. As I sayd earlier, all it tells is "If you want to change the settings, this is what you should do". But why I should want to change the settings, which are the settings which need to be changed and what the change(s) should be - this the manual doesn't tell you. Please help, especially with the flickering problem. Thanks, Ephraim Katz, Johannesburg, South Africa.

Re: Creating DVDs from VHS recordings.

While capturing VHS to PC firstly you have to have a hardware that captures the VHS to PC, I mean you need a MPEG 2 hardware of Pinacle {PCI card}, then you can solve your problem. OR if you have already captured (reccord) a video file it should be on MPG format.. if it is in MPG format then it will not flicker, OR you can try Intervideo WINDVD creator software to create a DVD format file...

SOURCE: seria number of Ulead VideoStudio Plus 11.5 with Dolby Digital P

If it is a legitimately purchased product, contact Ulead. If it is not, it is illegal to use someone else's serial number.

DVDs I burn will not play on other players. Players reject disc

Check that the burner is finalizing the discs. This can be set in Roxio or in the optical drive properties. In Windows 7, right click on the optical drive, choose Properties, then the Recording tab. Then the Global settings lets you choose to finalize the disc on eject. Try a different brand of DVD+R and check that the other players support DVD+R discs. (I know some DVD players only support DVD-R.)

I hope this helps.
