How To for TV Suite

I have TV Suite v3

I have been editing my movies with VRD Plus like this:

1) Record movie to DVD-RW
2) Copy and QSF with DVD copy 1.0.27 to hard drive.
3) Open video in VRD Plus and manually remove unwanted stuff and save as elementary streams to another folder on HDD.
4) Use DVD Author GUI and save to yet another folder.
5) Use IMGBurn to burn the DVD VIDEO-TS folder, making a DVD-Video disk.

What can I eliminate in this sequence by using VRD TV Suite? Is there a place where this is written down already?

Thanks....

Thanks Pat

I'll give it a go.

I take it that I don't need those other programs. Use VRD only from DVD-RW to DVD-Video disk

I haven't had a chance to read Pat's docs yet, but based on previous ones, I'm sure it'll be quite impressive.

So, I'm guessing this is what you'll do:

1) Record movie to DVD-RW
2) TV Suite has a new DVD import capability
3) Open video in TV Suite and manually remove unwanted stuff (or check out the automatic features)
4) Proceed in TV Suite to the Authoring features, and make your menu.
5) Insert a blank DVD disc, and have TV Suite burn your movie.

Of course during the above, you can save a project file, save edited mpeg, or write the VIDEO_TS folder to your hard drive, if you wish.

Let us know which steps you choose. :cool:

That may depend on the format on your -RW disc.

If it contains .VRO files, it may not work for import and you'll have to use the DVD copy program.

I have a Digital TV card in my computer so the stream gets recorded direct to the hard drive. I then use VRD to remove the unwanted stuff and save the renamed result to the H/D. I drag and drop the new file to a DVD+RW and play it in my DVD Player. I tried the new DVD authoring feature but the resulting DVD had sound glitches every few seconds [same time period] and the video quality wasn't quite as good unfortunately. Great program though, been using it for years.

If you're recording standard def video you can setup VideoReDo not to recode. In this case there there will be no degradation of video quality.

Thanks for that DanR, I'll try again a little later today. Appreciate the reply.
