I am recording movies using a nexus dvb card.
i am using videoReDo to cut and trim after editing i save
then author with windvd creator2, my only problem is it takes
about 4 1/2 hours to do a 90 min movie....

Is there anyway to speed up this process.. windvd does a good
job, but time is really a problem.

I am new to this and i guess what is taking so long is the encoding
Is there a way to burn DVD without encoding?

Your help is appreciated.

DVD-Lab can handle DVB captures without reencoding. Just take note that the resolution may not be DVD standard. Some players can't handle non standard resolutions.

windvd creator2 does a great job, with encoding and burning it is the speed part... I would like a way to burn my recording for quick playback in a stand a lone player.

VideoReDo is very fast at editing, i would like to find a fast way to burn my edited files to dvd...I guess my question is what program will burn the mpeg credated by videoredo to a cd without encoding.? If done this way will it play in a stand alone player..

I don't understand well what you want. From the information you posted you edit with VideoReDo very fast, then use WinDVD2 and it reencodes your video to change the resolution to DVD spec. You don't want to wait that many hours for your project to finish.

Option 1) DVDlab. It creates a DVD and will not reencode your files. Your player may not handle your files' resolution, you keep the resolution because there is no reencode.

Option 2) DVD player that can handle mpg files (mpegiso for CD-R and dvd-mpegiso for DVD-+R/RW). Check video help players search feature and check both options. Most players that support mpegiso can handle non DVD resolutions.

Option 3) Hack a Xbox. You can play any mpg file in a hacked Xbox in any resolution.

It depends, my player can handle raw mpg files, so I can create a DVD full of mpgs and my player will play them, no need to create a DVD is necesary for my player.
how long does it take with dvdlab to burn movie to dvd?
If you already have your menu and everything and your movie is 4GB it take about 20min in my computer from start compile to end burned DVD.
if you use ul movie factory how long does it take?
If you patch your video file to report 720x480 resolution then movie factory will not reencode your movie, so it will be as fast or faster than DVDlab if ul creates temp files as DVDlab or not.

If your player will play raw mpg files do you just burn them like a data disk?

How do you patch video file to report 720x480. and what program do you use?

Yes.

DVDPatcher, I only patched the first header and not the whole file. Remember to patch back after you create your DVD files, in this case if you used more than 1 movie, you need to patch all VOBs to have no problems like the guy that posted macroblocks in that page. I'm not using Movie Factory anymore, now I use DVDlab.

ok i think i may getting somewhere but here is where i am at now..
i patched with dvdpatcher..use movie fatory to author to dvd, very fast and movie plays ok in player..quality not that good but I think i missed a step...(part I don't understand) after patching should I use movie factory and write to harddrive. then repatch. berore writing to disk

if so what setting should i use to repatch

Note: you can what video but has distorted pixels in middle part of picture..when i let movie factory encode quality is perfect. Is this normal or will repatching correctly solve this problem.

thanks for all your help

You patch back to the original values from your files.

If you use only 1 video just patch the first header (select first VOB and patch first header only).

If you use more than 1 video in your DVD is better to select each VOB in and patch the whole file.

Then you burn.

This way your player will read the right header information for your video and will not show weird pixels on screen.

DVDlab never reencode the video, there is no feature to do this. The author selected this approach to keep the price down. Most resolutions are supported and report a warning when you import them, so you don't have to patch the files.

You patch for Movie Factory to use, create the DVD folders/files in hard disk (the process is less than 30 min in most new computers), you patch back the VOB files, then you burn those folders in 15min at 4x.

Try this,

a) Patch the file.
b) Open the file in Movie Factory, but don't say "go"
c) Patch the file back.
d) Tell Movie Factory to finish.

Don't know if it works with Movie Factory, but that's how you do it with some other authoring progs.
