• Burn Video DVD from any AVI or MP4 files with Leawo Video Converter and Nero Vision

    Posted on January 14th, 2010 Maky | 1 comment

    Many of the movies and music videos downloaded from the internet, recorded videos from camcorder and portable videos from iTunes are in AVI or MP4 formats. To burn DVD of these files, video conversion is necessary to convert them to VOB format before DVD burning, no matter which DVD creator, author or burning program is used. Today I am going to introduce a flexible way to burn DVD from any AVI, MP4 or other file formats with Leawo Video Converter and Nero Vision.

    Why choose Leawo Video Converter and Nero Vision?

    Leawo Video Converter is a matured all-in-one digital media converter that can convert all popular formats, such as AVI, MP4, MOV, FLV, WMV, MKV and RMVB to VOB format. Nero Vision is the DVD authoring component of Nero 9 Reloaded. It has full-fledged DVD authoring capability from splitting DVD chapters to creating DVD menu. To get free trial copies of both programs, visit http://www.leawo.com/leawo-video-converter/ for Leawo Video Converter, http://www.nero.com/ena/index.html for Nero 9 Reloaded.

    Now, collect the AVI or MP4 files you would like to burn and let’s rock.

    First step, we convert the AVI or MP4 files to VOB format with Leawo Video Converter. Leawo Video Converter is actually very easy to operate. It won’t take us more than a minute to figure out the whole course by checking out the screenshot manifest below.

    Here is a brief introduction of what happened in the screenshot:
    First, we dragged and dropped the AVI and MP4 files into the main frame of the program.
    Next, we went into the Profile box and pinpointed DVD-Video Format (*.vob).
    Then, we opened the setting window to adjust some codec settings.
    Finally, we clicked the button to go conversion.

    So this is the operation of Leawo Video Converter. Very easy and comfortable for us to grab the points, isn’t? But, it could do much better than that. If you are in one of the situations below,

    1. The video has junk parts needed to be weeded out. (See Trim feature)

    2. There are black margins of the video. (See Crop feature)

    3. The video file size is too big to fit into the DVD disc. (See Settings feature)

    4. The video should have a signature to protect its originality. (See Watermark feature)

    5. The recorded video is too dark or too bright. (See Effect feature)

    Feeling frustrated? Just follow the links and you will get helpful tips right away.

    When Leawo Video Converter is focusing on the task, you can take a break and maybe a cup of coffee. Don’t forget to check "Open the output folder after conversion" before you leave. When you are back, the converted VOB files should be displayed in the output folder on top of your desktop.

    Now, let’s talk about how to put these VOB files into a regular Video DVD disc. What I mean is not a different DVD disc (DVD-5, DVD-9, DVD-R, DVD+R), but the DVD burning mode. If you burn these VOB files directly to a DVD disc, what you get is a dummy Data DVD which won’t play on a DVD player. Besides, wouldn’t you like a navigation menu to spice up your work? So we are talking about what Nero Vision can do for us: compile DVD menu and burn a regular Video DVD disc.

    Follow me and let’s take a glimpse at this powerful DVD authoring tool produced by the giant DVD software company.

    Nero Vision adopts wizard mode to sort out a clear progress of DVD authoring. I will post every wizard step here, so don’t worry. You won’t get lost.

    This is the main interface of Nero Vision. It provides many format options for DVD authoring here. We take the first one and leave the rest for your own curiosity.

    Things kind of stack up a little bit. But with the blue marked tips, you can see there is actually not much to care about. We import the VOB files here and then perform video edit like swapping title order, making video chapters and cutting video length. With an indicator bar below, we can easily know when a DVD disc is filled up. Click "Next" when everything is done.

    Well, it looks really a mess here. However, this is where we author the DVD menu. When we come to this part, we can customize the default DVD menu template the program has prepared for us, or go to "Templates" tab to change for another template. To affect the appearance of the DVD menu, we can change its background picture with our own, modify the frame of the thumbnail buttons and reposition the thumbnail buttons on screen. You can start to make fun of authoring DVD menu with such flexibility for your creativity. When you get accustomed with these settings, feel free to check "Advanced Editing" to reveal more exciting DVD menu authoring features. Click "Next" when everything is done.

    Yeah, now put all the mess behind and take a proud feeling about your work. This part will simulate the DVD menu display on screen with a DVD player. Consider the button pad at the bottom right as a remote control. Click "Pre-render…" to give a real-time animated simulation of the DVD menu. Click "Next" when everything is done.

    Now we have come all the ways to the final step: Burn the DVD disc. Don’t get over excited yet. There are still some settings needed to attend to. Check "Burn To…" to make sure you are burning with a real DVD burner not an Image Recorder, unless you want to make a image copy of the authored DVD on hard disk. Change the default "Volume Name" to give it a self-evident one. Go to "Recording Settings" to set a moderate burning speed rather than Max speed. This is usually effective to prevent your years old DVD burner from trashing your disc.

    When it is all set, click "Burn" to start DVD burning. Then, put this fresh-from-the-burner DVD disc to your DVD player and enjoy! How do you feel about burning a Video DVD now? Feel free to drop me a line.
