Have just gone through one of the more frustrating experiences of the holidays so far trying to complete a project that I have had put aside for the holidays since midway through last year.
You see, I have a large number of DV tapes that I shot while travelling around Europe, Africa and the US etc. Rather than have them sitting around gathering dust and deteriorating, I thought I would try my hand at creating DVD’s of the footage including musical backing tracks and DVD menus etc.
So I got as far as completing a huge 17GB movie this morning which I now have to convert to MPEG-2 and then DVD compatible VOB files… well that’s at least what I have gathered from my Internet research anyway. I’m pretty much at the final steps and all the software that I have been trying to use are failing and throwing useless ‘error’ messages at me. Grrrrrrrrr!
Back to the drawing board…
