Nero Recode 2 software - Page 02
DVD9 to DVD5
One of the most popular tasks today: Fit the contents of a DVD9
disc on a blank DVD5. First thing you have to do is to run the Recode 2 program.
In the opening window you choose the appropriate task:
In this page we will try to explain how to
fit a non protected DVD9 movie (approximately at 7~8GB)
on a blank DVD recordable/rewritable 4.7GB disc. So we choose the first selection "Copy
Entire DVD to DVD", and proceed:
The following picture is the main screen of the program.
Afterwards you have to import the movie files you want to process.
This is very simple, just press "Import DVD" button. The browse menu
will be appear and you must choose the folder, which contains your movie. For
We press "OK" and the import procedure
begins. During this process you will be able to watch the movie in a fast preview
the video preview. By default this feature is enabled. Personally I don't recommend
this to all you that you haven't seen the movie, you don't want to know the
end of the movie :). The remaining time until finish is illustrated accurately:
When the analyzing process take place, the following picture
is what you will see.
Now depending to your needs you can adjust the Audio, subtitles,
menus etc. The program selects by default some settings which of course you
can change. Otherwise press "Next".
Before see what will happen we will give some information how
to adjust the setting.
On the left you can select among the movie contents. In the
middle there are three tabs about Audio, Sub picture and Info. Now according
to which part of the movie you want to adjust, you select Menus, Main Movie,
Extras and anything else that might be exist, as in our example Unreferenced
Material. Just for example we selected the "Menus" option.
After you have to choose what you want to change; Audio or Subtitles?
For Audio we press the "Audio" tab and we see a list of the available
output audio formats in the provided languages. In our example, we chose both
Dolby Digital 5.1 and DTS 5.1 formats, in order to have high audio quality
in our final compressed movie. In case you watch your movies on your 2-ch PC
speakers, you should also check the 2-channel Dolby Digital output:
For subtitles select "Subpicture" and and check which
ones you prefer. For those you don't just uncheck them. For example:
Audio and Language settings are available for your movie Main
Movie, Extras etc.
If you want to exclude something from the final compilation,
(sub content, extras e.t.c) just select it and press "Disable". Note
that you cannot simply delete these files, as they will interrupt the flow
of the movie and possibly make your DVD unplayable to DVD players. So Nero
Recode 2 allows you to disable all or a few of the extra items.
As soon as you press the "Disable" button you will
see the following picture:
A very useful option is that you are able to watch all the parts
of the movie you are about to exclude.
you can replace the selected item with one of the options illustrated on the
left. By selecting the "Slide Show" option, you will replace the
video with frame samples from the original video, taken at intervals of 0.5sec.
If you choose "Custom Picture" you you 'll be able to replace the
selected video with a picture, default by Nero or one of yours. Last if you
Color" you will replace the video with a color that you may choose from
a palette by Nero. Just make your choice and press "OK".
You will be returned to the main screen. Notice that the section
you have chosen are disabled.
Before proceeding make sure you have enable the "Fit to
target" option and you have set it to DVD-5 4.7GB. The video quality settings
will be automatically adjusted to maintain the highest quality for the available
capacity. However, additional slight adjustments can be done manually through
the slide bars.
After we have finished with the settings adjustments, press "Next".
In this step I describe you how to burn your project in
a DVD media or your Hard Disc. After we pressed the "Next" button
from the previous page, we will see the following screen.
From the drop down menu you can select where you want to write
your project. If you choose "Hard Disk Folder" or "Image Recorder",
click "Browse" to define the destination folder. After that, we recommend
you to enable the "Advanced analysis" feature for better results.
If you want to burn your movie on blank media select your burner's
name option. You must define a temporary folder, by pressing "Browse",
where Recode will make the temporary compressed/encoded file.
Thus you have to adjust the writing speed, depending on what
speeds are supported by your drive, and the writing method. We recommend to
check the "Advanced analysis", it takes more time but it worth it.
This will offer a two-pass encoding for improved final quality.
So we press the "Burn" button and the whole procedure
begins. While analyzing, encoding and burning there is a preview of the movie.
That's all, our new DVD-Video disc is ready.
