Description:

This wizard will allow you to create a DVD from one or more DVD compatible MPEG-2 files. It is designed to be very easy to use. All you need to do is add one or multiple files to the playlist and answer the questions that follow.

You can add a menu that will contain animated thumbnails of the files in the playlist. Creating a menu is optional.

Features include:

* Playlist editor
* DVD menu with multiple pages
* Animated thumbnails in the menu
* Customisable menu graphics
* Add soundtrack from OGG or MP3
* Antialiased graphics prevent flickering on TV
* Both Widescreen and standard 4:3 support
* ISO DVD Image creation
* MPEG2 DVD compatibility checking
* Support for both PAL and NTSC menus

Requirements:

* Kommander >= 1.0 (part of kdewebdev >= 3.3.0)
* ImageMagick 6.2 or 6.3
* MJPEGTools
* Sox
* DVDAuthor >= 0.6.11
* Transcode

Not required (but recommended):

* Xine-UI (for testing the DVD)
* K3B

How to Install:

Just unpack the archive and run the 'Installer.kmdr' script. That's it!


Please contact me if you experience a problem.


-------------------------------------

*** IMPORTANT ***

Because ImageMagick developers keep changing the commandline syntax for every single version, the KDE DVD Authoring Wizard does not work with versions older than 6.1.0. Also, newer versions are not compatible with their predecessors. That's why you need to make sure that your DVDAuthor version is newer than ImageMagick, because it uses ImageMagick for menu processing.

Please send your complaints about this mess to the ImageMagick mailing list.

 ISO issues

 
 by Jer on: Jun 14 2007
 
Score 50%

scottme, I've found a working solution to the ISO problem. Use the wizard until you get to the ISO creation step, after finalization. Then exit the wizard. Open KB3, and select "New DVD movie project".
It'll open to a DVD file structure, with "VIDEO_TS" and "AUDIO_TS"
Go to the directory that the wizard set up the DVD in, you'll have the same folders. Drag and drop the contents into the proper folders in the KB3 project. From there you can either make an ISO or just burn it directly. I tested my DVD in my old PS2, which is pretty picky, and it worked just fine.
NOTE: Don't worry if the "AUDIO_TS" folder is empty, this is for additional audio tracks, etc. Mine was empty and the movie had perfect sound.

I think what the problem is is that the commands the wiazrd runs to do this step automatically must be broken, or path dependent. The wizard can't find Xine on my machine either, but it works just fine.

I was able to install it and get it to work, but I like Todisc and DVDStyler better. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to uninstall the software. My OS is ubuntu feisty and the KDE DVDauthor Wizard does not show up in the synaptic package manager. I used Kommander to install it. If I am supposed to use Kommander to uninstall the program, I can't figure out how to do that either. Any assistance is very much appreciated.

 Menu Preview fails

 
 by lagrandfuzzy on: Jul 13 2007
 
Score 50%

At "Menu Preview" when running preview it fails on a 9 min .vob file with:
Quote:
Whoops. Your Transcode version failed while generating frames from this video file:

file1.vob

Please check that this file contains at least 29 frames.

I'm sure the file has more than 29 frames. Thoughts?

Also, when I first ran the program it failed to run complaining that I didn't have konsole installed, so shouldn't konsole be a dependency?

downloaded 1.4.6, untarred, typed sh Installer.kmdr & got this error:
sh Installer.kmdr
Installer.kmdr: 1: Syntax error: redirection unexpected

thought about looking @ the source...did look & couldn't see any obvious errors... then decided that was your job...also have fallback software so it's not crucial, but I'd like to try it out...

 aspect ratio

 
 by chandraiitk on: Aug 4 2007
 
Score 50%

At first, thanks for the good app.

Well, coming to the point, if I encode the video with 16:9 aspect ratio and check the compatibility using this app, it throws some warning. However, it says that the video is fully compatible if 4:3 aspect ratio is used in encoding. Could you please tell based on your experience if 16:9 will work or not on a DVD player?! I have no experience in this regard and also no DVD player and so I can't test it myself.

Thanks!!


Owning computers nowadays is a bit like having a pet rabbit,
It needs to be fed with right stuff or it gets sick.

Try Firefox [http://www.mozilla.com/firefox] --- the right stuff!

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
