Converting AVI to DVD with Dual Cores

I can recommend ConvertXtoDVD.

Here the important quote from their site:
# Create DVD menus with different templates available, possibility to add background video, image or audio, have chapter and audio/subtitle menus
# Fast and quality encoder, typically less than 1 hour for converting 1 movie, and supports Multi-Core processors!

ConvertXtoDVD is hard to beat. and v3 is a big improvment on v2 and its fast
well worth a try
mind you you could also go the whole hog and use CinemaCraftEncoder to convert your avi, beSweet to convert your audio and DVDlab pro to create your menus and authour the dvd, if you have a day or so and want something that looks the part. it can take a while to get to grips with some of these apps though

convertx if you want it quick and dirty
dvdlab etc if you want something a bit more professional

nothing is better than convertxtodvd.

it's worth paying for. :shock:

I've noticed convertxtodvd's cpu usage is minimal. but it will chew a full gig of ram and ask for more.

ConvertX has been my favorite for a while.
But DVDSANTA and WINAVI are also worth using.
Nerovision allows for more choices as to menu design.

convertxtodvd..................


........................ although v.3 is still VERY buggy, if you don't care for swooshy graphics on root then go back a step to v2. It may not set the world alight with silly swooshy stuff but it will encode fast and faultless!

I use convertxtodvd for shows where the quality is not very important as the bitrate for burned dvd discs is typical in the 3800 to 4500 kbps rates for this program.

The program also uses a first only pass when converting.

Pros: fast, easy and gets the job done.
Cons: first pass video and lower bitrates results in lower video quality versus other options.
Worth a purchase.


Better audio quality and video quality if you use Nero seven
Video bit rates from 5000 to 7000 typical.
Dual pass when converting results in best video quality.
5.1 Dolby Digital encoding support results in very good audio.
AVCHD support for bluray disc burning and creation.

Pros: Dolby Digital 5.1 audio support encoding, double pass video encoding results in best video encoding.
Cons: slower than ConvertXtodvd,
Worth a purchase.

IMGBurn
Excellent freeware for creating ISO images from any video file in a TS video folder.
Pros: fast easy burning, its free, easy to use and navigate.
Worth a donation.
Cons: none found yet.

Good synopsis, and yes I am quite aware of the details of it's inner workings. For the quality of avi containers I"m converting this will do just nicely.
