DVD authoring program to create cDVDs using 352x240 mpeg2 ..

Archived from groups: rec.video.desktop (More info?)

Can anyone here recommend a DVD authoring program that would allow me
to import MPEG2 fiels that are encoded at 352x240, -- AND -- that can
burn DVD format video to a CDR or CDRW disc (ie: create cDVDs /
MiniDVDs) ??

I am comofrtable with using Adobe Encore, but although it can burn to
CDR/CDRW, .. it does not allow for the importing of MPEG2 files that
are 352x240.

I've also trued using DVD Architect, but although it can import MPEG2
files that are 352x240, .. it can not burn to CDR/CDRW.

So is the best of both worlds in this respect just not possible? If it
is possible, then which DVD authoring program will allow me to do
this?

Thanks in advance,

    Apologies for the blank post. What I was going to say was go ahead and use
    DVDA to create the files but don't burn them with it.
    IOW, when yo're done, click "Make DVD" and then "Prepare DVD". This will
    create the VIDEO_TS & AUDIO_TS folders on your hard drive. Then use
    Nero/Roxio/RecordNow to do the actual burning as a data disc.
    BTW, do you know for sure that your DVD player will actually play a miniDVD?
    If not, go to http://www.videohelp.com/dvdplayers and select "mini/cDVD" in
    the Video Formats area to find out.

    Ok, .. I suppose that'll work. Is there a particular profile/setting
    I should choose in Nero when burning DVD data to a CD-R disc? I
    distinctly recall having ended up creating coasters using this
    approach in the past.

    Thanks,

    I use RecordNow (and it works just fine) so I can't say. Maybe someone else
    here can help out.

    It will all depend on your player.
    For Nero Burning Rom

    TMPGEnc DVD Author recommends using the UDF/ISO and
    the "Force DVD-Video compatibility mode" box checked.

    In my case I use a straight ISO mode so that the menus work
    with my player.

    Luck;
