Burning and Exporting in VideoStudio

Burning and Exporting in VideoStudio

By Discovery Center Team

Learning how to burn or export your video project from VideoStudio is just a fancy way of saying, “How to share.” Once your movie is finished, you will probably want to show it to people, and that can be done in a few different ways. The most obvious way is burning the movie directly to a DVD or Blu-ray and handing out copies. Alternatively, you may want to save it to your computer, or upload it to sites like YouTube. If this is the case you will not be burning, but rather exporting. This part can seem a little trickier since there is more complicated language involved, but for most cases leaving it the default MPEG-4 will work for most situations. Take a look at the video tutorial above and get sharing!

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • Where to find the Share workspace.
  • How to export to MPEG-4.
  • How to burn a DVD or Blu-ray.

      Hello Titus,

      Actually, you can burn your project directly to a disc from the Share tab! This tutorial was made to demonstrate both exporting a project to a video file, and burning to a disc.

    I have a 1980×1080 series of short movies in MP4 format that I need to burn to DVD.
    How do I retain top quality on my project when burning to DVD?
    I seem to be losing a lot on compression of the files. It looks like the highest resolution offered on DVD through your software is 720×480???!?!!?

    Using the AVCHD option severely reduces the options available on creating the menu, so if I can do this on DVD instead, that would be great.

      Hello JC,

      The first thing to check is your project properties, which are accessible via the Settings > Project Properties tab. If your video project is set to 720p, it is going to default to that resolution when you want to render out.

      As for what settings to use during render, the MPEG-4 format includes 1920×1080 options at 30 and 60 fps, accessible under the Profile dropdown from the Share workspace, with MPEG-4 selected as your output format.

      Hope this helps!

      Hello Brian,

      Copying to a USB is more like moving a file to a hard drive, cell phone, or similar than it is like burning a disc. This would mean rendering to your computer following our first example (we suggest the MPEG4 setting for this), and then copying to your USB stick through Windows Explorer.

      Hope this helps!
