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 Samson,

      In VideoStudio, you would open your video project that is ready to be burned to disc, and head over to the Share tab at the top of the screen. Select the file format you want to use, pick the resolution you need from the Profiles drop-down, make sure the Name field is filled out, and click start!

      If you aren’t sure which format to use, we generally recomment MPEG-4, as it is a common format that just about every video player can read, and it compresses the project efficiently but not excessively.

      As for resolution, it is best to check with the monitor or television you are planning on playing the video back in, but these days 1080p is a safe bet. If you aren’t sure how old the screen or video player is, you may want to use 720p just to be safe.

      Hope this helps!

    how can I produce a project up to 4hours in dvd without losing quality

      Hello Femi,

      Unfortunately, a video that long is going to run into the limit of how much data can fit onto a single DVD – that much video would likely require reducing the video’s resolution or framerate. If the video cannot be shortened and using a higher compression codec is not an option, it may be worth looking into whether a dual-layer DVD or even a Blu-Ray disc is better suited to your needs. Just be sure to check if the player can handle the different media!

      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!

    I can do this HOW do burn to a USB

      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!
