    I have Corel Video Studio, is there a way to make subtitles optional on the DVD?

    Hi, After creating my video clips on the time line with in program music, transitions and titles I proceeded to burn a DVD . It took about an hour for the program to configure(if I may say it correctly the terminology) and burn the disc. Video time length was 59 mins 25 secs
    When completed a notice appeared saying it was successfully done. The disc writer tray was then ejected normally. However when I loaded the disc on to my DVD player connected to my TV. Message appeared as usual that it was loading. When the message ended I click the PLAY button but no video appeared.

    Need your help as to where I might have gone wrong.
    Appreciate your help on this problem.

    Thank you

      Hello Ong,

      It sounds like you may have burned a disc using a video format that the DVD player could not read. What version of VideoStudio are you using, and what format did you select when burning your project to DVD?

    I liked what I saw but as ypu might expect there are questions, example, can you burn a Power Point presentation, with music tracks, to a DVD. I own Studio 9 but have only a very limited use.

      Hello Prescott,

      While it is possible to make a slideshow in VideoStudio, the program is not capable of burning data files such as a set of Power Point slides. If you need to make a conventional data CD or DVD, you can actually do that from right in Windows! Here is a Microsoft Support article on Using Windows to Burn and Rip CDs and DVDs.

      Hope this helps!

    I,ve had several Video Studio programs over the years, and I still can’t workout how much video I can insert into the time line that will allow me to burn to eg DVD or BlueRay disc. I have just returned from holidays and have 29GB in AVCHD in my camcorder I want to burn this to Disc how do I go about it. I’ve done it in the past but it’s been clumsy , laborious and guess work ,there has to be a smarter way

      Hello Hans,

      A DVD can hold up to 4.7 gb of data, and a Blu-ray disc can hold either 25 or 50 gb of data, depending on whether it is a single- or dual-layer disc. When planning a project, it is often good to decide what the final media will be in advance, so that you can know the target file size. Next, consider how long you want the video to be! Once you know your data ceiling and your runtime, you can determine what resolution (probably 720 or 1080 for high definition), framerate (30 and 60 are common these days, 24 is an older but traditional one), and codec would allow you to fit that much video into that much space. If the result isn’t quite satisfactory, you may need to pick a different storage media or shorten the runtime.

      One silver lining is that you are coming from AVCHD, which is minimally compressed and so the filesize is quite large (most AVCHD cameras record at 10-14 Mbit/s). Rendering out to a different format will likely bring that 29 GB of video down to something closer to DVD territory, if that’s what you wanted to use!

      One trick you can use in a pinch is to use a video size calculator to help find the resolution, framerate, and codec settings that meet your needs.

      Hope this helps!

    I have VideoStudio Ultimate 2018 and I love it! I finished working on my first DVD with this program and would like to burn it to DVD. It says that MyDVD comes with the program. I can’t find it anywhere! And how do I get more DVD menu templates because there are only 5 in the selection list. Thanks for any help at all.

      Hello Elaine,

      Of course! The default installation location for MyDVD is C:\Program Files (x86)\VideoStudio MyDVD. Alternately, when it is installed a shortcut is added to the Start Menu along with VideoStudio. VideoStudio comes with some DVD templates, but once you have launched MyDVD you will find a whole bunch more to choose from!

      Hello Raymond,

      Not to worry – you do not have to remove previous versions if you would prefer to keep them! Each installation is independent.

    Je viens de voir la démonstration de votre logiciel Video Studio 2018.
    Je suis intéressé par les fonctions de création de DVD (menu, scènes…).
    Je voudrais savoir s’il est possible, dans votre logiciel, de créer des menus liant des scènes (par exemple la fonction play lit tout le DVD et s’arrête à la fin ou tourne en boucle, un clic sur une scène peut permettre de lire la scène et la scène suivante – ex : la scène 2 lit aussi la 3 mais pas la 4 et revient au début, en clair, créer un chaînage différent de lecture…) ?
    Est t’il également possible d’avoir plusieurs pistes “vidéo”, et peut t’on créer ses propres fonds de menu ainsi que ces propres encadrements de scènes sous Photoshop par exemple…
    Adobe Encore DVD faisait cela.
    Merci pour votre réponse, ça conditionnera ma prise de décision.

      Hello Guy,

      It can be done! You would need each video segment to be edited and rendered individually, rather than assembling them all in one project file. The render process turns the project timeline into a single video sequence, and we would need each chapter to be a separate object. If each chapter or video is rendered and complete, you can skip directly to the Export workspace to add, organize, and link your videos as needed.

      Hope this helps!
