MOV to mpeg-4 - Views only top10% of screen - newbie ?

higrader

Greetings
I'm new to video converting and I'm having a persistent problem...
I'm trying to convert Kodak MOVs to mpeg4 for viewing on the DVD
player which can read MPEG-4_ASP - Divx5.x codec.
Now using "SUPER" and my videos still only show the top 10% of the
clip, while the rest of the screen has a "noise" like appearance.
I've tweeked all sorts of settings on SUPER but I can't seem to fix
it. Even got same results with mp4cam2avi.

here's the analysis box from SUPER...


Can anyone help?
thanks - higrader

=======================================
Maybe the following converters would be worth a try:

(FWIW...it's always a good idea to create a System
Restore point before installing software or updates)

1) Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter
http://www.pazera-software.com/products/mov-to-avi-converter/
(click the Blue download button not the Red one)

The name of the file you are downloading is:
"Pazera_Free_MOV_to_AVI_Converter.zip"

After downloading...unzip and open the program...
(no installation required)

Drag/Drop one or more .mov files...

Choose an Output Directory...

Select...AVI - Video Codec - WMV version 1 (WMP 7)...

Convert...(the button is on the upper toolbar)

When the file is converted...you can edit it in
Windows Movie Maker. Just open Movie Maker
and go to...File / Import into Collections...and
browse to your converted file.


2) Format Factory
http://www.pcfreetime.com/
(FWIW...you may want to uncheck
all the boxes on the final screen)

After downloading and installing Format Factory...
open the program and choose an Output Folder...
(this is where you will find your files after they are
converted)

Drag/drop your .mov video clips onto the
main screen...

Select 'All to WMV' / OK...

Click...Start...on the toolbar...

That should do it...

Thanks John

I tried both converters, MOVtoAVI and Format Factory...
They both converted to WMP OK but my player does not recognize that
format.
My Tobisha DVD player can read MPEG-4_ASP - Divx5.x codec. It says
it's DivX certified.

I'm going to try other settings on those converters you suggested.

Would you know what the seetings would be to move me along quickly?

====================================
Truth is...I'm not even sure that I understand your
question...are you trying to play a movie file on
your free standing DVD Player on the TV?

Will it play Divx .AVI files or do you need to create
a Video DVD?

If your DVD Player is Divx compatible...maybe the
following steps would be worth a try.

Open Format Factory and select...Video / All to AVI...
in the left pane. This will open the 'All to AVI' screen.
Click the Add File button and import your .mov file/s.

Choose a Save location.

Left click the 'Output Setting' button

Select....Video Encode...open the drop down and choose...
MPEG4 Divx / OK / OK.

Left click the 'Start' button on the toolbar.

Thanks again john

Format Factory worked... I got mpeg4 files playing on my DVD player...

Now I have another problem...
I tried converting my MOV clips to DVD format only so they can play on
all DVDs using SoThink Movie DVD Maker. The conversion works and I
save it to a file. I can play the VOB file in Video_TS on my computer
but none of my two DVD players will play the file so I'm thinking I'm
burning wrong.
I tried to burn the folder enclosing the 2 TS folders, then I tried
the 2 TS folders at top level of the disk filing system with no
success. I'm using Deep Burner on DVD-R disks and I've tried
finalizing and not-finalizing the disk on both tries.
I'm thinking I have to burn TO a new disk ONLY and never burn over
again?
Any ideas?

================================
I don't know how you converted from .mov
to .VOB...but if you are simply burning a
VIDEO_TS folder on a DVD blank...that
probably won't work.

The following free software works well for me...
I create an ISO Image file from the VIDEO_TS
folder and then burn the ISO Image on a blank
DVD.

OK John

I used "Super DVD Creator" to go from MOV of DVD. I was looking for
something that would allow me to edit the clips and join then. Super
DVD also burns to disk.
I've downloaded ImgBurn and will tru it our also as I wanted an ISO
burner for something else, further on.

Super DVD" has it's limitations... ie: Cannot add voice to clip /
titles don't work too well... but it did burn a DVD and the disk
worked on all my machines.

Can you answer me two questions?

1) why convert a file to ISO, then burn an ISO file to DVD?... why not
just copy the AUDIO / VIDEO_TS forlder to a dvd? Also, would you
recommend convert MPEG4 files to ISO first then ImgBurn them to a DVD?

2) Do you know of a decent clip converter / editor that will do both
functions on MOV files and then convert to DivX and DVD? My problem is
I don't want to convert from MOV to something inbetween like WMP so I
can use the Microsoft free editor, then convert that to either MPEG4
or DVD only to find out I lost a lot of quality somewhere along the
lines.

=====================================
First...please allow me to say...you will have to
experiment to find a method that consistently
works for you.
=====================================
1) why convert a file to ISO, then burn an ISO file to DVD?...
=====================================
Because it works for me.

You may have a different result.
=====================================
why not just copy the AUDIO / VIDEO_TS folder to a dvd?
=====================================
Because it doesn't work for me.

You may have a different result.
=====================================
Also, would you recommend convert MPEG4 files
to ISO first then ImgBurn them to a DVD?
=====================================
For creating a simple Data Disk I see no reason
to create an ISO unless there are several files
and you plan to make several copies. In that case
it may be faster.
=====================================
2) Do you know of a decent clip converter / editor that will do both
functions on MOV files and then convert to DivX and DVD? My problem is
I don't want to convert from MOV to something inbetween like WMP so I
can use the Microsoft free editor, then convert that to either MPEG4

===================================
Personally I've had good results with Format
Factory and it seems that more than one app
is always required to finish a project.

I thought you already said the MPEG4 files
rendered as Divx were playing on your DVD
Player.

Do you now wish to create a Video DVD that
has a VIDEO_TS folder with VOB files?
Most any DVD Player should play this type
of disk.

If the Super DVD Creator software is working
for you it may be best to stay with it. If you have
certain tasks that must be performed in Movie
Maker why can't you import the completed .wmv
or .avi files into Super for final rendering?

Here's the method I use (after much trial and error)
to create Video DVDs.

As an MS Digital Media MVP I received a
complimentary retail copy of the following
software (I know it says free but that is only
for a limited number of uses).

Free DVD Creator - create dvd from:
AVI to DVD, DivX to DVD, Xvid to DVD
http://www.minidvdsoft.com/dvdcreator/download_free_dvd_creator.html
(left click the small download button with Blue text)
(the file you want to download is.....
"freedvdcreator.exe")

I use Free DVD Creator to render the video
clips to the VIDEO_TS format. I do not use
this software to burn the DVD...I've had more
consistent results with ImgBurn.

Sometimes the result is a file that cannot be
burned on a single 4.7GB DVD but it usually
fits.

Once the VIDEO_TS file is rendered...I use
the freeware ImgBurn to create an ISO Image
of the VIDEO_TS folder. Once you have the
ISO Image you can burn it on the DVD and
make as many copies are you require.

Update on Free DVD Creator...

To clarify...the software is free but after a limited
number of uses...you must go to the website each
time and request a single use key. At this point it
would be best to purchase the software.

This is the only software I have used that gives me
consistent results with Xvid .avi files.

I am new to video converting and I am having a persistent problem...
I am trying to convert Kodak MOVs to mpeg4 for viewing on the DVD
player which can read MPEG-4_ASP - Divx5.x codec.
Now using "SUPER" and my videos still only show the top 10% of the
clip, while the rest of the screen has a "noise" like appearance.
I have tweeked all sorts of settings on SUPER but I cannot seem to fix
it. Even got same results with mp4cam2avi.

here is the analysis box from SUPER...


Can anyone help?
thanks - higrader

Maybe the following converters would be worth a try:

(FWIW...it is always a good idea to create a System
Restore point before installing software or updates)

1) Pazera Free MOV to AVI Converter
http://www.pazera-software.com/products/mov-to-avi-converter/
(click the Blue download button not the Red one)

The name of the file you are downloading is:
"Pazera_Free_MOV_to_AVI_Converter.zip"

After downloading...unzip and open the program...
(no installation required)

Drag/Drop one or more .mov files...

Choose an Output Directory...

Select...AVI - Video Codec - WMV version 1 (WMP 7)...

Convert...(the button is on the upper toolbar)

When the file is converted...you can edit it in
Windows Movie Maker. Just open Movie Maker
and go to...File / Import into Collections...and
browse to your converted file.


2) Format Factory
http://www.pcfreetime.com/
(FWIW...you may want to uncheck
all the boxes on the final screen)

After downloading and installing Format Factory...
open the program and choose an Output Folder...
(this is where you will find your files after they are
converted)

Drag/drop your .mov video clips onto the
main screen...

Select 'All to WMV' / OK...

Click...Start...on the toolbar...

That should do it...

Truth is...I am not even sure that I understand your
question...are you trying to play a movie file on
your free standing DVD Player on the TV?

Will it play Divx .AVI files or do you need to create
a Video DVD?

If your DVD Player is Divx compatible...maybe the
following steps would be worth a try.

Open Format Factory and select...Video / All to AVI...
in the left pane. This will open the 'All to AVI' screen.
Click the Add File button and import your .mov file/s.

Choose a Save location.

Left click the 'Output Setting' button

Select....Video Encode...open the drop down and choose...
MPEG4 Divx / OK / OK.

Left click the 'Start' button on the toolbar.

Thanks JohnI tried both converters, MOVtoAVI and Format Factory...
Thanks John

I tried both converters, MOVtoAVI and Format Factory...
They both converted to WMP OK but my player does not recognize that
format.
My Tobisha DVD player can read MPEG-4_ASP - Divx5.x codec. It says
it is DivX certified.

I am going to try other settings on those converters you suggested.

Would you know what the seetings would be to move me along quickly?

thanks - higrader

I do not know how you converted from .mov
to .VOB...but if you are simply burning a
VIDEO_TS folder on a DVD blank...that
probably will not work.

The following free software works well for me...
I create an ISO Image file from the VIDEO_TS
folder and then burn the ISO Image on a blank
DVD.

Thanks again johnFormat Factory worked...
Thanks again john

Format Factory worked... I got mpeg4 files playing on my DVD player...

Now I have another problem...
I tried converting my MOV clips to DVD format only so they can play on
all DVDs using SoThink Movie DVD Maker. The conversion works and I
save it to a file. I can play the VOB file in Video_TS on my computer
but none of my two DVD players will play the file so I am thinking I am
burning wrong.
I tried to burn the folder enclosing the 2 TS folders, then I tried
the 2 TS folders at top level of the disk filing system with no
success. I am using Deep Burner on DVD-R disks and I have tried
finalizing and not-finalizing the disk on both tries.
I am thinking I have to burn TO a new disk ONLY and never burn over
again?
Any ideas?

For creating a simple Data Disk I see no reason
to create an ISO unless there are several files
and you plan to make several copies. In that case
it may be faster.

===================================
Personally I have had good results with Format
Factory and it seems that more than one app
is always required to finish a project.

I thought you already said the MPEG4 files
rendered as Divx were playing on your DVD
Player.

Do you now wish to create a Video DVD that
has a VIDEO_TS folder with VOB files?
Most any DVD Player should play this type
of disk.

If the Super DVD Creator software is working
for you it may be best to stay with it. If you have
certain tasks that must be performed in Movie
Maker why cannot you import the completed .wmv
or .avi files into Super for final rendering?

Here is the method I use (after much trial and error)
to create Video DVDs.

As an MS Digital Media MVP I received a
complimentary retail copy of the following
software (I know it says free but that is only
for a limited number of uses).

Free DVD Creator - create dvd from:
AVI to DVD, DivX to DVD, Xvid to DVD
http://www.minidvdsoft.com/dvdcreator/download_free_dvd_creator.html
(left click the small download button with Blue text)
(the file you want to download is.....
"freedvdcreator.exe")

I use Free DVD Creator to render the video
clips to the VIDEO_TS format. I do not use
this software to burn the DVD...I have had more
consistent results with ImgBurn.

Sometimes the result is a file that cannot be
burned on a single 4.7GB DVD but it usually
fits.

Once the VIDEO_TS file is rendered...I use
the freeware ImgBurn to create an ISO Image
of the VIDEO_TS folder. Once you have the
ISO Image you can burn it on the DVD and
make as many copies are you require.

Update on Free DVD Creator...To clarify...
Update on Free DVD Creator...

To clarify...the software is free but after a limited
number of uses...you must go to the website each
time and request a single use key. At this point it
would be best to purchase the software.

This is the only software I have used that gives me
consistent results with Xvid .avi files.

OK JohnI used "Super DVD Creator" to go from MOV of DVD.
OK John

I used "Super DVD Creator" to go from MOV of DVD. I was looking for
something that would allow me to edit the clips and join then. Super
DVD also burns to disk.
I have downloaded ImgBurn and will tru it our also as I wanted an ISO
burner for something else, further on.

Super DVD" has it is limitations... ie: Cannot add voice to clip /
titles do not work too well... but it did burn a DVD and the disk
worked on all my machines.

Can you answer me two questions?

1) why convert a file to ISO, then burn an ISO file to DVD?... why not
just copy the AUDIO / VIDEO_TS forlder to a dvd? Also, would you
recommend convert MPEG4 files to ISO first then ImgBurn them to a DVD?

2) Do you know of a decent clip converter / editor that will do both
functions on MOV files and then convert to DivX and DVD? My problem is
I do not want to convert from MOV to something inbetween like WMP so I
can use the Microsoft free editor, then convert that to either MPEG4
or DVD only to find out I lost a lot of quality somewhere along the
lines.

You're welcome and thanks for the update.

I agree...it is a complex subject...if there is
a one stop solution to Video editing - Video
burning...I have not found it.

you have helped me a lot, and I guess with time it will get easier...

camera.
