    Okay, so I'm totally new to DVD burning. Let's just say that right up front.

    But I just got this great new computer and it has a DVD burner and I'd like to use it. What I'd really like to do is burn all of my favorite scenes from my porn DVD collection on to 1 or 2 DVDs. Can anyone out there give me good step-by-step instructions on how to do this, including a proper (and hopefully free...or at least affordable) program I can use? :confused:

    I'd really like some help! (Thanks in advance...)

    Check and see if a program is on the computer already'
    I have 4 on my laptop. Windows Media Player,Win DVD Factory, Ulead DVD Factory, and Windows Media Center.
    Anyway you usually copy to a image file and then burn from that file.

    Download Burn for free

    Try downloading this, it is my favorite program to save multiple files to a DVD.

    another easy way is to put all your files (about 4 gigs) into a folder in Documents. Right click and choose send to E: or whichever drive your DVD burner is in.

    if you have a mac... great news....

    Use Quicktime Pro to copy any videos you got off the net... if they are windows, use flip4mac to convert them to quicktime.


    If you are gonna watch them on a computer... just insert the DVD and copy the files to it like any other disc and burn it.

    If you want to edit them together, use quicktime pro or iMovie to import them, arrange them, add music, slides, text... whatever... and export them as a new movie.




    If you want to make a DVD that will play on a regular television dvd player... then import the movie into iDVD by selecting magicDVD...

    simple.


    If your'e on a mac.

    If you're on a windows PC, buy a gun and blow your brains out.

    Use the Windows media Player to burn a data disc to fit about 8 hours of video on one DVD. Use Nero or the free one posted to make a standard dvd to fit 2 hours on one dvd. If you are just learning to burn use the windows media player. Its very easy.

    Wow... noone really listened to you it seems. First, the fundamental breakdown:

    1. Extract the correct scenes from the existing DVDs
    2. Convert then compile them into a SINGLE movie format (using many DVD files) to put on a DVD
    3. Burn said DVD.

    Per #2... a DVD .. think of it as not dragging and dropping a bunch of videos... it needs to take all them and convert them into one giant show. when you convert 10 videos or whatever for DVD... it combines them, then splits them up for the sake of filesizes... into something you wouldn't recognize.

    Ripping them off the DVD is easy. There's a boatload of free/pirated software out there.... however, most aren't as easy as saying , give me track 3. You usually will be working with a "time/scene based" editor, where you pick the start and stop times from which to pull. Given you want particular scenes, and keeping in mind my point above... the scenes don't exists like "tracks" of an audio CD...

    The software, then needs to convert or do something with that scene..... convert it to AVI or MPG or keep in DVD formats (VOB) to store .. to pull again.

    Then, pending your (next) software, you might be able to just drag/drop or import those video files into a master disc... many new computers come with software to do just that thing. Some may want to re-convert everything, regardless.. which is a good 20-45 minutes. But they'll usually allow to create movies with creating menus, titles, and so forth.

    There's more advanced and intermediate program sthat'll allow to have more control, but takes a bit more deft. For me:

    AVS Converter... converts anything and everything into anything and everything. Comes with burning capabilities... but I prefer to stop after.
    I doubt HIGHLY there is one software program that will do that, much less with copyright protected DVDs.

    Nero, as mentioned, I highly recommend as well. and keep in mind... plan on wasting a shitload of blank dvds... not only trying to figure it out, but figuring out which DVDs work with your burner.... check it out on the net... you'll see discussion around "coaster ratios". I'm sure many LPSGers have enough "coasters" and have done rather artistic version with "coasters". I've had a few successful burns, but the audio is off, or it wont' play in my bedroom, or whatever...

    ... at least blank DVDs are pennies these days. Even the double layers might drop below a $1 soon.

    Here's just one option with Windows:

    Sony Creative Software - Vegas Pro, Vegas Movie Studio, and Vegas Movie Studio Platinum Edition

    Here are more Windows options:

    Video Editing Software Review 2008

    But since Apple QT Pro was indicated, there is a Windows version as well ? Both are equally economical alternatives.

    Apple - QuickTime - QuickTime Pro

    Also then there's:

    Apple - Final Cut Express
    Apple - Final Cut Studio 2

    Want to go totally free:

    Home | Ubuntu Studio

    But then you'll need a PC for that, not a Mac as Ubuntu Linux has abandoned PPC support ? My point for mentioning the Linux, you're going to have to learn the software and techniques anyway, each has it's own unique way of doing it. Each arguably as equally intuitive.

    Okay I did have an essay written out but here is what you need:

    Magic DVD Ripper 5.2.1 Build 6(New-with serial key) (download torrent) - TPB)

    I use a software called Amigo DVD Ripper which I know rips just scenes or chapters as well as whole DVD's. Not sure if that one does but it seems to be the best.

    Once you extract the parts you want to .Avi you may need a video joiner software (search at the site above) to join them all together. Note that they must all use the same codec and the same exact bitrate; they must be identical videos. ie you can't join one video that's 640x480 with one that's 320x240.

    Once you have joined them all together, they need to be converted back to DVD format...apparently the best is convertxtodvd but I use WinAVI video converter (again, search the site above).

    Then lastly you just need a burning software like Nero...

    PS: Video editing is for video editing...not ripping DVD's. If he wanted to add effects or increase brightness/contrast then maybe it would be applicable but for what he wants I don't think it is.

    This was a good thread, took my own link advice and converted my current Ubuntu 8.04 to Ubuntu Studio 8.04. I'm impressed with how good it is and what it has to offer.

    A few sudo apt-get installs later from terminal and Ubuntu becomes Ubuntu Studio media version, and the best part, it's free.

    You all rock! Thanks for your help -- I'll give a few things a go here and see what works for me.
