In this Two Part video tutorial I will show you how to Create a Basic DVD using Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10 and Sony DVD Architect Studio 5.0.
There are many intial settings and preferences that need to be set correctly, if this is the first time you have used DVD Architect Studio 5.0. In most cases this only has to be done once, and from then on you need not worry about the back end settings.
DVD Architect Studio 5.0 may seem overwhelming in the beginning, but if you take it slowly and start with some basic projects, you will get the hang of it quickly. It is actually a very powerful program once you understand where all the important settings are located and how to customize them.
A very BIG TIP I will give you, is to go out and buy a small box of DVD-RW (Re-Writable Discs) to use as "practise discs". You can preview your DVD Menus in the program to see if they work properly, but once you actually burn the disc, it is not un-common to discover a small error on your behalf that needs tweeking. Therefore using Re-Writable Discs to practice with, can save a lot of wastage and money. Once you have the DVD working 100% correctly, then you can burn to a permanent disc like a DVD-R.
*Special Update - please read
Personally, I think the best way to make DVDs and BluRay Discs with Movie Studio and Vegas Pro, is to learn the "manual old fashioned way". This gives you maximum control over all settings and features. I have written an article in the FAQ section which explains the full workflow for preparing a video in Movie Studio or Vegas Pro for DVD/BluRay Disc production. Please follow this link:
