Nero
The DVD-Video format uses the MPEG-2 video codec for compressing video files onto a DVD. This compression allows a 4.38 GB DVD-R/-RW/+R/+RW to hold up to 135 minutes of video with significantly higher quality than that achieved with a VHS video or with a video CD. The disc can be played on most DVD players, which means, for example, that you can store home videos with very high quality. Computer DVD drives with appropriate software can also play DVD-Video. A DVD-DL disc (DL = double layer) doubles the storage capacity of a disc and, as a result, the space for a DVD-Video.

Letterbox refers to an aspect ratio transferring method with which, e.g. a video file with 16:9 aspect ratio is adjusted for the 4:3 television aspect ratio. Black bars are placed above and below the picture.

Encoding refers to creating a video in a defined video format, e.g. MPEG-2 or Nero Digital™
(MPEG-4) through data compression. A corresponding encoder is required for each video format.

SmartEncoding checks whether your contents are compatible with the respective formats or are coded into the respective format. This saves time so that coding of the formats can be dispensed with. The file is not converted only "packed differently". Thus, the contents maintain their original quality.

Bicubic interpolation is an image processing method. If an image is enlarged beyond its original size, not only are the four neighboring pixels analyzed to calculate the new resulting pixel, but other nearby pixels are analyzed as well. This way, the new pixel is interpolated based on eight neighboring pixels.

Advance Audio Coding is an audio compression method defined under the MPEG-4 standard. AAC has a higher compression ratio than other comparable formats (e.g. MP3) and achieves high audio quality starting at 64 kbit/s already. This encoding format is used, e.g. in online music stores and online radios.

Lanczos interpolation refers to an image enlargement method. The method was developed according to an algorithm created by Cornelius Lanczos. This interpolation method provides high quality and good sharpness levels. However, the actual visual resolution of the images is not increased.

Bilinear interpolation refers to an image processing method. If a picture is enlarged beyond its original size, the resulting new image pixels are calculated based on the average between the four neighboring pixels. The more a picture is enlarged with this method, the less sharp it becomes.

Advanced Video Coding is a video compression standard. AVC was developed for maximum encoding efficiency and makes it possible to produce good quality video compression at low bit rates. It is one of the mandatory video compression methods for high-definition television transmissions and for mobile devices (e.g. cell phones, PDA's).

Context Adaptive Binary Arithmetic Coding refers to an encoding method for digital video files. CABAC is an integral part of the H.264/MPEG-4 AVC encoding standard. Instead of variable-length bit strings, a different arithmetic encoding method that makes it possible to reduce the bit rate between 10% and 20% (and therefore reduces space requirements) is used.

Even though Nero Vision supports the creation of an unlimited number of video and audio tracks, it is recommended not to exceed five (5) video tracks in one project. Five video tracks containing Full HD clips with transition effects produce a complex timeline that can compromise system performance during editing, playback and exporting. User experience will vary depending on system configuration and operating system installed.

Nero Multimedia Suite 10 Platinum HD includes Blu-ray Disc Authoring for cinema-quality Blu-ray Disc and HD videos in Nero Vision. The new Picture-in-Picture effects generator makes adding overlays to high resolution video projects easy, and Nero Background Rendering allows for smooth, uninterrupted video previewing when creating complex HD videos.
From Blu-ray Disc to HD video, if you want to create your own digital videos, this solution makes it easy to create lasting memories. Use the latest AVCHD or MPEG-2 HD camcorders and save hours of editing time with Nero AVCHD and MPEG-2 SmartEncoding. SmartEncoding only renders those parts of your video that were modified during a recent edit (e.g. with transitions or effects) and leaves the other sequences untouched. The result will save you a lot of time when publishing your finished movie.
Nero Multimedia Suite 10 Platinum HD supports Blu-ray Disc and AVCHD playback, import, editing, and publishing to AVCHD or Blu-ray Disc. Additionally Nero Multimedia Suite 10 Platinum HD supports DV and HDV formats and includes a tape scan feature that allows you to quickly and easily preview and select scenes from your DV or HDV tape. Capture the pre-selected scenes and save time managing your video project and save hard disc space, too.
If you’re using mixed standard definition and High Definition footage in one project, Nero Video HD gives you an SD to HD conversion filter that boosts the picture quality to make it look like HD. Nero Multimedia Suite 10 Platinum HD also supports AVCREC playback.

Unfortunately it is not possible to convert an NTSC formatted DVD into PAL by copying
the disc directly.
But you can import your NTSC formatted DVD into Nero Vision and create a new DVD in PAL format.

Please note that in this instance, Nero Vision is not able to import menus of a DVD. You will only be able to create a new DVD using the main movie of your original disc.


To do so, please proceed as follows:

In the Windows start menu click on "Start" and subsequently select the following entries:

For Nero 10:
"All Programs"-"Nero"-"Nero 10"-"Nero Vision"

For Nero 9:
"All Programs"-"Nero"-"Nero 9"-" Nero Vision"

For Nero 8:
"All Programs"-"Nero 8"-"Nero Vision"

For Nero 7:
"All Programs"-"Nero 7"-"Photo & Video"-"Nero Vision".


The window "Nero Vision" will open.


Select "Make DVD" - "DVD Video" from the menu on the left hand side.

The window "Untitled Project [DVD-Video]" will open.


Import your video into the compilation.
The steps to import video differ in each version. In case you are not sure how to import your video please refer to the manual.

After your video is imported please click onto the "More" button in the lower left corner of the Nero Vision window.


The window "Application Options & Settings" will open.


Select "Recording Format Options" (or "Recording Settings")

The window "Recording Format Options" will open.


Select the tab "General"

Select "PAL" in the drop down menu of the "Video mode" area.

Confirm your settings with "OK".

Click onto the button "Next" in the lower right hand corner of the Nero Vision menu.
Proceed as usual to burn your movie to DVD.

Unfortunately it is not possible to burn a project set up for DVD to a CD or Blu-ray. Every project is dedicated to the respective Disc-Type.

If your project does not match the Disc in your burner, you will get an error message stating "Your compilation cannot be written on this kind of disc....".

Please proceed as follows so as to avoid creating your project completely anew:

After you have created your project please click onto the "Export" button in the lower left corner of the Nero Vision window.

The window "Export Video" will open.

Select a video format in the drop down menu "Format"

Select the destination folder in the "Output file" area.

The export process is starting.

Now start a new project with the disc type you wish to use as target and add your exported file into this new project. Now you can burn it to that type of disc.

Please note:
If you created a DVD project with a menu, the menu will not be exported to the video. You have to create a new Menu manually for your new project.
