need help with this ***** AIW 128 32megs and ulead vid studio 3 : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

hi guys ! (long post , sorry)

i know that some guys already have answered this question (and helped me via email : (thanx lnguyen) in this forum but i 've tried and tried again but couldnt managed to create my own vcd with the aiw 128

this is the problem !

i m capturing an mpeg 1 file with all the setting set as defaults :

format : mpeg 1 352*288 pal (i leave in france) format 4/3 , 25 i/sec gop : 15/3 video bitrate : 1150000 b/sec (could this be the problem ?) the option that is underneath video bitrate is called in french :performance d estimation du mouvement (i think its motion compensation in english) its set at 3 and its said that more is better but depends on the cpu speed , so i let it at 3 ! stereo , 224 kb/sec, 44100hz then i clik ok , ok , ok and i capture !

but ez cd keeps tellong me that my system clock reference is "1050" which is not compliant with the vdc standard !

i am very disapointed and i ve tried ur method lnguyen but i dont understand , it still wont work for me ...

but im a tough (lol) guy so i ve tried something else : i ve used ulead video studio version 3 (the one that came with my ati board) AND 4 first which one is the best,why ?

okay so i ve read the usefull post "mattias vs ulead" :-) but theres something i couldnt understand , u guys told him to enable the (cd compatibilyty) lnguyen wrote : "The one thing you must to do is to check the box underneath the window that says optimized for CD-ROM. If you don't check this box, the Mpeg1 file will not be VCD for me everytime"

where the hell is it ?? i cant find it , maybe its because im using a different version of this software ? (european softs are sometimes different...)

then i ,ve chosen to try anyway i ve choosed the pal vcd profile (which seems to be vcd compliant) good audio and vide bitrate , etc

and the capture starts ! BUT (hehe) after 20 minutes of recording , the soft tells me that either the bitrate is too fast for my hd drive or i dont have enough free space !! ( i have a 20.4 gigas 7200tm, udma 66 ) so i was a little bit surprised ? is it because ulead doesnt captuer in mpeg but in avi first ? i thought it wasnt the case ...

well thats all for now guys , sorry for this long and boring post but i really need some help caus now i dont know what to do anymore . jesus , if only ati had realeased a straight mpeg1/vcd complaint board , everyone would be happy !!!

I am using the same capture board and I was having the same problem. I don't think we can use this card to capture to a true VCD 2.0 compliance mpg. I always have to endcode my output to VCD compliance using Panasonic encoder or Ifilm Editor, before Easy CD Creator would accept my mpg files.

Hey guys just click on the add anyway when use EZ CD. Note the ! in front of the 1050 clock. This sign says it may not work on your DVD but it's ok to use. As long as the red X does not appear next to any of the data settings in EZ CD it will make the VCD for you. PAL video bit rate is 1120kbits/sec. In order for EZ to be happy the clock reference has to be at 1200. I dump EZ CD and go with Nero, 100 bucks shot to hell, oh well....

hi guys ! thanx for trying to help me ...

the reason why i dont choose "add anyway" with ez cd 4 is that there IS a big and stupid red cross coming with the "1050" number ...

i dont understand , i ve tried ur method and everything is set to default ... i really dont understand !! maybe its because ati screwed the european software , i dont see anything else , the problem is that i dont know anyone else who owns also owns the european version of the board :-(

once again i hope u will be able to help byebye
