This guide shows you how to create DVDs from VCDs and/or SVCDs (movies, TV rips
or caps) with perfect AV sync (or rather the same AV sync as the original
The main difference of this guide to others is that I want to show you how easy
it is to identify source mpgs which will have sync issues in the final DVD. If
there are no "bad" mpgs then SVCD2DVD is used as normal (or other method). If
we identify one or more "bad" mpgs - we need to re-encode them first.
If you are interested in the theory behind all of this
Get your mpgs into a working folder. If you have BINs - rip (extract) the
mpgs using VCDGear/ISOBuster/SVCD2DVD
Fire up VirtualDub-MPEG2.
Drag an mpg on to the big grey area. VirtualDub-MPEG2 will import the mpg as
shown (takes about 10-20 secs):
The whole of step 2 takes about 15 seconds for a 450MB mpg.
Repeat this step for all source mpgs and so find out which are "good" and
which are "bad".
If you have identified mpgs with AV sync issues in step 2 - you must re-encode
them. If you identified none - this step can be skipped.
Fire up TMPGEnc. Close the wizard if it is shown:
Once you have your batch compiled click Run.
If you are having trouble loading mpeg 2 (SVCD) files you may need to install
If you identified AV sync issues in step 2 and re-encoded these mpgs in step 3
you now have source mpgs for your SVCD/VCD to DVD process. If you had no AV
sync issues in step 2 you will only have added a couple of minutes to your
whole process. Either way you are now ready to proceed with your SVCD/VCD to
DVD method of choice - safe in the knowledge that you will not have AV sync
SVCD2DVD is the easiest method -
see how its done
Please remember that if mpgs have different bitrates then they must reside in
different VTSs otherwise you will introduce AV sync issues in the DVD
