video editing

Hi ppl, This isnt about image editing, more video editing, but wasnt sure where else to post it.

Ive been recording movie's on my digital camera of me my girlfriend and daughter and now i'd like to put them on to dvd. The files that come off the camera are .avi files, I have 7 so far ranging in size from 20 mins to 45 mins.
I have a program for converting the files from .avi to .vob its called winavi converter. But at the moment i can only burn 1 set of .vob files to the dvd, which means i would need lots of dvds, one for each clip i have.

Does anyone know how to burn multiple .vob images to a dvd? or a program that does it?

Or does anyone know of a good piece of video editing software that i can splice the 7 .avi files together to make one long file? I can then convert it to a .vob file and burn it like that.

i dont really want to copy my files into videocd format because of the lose of quality. I'd like them to be in dvd quality if poss.

can anyone help me out on this one fellas?

thanx

Nero comes with a basic dvd authoring package which will convert avi's to dvd format and allow seperate videos and chapters and can do basic menu systems

It is very basic but I found it simple and powerful enough to create a dvd from a vhs of my band playing with each song being selectable from a menu, I did however find it a bit lacking if all you have is one large .avi file but compiling several is a doddle

I like using " sonic my DVD' If there is no editing involved. Just to pull everything into one dvd it will place a little piece of each clip on the page or pages depending on how many clips. And each clip has a little movement. It works quite well. For editing out video like you really mean it I use VideoVegas. Sony owns it now but,it is still a great product it will allow you to do things that only the big boys in hollywood could do unless you had a small fortune. It comes with DVD architect for converting your projects and burning them. you will want to get those videos converted as those miserable AVI files (The Format) Really eats up space!! Remember to defrag a lot when doing video work. As deleting them off the hdd leaves huge gaping holes in your file system!!

A friend of mine had a copy of nero 6.6 with vision express.
Its a very good program for converting and burning to dvd, not to complicated yet it has enough options to do what you need.

I also use Nero 6.6 But I also supplement it with several free tools
1. Pecks power joiner for joining avi files
http://www.divx-digest.com/software/pp_join.html
2. Vitrual dub for correcting movie flaws and joining errors
http://www.virtualdub.org/
3 The divx codec to reduce file size
http://www.divx.com/divx/codec.php
If you install the codec you can then use it in virtual dub to compress your file size with almost no loss in picture quality prior to burning with nero or even your current burner

[/QUOTE]

You can do this within WinAvi Coverter, instead of choosing one avi file, put them all in one folder and select them all when inside winavi... this way WinAvi creates all the .vob files into one video directory. PM if ya need some more extensive deatails....

Apart from this Nero Recode is fine (nero express)
