Converting premiere avi files to bup,ifo,or vob files

posted in Encoding

I have several finished premiere projects(premiere 6.0)that I have made into avi files, but I want to put them on dvd rather than tape. What program can I use to convert the files to vob,ifo,or bup files so I can burn them to dvd using nero. A friend told me nero can convert the files but I don’t think it can. If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.

I wish some expert would have posted the answer. I have the EXACT same question. So far all I can come up with is a 3 step process. And the 3 step process seems can only be done by cucusoft programs.
1. Convert AVI to MPEG2
2. Convert MPEG2 to ifo
3. Burn ifo with Nero
That could also be a 2 step process if you have the cucusoft dvd burner. I think their burner burns MPEG2 straight to DVD.

Some expert PLEASE HELP!! Preferably suggesting WIN software on the GNU. reply


Hi, maybe you can try WinAVI Video Converter which can do the job as you demanded. You can get it from reply


look just use does exactly wat u me use it reply



I’m trying to use Cucusofts mpeg>.vob tool. I dont see option for .ifo files.
Anyway, each time I try it on an mpeg2 movie, at completion I end up with video_ts folder, and the .vob file, but size shows 0kb, which of course then wont open with any application. reply



How to convert avi to vob.
This guide is for people who just wants to convert avi.files to vob.files and burn them onto a DVD and thatâs it, not mess around with re-authoring films and all that carry on.

I put this step by step guide together because I found it hard to find out how to convert avi.files to vob.files, I could never find a straight forward answer for what I wanted to do, so if all your interested in doing is getting an avi.file and putting it on to a DVD to watch on your DVD player or play station then read on.

The first thing you should do is go to this site and download the âConvert x To DVDâ software, they have a trial option which you can download but the trouble with this is it will leave the companies name as a watermark on your film so I would recommend buying the software. Then install the software, if you donât know how to do this then double click on the .exe file and follow the instructions.

Next once you have the software go through the settings to what you want the software to do.

This is how I have my settings and I donât have a problem, it works perfectly for me and seems to play on anything I put the DVD in.

Firstly create a new folder in âMy Documentsâ or wherever you want the software to put the vob files and call it lets say âconvert-x-to-dvdâ.

Right now letâs have a look at the settings, this is based on the softwareâs version 2.1.14 (This is the one I use) but I canât imagine any updates of this software will be much different. Go to the âsettingsâ tab and click it, then click the âgeneralâ tab, under the âworking folderâ browse to the folder you have just create in âMy Documentsâ and click OK, all the options under that I have them un-ticked. Then select the âThemeâ you want.

Next go to the âlanguageâ tab and choose your language.

Then go to the âChaptersâ tab, both of my options are already ticked by default, the 1st option is âInsert Chapter Everyâ mine is set at 05:00 the next option is âFor Videos Long Thanâ mine is set at 15:00. But I have never touched these.

Next go to the âMenuâ tab, the 1st four options on mine are all un-ticked, then under the âDefault Titleâ Iâve just got mine as DVD, you can change this to the name of the film if you wanted but you must remember to change this each time you burn a different film otherwise all your films will be call the same thing this is why I have mine as DVD in case I forget to change it. Next you choose a background picture if you wanted to, you can choose say a picture of a film poster or even a picture of yourself! But this will only show on your DVD if you have the âInclude Menuâ tick which you can play around with later. Next âMax Entries Per Pageâ donât know what this means but mine is set to 4, Next âFont Type and Colorâ again Iâve never played with these but you can later if you want to.

Next go to the âEncodingâ tab, the 1st option is âLog Engine Massagesâ this is un-ticked, next âEncoding Quality/Speedâ Mine is set to âHigh quality / Slow Encodingâ then âTarget Sizeâ mine is set to DVD-5 (4400mb), next the âConversion Priorityâ mine is set at âNormalâ.

Next the âAudioâ tab, under the âDefault Languageâ mine is set to âUnspecifiedâ then under âAudio formatâ select âAutomaticâ, under that you see âAutomatically adjust sound level â Max. Gain 18dbâ mine is un-ticked and all other options under that are un-ticked.

Next go to the âSubtitlesâ tab and again the âDefault Languageâ is set to âUnspecifiedâ and the âAuto-select default subtitleâ is ticked.

Next the âBurningâ tab, the 1st option is âBurn Result To Dvdâ this will burn the vob files straight to a DVD for you when it has finished converting. All the options under this on mine are all un-ticked but you can choose want you want the software to do for you.

Next the âTV Formatâ tab, under âVideo Standardâ I wouldnât recommend choosing âAutomaticâ because I had some problems with this, I live in the UK so I picked âPAL (Europe)â but if you live out of Europe then I would choose âNTSCâ, I would also recommend reading a bit about this and find out what the differenceâs are between âPAL & NTSCâ because I donât know anything about these. Next is the âTV Screenâ again I had problems when I left it on âAutomaticâ so I just leave mine set on the â4:3 Fullscreenâ option.

Right, now you have set your settings you want, click OK.

Just check that under the âWindowsâ tab along the top has the âinformationâ & âlogâ options ticked so that if anything goes wrong for whatever reason it will tell you why.

Now your ready to convert them avi.files, go get your blank DVD and put it into your pc then click on the âfileâ tab along the top and click on âadd video fileâ and browse to where you have saved the avi.file you want to convert.

Then simply click the convert button and away it goes, it will recognise that you have put a blank DVD in your pc and will burn the film as soon as it has finished converting.

When you want to burn avi.files in the future you donât have to mess around with the settings, just âadd video fileâ and click convert! The way I have set mine up, I donât have to play with any setting and it works great. The quality and sound are perfect but the avi.file must be of good quality and sound in the 1st place otherwise youâll get the same output when itâs converted.

I hope this helps people, as I couldnât find anything like this when I have looking for information.
