DVD Authoring With Eyedea Worx

Eyedea Worx and Notion Worx are here to make creating custom media and merchandise as easy as possible for our clients, which is why offer so many different services.

Often when creating custom printed merchandise, graphic design is necessary to get a logo or custom artwork ready to print. When duplicating or replicating CDs, we sometimes have to help with creating a master when a physical CD or DDP is not ready.

For film projects, this often means creating a DVD title menu, editing video clips, or authoring a DVD master. DVD authoring is just one of the many services we can provide to clients to help make the process of creating custom DVD packages as quick and easy as possible.

AUHTORING

There are many options when creating a DVD master, and we are here to make sure create a product that is consistent with what you want to see. There are several things we will ask about when putting together a plan for creating your DVDs, including:

-Another important question is how you’d like the DVD to play. A common option is an autorun, where is where the DVD will automatically play from the beginning of main title without showing a menu first, and will continue to play on a loop. This is a great option for training videos or videos that will play in the background of a trade show or other event. Filmmakers and musicians often want to have a menu appear first to choose between clips or songs, in which case we can create a DVD title menu.

-Should you want a custom menu, we can author it with your custom background images and text. Simply email us the image you’d like for the background, the text you’d like to see, and any other special instructions and we will send you a proof of what the menu looks like before we create the master.

-Depending on the size and length of your video, the type of DVD necessary for your project is also important. A standard DVD is a “DVD5″ and can hold 4.7GB, which is approximately 3 hours of video. If the project has multiple files that go over that, a “DVD9” (also known as “dual-layer”) can hold 8.5GB of data. Dual-layer discs are going to be more costly, but will hold much more video, so it’s important to know how long the master will be before pricing out any DVD duplication or replication.

-If your files are digital, we prefer a high quality Apple Pro-Res files, which are a high-resolution video file that makes for the best final product. If you have another kind of file (such as a .MP4 or .WAV), those should still be very good quality, but might not be as sharp as a Pro-Res. We cannot take low-resolution files and create amazing looking video from it; whatever quality video you provide us is what will be authored into a master and ultimately produced, so the higher quality from the start, the better.

These are just a few things we will ask when beginning your DVD project that help us to create what you have in mind. Contact us to discuss the many ways that we can help YOU take your video and create a DVD!

ISO Files and How To Provide Us Your Video Master

We recently posted about how to provide us with your audio master for duplication and replication projects. We work with many different bands and musicians to provide high-quality CD duplication and replication, for which we prefer a master in the form of a DDP file or a physical audio CD.

Eyedea Worx and Notion Worx also handles many different film projects, from features and documentaries to corporate training videos and instructional DVDs. For video projects, our requirements for a client-provided master are much the same as with audio; we prefer an .ISO file or a physical DVD master copy.

Much like with a DDP, an ISO file is a single file that’s an exact representation of an entire video file. The contents of a disc can be precisely duplicated in a single ISO file, which means that we can then duplicate the exact contents of the video project without needing any additional instructions.

iso

An ISO file is the only file that essentially acts like a physical DVD, with all of the data intact. This is why we like to either receive an ISO or a physical DVD, as both are great for re-creating an exact video sequence. ISO files can be sent via a program like Wetransfer or Dropbox and can reach us from anywhere in the world, saving shipping time and cost.

If you have separate video files (like MP4, Apple Pro-Res, or any other video format), we here at Eyedea Worx can most likely edit the clips together and author a new DVD master, but this will require some additional time and cost. Cost for video editing and authoring will depend on the length of the video and particular requirements for the DVD menu, as well as total time is takes to complete all requests. We also will need exact instructions for editing and sequencing and will create a test disc for approval before moving forward with any duplication or replication; this extra time is often not possible if a job needs to be turned around quickly.

So when considering Eyedea Worx for your DVD duplication and replication, keep in mind that the best master you can provide to ensure accurate reproduction is either a physical DVD or a ISO file.

DDP and How to Provide Us With Your Master

cd

Eyedea Worx creates many CD projects for bands and musicians who have a new release to share with their fans.

Before we can replicate a musical project, however, we need to have a master that we can accurately re-produce while ensuring that the track order and audio quality remains intact.

There are several ways to provide us with a master, but our preference is to receive a DDP (Disc Description Protocol) or a physical replication-ready CD.  A DDP  file is basically a digital version of a completed CD, with all of the relevant information already attached to the files, including:

  1. -Files labeled DDPID, DDPMS, and DDPPQ (or SUBCODES) that all describe and organize the disc
  2. -A file that contains the audio data for the disc
  3. -A file that contains the CD Text information for the disc

A DPP is typically provided by an audio engineer or a mastering house and is the simplest, easiest, and most accurate way for Eyedea Worx to receive your master. DDP facilitates direct upload for duplication or replication and is a flawless delivery method to ensure that your copies will be exactly in the order that you intended.

ddpp

If you don’t have a DDP or a physical CD master, we can accept .WAV files. We prefer to receive these files through Wetransfer, a free service that allows users to send larger files.

Once received, we must burn a physical copy of those individual .WAV files in order to create the master copy for replication or duplication.

In order for us to take individual .WAV files and create a CD that matches what you envision for the final product, however, we will need you to send us some instructions before we create the master copy:

  1. -In what order do the tracks need to be sequenced? Even if the .WAV files are numbered in the file name, having a track list will ensure that we can get the order correct.
  2. -Do you want any gaps between songs? Typically there is a 2 second pause between each track on a standard CD, but we can create the master with either a 1 second gap or no gaps if necessary.
  3. -Do you want the project’s information text embedded  on the CD? This means that the master and all copies created will have the artist name, album name, and all track titles embedded onto it so that it automatically displays the information when played in a car stereo or in a computer player like Itunes or Windows Media Player.

Creating a physical master from .WAV files does require some time on our end, so there is a $25 fee to create a master from .WAV files. Embedding the text information also requires additional time, so there is an additional $25 fee to create a text-embedded master. Once the physical master is created, we will send you a test disk (there will be a shipping charge if you’re not in Denver) so you can double-check that the master is exactly how you intended before we make any copies.

So while we can receive .WAV files to create a master for replication, it is overall quicker and easier to send us a physical master CD or DDP that you’ve already reviewed to make sure that it is exactly the final product you want to create!
