DVD Flick Tutorial
Burn Any PC Video Format into DVD
To create a basic Video DVD that should play in a free
standing DVD player...try the following...
First...read the DVD Flick Guide to familiarize yourself
with the program.
Open DVD Flick and insert a blank DVD in your burner.
If your computer's Autoplay window opens....just close it.
Click the Project Settings button and go to...Video /
Target format...residents of USA...choose...NTSC /
Left click the Add title button and browse to your
Movie Clips and select the ones you want on the DVD.
You can arrange them by selecting one and then use
the Move Up and Move Down buttons.
Left click the Create DVD button / OK / Yes / Yes.
Wait while the DVD is created.
When the text "Finished Successfully" appears you
may close DVD Flick. Now you can eject your DVD
and play it in your DVD player.
At some point you may wish to purchase more
advanced software like Nero, Roxio, Ulead, etc...but
at least this is a start.
